This is another tea where the ingredients sound like they’d be good together, the dry leaf smells good (mostly of blueberry) but the taste falls flat. It is weak if you follow the suggested steeping parameters. I steeped 5 minutes. Tastes mostly of lemongrass and it has a pretty unfortunate colour. I bought with the intent to have it iced because the season is coming and I can’t be guzzling only goji pop. I bought 24 grams but will not refill. It is kind of a miss. Not awful but definitely not what I thought it would be. I added some lemon slices to the pitcher to see if I can can brighten it up a bit.

Awww. That’s too bad that it didn’t work for you. I agree it could use a certain something, but when I think of drinking blue whale candies, that somehow makes this tea better…

I’ve never had a blue whale candy. Don’t even know what it is. Sorry!

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
