I got some of this in a trade from jessiwrites (thank you!) and I’m really glad I got a chance to try it.
The dry leaf smells amazingly sweet and cake-y, with hints of cinnamon and something almost maple syrup-y. Yum!
Once brewed the tea takes on a life of it’s own and the little silver shards you see in the dry leaf make my tea shimmer in direct light! I feel like I’m drinking fairy water or something.
The taste is very crumbly cake with less blueberry. It’s definitely captured the essence of a coffeecake, but I feel it’s lacking blueberry. There’s a whisper of it on each sip, but it doesn’t ever seem to be fully realised. The base blend is fair and down’t really obscure or enhance the flavors in any way.
I think next cup, I’m gonna go halfway with some Blueberry Syrup tea from California Tea House and see if we can’t make some blueberry cakey magic. But until then, it’s still a pretty awesome crumb cake cuppa.
