Here we are. The tea I’ve been dreaming about trying for the first time for the past week and a half. Now that it’s here, ready to be tasted, I’m almost scared that I hyped it up in my head to unrealistic expectations.
The tea leaves are beautiful. So beautiful, I almost want to take a picture. Or even more silly, find some sort of glass container and dump them in and make them a decoration. But the smell is far too appealing to waste them like that.
… And … oh … my … word. This is cantaloupe. I’m almost confused. My taste buds are telling me, “This is not tea. This is a cantaloupe. Juicy sweet cantaloupe. FRUIT.” But my brain argues back “No, no, this is tea. Granted, delicious tea, but tea nonetheless.”
“TEA. Just take a look if you don’t believe me!”
Okay, no idea where that came from. Hopefully my lapse into crazy town will be enough to convince you that this is truly a magical cup. Thankyou so much Stacy, it’s so delicious. Please never discontinue this tea. Ever.
EDIT: Hang onto those leaves. I’m on the second infusion now, and the cantaloupe flavor has become more prominent. This cup’s even MORE delicious than the first! :D
