This tea is inspired by Marcel Proust's famous literary episode: In Search of Lost Time, in which the author is immediately transported to his past with a sip of tea mixed with a piece of cake.

This is my very favorite tea. I am sharing with my friends in the Virginia Camellia Society on Thursday afternoon.
