Honestly, I haven’t had a good experience with a blueberry green tea, but I’m not giving up!
This version came my way in the Traveling Tea Box (A). I’m not as experienced with greens, but this was even more different than my past encounters. The leaves aren’t as green as I’m used to seeing and they’re rolled into oddly shaped balls. I am always a sucker for Cornflower petals in tea – it always looks so pretty!
Upon opening the baggie I can smell the blueberry. I brewed this in the fridge for about 18 hours.
I noticed some bitterness after straining the leaves; not something I was expecting. I probably shouldn’t have, but I added a little simple syrup to mute that. There’s a slight smokiness that I’m detecting now that I’ve killed the bitterness. The blueberry is nice in this.
I’m leaving this in the box for others to try. The quest for the right blueberry green tea continues…
