According to the celebrated French poet Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891) a poet‟s life ain‟t easy:
"A poet makes himself a visionary through a long, boundless, and systematized
Disorganization of all the senses. All forms of love, of suffering, of madness;
he searches himself, he exhausts within himself all poisons,
and preserves their quintessences.”
While we knew the artistic temperament was on the sensitive side, we certainly didn‟t know it was that bad. Now that we're in the loop however, we‟re pleased to offer a wellness blend that is all but guaranteed to quell the “suffering”, “madness” and “poisons” faced by the wordsmiths of the world and just about anyone else.
To create the blend, we started with Egyptian Camomile, long prized for its soothing qualities, threw in a dash of Lavender in homage to the ancient poets of France, added some peppermint to help keep the mind alert and topped it off with our own Bourbon St. Vanilla Rooibos for an antioxidant boost…and we all know writers like Bourbon.
The result of our blending? We like to think of it as poetry in a cup. With deep floral notes tempered by vanilla and earthy rooibos, the cup tempts the tastebuds, soothes the nerves and calms the spirit. We‟re certain that were he alive, Arthur Rimbaud would have our sales desk on speed dial.
