Oh em gee, it is the very verge of summer in my basement!
The smell alone makes me want to get up and dance. I want to play in the puddles. I want to buy a popcicle from a truck playing horrible cartoonish music. I want to pick little wildflowers. I want to rake the winter out of my lawn, put down some chairs, take this tea outside and sit and enjoy the light breezes that generally accompany the end of spring.
What a great smell!
(It could be because I bought this tea around this time of year…?)
I don’t know that I necessarily get blueberry out of the smell, but I absolutely get the blackberry.
I’m not a massive fan of the weightlessness of this tea, but the flavour is decent.
Kind of dances along the tongue and then right down your throat. Doesn’t stick around to tell you its story. Sweet, but not terribly so. (I’m drinking this one au natural, because I can’t stand to milk or sweeten green teas.) And, because the tea is OLD (like maybe two years old?), it has a last-second kick to the back of my tongue that I don’t like at all.
But that’s not the fault of the tea by any stretch.
Tasty. Better than the bunk hot chocolate I though I’d wanted.
(Turns out I didn’t. But that didn’t stop me from drinking it or the 30-odd mini marshmallows I threw in it…)

ETA: I’ve changed my mind about the weightlessness. It adds a LOT of the freshness to this tea. Even though I’m drinking it hot, the weigtlessness combines with the slight fruit and bitter-less green tea to give it an almost cooling sensation. Very unique, and makes it feel even more like summer. I’ve added 5 points to my rating because of it.

I’m a work-at-home mum. Seeing as how I work in the basement at the computer and am too lazy to brew myself a cup of coffee each day, tea has become my drink-of-choice.
