This is actually my third tea of the day. I also drank the second half of my S’mores sample from Ost and then a second steeping of Golden Orchid (I had the first steeping last night, I shared it with my boyfriend, who isn’t a tea drinker but he was excited at the notion of chocolate tea). So I brewed this up for four minutes. I usually do 3, but I knew I would add milk so I figured a bit stronger would be good. I then added some sweetened condensed milk (oh boychik…). It was still too hot to drink so I went downstairs to check the mail, hopeful that I would have some new samples to try. Well, no samples, but I did get my July issue of Bon Appetit! I love food magazines!

Needless to say, this tea is delicious with the condensed milk. It’s amazingly creamy and delicious but I can still taste a lot of blueberry. It’s like blueberries swimming in sweetened cream! Yum! If anyone reading this has a suggestion for a really good blueberry tea, I would love to hear it! I love blueberry.

Blueberry is not a favorite flavor of mine, but even I really enjoyed Blueberry Fields by Tea Source.

Marzipan

I bought some Blueberry Jam from David’s but haven’t tried it yet. I’ll dig it out and try it.

Bio

Hello, my name is Cameron. I’m 24 years old and currently living in Saratoga Springs, New York with my lovely boyfriend (a software architect). I am currently not employed, which leaves plenty of time for cooking and tea-drinking! I am a staunch lover of pugs and other squishy-face dogs, although sadly I do not currently have one. :(

I originally got into tea a couple of years ago. My sister introduced me to Teavana (there was a store in the nearby mall) and I was hooked. I have just started to drink tea again and I am very grateful to have found this community where there are so many with experience and wisdom to share!

I am a shameless Western steeper!

I love swaps! If you see something in my cupboard that you’d like to try, shoot me a private message and we’ll work something out!
