From American Tea Room

Like Blushing Berry, our Black & Blue Tea is a blend inspired by one of our artisan, handcrafted jams. Our Black & Blue Jam combines sweet, ripe blackberry and blueberry in equal measure for an intense berry flavor. Likewise, our Black & Blue Tea features notes of candied blackberry and blueberry. Wiry black tealeaves from Nilgiri and dried blackberry leaves round out the flavor profile for a milky, malty, herbaceous, ripe berry aroma, a deep red color, and flavors of bright berries, floral-woodsy Nilgiri tea and subtle blackberry leaf.

Beyond the obvious pairing of Black & Blue Tea with Black & Blue Jam on toast, Black & Blue Tea can also be paired with berry creme brulee or broiled pink grapefruit. For a refreshing summer beverage, try Black & Blue iced with honey and muddled berries, or brew it strong and incorporate it into shaken tea cocktails.

It was ages since I have wrote a note about a new tea. Let’s rectify this !
This is a tea kindly sent by justjames in our swap.

I don’t really know what to say about this tea it’s just mild : mild flavouring and mild tea – I would even say weak tea…but weak with a hint of acridity.
Just as if I am not drinking tea but hot syrup.
I’m so sorry not loving it James, did you liked it ? Cannot see a review from you about this one.
I am particularly sorry because I love blueberries, blackberries but to my opinion these flavours are among the most difficult ones to success in a tea (along with cherry probably).
Thanks so much for sharing James.

no… i loved it not either. this was the beginning of my blueberry tea pilgrimmage. i was so disappointed. BUT i have been sent teas on occasion in swaps that others disliked that i loved… worth a try as an extra toss in! =0)

Myrtille sauvage is from far the best Blueberry tea I have had, difficult to have another one behind for me

Sil

JustJames

I thought I had heard really good things about this one… but I think I was mistaken. Either way, I was pretty unimpressed. I think this is the second time I’m trying it (doubt I logged the first time), and in neither case did I taste much of anything berry. In fact, you could almost convince me it was a straight tea. I don’t think it’s flavour-loss (since I’m pretty sure Tangier was from the same purchase), but oh well. I’ve encountered other berry blacks that I enjoy; it’s ok to have a dud. Thanks for letting me try this one though, Sil!

Confession: My first tea love, back in high school, was Twinings Blackcurrent. I hadn’t realized it, but my taste buds were hoping for that again here. Well, they didn’t get it, but that could be good or bad depending on your taste. Looking for something that doesn’t hit you over the head with the fruity flavor? This is it. Maybe you prefer a more basic black tea with just a hint of fruit? This is it too. The tea base itself is an odd duck – lighter in flavor, kind of thin, but quite tannic. Not a combination I love personally.

Had a cup at a local coffee/tea shop. It was okay, but the tea seemed to be hiding behind the fruit.
