This is… odd. I used 1/2 tsp in 8 oz water for 5 minutes like directed, and I have a barely tinted, blueberry scented… water?

Oh wait. As the tea cools, the base becomes very strongly pronounced. Not sure if this is residual steeping from the bits left in the bottom of my mug, or just what it tastes like. Earthy? Yeah. Strong? Oh my goodness yes. Blueberry? Definitely.

For me this tea is an interesting, tasty novelty, but not something I’d keep stocked.

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)
