Broken Leaf Tea
The pleasant scent of vanilla greets you when you open this pouch, and the dark blue cornflowers make it an aesthetic sight you almost won't want to brew. As you watch it brew, it takes on an unexpected hue, like rich amber or very dark honey.
As you hold a cup of freshly brewed Starry Night, the aroma might remind you of a cold morning or sick day when the only comforting thing you can think of is a warm cup of tea. It is similar to an earl grey, but not as bitter or dry. The bergamot brings a fresh, floral note to the beverage, and the tea has a silky quality you'll notice as you sip.
Dose: 1-2 teaspoons
Brew time: 3 to 5 minutes

Non-Alcoholic Replacement? Yes - this brew leaves dry tannins on the tongue that make one think of a deep red wine, dark ale, or strong beer.
