Someone accidentally left a tin of this at a tea party at my house over ten years ago. In guilt I didn’t drink it and hid it on my shelf until this week, when I figured after ten years has gone by I should get over it. In fact, I thought, it might not even be good any more, but maybe I should re-use the tin.

Turns out, it’s EXCELLENT. Far smoother and more flavorful than the Republic of Tea “Metabolic Frolic”, it stands up to four steepings, at which point it is just starting to lose its mango sweetness. Many fruit teas disappoint me. This one doesn’t.

For the whole story of the tea party, see my blog (http://teawritings.com/?p=101), but I was pleased to find this tea is still available and for only $5 per tin! At the rate I’m going, I will use this one up and need to replace it soon.

That’s a nice story. Keeping it for that long, that sounds like something I would do. :)
