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 :)
