I went to Lupicia at lunch time today to get some leaves for my after-dinner brew. I like their selection of Japanese green tea blend. My favorite is a blend called “Happiness” with green tea, rooibos tea, peaches, grapefruit, marigold and rose petals. It’s popular and always out of stock.
I was running late so I busted in there (without stopping to browse) and declared to the shop lady: “Excuse me, miss!! Can you please give me Happiness in tea bags??”
The shop went into complete silence for a couple of seconds until another customer said, “Oh my, how convenient. I want some of that too!”
It took me a while before I realized what I just said……
