Thank you, Shelley_Lorraine for including this with the other tea you sent! I brought it to school, and I think I might have done it a huge disservice. I was only able to microwave the water to tepid and we were at the tail end of our sugar supply. I’m deliberately not rating this one, because it turned out so strangely and I’m not sure if it’s my fault or a characteristic of the tea itself. It’s very faint, with a slight hint of straw. For the most part I’m just tasting the microwaved water. Next school year an electric kettle just has to be on my school supply list!

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!
