I’ve been trying to sip down the teas that I am not in love with, or have little of, in the hopes of getting down to a core collection of fifty teas or so. This has meant a lull in drinking teas I adore, as well as being inspired to log any that I drink. I’ve managed to finish about 30 teas or so, and am rewarding myself with a week of sipping only my favourites, which this is one. I adore all things blueberry, and this tea is packed full of them and their flavour. I love it black, but when you add a dash of sweetener, you actually do get the jam flavour of its name. I still love this tea like mad and am glad its in the permanent collection.

In other news, I’m thinking of starting up a travelling tea box. Would anyone in these parts be interested in playing along?

What is a traveling tea box?

Someone (this time me) would create a box of 10-12 teas and mail it out to person number one. They would take out the teas that are interesting to them, replace them with other teas, and send the box to the next person on the list. Person two would repeat, until the list is complete and the box returns to me, hopefully with a lot of new teas!

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
