This was really good y’all. Very blueberry and definitely cakey. Not sickeningly sweet cakey, but genuinely blueberry crumble up in here.

I brewed it as per the directions but given that everyone seems to find it more of a green than a black, I am wondering if I should lower the temperature and possibly the steeping time for the next cup I make.

It didn’t get bitter when made with boiling water so that was good! I’m not the biggest fan of green tea (more so because I always oversteeped it and used boiling water before I knew better, not because it’s got problems), but I really loved this.

Another Della Terra Tea for the win. I will have to compare with my other DellaTerra fave, the Blueberry Creme. Yum.

(what’s with tea companies spelling it like “Creme” vs “Cream” anyway? Is that an American thing?)
((That isn’t related to this tea whatsoever but it’s midnight so I’m ramblin’ on.))

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
