Toronto Nights is one of the most consumed teas by tea lovers. One of the first signs of attraction is its aroma of icy cedar with citrus and almond touches.

Its flavor is also very characteristic due to the blend of fruits and herbs.

Before the colonization of North America by the English and French, the Mohawk Indians received an unexpected visit from strange people with slanted eyes.

These were Chinese merchants looking for trade routes on their eastern side as an alternative to the Silk Road, which was becoming increasingly unsafe due to the rise of bandits assaulting the merchants.

The tribe’s sorcerer predicted that these slanted-eyed merchants would bring prosperity to the northern territories due to the large number of exotic ingredients they carried with them for trade.

One of these traders brought to the village a huge bowl that he filled with river water and heated.

And when it began to boil, he added from a sack of esparto grass, dry leaves and from another sack some spices unknown to the Indians.

They all sat around the fire and waited patiently for the infusion to be ready.

According to the story, this mixture had been made thousands of years ago and extended the life of anyone who drank it.

The Indians acquired the knowledge and ingredients to make this infusion, and over the years, it became part of the Mohawk’s nightly ritual, who considered these herbs and spices sacred.

Many years later, when French traders and settlers expanded into the northern lands, present-day Toronto, there was talk of a pagan nighttime rite in which the Mohawk prepared a potion around songs and dances.

From then on, this potion with properties that granted eternal youth came to be called Toronto Nights. Mitos y Leyendas says goodbye for now and hopes you liked this story of this white tea. See you next time!»
