I am definitely not going to rate this one based on the steeping I just had. My tea travel mug decidedly expands in size when it’s hot, so after putting the boiling water in, I couldn’t get the filter lid back off (I had it in because I was leaving the house and the next cup I planned to make was loose-leaf).

So the teabag was trapped (Can you picture this? I feel like I’ve failed). And as i drank this it got progressively more bitter and oversteeped. Still, I enjoyed it so that says something. I didn’t taste much of the honey, but it probably got drowned out. This was my ’don’t fall asleep while taking a test’ blend, and it worked well enough I suppose. The test was still inexplicable and random as usual, but that’s not the tea’s fault.

p.s. Thanks to Meghann for the tea bags!

Grad student in sociocultural anthropology. I drink tea while reading for my courses, and it makes the books go down easier. I genuinely like most kinds of tea – although fruit tisanes kind of scare me.
