612 Tasting Notes
Like the Blueberry Fruit tea by Teavivre this one is also much better cold. I steeped for approx. 4min and found it was just right. This tea turned my water in to a medium pink colour. I find hot or steeped too long makes it undrinkable for me. So if you buy this make sure to have enough to experiment with otherwise you might miss how good this tea is.
I found this tea is definitely better iced and with a shorter steep time than the package recommends. It’s a very pleasant blueberry tea and really yummy. I found that when I steeped it hot or for too long it took on a medicinal quality.. or at least I think so. It might just be the black currant coming out more though and medicine is what my brain is thinking. So the bottom line is DRINK IT COLD.
Today I felt like some sweet tea and it has nothing to do with the fact that I was sick yesterday and it snowed. Or the fact that today it is -20C. Nope nothing to do with all that at all. I’m just at work and staring at mountains of snow wishing for spring and +1C
Okay I was going to write this note earlier but life got in the way. So my first cup of this was spectacularly awesome. It was a nice creamy mint that was perfect. Now for some unknown reason after that I found it got sometimes too sweet near the end. Similar to teas with Chamomile in them. So I would definitely recommend this to everyone as it is extremely yummy.
Not nearly as good as Laoshan Black or the chai version but it’s still a good cup. I just put in an order to Teavivre since I haven’t ordered from them in ages. I think I’ll rotate my orders from the companies so no one feels left out and I don’t run out of yummy tea! So next time I order it will be Butiki’s Teas turn :D
