This tea smells absolutely devine. It is definitely a blueberry tea.
I got this one last night for Christmas with my dad. He absolutely spoiled me!! Two bags of tea, three mini tins, and one ‘cake’ of tea. The cake of tea is really blowing my mind right now too. I can’t wait to try it.

Anyway, I could smell this one through the wrapping paper and actually thought it was black licorice, but obviously I was wrong (Thankfully too. I don’t like black licorice).
It says to steep for 3-5mins. I did three. Most of the time, the shorter steeps are better for teas I’m finding. Anyways… So I added some milk and sugar, but not too much.. probably half a sugar and the same for milk. It smells like blueberry city over here! Delish!

It’s still quite hot, but the taste I’m getting is just amazing!!! For someont that thought she didn’t like blueberries all that much, I’m being proven VERY wrong!! Blueberries are awesome! This tastes like fresh blueberries. It’s got a nice mild black tea base from what I’m getting so far, and a very juicy blueberry flavour.

According to what is written on the packaging this tea is a “unique and very popular premium black tea blend tasting of fresh hand-picked Nova Scotia wild blueberries. It’s delicious served hot or over ice.”
I can see that for sure. I bet iced would be very nice too. I don’t ususally do black teas iced, but I’d be more than willing to try one of these iced. Or as a latte… or an Iced latte!

So happy dad got me one of these. I’ve been dying to try it since I first smelt it, and I have a feeling I’m going to finish this one quickly.

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
