Tea #1 from the Traveling Tea Box C

The jam-packed tea box arrived today, and while we wait for trick-or-treaters my husband and I decided to make up two teas, sample them, and decide who was going to enjoy which one. Because we want to get some sleep tonight (and I don’t want to bounce off walls like rabid super-ball) we went for the first two caffeine-free teas I came across.

The dry aroma smells somewhat muted for a chai, but since I’ve never had a chai rooibos I didn’t know what to expect. The cardamon and cinnamon peek out more in the aroma, but the flavor does an odd vanishing act. At first the sip gives you a promising bite of flavor, but then, just as if you were watching invisible ink fade away, the flavor disappears mid-sip. It really is the strangest thing.

I think the rest of this tea will be traveling on to the tea box’s next destination, but it was fun to try!

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!
