TEA SEASON - Natural Botanical Perfume - The London Fog
| The London Fog |
Pour a sultry cup of steeped earl grey tea and drizzle it with sweet cream and raw honey. Pull a fresh jasmine flower from the unruly blooming vine and tuck it into your tousled locks. Slip into something more comfortable. Curl up in your favorite leather chair, drape your shoulders with a silk crocheted shawl, and get lost in a book of poetry.
Earl Grey is my favorite tea, followed second by lapsang souchong. But earl grey made into a London Fog by steeping in warm milk with a drizzle of raw honey and a splash of homemade vanilla extract ... there is something beyond perfect about it. Bright yet bold, tannic yet creamy and muted, uplifting and calming at once. Cool new England mornings call for steaming cups of tea on the three season porch. I often work first thing in the morning - in my nightgown, before the thoughts of real life get to me. My mind is still half dreamy, I have no concern with my long wild hair, and my senses are open and receptive. If I have been working on a new perfume, I will dip a scent strip in it, collect my mug, my computer, and beckon my giant white cat Max. I shuffle myself onto the chartreuse couch in the porch for some thought and analyzing. Max splays his fluffy body along my side, and I sip my earl grey as thoughts come and ideas float. It is a sensual experience, cozy and romantic, and always nostalgic, as the hints of summer thin a little more each day.
Tea Season features an artisan tincture of earl grey tea, vanilla beans, and hard to find black tea absolute.
