Kiki’s evening tea tonight :)
“Black tea. It’s a little creamy when I smell it. Kinda like that African tea has that smell. she breathes it in for a good minute then finally sips It’s kind of a little fruity, like cantaloupe. I think it’s a… I think it’s a… one of those natural flavorings. It’s alright. What do you think?”
I steal a sip. I think it’s creamy and coconut.
“You mean like coconut flavoring?”
No, real coconut.
“Like grated coconut. Yeah I can see that. Like coconut water-y. I don’t think I’d buy this, though. What’s in it?”
Black tea, rum flavoring (which might be where you’re getting the fruitiness from)—
makes a double-take face, sips again “—Oh, yeah, uh-hm, I get that now.”
And strawberry leaves, coconut and orange safflower.
“I was gonna say orange!”
That’s probably the base tea. You know, like orange pekoe often has kind of an orange tone to it.
“Right. Thank you, gmathis. You’re very sweet :) You’re sweeter than the tea. And thank you very much!”
