This one was difficult for me to write about, because I have such great memories associated with this brand that I didn’t want to dislike this tea. But I do. A lot.

I made several cups of this over the last two days – kept myself up half the night because I was so over-caffeinated! – but none of them hit the mark. It’s a solid Earl Grey, but the perfumey element of the cornflowers is just too much for me.

I have two more of their Earl Greys to try, and I’m hoping that they will be a lot more enjoyable. Right now I’m just happy I was able to use rewards points for this, and that I didn’t have to actually pay for it!

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!
