Thanks so much for this one, QueenofTarts! I’m very pleased that I was able to buy this one, as I’m not sure why not many people seem to be a fan of Necessiteas. I’ve tried five of them so far and they are GOOD. I wish I could try all of their teas! I guess it is difficult to invest in their teas though, since they only sell them in 3 ounce amounts. I would love if they had samples! Can you tell I liked this tea? Both of the steeps were the same:
There are actual blueberries in this one! This just SMELLS like blueberry cheesecake and the taste is very present and accurate as well. Impressed already. The flavor is more like cream and butter (maybe from the buttery green itself?) with a little bit of tanginess very sweet and definitely blueberries! I’d say the blueberry and cream/butter/tang are equally represented. This is one of my favorite flavored green teas, definitely. It’s almost like if you mixed one of 52Teas blends and their BooBerry Cotton candy. I really wish Necessiteas would sell samples!! You’d think their lovely sounding blends are gimmicks or something, seeing as how you have to buy three ounces, but the five blends I’ve tried so far have been some of my favorites. If I had the money, I wouldn’t mind investing in entire three ounces of their teas without trying them first. I don’t think I’d be disappointed in any of them.

They used to sell samples. Hmm. That’s strange. I wonder why they stopped?

Tea Sipper

Maybe they still do?!? I don’t know!

I took a look at their site and didn’t see any. Also typed the word “sample” into the search and came up with nada.

Tea Sipper

Well, IMO they don’t have to hide terrible tea blends!

I don’t even think I’ve looked at their site before! Blueberry cheesecake teas always sound good to me so I may have to check this out. :D

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
