So, I’m not much a blueberry person either. So me picking this one up is quite surprising. The one sales associate highly suggested it… plus I just remembered trying this tea in an iced chai once and it was good.

This one has a very strong blueberry smell. It’s quite surprising actually. I wasn’t expecting that at all. But it is. It filled the kitchen.

I added milk and a tiny bit of sugar ‘cause I was sort of looking to get a blueberry pie with icecream taste. I didn’t quite get that. It lives up to its name: blueberry jam. If I had used like a 2% milk I could see it being more of the ice creamy taste, but I don’t have that here.

I steeped for about 4.5mins and I’m getting the tiniest bit of bitterness from it. I think this one would be better at 4mins or slightly shorter even. The flavour is very blueberry flavoured. It’s actually really good. Maybe I like blueberries more than I thought? I’m not too sure if I’d get this one again, but I’m really glad that I got to try it.

One of my first thoughts upon trying this one too would be to add it to the strawberry shortcake tea, which is a tea that I’m really loving right now.

Bio

I’m a 30yr old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon. Currently I’m actively looking for markets and avenues to get published.

I’m also looking to finish a novel that I’ve been writing for the last several years.

I work as a paginator (I do page layout for our local weekly newspaper) and absolutely love it! I’m also an amateur photographer and “mom” to two adorable “fur babies” (I have two awesome cats). I’m married to an absolute amazing man who “puts up” with my tea obsession.

It wasn’t until a few years after high school that I finally became interested in tea. I started with Orange Pekoe double double (milk not cream) and peppermint. Since that time, I’ve really opened up to other kinds of tea and I’ve well… I’ve kind of just went nuts since then.

I don’t drink much bagged tea anymore. It’s mostly loose leaf in my cupboard. The only except are a couple that were given to me and they sound too good!

I would have to say my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too). White teas are rapidly becoming a favourite too. But, they must be flavoured white teas.

I don’t care for mate, green, oolongs, matcha, or puerh (although the puerh cake tea I have may convert me to a puerhs).

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
