I did a thing. I decided to get a Sipsby subscription as a way to keep trying new teas without getting overwhelmed with a huge amount of tea. My monthly box should be a good mix of black, green, oolong, and herbal (all things I enjoy). Of course, I then proceeded to pick up their pumpkin tea box, one of the seasonal boxes, so now I have lots of new teas to try. My hope is that I can keep my “core” teas to around 10, but still try something new each month.

This tea… it’s bagged and very powdery. I brought it to work with me this morning, and I’m not mad about it. The tea is light with a faint spice smell. Unsweetened this had a note of nutmeg and clove. The base tea was… nothing. Sweetened there were notes of nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, and apple. It reminded me of spiced cider but muted. Easy to drink, but nothing I feel deserves my time and attention which makes it a perfect work tea.

Didn’t love this one, but I didn’t hate it either. I’ll bring the other three tea bags to work with me and use them up.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Nutmeg, Red Apple

Tea obsessed since 2010.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
