Tea #3 from Traveling Tea Box C

I usually start off the day with tea in a travel mug, but since I don’t want to hog any teas I’m not totally into, I have this one in a pretty little teacup. It’s making me want to savor the experience instead of get up and go, so I do need to kick my tail into gear!

That said, this is an interesting blend. It was the first curious-looking black tea I came to this morning, so I decided to give it a try. I tried the low end of the steep times first, then added another minute when it tasted a little weak.

It has a little more staying power now, but both the main flavor profiles seem to be fighting each other instead of working together. Adding a dash of milk did bring a little harmony, but I think the rest of this (there’s about one serving left) will be moving on with the rest of the box when the time comes.

Boiling 5 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!
