Time for another pot of tea me thinks and I have happily acquired a fair stock of Davids Teas thanks to you wonderful Steepsterites. Perhaps it’s time I use a few of the smaller samples up, after all there is no time like the present. So they say anyway.

This blend has a lot of lovely blueberries, small but whole and very sweet smelling. So much so that it really does have a blueberry jam essence about it. :) Yummy.

As soon as I poured the water onto the mixture a strong aroma of blueberry came drifting up, it smells incredible! Exactly like blueberry jam. What does jam smell like? Well I don’t really know… thickly fruity and sweet?

Once steeped the tea is brown in colour and still has the same delicious blueberry jam aroma. Based on the smell alone I imagined the tea would be a red/purple colour but oh well.

Flavour is thick, fruity, sweet and oh so good! It’s blueberry, it looks like blueberries, it smells like blueberries and it tastes like blueberries. What more could you want from a blueberry tea?

The black tea is at the perfect balance for this blend, it’s not strong but you can taste a subtle earthy somewhat wooden taste but only for a second or two. The stevia balances that out I imagine and leaves you wish the sweet goodness of blueberries.

Simply delicious!!!

I would definitely recommend it. I think it’s the strongest and nicest blueberry tea I have tried yet. :)

Ozli

2nded! Best blueberry. :D

Sil

i didn’t like this one, but maybe it was my experience at davids. ie how they brewed it.

KittyLovesTea

Usually I brew my teas strong (2-3tsp per pot which holds 2.5 cups). For this one I only had a small sample of 1.5-2tsp max so I really wasn’t expecting much flavour but it was beautiful. Perhaps if I used double the amount like I usually would it would cause the black tea to be too strong? Like you said it could be the way they made it.

Lindsey

I wholly agree with Ozli & Kitty. Out of the 3 blueberry teas I’ve tried… this one is by far the best! It has the strongest blueberry flavor, whereas others seem to just have hints of it :)

Kittenna

This one is hit or miss… I think it’s the stevia that causes problems. I had one amazing batch of it, and then my second batch makes me gag. :(

Sil

i really like black-n-blue from uh…seredipitea. Used it to make blueberry infused vodka and it was amazing.

TeaBrat

ewww, I’m not a fan of stevia

Tea Sipper

Nxtdoor

Lariel of Lórien

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
