This is one of those difficult flavored blacks from DavidsTea. It’s hard to get it right, it’s either too weak or it seems to immediately become bitter. I figure the water I used was around ~200 degrees, knowing from the steep time I should probably not use boiling. And still, it seems to have gotten bitter from 3 1/2 minutes at that.
Beyond that, it has a blueberry-açaí flavor to it. I really don’t get the açaí hype because blueberries are pretty high up there in antioxidants too, and you know, far cheaper given they don’t just grow in Brazil. Plus they’re far more likely to actually contain all those touted antioxidants because they don’t get processed to death, like in this tea alone where they are just a powder. Still the flavor is okay, but I’d take Blueberry Jam over this one.
