Oh… a tasty way to end a busy afternoon! A sample of this came with my Verdant order today (more Bergamot Rose Laoshan Black!) and it sounded intriguing. I just want to slide on into it, but I think a little grading will need to get done first.

Of course, I am a little goofy-happy over the new Breville that arrived today. There was no way I was waiting until the 17th to open it, so I decided it needed something wonderful – that required a special temperature – to try it out.

I’ve lived in too many places that don’t have regular seasons, but right now this tastes like fall in the Pacific Northwest. Mmmm…

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!
