So everybody seemed to be having froot tea today, and I was filled with the urge to have some myself, but! I had no fruity tea! It’s all desserts, or minty stuff, or earl greys, or straight blacks or chais or…well, not fruity anyway.

But then I found this! I mean, it’s still a black, but it’s at least blueberry flavored, so that’s you know, close enough. This was a souvenir from mum’s trip to Alaska, and other than being charmed by the fact that the name is stupidly long (Story aside! When I was an undergrad I was in a program called Plan II, which was an interdisciplinary honors program that offered a general education and was characterized by the fact that all of it’s classes had ridiculously long names, let me try to remember some of them for you: Religious Sectarianism And Civil Violence in Modern Times; Emerging Selves: The Autobiographical Impulse in Women’s Writing; War Games, Military Intelligence And Other Oxymorons. They were ALL LIKE THAT. Ever since, I have had a weakness for things with stupidly long names) I was somewhat skeptical. Icewine? Yeah, sure ok. I am not even sure that is a real drink (it is).

The tea (it’s in bags, I know, ew) doesn’t really smell like anything except black tea. Once steeped though, I start to get the blueberry. And indeed, if it were just called blueberry tea, it would be great! Exactly what it says on the box! Well-balanced! And I’m a big fan of blueberries, so awesome all around! But…where’s the Icewine? Now, as revealed by my skepticism of it existing, I have no idea how Icewine tastes, so that COULD be the problem. But when the box says “contains real icewine” on the side, you are expecting something noticeable! Oh well, at least it’s tasty.

A good black tea. The blueberry flavor is nice. It isn’t overpowering, but certainly present.
