Inspiration: Maid in Bedlam
Maid in Bedlam was a song that I had the pleasure of hearing when I visited
out in Texas. I fell instantly in love with it and brought it back to
with hopes that they would love it just as much.
When I started into the idea of blending teas for the music that the band sings I felt like maybe this would be any easy blend. Honestly it wasn't. Floral flavor profiles tend to be incredibly light so I had to make sure that nothing overpowered anything else. I knew that I wanted to quote the song in the tea,
"With straw I'll weave a garland, I'll weave it very fine
With roses, lilies, daisies I'll mix the eglantine
And I'll present it to my love when he returns from sea
I love my love because I know my love loves me"
I wanted the roses, daisies and lilies to be present in the blend. Even if that meant having a representation of them instead of the actual flowers.
This was the third blend I ever successfully created.
