I ordered this tea as part of a big DavidsTea order. Man, I miss having a DT nearby. They need to have one in southern California! I was going to buy either this or “Superberry”, but I love blueberries and this won in the final order.

DRY LEAVES: Very fruity and sweet smelling. Emphasis on the sweet. Lots of little berries in there. I ate one, it was tasty!

STEEPED: Steeps into a dark dark reddy black brew. Smells like black tea as far as I can tell when it’s hot. As it’s cooled to warm it smells more berryfruity.

TASTE: I messed up the steep time, since I was so excited I forgot to set the timer! DOH! However, the tea came out well.
Blend of black tea at first sip, then a dance of blueberries. A slight hit of dry/bitter at the end, but that could of been me oversteeping. The sweetness of the stevia is barely noticable and there is no funky stevia aftertaste.
As the tea cools and the more I drink it, it becomes more and more blueberry flavor, slightly sweeter and less blacktea. A very robust tea!

RECOMMENDED FOR: This one has a broad range. Fruit tea lovers for sure (even if you aren’t into black tea), ice tea freaks. Strong tea peeps. People who aren’t into tea but love blueberries (and who doesn’t love berries?). I’m going to even try this tea on my tea-hating husband.

COMMENTS: Hotdamn DavidsTea, all your teas with blueberries that I’ve tried so far ROCK! I still need to get my hands on Superberry, then I’ve tried them all to date. “White Tiger” is well loved by me, the blueberry flavour and white tea is so crisp and delicate – it’s like a sister to “Blueberry Jam”.
I was worried this was going to be a sickening-tongue-weird sweet with the stevia and name of “Blueberry Jam” but it’s not. It’s a well balanced matchup of black tea and berries, making it very delicious. If one was to sweeten it, it would be closer to sweet jam. I think this would make an amazing iced tea!

Grossly enough, I burped while drinking this tea and the burp aftertaste was yummy blueberry, as if I had been eating a handful of blueberries.

In the end, it’s a great tea. I got 50g, so this will last me awhile. I wish I could buy smaller doses, like in store, online. It’s my first cup, so I’m not addicted yet. If I get addicted, I’m getting 100g and adding it to my permanent collection.

Profile

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
