This tea smells heavenly! It’s like I’m holding a fresh pint of blueberries. I drank this without milk. The black tea base really comes through and isn’t over powered by the blueberries. Unfortunately, I’m not getting much of a blueberry taste though. I can smell the berries, but not taste them. I only steeped for about five minutes. I’ll try a longer infusion next time and make it into a latte to give it another chance.

Final thoughts: Blueberry Jam smells wonderful, and although the taste was pleasant, I found it a bit lacking. At this point I’m not sure if I would re stock this tea, it seems more like something I’ll enjoy on occassion but not frequently.

Update!: I just tried this as a chocolate milk latte and it was to die for! As soon as I added milk the blueberries really popped. I guess all I needed to fall in love with this tea was a good amount of milk:)

this is one of my favourite davidstea blacks. i found it really needed a solid steep time. if i can, i even just let it steep as i drink. i haven’t found that “bitter” point yet! i’m sure it exists, though.
but, yeah, a dash of milk really brings out the blueberry. as a skim milk latte, it’s like blueberry pancakes! (if it’s allowed to steep long enough)

I’m a 26 year old gal and I’m tea obsessed! :) I love discovering new teas and making my own blends.

I joined Steepster because I love reading the reviews here and I’d like to meet fellow tea drinkers.

I work a busy job and tea really keeps me going through the day!

Aside from tea, I do a lot of reading and writing.
