An annual tradition in Vienna is the Vienna Opera Ball. During this time the well-heeled polish their medals, dust off 19th century and early 20th century military uniforms, and take to the dance floor with wives or mistresses who are bedecked in flowing evening gowns from a bygone era. The best orchestra in the land is playing the Johann Strauss waltzes that made Vienna the music capital of the late 1800's. The River Danube flows gently past the windows of this classic evening transporting all to a mystic land of romance and chivalry.
This tea, with its hint of sultry jasmine reminiscent of romantic evening, transports one to this special event. We recommend that this tea be prepared for special occasions with friends, quiet candlelight and Johann Strauss' Emperor Waltz or Waltz of The Blue Danube softly playing in the background.
