Tea may not cure cuts and bruises, but it can sure mend your soul. Any light wounds your mind endures on a daily basis can be instantly assuaged with this borderline-magical blend. Traditional Chinese shu pu-erh, a rich fermented tea with an intensely earthy flavor, is mixed with just a hint of white tea buds to give it a fine, thin texture. Then, this blend of teas is introduced to a natural white chocolate flavor extract to give it that sweet, intense flavor we all love.
Why does this blend not include white chocolate nibs, you may ask? Mostly because chunks of white chocolate just don't dissolve into hot water in the way we want them to. They never taste right, they usually won't dissolve, and even when they do, the flavor just doesn't come out. We instead opted for a flavor extract from natural sources to give you the flavor you crave.
Cure Light Wounds is great by itself, needing no longer than a short minute-and-a-half steep, but it definitely likes sugar. It also makes a very pleasant latte (again, sugar definitely helps the flavor), or even traditional English-style milk-and-sugar!
