I was actually going to go to dt with a friend today (what? she wanted to buy a mug! I had nothing to do with it…), but she ended up cancelling (totally fine by me, obv), and so I came home and had this instead. Apart from the fact that I think I brewed it too long and thus getting a bit of sharpness or tartness that I didn’t like as much, it still yielded a comforting and refreshing cup of fresh blueberry essence. What was also neat was that I could taste the base tea and I’m always so pleasantly surprised when I can a) taste the base in flavoured blends; and b) when it works so harmoniously with the flavours. I didn’t have it with breakfast this morning, but could actually see myself having it with breakfast sometimes. Mmm, now I want blueberry waffles. But tonight, Mr. Keychange and I are going to bake iced sugar cookies (recipe courtesy of our very own josie jade!

I adore this tea – I find the blueberry very unique. Almost like drinking a jam.

Sorry to hear about your friend cancelling on you! At least you got to go home and have some delicious blueberry nectar instead. :)

That’s right—a silver lining for sure! and I’ll rope her into accompanying me soon enough, so it really wasn’t a big deal. Probably kept me from buying even more tea LOL. And I agree that this tea is unique.

I had this once as a tea-pop (I think they called it that..) over the summer and it was delicious.

This is one of absolute favorite teas! And for the reason you mentioned, I love that I can taste the base tea AND the blueberry and that they work so well together.

Bio

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
