Thank you to Purrfect Cup for this tea to represent Eight Maids a’Milking in our 12 Days of Christmas Tea Swap! Yay! I have been wanting to try this forever … but somehow I always forget to order some when I place my orders with Butiki Teas!
This really is a perfect tea to represents eight milking maids. It’s so creamy and the cream taste here reminds me very much of the flavor of raw milk. I have not consumed a lot of raw milk, but, there were a couple of times in my youth when I visited a neighbors farm at breakfast time and I was treated to a glass of raw milk.
And the cantaloupe is amazing in this as well. The moment I poured the hot tea into my teapot, I could smell the cantaloupe – the aroma filled my kitchen. The flavor of the cantaloupe develops, with the first few sips of this being more about the cream than the cantaloupe, and now that I’m mid-way through my cup, the cantaloupe seems a bit stronger than the cream.
So yummy. YUM!
