I have been heavily broke so it’s been months since a DT run…and it’s killing me! Thankfully I have such a huge amount that I’m never broke in a having tea sort of way. My birthday is soon so hopefully my boyfriend will be tea generous:-)
ON TO THE TEA.
In the pouch this tea smells earthy but berry good.Strawberry notes make my mouth water. The blackberry is lovely dark and more of a sullen sweetness.Smells like what I imagine a HEALTHY fruit roll-up would smell like.
First taste: Berries and sweet with a sourness that is like the sourness of new fruit. Pleasant and I can see beautiful possibilities involving ice cubes and porches with huge umbrellas breaking up the sunshine while my legs dangle over the edge getting sun kissed .
Reminds me of ; Summer,being a child,getting sun-kissed and huge umbrellas with striped patterns on a lovely deck overlooking the great BC expanse.
Perfect for: A real damn good icing.Those days when you want something sweet but not too sweet.If you want a sweetie with a tarty side!
Final verdict : A nice surprise. It is not amazing or a huge discovery but it feels like the staple berry tea you will be giving your guests in the summer iced and in the cold times a nice reliable tea that is the quintessential berry tea everyone should have in their cupboards. So versatile and simple it is the reliable shoulder in the cupboard when you need nothing fancy but nothing boring either.
