85

I’m not sure why I’ve waited so long to taste this one because it’s pretty good. The smell of the leaves is grape jelly. Once brewed, the smell is of black tea with a little berry fruitiness. The taste is yummy… a nice mellow black tea followed by the grape jelly flavor and then… wait for it… ah, there… the blackberry. You’ll definitely want a little sweetener in here, but of course you’d sweeten your blackberries too, right?

I think this will make a great iced tea and I’ve got a glass of it cold brewing in the fridge (with bottled water this time – in case you didn’t see it the other day, our water is contaminated due to local flooding and lots of cows).

The tea…NOT the flooding…

Our house is luckily at least 3 blocks from the river that’s flooding (too much snow melt, too fast) so we are dry. Just the city water is bad. They think a pipe got damaged somewhere. Should be better any day now… water smells like bleach at the moment.

Grape jelly tea sounds inordinately intriguing!
