Dry Smell: Blueberry Pie Filling. Then the stevia. The stevia hits the back of your throat and has a weird cooling effect. I’m not sure if I like that or not. I’m not very familiar with stevia, so we will see. I’m not smelling tea yet.

Steeped Smell: Earthy tea smell immediately followed by the blueberry pie filling smell. I can’t just say it smells like blueberries because the smell is somehow sweeter, like jam or preserves, not quite fresh. Which is appropriate since this is named blueberry JAM.

Taste: I’m a major sweet tooth, so even after trying a sip without sweetener, I added my usual teaspoon of honey. There is a definite astringency to this tea. I’ve had this problem with a couple of DAVIDsTEA products, and haven’t yet figured out how to make it disappear. Only when I am swallowing and after do I get any hint of blueberry and sweetness. I will try this iced, but for now, I’m not really a fan of that astringent taste. Anyone have recommendations on how to make a smoother cup or should I expect this from all of their black teas? I haven’t tried their others yet…
