INFORMATION: Did you know that the tea you are holding is lucky? First of all, it's organic, so no pesticides or chemical fertilizers were used in its manufacture. Ok, that's the result of careful organic processes more than luck, but it's still a good thing! Secondly, peaches and apricots are both fruits that have been considered lucky by various cultures over the centuries.
Ancient Japanese folklore tells the tale of Momotaro, the "Peach Boy", born from an enormous peach his parents found floating down a river. Legends tell of Momotaro's great adventures to help bring prosperity and peace to both his parents and his village.
Half a world away, in old England, old tales deem Apricots to be good luck when they turn up in dreams. The ancients believed that such a dream would result in immediate prosperity and recognition for your deeds. Certain legends indicate that King Arthur himself dreamt of Apricots regularly.
This tea is a delight. The citrus flavor of peach swirls and mixes with the sweetness of apricot in a way that tingles the tongue. Try a cup with a dash of milk, and a touch of sugar - then let us know how you do in the luck department!
