If this robust, full-bodied day-starter is your favorite, you’re ready for adventure, and a time traveling thrill ride might be the perfect match.

She is a descendant of Cotton Mather who was responsible for the Salem with trials, and she soon discovers that she is at the center of a centuries-old curse affecting anyone with ties to the trials. While your tea steeps, you’ll love watching this mystery unfurl.
