When she finds an injured tea dragon in the marketplace, young Greta – who is a blacksmith’s apprentice – returns the magical creature to its owner and learns the nearly forgotten art of crafting tea from the delicate leaves growing from the tea dragon’s bodies.
I found this to be the most refreshing fantasy comic I have read in a long time. The story Greta through 4 seasons as she meets Minette; a seer who has lost her memory, Hesekiel; one of the last remaining tea masters, and his partner Erik; a former adventurer who is now a paraplegic.
There are no grand adventures, no epic battles; just a little girl who finds a dragon and makes some friends. A delightfully progressive slice of life story with simple and beautiful art, about the only thing I can legitimately complain about is there isn’t enough of this. If this was a webcomic or a series, I would be reading it all the time. It’s very rare for me to find something so lighthearted yet well done and I find it perfect. 5 out of 5.
