While over at a friends house watching The Office & Community (both hilarious shows btw) I was introduced to this tea. Being the only one in her “stash” that seemed better than Tazo or Lipton I decided to give it a try.

The smell of this tea is absolutely delightful. Obviously blackberry surges through every fiber of this teas being, however the sage does add a nice balance to the aroma that would otherwise be pretty fruity.

Now since this tea is technically a “dust” tea it’s a little frustrating trying to find the full range of flavor you’d desire from a tea with this name. Anywho.

Steeped at boiling for 3 minutes this tea, while fantastic on the side of smell, really needed some help on bringing out an enjoyable flavor. Due to the mild steep I wasn’t expecting the taste to come off as bitter as it was, however once reconciled by the appropriate amount of cream & honey this tea wasn’t that bad. Any ideas on the steeping time?

Bio

Currently a Bible Student at Eternity Bible College. I love literature and film, which should always be complimented by great tea. From C.S. Lewis to Ayn Rand & Chuck Palahniuk to Jonathan Edwards I’m always reading. I like philosophy, but love theology. Hoping to “finally” finish college within the next couple of years I love my church family and can’t live without them. God has truly blessed my life with a tremendous amount of grace. So thankful to Him.
