One of the teas I made earlier decided to fuse with the mesh filter of my teapot, so while I scrub away at that with a toothbrush I wanted something to savor. This definitely fit the bill.

While I would usually give something this chunky room to expand (stupid tiny particles!) I had to use my much smaller pinch mesh ball. Fortunately, the compression doesn’t seem to have affected it, as the flavor is rich and rather succulent.

It might have been the grapefruit I had earlier, but I am loving the fresh taste of this tea! Sweet with a twist of gentle tartness, I can definitely pick out the citrus and the hibiscus, with the lightest note of the cranberry.

As I continue stabbing away at the mesh of my filter, this is a nice calm-me-down… because otherwise I might start trying to zap these things with a lighter! But, mmm… sweet. See? It’s working.

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!
