drank Blueberry Hill by Yumchaa
343 tasting notes

this is a sample tea I just received from cteresa – thanks so much for this.

I love keemun teas, I love their mellowness. I never had a tea before with blueberry I think and was very excited about trying one.
Blueberry Hill is a good tea to begin with a blueberry tea.
I really had a high dose of blueberry and this is what I was looking for. In addition, I received as well a very floral note but in a second role.
I think this tea would fit perfectly with an English blueberry muffin on a greedy afternoon.
Now there is something missing for me especially for a keemun : no real mellowness, creaminess yes but no mellowness.

A beautiful tea.

I think i picked this because of the peonies, it is the one tea I had with peonies on it – but it is not too noticeable! And then I remembered than their Enchanted Forest tea is sort of a green take from this, also red fruits and peonies, so sent both (i think! I did send Enchanted forest right?). I am very fond of Yumchaa blends.

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
