This blend begins with a peak quality Cederberg Rooibos known for its herbaceous character and long smooth finish. Added to this is chopped pieces of pure vanilla, decadent morsels of cacao bean and peel, natural flavoring oils and sunflower petals. The resulting blend is a true stunner. The cup opens with the approachable sweetness of vanilla bean offset by deep notes of chocolate and hints of chopped nuts, citrus and orchid.
Lady Godiva, the 11th century Anglo-Saxon noblewoman who rode naked through Coventry England. Godiva's ride was taken in protest of the taxes her cruel husband had imposed on the town's peasants. Why did she care? Godiva was a lover of the arts. Legend has it that the peasants, what with all the tax they were paying, weren't able to help pay for public art projects.
