This dark, earthy blend evokes the damp tombs of Poe’s stories. While it is perhaps the most well known, The Cask of Amontillado is not Poe’s only story in which his fear of being buried alive becomes a major plot point. His vivid description of “utter darkness among a quantity of loose earth” that “threaten[ed] to bury [him] entirely,” offered  direction for this blend. It combines the earthy tones of Pu-erh black tea with the mellow smokiness of Lapsang and the slight citrus hints of Earl Grey. The dried beetroot turns the brewed tea a deep blood red.
