The perfect compliment to a cloudy day is a pot of Jasmine Special Grade; a green blend whose aroma evokes daydreams of springtime. 😍🌸
Redid another old favourite of mine from Bretlan, this time my teapot. Only slight changes but enough to make the design feel more complete.
Cupetee and Kettea were imported to Bretlan during the height of the Brettish Empire. Their popularity stems primarily from the brew they create from the leaves in their diet. The leaves they eat are left to stew in a compartment prior to the stomach, which is flooded with incredibly hot water so that they break down and are easier to digest. This brew can be drained voluntarily from a trained Kettea and served as a drink whilst the pulp from the leaves is digested by the Kettea.
Cupetee aren’t as capable of this process as they cannot maintain the high temperature necessary to break down the leaves and as a result there is less of the resulting liquid which is also much more bitter. Shoals of Cupetee are lead by a single Kettea in groups called ‘sets’ or a 'China’ and are kept more often nowadays as ornamental inhabitants of ponds and lakes. Traditionally these pokemon are passed down families through generations or as gifts for weddings.

I needed a new teapot and then I ended up getting a new strainer and some tea samples while I was at it.
Still reading, still loving every word Zena Hitz writes 🥰
If you enjoy the smell of books, you would LOVE the aroma of Hōjicha.
What makes this green tea unique from others is how it is roasted over charcoal in a porcelain pot instead of being steamed, offering up a refined flavor that pairs beautifully with Dorian Gray. 🔥📖
