Tea #2 from the Traveling Tea Box C

As I mentioned in Tea #1, Jake and I made up two of the rooibos teas tonight and thought we were going to each pick our favorite. Since neither of us were into the Rooibos Chai, we ended up just splitting the cup I made of this one. I think from now on I am going to skip the 16oz infuser mugs and just steep in an 8oz teacup. I just made a lot of tea that we’re just not that excited about.

While it does have a little more presence than the Rooibos Chai, this one also pulls the same flavor disappearing act halfway through the sip. What does stick with me is a more than a little artificial, but not entirely unpleasant. I tend to enjoy Della Terra’s Lemon Chiffon, and I am getting slight hints of that here.

That said, this tea will be moving on to the box’s next destination as well. At least it gave me an excuse to use the Royal Albert cup and saucer my husband found at the second hand store!

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!
