Not going to lie, I totally bought this one one whim for the 12 Days swap back in December and hoped for the best. This was one of my best ‘cross my fingers and hope for the best’ purchases. The only thing that could please me more was if I had gotten more than 1.5 ounces for the price point. It comes in a cute resealable cardboard tin though, so I’ll forgive a bit of that.

The blueberry flavor is natural and ever so slightly tart. It might actually be the best blueberry flavor I’ve found in a white tea yet. The white tea comes through with it, and is a pretty decent tasting peony, despite the slightly smaller leaf size (and couple of twigs I’ve found). It’s a little vegetal, a little floral, and naturally sweet. It pairs to the blueberry with perfection.

Rah rah successful random tea purchase!

So sad this never made it to me :( Alas, I’ll hold out hope the mail fairies didn’t permanently lose it and some day it’ll show up in my mailbox like a nice, cheery surprise!

Oh no! That’s actually really sad :/

I would be more than happy to send out another package, though! I have more than enough left. Best case scenario they both show up, but at least this way we know for sure at least one hasn’t blitzed into another dimension.

I visited the site many times, and had my credit card info entered at one point, but could never pull the trigger to buy. I decided to wait until the summer time. I really really liked this one!

Their Mocha Mate has me seriously intrigued too, so I might have to make another order sometimes. For, um, science. Yeah.

This tea smelled exquisite while brewing. It had a sweet blueberry hint to it. When tasting, the blueberry flavor was not as strong, but it was still there. Haven’t had a lot of white tea blends. This one looked very delicate and pretty with the small white tea leaves (even thought they are green in color-LOL) and specs of purple/blue. Thanks to Moraiwe for day #4 of 12 Days Christmas 2013, I enjoyed the experience.

I love blueberry flavored teas, blueberry whites definitely take the cake, and this one takes the biggest cake ever, really.

It’s not too strong, and it tastes like actual blueberries rather than being really artificial. There were quite a few blueberries in there too.

Again, another sample where I used the whole thing and I would love to have some more! But I definitely, definitely do not need more tea.

Day 4 of the 12 Days of Christmas exchange, from moraiwe!

Quite the blueberry tea. The smell reminded me of a muffin or scone. Very pleasant/mild, so I agree that this would be a good tea to have in the evening or before bedtime.

I’m happy to taste a white tea blend where the flavor comes through. I’ve been wanting to try more white teas, but they’ve all been a little too much on the weak side, for me.

This was the tea for the 4th day of Christmas, and man what a treat it was. I have been searching for great flavored white teas because I like to drink them before bed. In a lot of white tea I have had the flavor doesn’t come through, that was not the case here. The tea was great hot and cold and the berry flavor was so refreshing. I have definitely added this to my shopping list.

Thank you very much moraiwe!
