Omg, Guerlain makes teas named after their fragrances.
i’m in tears, there’s a shalimar tea, it’s like all my dreams have come true at once:
“A subtle blend of green and black teas from China and Sri Lanka, flavored with vanilla, bergamot, cinnamon, lavender, and natural aromas of cardamom. This tea recalls the rich and compelling character of the very first Oriental perfume.”
"Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand."
- W.B. Yeats, The Collected Poems (via borgevino
