Recent Tasting Notes
A follow-up re-steeping. I left the leaves in the pot for at least ten minutes, steeping, and continued to leave them in as I drank the tea. The color is maintained, though the blueberry aroma has much diminished. The blueberry flavor has gone away, for the most part, but a hint of it is still there. Re-steeping this tea was worth it.
A recent acquisition from the Secret Garden Organic Herb Shop, I only purchased a little bit of this blueberry black tea after a poor experience with another blueberry-flavored black tea, specifically a blueberries and cream, in which only the cream flavor was actually noticeable. This tea was the complete opposite.
A two cup teapot, two teaspoons of leaf, and just boiled water combine in five minutes to make a delicious, strong, yet not bitter or overwhelming pot of tea. The blueberry flavor was not as intense or juicy as one might get from a blueberry green tea (probably because the black tea balanced it a bit more). The blue flowers were a visually appealing addition to an otherwise plain and dark tea. This drink was definitely worth sampling. On my personal enjoyment scale, I rate this tea an 87/100.
