Light Reading .. don't expect any plot.

This story has a few main characters and with every chapter you get a different character's perspective. There's no plot and everything revolves around the staff of the tea shop and the people related to the tea shop. There was this touching story about an old friend of the owner's and his cousin which I really liked. But other than that, it was about love, love and more love. It's really nice for light reading especially if you don't want to deal with plot and the reason why the owner of the cafe is in love with the tomboy is also very vague (they had sex at first sight) but if you don't bother about it, the artwork is nice to look at and the story is light-hearted.

Recommended if you just want to spend some free time reading manga.

I really like a tasteful smut manga. This sounds a bit contradictory, but it's really very well played out. The interaction between the characters is sexy, but genuine. You can tell they have real feelings backing up their actions, which I find adorable. It's the best kind of smut.

The pairings also have something for everyone. Kaoru and Kagetsu have an interesting relationship, that you see sort of commonly in this type of manga. However, it's really cute, because they both obviously want it, despite Kagetsu being so pushy. :x
Megu and Maku have a Childhood friend/Tsundere romance, which I really liked the most.
And Tomomi and Omi are so innocent and adorable. I doubt that will last for long, though, this being a smut manga, hur.

Though seriously, what was with the insta!sex between Kaoru and Kagetsu. She wasn't even mad, she was just like, "LOL I R NAKED ON THE FLOOR".

Great sense of self preservation there.

It can be a little sappy but I've always liked this story and the couple from the first chapter (chapter 0) are my favorite. I find it funny, cute, and sexy and so on and so forth.

To the person who feels that the first chapter portrays 'rape' and being 'drugged', I dont really agree with that assessment because after reading the entire Chapter 0 thoroughly, I better understood what was really going on with the girl in that respect.
I'm not trying to be insulting or anything but I thought that that assessment was a little unfair for the story.

First of all, the relationship development between the two protagonist is too quick for my taste. I was shocked by rape in the first chapter and the reaction of the girl. Being drugged and then sexually assaulted is a very serious thing and she was too nonchalant about it. She was introduced in a very innocent way, so you never expected her to be a non-virgin (EDIT: My bad. She said it "hurts" so I assume she was a virgin, which makes the whole rape thing even worse because of her reaction). I can also tell that this manga is inspired by Ouran High School Host club, only this has a little twist to it. It's smutty, it lacks character development, and the emotional depth. I have to admit, however, that I'm a fan of sexy, shallow manga.

the art is easy on the eyes but thats about it. a weak character that gets pushed around by an egotistical a$$hole. he basically rapes her and shes too stupid to stop him from continuing sexually harassing her.

It left a bit of an episodic impression on me, with every chapter focusing on another couple within this cafe.
I really liked the idea of "serving tea based on the impression of the customer".
All in all it's a really nice read (though no chapters have been released lately >.<) with nice characters and intriguing character interaction.
The art is good, not exeptional but it was really to my tastes.
There's not too much smut in here so don't come looking for only that (the few smut scenes and the couples interactions are really sexy though)
I gave it a 10/10 since this series deserves a bit more attention imo.

I only managed to finish chapter 1. I'm glad I finished the chapter but I wouldn't want to read it again. The girl looks like a boy but I would prefer an actual boy to a boyish girl. For me the feeling I got from this was cold and the characters were annoying. The only interesting part was the beginning and the ending. Everything else was bland. The sex was boring as well. I prefer strong willed female leads which make for a better story even if there was no sex. Basically the girl is weak, the guy is a jerk, and there was no warmth or love. This lacks both aspects that make a good romance and/or smut manga, a heartwarming story and sexy sex scenes (which is why I like boys love). The cover is nice but is misleading which is why I'm disappointed.

These are the worst types of shoujo.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The first chapter pretty much encompasses rape of a minor, blackmail, and extortion.

People can label it "sexy" all they like, but a spade's a spade.

I implore you to look elsewhere for your entertainment.

The first short story, "Marron Brandy Tea", is sexy, funny and intriguing, so this series looks promising. I already dig Kaoru (who is the real main character) much more than Mio from "Desire Climax". Kagetsu is slightly overbearing, but at least Kaoru isn't unwilling. I hope he doesn't disappoint me, but I'm feeling pretty good about them. Jump on this one, it's off to a good start!

I'm not pleased with this story. The characterization is weak and they fall in love far too quickly. The main character is cliche and the plot is mostly annoying. From the first chapter I could tell that it wasn't really going anywhere.
It's horrible.
