Blueberry Jam caught my eye on a trip to Davids one day. I took a smell of the tea and pretty much said “Oooooh” being loaded with Blueberries it really does smell like Blueberry Jam, I was sold!

Dry this black tea actually looks like freeze dried blueberries with a little bit of black tea leaves mixed in, certainly not a bad thing, and of course smells like blueberry jam. Brewed the beverage takes on some of the colour of the blueberries and of course still has a very distinct blueberry flavour.

The final brew is very dark with a slight purple hue from all the blueberries, that tell tale blueberry smell is still there and well what do you know it taste’s like blueberries!

This tea is exactly what it claims to be, its hard to really write much on it as it name really describes it perfectly. It goes really great with a buttered bagel for breakfast. Without sweetener it tastes great but if you used to eat the sweeter style of jams (Smuckers) add a tsp or two of sugar and you will feel at home.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
