I got this in a swap from Ellen.
I love blackberries. This is the best time of year, because they tend to be “in season” in the grocery store.
The dry tea bags definitely smells like blackberries. More on the tart side. I don’t smell any sage.
The brewed tea smell reminds me of sweet tarts. Definitely get that not quite ripe blackberry taste.
The liquor has that kind of sweet tarts taste. There is sage in the background. There is a sweetness to the tea, but more of a tart sweetness than a sugar sweetness. Mostly, you can taste the black tea base. It is a bit artificial tasting.
This tea was on my shopping list for a long time, so I am happy I had the chance to get it in a swap. Thanks again Ellen.
