100

Got this from Rachel@iHeartTeas as part of the “Rescued from Retirement,” initiative between her newly formed company and 52teas.

The first sip is a blueberry explosion! So yummy! I feel like it’s a naughty dessert (or breakfast!) instead of a low-cal tea. I taste sweet, juicy blueberries and a bit of a vanilla or cream flavor, perhaps to get the “cream cheese” taste. So glad this was included in their inaugural run… it’s so delish!

Second steep: the tea bag is still HOT, which tells you how quickly I gulped this down. I upped the rating; this second steep tastes as good as the first. Not all blueberry teas can say that! So often the blueberry flavor is faint, or an afterthought. But this tea is blueberry-in-your-face, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Bio

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
