Oh, I love this tea. Love, love, love. As much as I love complex and fascinating teas with 25 or so different ingredients, there is so much to be said for simplicity. Blue Sky is a delicious tea that needs only three ingredients to be wonderful.

And oh, how they combine! The sencha is a good grassy flavor mellowed out with a light sweetness from the mallow and roses. It’s floral without being perfumey. It tastes bright and delicate and it brews to a lovely pale yellow. It always makes me think of spring! And in the middle of a Chicago winter, I need spring.

If you can’t tell, this is one of my favorite teas. I drink it whenever I need something to make me feel happy or calm. Definitely recommended to anyone who likes flavored sencha and herbal teas.

I’m a tea omnivore if there ever was one. I’ll wax poetic about the finest sencha loose leaf but have no problem slurping up a few bags of Celestial Seasonings in between them. Everyone deserves quality from time to time, but every well-traveled road has a bit of dust (and fannings) along the way. :)
