On the 8th Day of Steepster’s Christmas Swap Purrfect Cup sent to me, Butiki Tea’s Cantaloupe & Cream! When I opened the package and read her note I got so excited when I saw that she had consulted Stacy at Butiki, they have been on my list of tea companies to order from. I got even more excited when I read that she had recommended Cantaloupe & Cream, then my heart sank when I read that she was unsure and I was considering Raspberry Truffle, sure I love raspberry teas and truffles but I wanted to try the creamy cantaloupe confection! I sighed in relief when I read that she came to her senses (I’m teasing Purrfect Cup).
Gorgeous, delicious, cantaloupe and creaminess in a cup! I’m sure many if not most of you reading this have already tried this tea, if not you really must get you’re hands on some. I drink far more straight teas than flavored, but this is so natural and pure tasting. It’s not sugary or full of other non-related fruit flavors (you know how most fruit blends also contain apple, peach, pineapple, no matter what main fruit their trying to imitate.
This is spot on cantaloupe, as if Jelly Belly had made it, minus the tooth ache and over sweetness and unnaturalness of it all. Okay bad analogy, I only made it because the husband received a box of Jelly Belly’s on his mail route and I was impressed with how very pear the pear was but yes my teeth are still aching from he candy. This is much better!
So thank you to Purrfect Cup for following Stacy’s advice and sending us this gem of a blend. I love the tiny tin and am grateful there is a enough for a few servings so I can impress friends with this!
And a very merry Winter Solstice to all! We have snow here, yay!
