From PureAromaTea

Spring is in the air! Whatever the time of year, bring a breath of new life, joy and optimism into your world with a cup of Spring tea. We love the springtime. The early new green shoots on the hedgerows, delicate spring flowers, heavy dews underfoot and the sharp clean air in your lungs in the mornings… you really feel you can do anything. Spring tea captures this special feeling.
China Congou tea is a naturally sweet, full-flavoured, deliciously aromatic black tea, with a bright gold liquor and a clean, floral flavour. Blended with the Congou are Heather flowers, Nettles, Bilberries and flavourings for a mouth-tingling, invigorating mug of energy and optimism.

To brew, put one tsp per person in a warmed pot or Mug Infuser and add freshly-drawn, preferably filtered, boiling water. Allow 4 minutes for full infusion to occur, then strain into cups or mugs. Flavoured teas such as Spring are best enjoyed without milk or sugar, but do experiment and decide for yourself which you prefer.

Hip Hip Hurray it’s the first day of spring today!!! Officially it is anyway according to online sources. I have been saving this Spring Blend for a few weeks now to celebrate with. :)

In raw form this tea consists of dark brown Keemun (Congou) leaves that are shaped into random knobbly pieces that have been mixed with tiny pinkish/purplish heather flowers. It has a sweet and fruity scent that resembles blueberry or possibly even raspberry (but less sour and more sweet). Yummy. (My husband said it smells like blackcurrant which I can smell so strongly now).

Once steeped the tea is burnt orange in colour with a super sweet berry aroma. Very blackcurrant like and thick now, like cordial.

In flavour this is sweet, berry, sour, rich, earthy and dry. The bilberry is the star of the show with it’s sweet and juicy goodness while the Keemun (Congou) adds an earthy depth. The balance is very nice and it lightens very quickly to leave a fruity dryness upon the tongue.

What a welcome to spring this tea has been, not only has it put a smile onto both me and my husbands face but it also brings back memories of berry picking with my family when I was younger.

mmmm i think i can get behind purearoma’s teas so far. Which is likely a good thing since i have about 25 samples to go through after i get through the shared samples that i split with the girls here :)

I wanted to try this one because it has bilberry in it, and i had a feeling from another tea that i tried that i don’t like bilberry. This tea smells deliciously fruity when it’s dry and even more so when it’s steeped!

I can get behind this tea, though i wish i had a bit more to try as a cold brew since i think the fruitiness of this would work out quite nicely as a cold brew. The only down side to this tea, and to be fair i’m not entirely sure it wasn’t something left over from a tea before hand is the oily film on the top of the surface. I was not a fan of that, since i could stick my finger in the film and make holes where the tea would come through….it did amuse me drawing faces in it though lol I’m hoping when Kittenna tries this she can confirm or deny the oily film.

anyway…this flavour? it’s fruity and light and blends quite nicely with the flavours in the tea. it’s not an overly black tea, but it doesn’t quite come across as a totally fruity tea either.

A very interesting tea! To me, it’s very fruity, reminiscent of cherry blossom teas (with the juicy fruity taste, not overly floral), with a nice black base. I can see why this would be labelled a “spring” blend. It’s quite nice – better than I expected. I haven’t ever had bilberries before, so couldn’t say whether that’s what I’m tasting, or if it’s just a nondescript fruitiness that happens to come across as cherry-blossom-like… ah well, it’s good!

In response to Sil – I didn’t specifically notice an oily film, but I get one even with straight teas, so as long as there isn’t greasy sprinkle stuff on the edges of my cup, I don’t really pay attention. Every tea seems to leave something behind (except some fruity/herbal ones).
