Odin's Armpits - Cinnamon Lapsang
We can only hope the smell of sweat permeating the battle fields of Valhalla and Asgard smell better than our own. With this assumption, we invoke the All-Father's battle-weary body with this barbeque-esque blend of smokey lapsang souchong black tea with potent cinnamon and rich black walnut. A completely unique blend, you'll have to try this to believe it.
