Wangxian Dual Tea Blends Set - Limited Edition!
I'm venturing out of the realm of Dungeons and Dragons for a minute to pay tribute to a fantastic story I fell in love with over the last year or so.
Mo Dao Zu Shi, also known as also known as The Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation, is a Chinese novel that has also been adapted into an animation, a live action drama (The Untamed), an audio drama, and a web comic.
These teas celebrate the love between the two lead characters! Each one is delicious on its own, but you can also steep them together for an extra fantastic drink.
You'll get two ounces of each of them.
Lan Zhan - A blend of white peony and a green pu erh with mint and vanilla. The green pu erh brings a subtle smokiness, similar to a gunpowder green. This tea is complex but with minimal bitterness, just a little astringency, while the mint adds a nice herbalness and cooling note on the end.
Wei Ying - A blend of black tea and chai spices with hints of chocolate and raspberry. I wanted to make this tea spicy, so it has a healthy amount of ginger in it. The chocolate and raspberry, while not in the forefront, help to give a nice sweetness in the back. Cinnamon and the chai spices shine most in this blend.
Story synopsis from wikipedia: Despite his merits during the Sunshot Campaign to bring down the tyrannical Wen Clan, Wei Wuxian (also Wei Ying) was feared by the world for the unorthodox path in cultivation he himself created. Thirteen years after he was killed, he is summoned into the body of a lunatic called Mo Xuanyu, who was rejected by his clan and despised by his family, therefore sacrificing his own body to Wei Wuxian so he could avenge him. He'll soon meet a cultivator from his past, Lan Wangji (also Lan Zhan). Together, they will try to discover the identity of the person to whom belongs the dismembered left arm they found at the Mo house. What they don't know is that this mystery will lead them to unravel what lies behind the tragic events that caused the death of many people and of Wei Wuxian himself.
