The first time Monica Snapjaw ever tasted Silopan tea, she gagged. The bitter fluid burned her esophagus as it made its way to her stomach. A single drop went down the wrong pipe, and she began to cough until she nearly vomited. The last cogent thought that went through Monica’s mind before the effects of the tea kicked in was, “What have I done to myself?”
It was Maxwell who showed her where to go in the forest to find the innocuous looking flower whose petals were needed to brew the concoction. Despite the egregious flavor, she managed to drink it all in one quaff. In short order, just as Maxwell had promised, Monica found herself hovering above her own rooftop, the wind making havoc with her long, dark hair.
