Golden Slumbers is a smooth, soothing tea to drink before bedtime, with hints of nutty flavour that for me, harken back to childhood, when my Mum would take us off to bed after a nice warm cup, and of course, our bedtime stories. Some memories never fade. And when neither of those did the trick to get my sister and I off to sleep, Mum would finish off with a soothing rendition of the lullaby
“Golden Slumbers, kiss your eyes
Smiles Awake you when you rise
Sleep little darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby"
(Anybody still awake?)
Golden Slumbers holds another memory of Paul and Ruth slugging it out together on the piano when she couldn’t quite master the sheet music. He sat beside her and they worked on the chords, and she was so happy when she heard him singing it on the Abbey Road album.
Toasty and nutty notes leap from a cup that is also sprinkled with lightly vegetative flavor throughout.
