drank Cantaloupe & Cream by Butiki Teas
1195 tasting notes

Eeeee so exciting, I just made 32 tubes of Pumpkin Chai lip balm. It feels SO NICE on my lips but I can’t really smell it anymore, everything smells like spices and pumpkins. Now I just have to figure out how to make labels and then I’ll put them on etsy! But probably not before I make more. I am addicted to the process. The next batch probably won’t even be the same because I think the best part was the trial and error of getting the perfect consistency. It involves a lot of spoons in the freezer.

I actually went into the kitchen to make this tea, and ended up making the lip balm. Welp. After filling all the tubes, I finally did so. Do you ever notice that tea steeping time is the perfect time to empty your dishwasher? I hate doing it, but somehow it always ends up emptied and then I fill it with dirty stuff while the tea cools a bit. Before I was drinking tea, I just hated dishes. Now, it’s okay!

Since I had the persian melon tea last night, I wanted to have this one again today, plus I have a decent sized order coming in from Butiki tomorrow so better drink up. This one is indeed better, just based on the melon flavor alone. It tastes like a fresh, perfectly ripe melon, dipped in cream.

Ahhh looking back at my first note, I put some coconut milk creamer in. I don’t want to open up my carton but that was so good.

I ended up making my labels and let this get cool. I think the second steep might have to be iced. YUM.

I definitely do the dishwasher-emptying-while-steeping too! Thought I was the only one :p
Can’t wait for those lip balms to be up on etsy — mm, pumpkin chai :D

Mmmmm, Pumpkin Chai lip balm sounds awesome. Yes! I always empty the dishwasher while the tea is steeping.

Oh wow, sounds great! The tea, too. Is it weird that I though “I should totally ask Amanda to show me how to make lip balm some time”, but then remembered that we live on opposite sides of the planet….

It always feels like it’ll take forever, and then you realize you’re done before even 3 1/2 minutes is up!
