One of our faithful followers, yuumegari, submitted to us a custom tea blend inspired by our series mascot, called Kupo Nut Tea.
Moogles are well-known for their addiction to Kupo nuts. I imagine they would taste strongly of almond and vanilla, with a hint of sweetness from the honeybush. Tastes best with a drop of milk and a spoonful of sugar.
‘I’m Kupo for Kupo nuts!’ ; A blend that could be as comforting as a Kupo nut for the zany moogles in the Final Fantasy series.

Water hot and weather cool,
And in your cup, a magic pool,
Filled with liquid, the amber brew,
And with a sip, the chill is slew.
But alas, the tea is hot,
And drinking is a patience not,
So you leave it be,
And let the prospect rot.
Then time shall pass,
And that wispy gas,
Will be a dream long forgot.
But oh, that curse of brew too warm,
Pales in comparison, to the storm,
Of drinking a tea that’s cold
And feels weary like a heart of old.
Disappointment fills the soul,
We say farewell to our control,
Of temperature and tea’s neglect.
As we pour away the last remains,
We lament on the pain,
And with a sigh,
Then a silent cry,
We repeat the ordeal again.
The first sip of tea is always the hardest.
that isn’t supposed to be inspirational, I’m just stating it’s fucking nerve-racking waiting for it to touch your lips and potentially having it melt your face off
