This tea is so visually pleasing – I love the way the berries look amongst the tea leaves.
This brewed up lighter than I was expecting but the package notes that a second steep of ~4 minutes is recommended.
This tastes buttery! It is like a berry cobbler or something. Wow good :)
I really like the way the berry flavors work with the green tea – I get a really nice round fullness of the berries that is supported by the buttery green. This is such a brilliant idea for a tea combo! Or rather, a really simple idea that came out absolutely perfectly.
This was a sample for the virtual tea tasting here this September… I think I might need to order more of this when I have a tea budget again.

Bio

I’m a writer and as such, am obviously an emotional rollercoaster. I used to drink tea a lot more, but kind of stopped and switched to coffee. Now, after too much stress, I’m completely unable to drink coffee anymore, so I figured tea would fulfill some of my “awake” needs as well as calm my emotions. I’m working my way through a huge selection of samples of pretty much everything, leaving notes so I remember what I like.
I love being adventurous and trying new things, even (especially?) things that sound strange or off-putting. Aside from tea I also enjoy tasting wines. The last really interesting one I tried was a dandelion wine! (And yes, it actually was delicious. Extremely bizarre and herby, but delicious).

I don’t have a set of numerical ratings set down yet, mainly because I’m very intuitive (read: disorganized and opinionated) about how I rate things. Basically, If something is in the 70-85 range, it’s pretty good, totally drinkable. Below that, in the 50-69 range, it was probably incredibly boring. I really hate boring tea. Below 50, I wouldn’t drink it again and might not have finished it (I actually really hate leaving ratings below 50, it makes me feel bad. I’m probably too nice). If it’s above 85 then I really liked it. Super high ratings are reserved for teas that totally blew me away.
