I’ve had this tea twice now since it came out, and I’m really loving it! Finally picked up 50g of it yesterday and I’m so glad I did.

I had it as a latte the first time, and it was marvelous. Hot, it reminds me almost of a fruity earl grey. I got a floral/astringent bergamot-type aroma from it, which really pairs nicely with the blueberries. I really have no idea where I’m getting this association from since there’s no bergamot in the blend..maybe it’s the elderberries? Regardless I found that it went perfectly with the juicy blueberry goodness that’s in the forefront.

Aaaand then I tried it iced. It is AMAZING. It really does taste like straight up blueberry preserves with a smooth and sturdy black tea in the background. Unfortunately I ruined half of my tumbler full since I forgot to shake it up to mix in the agave until halfway through. I’m thinking iced it may be better straight up because once that agave hit my tongue it was horrible. Really artificially sweet and I just couldn’t bring myself to finish it.

So glad to have this in my cupboard for both hot and iced goodness :)

Bio

Queer femme looking for love in the form of tea. Currently on a (seemingly never-ending) quest to convince my girlfriend of the magic of loose leaf.

Let’s see..I’m a 23 year old seemingly perma-student, having finished at university and moved on to college. I love reading. I love tea. I love reading while drinking tea. It really doesn’t take much to keep me happy.

Black tea is my all time favourite, preferably hot with milk and sugar. I like flavoured blacks the best, and my taste is embarrassingly unrefined. If it has some outlandish candy or dessert or fruity sounding name, I’m all over it. Especially things like coconut, caramel, chocolate (the usual suspects), bubblegum, cotton candy, and the list goes on. If it’s supposed to taste like something it’s not, odds are I’m going to love it. I also love a good earl grey, floral teas, and anything with currants. Love me some currants!

When it comes to iced teas I love fruity herbal blends and matés, for the most part. They are my hydration option of choice in the summer and I always have at least a glass ready for me in the fridge, if not a pitcher.

I am a self-proclaimed David’sTea fangirl, so please excuse the fact that most of my logs tend to be a little biased in their favour. I just can’t help myself, I must try all-the-tea from David’s!

I’m starting to get interested in matcha, and though I’ve loved the cups I’ve had prepared for me by others, I’ve never tried making it myself. I’m going to have to break down and order some soon, if only just to try.
