# [texhax] Help Regarding \tcolorbox font size

I am trying to make a standardised box environment for a document. In the
preamble I am describing the features of the \tcolorbox and calling in
mybox.

I want all the text in the mybox to be smaller than the normal text in the
document.

While I am able to do it for each box using \tcbfontsize{0.8} in the box, I
am unable to put it as a *general *feature when I am defining "mybox"

The following is my code
====================

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{book}
\usepackage{tcolorbox}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\tcbuselibrary{most}
\newtcolorbox[auto counter, list inside=boxes]{mybox}[2][]{%
arc=0mm, enhanced, breakable, floatplacement=tp,float,
colback=blue!0!white,colframe=blue!65!black, fonttitle=\bfseries,
title=Box~\thetcbcounter: #2, #1}

\title{Tcolorbox:\\
Minimum Working Example}
\author{~}

\begin{document}
\begin{mybox}[label={tt:test-box}]{Caption for test-box}
{\tcbfontsize{0.8}\blindtext}
\end{mybox}
\end{document}
