I bought an ounce of this when it was on sale. After trying it, well, I understand why it was discontinued. I ordered the Lime Chiffon at the same time, and restocked my Lemon Chiffon as well. I guess I was expecting this to have the same sort of presence but with the added bonus of caffeine.

While I do get the lime and cream flavors, there is something that’s subtly off with this tea, as if the slice of pie fell on the ground and then they decided to serve it anyway. I completely understand why some Steepsterites compared this to lime Jello and lime Kool-Aid, because it does have that same not-so-fresh, artificial flavor.

I’m still waiting to hear back from the next person for the Traveling Tea Box C, so unless my husband likes it (and he does have an unnatural desire for lime in its myriad forms) it may get tucked inside.

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!
