Description: My wife has been asking me for this blend for months. Sometimes I ask her what I should blend next. She likes to throw out ideas, and most of the time, I say, “Nah,” which irritates her to no end. “Why do you ask my opinion if you never listen to it?” Well, wifey of mine, I do listen. I don’t always act immediately, but I do consider everything you say.
So, here, for my lovely wifey, is a gunpowder green tea blended with almond slivers and freeze-dried cherries. I love you, Sheri.
