So last night my daughter was finishing up a project on mythology for her Latin class when she realized she’d misread the directions and did a large part of the project incorrectly. Normally this is the sort of thing that sends me over the edge, but I had to read the directions multiple times before I understood what the teacher was asking for, so I couldn’t be mad at my daughter. After I got her out of panic mode she and I worked on the project until 2am. The poor kid (and her mom) had to wake up at six this morning, so I knew we needed a good strong tea.

Oh, this tea. It’s such a cup full of malty deliciousness. It has rich crusty notes but also something that just hints at cocoa. The thickness of it reminds me of a good French roast, but this has none of the bitterness. Add some sugar and milk and it is the perfect builder’s tea. And now that I have my daughter and the project from hell on their way to school I can enjoy this cup for a few minutes until it’s time to get my son up and moving. Thank heaven (or Jupiter or Juno or Ceres) for tea!

I don’t know who should be commended more. Your daughter for caring enough to get it right or you for helping until 2am.

Oh, thanks! I remember my parents helping me when I was a kid, so now I figure it’s my turn. :) My daughter is the epitome of perfectionist, so it’s not in her to do a bad job on anything that receives a grade (the state of her room is another story).

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
