Its spicy aroma, floral taste and 7mg of THC open your heart with each sip, while simultaneously opening your mind for a high that is, well, quite lovely. Each sachet also offers a discreet high you can imbibe to fly under the radar, and the even-keeled effects and easy intake method make this product ideal for any user.
I start each morning with a cup of tea, and my birthday weekend was no exception. I booked an Airbnb in Palm Springs to celebrate with a handful of my close friends, and was ready for the ultimate birthday getaway. Aware of my morning tea ritual, I decided to bring along a sachet of Kikoko’s Sensuali-tea.
“I felt the love we put into this delectable meal with every bite as I cherished each flavor, spice and friend around me.”
I know, I know, you’re thinking, “Really? A sensual tea just to hang out with your friends?” But hear me out. With the exception of cannabis, the only real aphrodisiac in this tea is rose petals, which can also function as an anxiety suppressant. The rest of the herbal ingredients, like licorice root and orange peel, all serve various innocent wellness purposes.
Being that I’m quite comfortable with cannabis and my friends, I knew that I was in a judgment-free zone with people that I loved—and would it be so bad if I showed them a tiny bit more TLC? We all could use a little more love in our lives these days, and after all, the package did say it was great for parties.
Feeling good about my decision, I warmed up a pot of water over the stove as I prepared to make my friends a special waffle brunch. While I typically go for a caffeinated strain of tea instead of this herbal variety, I felt like it would still do the trick to get the party vibes going—seeing that it was infused with THC. As I waited for the water to heat up, I sliced open the package and stuck my nose inside to get an idea of what I was in for.
I was greeted by an alluring wave of clove and cardamom with a hint of citrus—not quite what I expected, but my senses were aroused nonetheless. I snapped back to reality as my teapot screamed. I poured the boiling water over the teabag, and my mug filled with a rich, purplish-reddish liquid that gave off a light floral aroma. I blew on the steaming cup and carefully took my first sip of Kikoko’s Sensuali-tea.
Just as the initial aroma was surprising, so too was the taste. Given my spicy first impression, I was expecting some cinnamon or clove on my palate. I was instead met with a bouquet of hibiscus, lavender, and rose with a slight citrus punch. I took another sip and discovered the gentle baking spice notes as they delicately pranced around my taste buds. I added a touch of almond milk and stared down as the swirling tea turned a dusty purple that began to look eerily close to a sorcerer’s love potion. I took another gulp as my friends began to sleepily emerge from their rooms.
“I can see this being a great companion to date night on the couch, a Sunday self-care session, or even as a pre-game for a sexy evening.”
We put on another pot of tea for the group, unfortunately sans THC, and began to whip up some celebratory brunch. Flour began flying, potatoes were sizzling in the oven and the smell of waffles filled the air—it was a room of seductive scents to say the least.
As we sat down to our brunch together, I looked around the table at my friends’ smiling faces and was filled with love and admiration. These sweet humans had been with me through so much, and here they were, taking time out of their busy lives to celebrate little old me. Each one of them seemed to emit an aura of pure amour that left me feeling warm and fuzzy.
Enjoying this oddly euphoric attitude, I began to dig into my brunch, and it was like my food was feeling the romance too. I felt the love we put into this delectable meal with every bite as I cherished each flavor, spice and friend around me. I felt so privileged to spend the time with the people I care so deeply about in this new chapter of my life. I couldn’t help but swell with emotion and snuggly feels. I hugged each one of them around the table and truly thanked them from the bottom of my heart for sticking by my crazy ass through all these years.
To which they chuckled and unanimously agreed that that tea must be hitting. Which made me laugh so hard I started to cry and before I knew it, we were all giggling and belly laughing in one of those endless fits that you can only share with your closest friends.
Once we collected ourselves, we laid by the pool under the Palm Springs sun, and I lost myself in a deep basin of self-love, relaxation, and anticipation for my new year ahead: a moment and memory I’ll treasure for years to come.
When all was said and done, Kikoko’s Sensuali-tea opened a door to my heart that I truly wasn’t expecting. The expert combination of holistic herbs and cannabis all wrapped in a pretty tea sachet takes you to a place that’s warm and fuzzy without completely derailing your day. While I enjoyed this love potion with my friends, I can see this being a great companion to date night on the couch, a Sunday self-care session, or even as a pre-game for a sexy evening. No matter the circumstance in which you decide to try Kikoko’s Sensuali-tea, get ready for a ride you won’t forget.
