I’m adding another note for this one and increasing my rating because it was SO SO GOOD this morning.

I steeped it for 5 minutes in my favorite ceramic travel mug, added 1 heaping teaspoon of sugar and two teaspoons of very upscale coffeemate original liquid creamer and headed off on my hour long nightmare commute.

With my tea thus fancily prepared, I took a sip. And it was heavenly. (Heavenly the way Dunkin Donuts coffee is heavenly, but heavenly nonetheless). Thick, malty, and overly sweetened and ‘creamy’, just what I needed to go sit in bumper to bumper traffic and contemplate how much I dislike my job.

This has replaced PGTips for my strong morning cup, it brews up less minerally and I’m quite taken with the beautiful color.

Bio

Here are the things I drink: Tea, water, coffee, beer, whiskey, wine.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a little girl, but only recently began learning about tea and drinking loose leaf.

I prefer unflavored tea to flavored, tea leaves to tisanes, but I’m not inflexible and will try nearly anything.

I’m still learning, so thank you in advance for your patience and your help.

Also, I had to come up with a way to quantify my ratings because I was being really inconsistent:

100-90: Delicious, must keep in stock.

89-80: Excellent, a definite reorder.

79-70: Good, an occasional reorder.

69-50: Pleasant, but it was a one night stand.

49-30: Not good, but drinkable.

29-20: Bad, but I finished the cup.

19-10: Terrible. Couldn’t finish a cup.

10 and below: Undrinkable, requires mouthwash and counseling.
