I’ve never had a tea from Culinary Teas before, but I think they’re one of the vendors that a lot of other companies buy from and then resell as their own. I don’t have super high expectations of this one, but seeing as how I love both blueberry and vanilla, I had to try it! I don’t see any actual blueberries in here, just small black tea leaves and flower petals. This one was stored in a rather thin zipper bag, so it doesn’t have much scent left, though I can smell a little bit of blueberry. I gave it a 4 minute steep at 200 degrees.
Once brewed, the tea smells strongly of both blueberry and vanilla, which is promising. I can also smell the cream in there. Meh, the flavor’s not bad, I do get a decent amount of blueberry flavor, but not as much as I would like. The vanilla doesn’t really show up for me until the aftertaste, as well as the cream. It’s decent, but not something I would purchase.
Flavors: Blueberry, Cream, Vanilla
