It’s been a long, looong time since I’ve last posted on here. Let’s just say that life and school have been crazy, but I’m trying to get all my various responsibilities back in check. One of those responsibilities was reviewing this tea. The Persimmon Tree was kind enough to send me a tin in September, so I’m glad I was able to make this happen.

It’s a caffeine free, organic rooibos but the caramel notes I usually get from rooibos blends are far, far in the background here. This tastes like melted mint chocolate chip ice cream… the kind of flavor you get at the end of the bowl. The chocolate is somewhat understated, but it doesn’t let itself be forgotten, either.

You can see pictures here:

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!
