This was such a lovely little game!

I loved this game, really cute, seriously. Though it maybe took me a little more than it should have took me to get it right, but that's just cause I'm a little dumb

this game is too precious


I can't figure out how to get Horns alone.


this game is so wholesome

how do i get " Horns " ( which i seen someone use a nickname in  a hero and a garden )  to be alone

dont give the adventurer a second cup of tea and you can get horns alone

Wow! This game is so good, it's like a social puzzle! 

Its so cute <3 played it on mobile too!


obbsessed with all your games !! this is adorable :)


This game is so cute I love it and I love the background music it's so calming

Love the cute art style and the game. Thanks for making it!


I came here because I had an existential tea crisis and this helped



super cute, fun gameplay, and a nice storyline too :D definitely reccommend playing :>


eu amei com todo o meu coração. I love it <3

a foto do Yohan aaaaaaa


Great game! Really enjoyed the cute, short storyline and making the tea. Just fun all over.


I. Love. It


I love this game its so cute I wish there where more parts or like an after story but I really loved this game 


I almost have all the endings but Im stuck on how to get the adventurer to start up a chat 😔

SAME! Someone! Help us!!


To get the adventurer alone, you need to say no to brewing Horns a cuppa! Hope this helps <3


this was so cute! i loved learning about the characters and their designs are adorable! it was so much fun to try and figure out everything! loved this game so much!!

Super cute wish i had my memories wiped just so i could feel the joy of playing it for the first time!


A very cute and short story that I enjoyed, a slight issue I had was I had to click multiple times for the game to register the using of the same ingredients.

Same here I could only use an ingredient once in the recipe

(1 edit)

oh? i thought that was intended, huh... I can only get 1 of each no matter how much I click

this game was super cute :) <3


a great game.


i love this game so much! its so cute and whimsical and i like how you need to use trial and error to get a final answer!


Every time I try to launch the game it loads the language select screen, then when I press ok to select my language it all goes black. I can open the accessibility menu, take screenshots, etc. but there's no way to actually start the game. How do I fix this?

i have the same problem :(

Such a cute game! This was really enjoyable.


i may be more of a coffee person but i've never wanted a cup of tea more! this was such a sweet and simple game! super lovely!!!

this game was so lovely, thank you


Loved it :)

I loved the dialogs and everything

But i definitely want some more of that tea after that ending! I wish it was a series

Whimsical and cute !


i loved the awkward moments they shared and how both of them just wanted to talk to eachother.Its defiantly  one of my favourites! 


It won't allow me to use any ingredient more than once. How am I supposed to make the super sour drink if I can't use all Tangy Berries?!


happens to me too. :/
anyone knows why is that?

i think you can only do it with the tangy berries? if you are trying it with the tangy berries and it doesn't work then idk sorry!

hi! in order to put three tango berries in the drink, you need to fill out all the notes, it turns out. hope that helps! :)

Thanks man i'll try it ou

Im loving it! Your games are amazing!!! The dinamic and the tone is just right!

If anyone reads this, come see me read with my awesome voice! >:3


I played this on my phone and OMG, I love the story so much.


very cute game! i'm a sucker for the "i'm not supposed to like you because *insert reason here* but i do anyway" dynamic. also wish i could make all those tea combinations in real life!

omg yes

The dialogue seems to be TOO realistic and it kind of drags on in some places instead of forming part of a narrative. Like for example the excessive amount of times people interrupt each other on accident, or excessive pauses during dialogue... ... ... ... or repeating of information. These are realistic but not useful for telling a story in a game. Luckily there is that awesome fast forward button for multiple playthroughs but the writing could be refined so that such a thing isn't needed.

Everything else was spot on though. I love VNs that have mini games like this. The art work is great and the music is pleasant. 


While I get what you're saying, I gotta disagree. I thought the interruptions were just enough to let the player know that it's very awkward between Adventurer and Horns before it outright tells us. I don't think it would've felt the same without it


Id love to see more of your games! And maybe make it even gayer- I mean what did I say- Anyways, I love all your games and to realise I've almost played it all without knowing it was from the same creator! Keep making your games, I adore them all.


I love the character, I love the tea recipe, I love the story

the concept is cute >< i really like it..
