So I really wanted white tea this morning, and White tiger is up there on my fav white teas. However, I wanted something more.

Brewing up white tiger as normal, I sneak in a little DavidsTea “Blueberry Jam”. The result was very yummy! I used: 1.5t White Tiger and 0.5t of Blueberry Jam.

First off, this blend steeps up to a weird smokey quartz colour. Very cool.

Taste? Very very blueberry! The white tea comes out adding lightness, with white tigers own blueberry taste – however the Blueberry jam adds even more blueberry flavor, sweetness and a bit of black tea depth.

I’m going to do this again (also stretches my stash of both teas, lol)

Bio

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 am also a crochet / knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

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.

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

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 512 Teas May 2015.
