Another tea from *VariaTEA*’s package (thank you!). This is one that I’ve wanted to try for a while. I love 52 Tea’s Blueberry Zabaglione, so I thought this one would be great too. It does have a nice fresh blueberry flavor that has just the right amount of sweetness so that it isn’t artificial tasting. The flavor is initially all blueberry with a little maltiness. Adding milk and sweetener brings out a tiny bit of the cream cheese, but I’m still not getting any bready pastry flavor. I like this one, but I think I prefer the creaminess of the Blueberry Zabaglione more. Still glad that I finally got a chance to try this one!

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves with large dried blueberries.
-Dry leaves smell strongly of sweet blueberries. Tea liquor aroma is of fresh blueberries and black tea.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium yellow brown color.
-Fresh berry flavor with a light malty finish. Soft blueberry aftertaste.
-Best with sweetener. Milk optional.
-Good tea. Fresh blueberry flavor. Milk and sugar needed to bring out a hint of light cream cheese.

I am sorry this was not as tasty as the Zabaglione but at least now you know for sure and won’t be wondering. Yay for trying new things!

Very true, VariaTEA! And I won’t mind finishing the rest of the sample, either. :)
