This was an interesting one, and I am so happy that I could try it out! I’m really sensitive to caffeine, so I can only have it before noon if I’m going to get any sleep that night. I just recieved my first gaiwan, and it’s been saddening me that I can’t use it in the afternoon.

I’d like to send a big thanks to Dr. Jim, for the opportunity to try this tea! I’ve tried Harney & Sons before, but the teas I’ve tried haven’t impressed me. This one may have changed my mind. It’s smooth and surprisingly light – a sweet straw note that’s just a tiny bit nutty. I think this will work nicely for my purposes!

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!
