Jake’s been working very late hours, so I was delighted to be able to wake him up early so we could have tea before going our separate ways today… and not seeing each other until tomorrow morning. Because he is such a Whovian, we decided to sample this blend. Here’s what I did:

Teaware: 16oz travel mug
Measured dry: 2tsp
Temperature: Boiling
Steeping Time: 4min
Additives 4tsp raw sugar

While this doesn’t really harken to the weeping angels for us, it does, as Jake said, remind him of something strange and jumbled that could have been mixed up in the Tardis. “Wibbledy wobbley timey wimey” sorts of stuff.

It does have a creaminess that lends itself very well to being sweetened, and the toffee stands out prominently. There are some other flavors mixed up on top of that, but at the moment we’re having a difficult time picking them out.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

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!
