I felt like having something fresh and fruity and this was perfect.
The unbrewed leaves are predominantly scented of gorgeous fresh blueberries. When brewed, the freshness turns stewed and baked—like warm blueberry muffins. The green tea is subtle and adds a slight grassiness. I’m envisioning a picnic of blueberry muffins under a tree on a grassy knoll in the springtime. There is a floral note—but it’s not strong and somehow enhances the fruitiness.
Oh I see a couple round blueberries bobbing about in the water! I forgot there was actual real fruit in here. It’s almost like I dropped fresh berries in myself—they’ve definitely plumped up from their original dessicated state.
I’ve kept the leaves steeping in my travel mug—so the overall taste is strong and astringent. But I still like it!
Edited to add: On the second steeping (or, in this case, topping off my mug with more hot water), the jasmine really comes out to play! The aroma is of lovely, creamy jasmine petals floating in a blueberry compote.
