This has a nice blueberry flavour, but without the addition of milk I find the Assam base makes “the pastry” taste a bit dry and overdone. After merely tolerating this tea for the last month I decided to add some soy milk today. When I did that the blueberries gained a tangy creamy friend, which makes for a very convincing cream cheese sauce. Huge improvement! Now I can enjoy finishing off the rest of this.

I should also add that the aroma is amazing, and exactly like a Blueberry Danish. I want candles, soap, and other similar products, that smell like this tea.

Sorry you don’t like this one as much as I do. :)

I think I would have a hard time trying to match your love for this. ;) I do like it though and it’s one of the blends from 52teas that I’d think about reordering. I’ve a feeling it I’ll grow on me too, now that I know how I like it prepared.

Have you tried a second steeping yet? It’s my favourite steep. The pastry and creaminess come out a little more and aren’t fighting with the base.

And not sure if you’re into handmade soap, but about soap smelling like this, Tvål used to make a blueberry one that smelled so much like this, but that was several years ago. Wonder if they would ever bring it back:

I haven’t attempted a second steep yet. I’ll try that now.

You shouldn’t have showed me that website because I want to buy everything on it. I’m usually skeptical with handmade soaps, as I find that they don’t usually smell very similar to what they look like, but the stuff on there looks so good!

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I guess I can’t say I’m completely new, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

My tea preferences have changed a lot since joining here. I swore I’d never love black teas, and now they make up some of my favourites, both flavoured and unflavoured. I prefer my green and oolong teas buttery and roasted.

A good Silver Needle is my desert island tea.
