Seeing that I’ve had this since August but still haven’t talked about it yet, I better get down to that. I really enjoyed the Kamba Berry sample Stacy sent me alongside this, and this is no exception.
I haven’t had unflavoured purple tea, so I’m really curious as to how this would taste without the blueberry. The base is incredibly smooth. Almost no astringency, and delicate in flavour; at least, I’m guessing so since the blueberry is so prominent. I also detect a slight earthiness which may be coming from the base. As soon as the water hit the tea leaves, I was hit with a basket of warm blueberry jam.
It’s amazing that I only used one tea measuring spoon for my 16 oz. Nordic mug, as per the instructions, and this is so blueberry-ish. One of my favourite blueberry teas now.
It does, however, make me wish that 52teas’ Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish utilized a subtler base, such as this, because I’m sure you would otherwise be able to detect the subtle creamy and pastry notes a lot more easily.
That said, methinks this particular tea makes an excellent base for flavoured teas, especially fruity flavours. Two thumbs up, yo.
