Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

Today seems to be turning out to be a “berry” tea kind of day, although I didn’t intentionally plan for it to be. I have at least one more berry tea on deck waiting for me today, so yeah… it just happened like that.

This is really good. I’ve tried purple Oolong and purple Pu-erh… and this particular purple tea seems to almost be “white” like to me. Maybe a little “green” tea-ish. Somewhere in between. It has a lightness to it … a delicateness that reminds me of a white tea, while there is a vegetative tone that is more like a green tea.

It’s very VERY good. I like the way the blueberries really stand out here, Sweet with hints of sour. The herbaceous tones of the tea lend a very “fresh” flavor to this, like freshly picked blueberries … and an earthy tone to it that give it a sort of “rustic” tone … evoking thoughts of picking wild blueberries. It’s deliciously different … unlike a blueberry green tea or a blueberry white tea … but still has similarities to both of these. Unique enough to NOT be these teas, while still similar enough to be vaguely reminiscent of them.

Quite good. I’m really glad I had the opportunity to try this tea.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
