This is an interesting tea. I would have never thought to pair blueberry with a gunpowder tea. I didn’t even realize the green tea was gunpowder until I got it!
I made this iced to go with my leftover pad kee mao and it helped ease the burn. This is very, very blueberry smelling. The cup brews up really dark for a green even with a steep right under 2 minutes.
I was expecting this not to be very good but it’s really refreshing. The petals in the tea give it a floral note, though I’m sure the blueberry helps make it taste this way. The green tea has a pretty strong flavor in here too being such a dark gunpowder. It almost looks like an oolong.
Not a bad tea at all. I’ll have to try it hot too.
by the way if you are interested in my lip balm project I set up an indiegogo fund to really get things rolling, so you can help fund me, get some stuff before everyone else, and be forever one of my favorite people: http://www.indiegogo.com/blackbearlab I’ll get the money even if it doesn’t reach $500 (honestly I only wanted to set it to $350 but it makes you pick $500 at minimum) so you will definitely get something. And now you can see what flavors I have up my sleeves. I’m so excited!
