I chose to try this tonight because it was one of my few caffeine-free holiday teas, but I wasn’t expecting to love it so much! This has some pretty amazing staying power, which left my mouth tingling after each sip. And the flavor? It really is like a high quality candy cane, with just enough kick to perk you up and calm you down at the same time.

I wonder if my husband would like some in his Christmas stocking?

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!
