a gilded crimson-painted wagon, Room 80, Lich #20258

[Whatever Will Be, Show Room] RNUM: 20258
Silvery moonlight filters through the three portal windows which dot one side of this long, narrow space, falling on the crystal balls displayed on a shallow velvet-lined shelf running the length of the wagon below the windows. A dimly lit chandelier hangs overhead, casting flickering light and long shadows over the area. A glass-fronted display counter takes up most of the back wall, save for the space occupied by a crimson velvet drape.

a thick caramel paper packet Tea
Sweetest Transgressions
Full-bodied and dark, this black tea has a redolence so robust it can very nearly be tasted before it ever caresses the tongue. Swirls of rich caramel are awash in the smoky body of the beverage, strewn with hints of sweet vanilla that ebb and flow like a living sea. Just beneath the candied foreground, the taste of pomegranate hovers, thick and honeyed, adding subtle notes of fruit to the nearly sinful experience of this tea.
Pomegranate, sweet and syrup-thick, provides the foundation upon which the flavors of this black tea have been built. The dusky sensation of the tea itself is made silken by an infusion of pure vanilla that accents, rather than obscures, the notes of caramel that swim throughout the beverage. Warmth creates a feast of aromas, the sugar-drenched fruit delivered to the nose on a smoky waft even as the tea passes the lips.

a cherry red parchment packet Tea
Capricious Grace
In the sweet aroma of the white tea, a hint of rose stirs like a specter at midnight hour. Barely there, the blossom's presence comes and goes amid a roiling sea of cherry infusions the darkest of sweet black cherries colors the brew a roseate hue, while paler cousins bring a tart note that swims just beneath the surface. Amid the floral and fruit blend, a dash of green cardamom mellows the concoction, taming it with a smoky warmth.
Subtly bittersweet, the tea's bouquet is a varied and complex masterpiece. Ripe black cherries further sweeten the white tea, which is made impossibly softer by an infusion of rose that teases the senses at each encounter. In the background, tart berries bring balance to the honeyed presence of lush cherries, and a suffusion of green cardamom blankets the palette in a smoky shroud.
200
a swirled colorful paper packet Tea
Perennial Ponderance
The soothing presence of white tea mellows the addition of black in this blend, while a myriad of fruit flavors intermingle to create a beverage unlike any other. Behind the bitter-tart bite of lemon and cloudberry, a honeyed infusion of peach rises to combat the sharp intrusion. As the palate is neutralized, a combination of berries - smastan, bil, and goose in variety - becomes unmistakable in the forefront and is laced with a hint of bergamot.
Under a thread of bergamot, the mild taste of white tea blends with the bold flavor of black to produce a curious balance between a wild confusion of fruits. The sweet comfort of peach is dulled by the bitterness of lemon and the tartness of cloudberry, while a mixture of smastanberries, bilberries, and gooseberries unite to return a hint of honey-sweet to the tea.
