Dry, this smells wonderful. Like loads of fresh blueberries sprinkled with sugar.
Steeped, the color of this tea is admittedly terrible looking; it’s a greenish black liquor. That said, it’s very similar to color of a freshly squeezed blueberry – not that pretty purpley-blue color that you get when you blend them into a smoothie with white yogurt, but that greenish-blue shade you’ll get if you’ve ever tried to blend blueberries with water. It’s not pretty. But I digress.
Back to the tea, the strong blueberry aroma is still present after steeping. While it tastes a bit more mild than it smells, you can still detect blueberry flavors. I think the name of this tea is perfect – it tastes more like blueberry preserves than it does fresh blueberries. It’s sweet and fruity and the black tea adds quite a bit of depth to it. The perfect cup for breakfast.
