Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away, ere break of day,
To find our long-forgotten gold ...
The world is full of wonderful places and the Misty Mountains are no exception. These wonderful natural towers, overflowing with green bushes and trees, are stunning, but when surrounded by mist they become a mystical place right out of one of Tolkien's stories.
Local Artist Series: Geek+Tea met Brian at FanExpoCanada and we were immediately drawn-in by his mixed media art. In an attempt to woo his artistry skills to the tea side, we provided him with a sample of Misty Mountain and invited him to work with us. Turns out he was up for the challenge! Brian Hoang: "The concept for the Misty Mountain one is the contradiction of a brutish looking oaf of a giant gently sipping on a nice tea in a very refined manner. ... And yes, those mountain tops are indeed [real] tea leaves!"
You sir, have certainly outdone yourself!
Any Fellowship will enjoy the delicate florals of this organic Chinese green tea blended with jasmine and cornflowers; soothing and relaxing after days wandering the mountains.
