This was a wonderful way to kick off our Thanksgiving break! After we dialed in the perfect match of tea and time for us (1.5tsp/8oz for 3min) I was amazed at the balance and creaminess.

The taste of this tea actually hit me in stages: first came the slight smokiness of the cloves and black base, then the cinnamon and an almost pumpkin-pie creaminess. Finally, all the notes combined to create a real gingerbread cookie flavor in the aftertaste.

This is one I wouldn’t mind keeping in the cupboard full time!

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!
