My husband is more of a laid back guy – most teas he can take or leave. He’s nearly as happy with the nameless pu-erh we got at the Asian market (and I found what looked like tooth floss in it!) as the mini cakes I got him from Arbor. But he loves this tea. He says it reminds him of the bottled iced-teas, but with more natural flavors. And for the first time, he asked me to add something to a tea order!

Myself, I’m not quite as enthusiastic about it. The tea leaves did open significantly – I had to switch it to a different teapot because the filter was too small! – but while I may look as much as I want at the pretty green leaves I don’t taste anything but the slightest hint of them. It’s all about the citrus. Despite that, I am impressed by how consistent the re-steeps are. This has lasted me most the afternoon, and the taste has barely changed at all.

Update: Four steepings now, in my 24oz teapot, and it’s still holding strong. I think this thing might actually outlast us!

This really does resteep well! My record for is 5 steeps, but I usually get bored after 3.

We fought that battle too, and lost! After a complete day of it – and a combined 96oz – we just couldn’t keep going. The Energizer Bunny of tea kicked our butts!

Feel free to browse my cupboard if you’re interested in swapping, but all the mate and pu-erh in our household is my husband’s.

For swapping purposes, please note the apple allergy. Thank you!

I tried to limit my cupboard to teas that were 1oz or larger, but that was a gorgeous failure in terms of swap communication. It’s all going back up.


Okay, I just feel wrong trying to grade things without a rubric – it’s too inconsistent! So, here is the grading breakdown:

0-50: Dump it!
50-60: I might finish the cup
60-70: Possibly finish the pot
70-80: I may keep this on hand
80-90: Cupboard space guaranteed
90-100: Poetry may be involved!
