Big thanks to Josie Jade for the sample of this!!

I wanted to love it because I’m a big fan of Davidstea Blueberry Jam, so I thought some kind of baked good notes would only add to my happiness with a blueberry tea.

Admission – I have no idea what zabaglione is, (SOME zabaglione? A zabaglione??) so maybe I don’t know what to look for in the notes of this blend, but I’m really only getting blueberry with a hint of something sweet in the background. Is it a decent blueberry tea? Sure! But it doesn’t really taste like cake or pastry or anything else that I imagine zabaglione must be.

I’d love to try the Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish one, that might be more my speed.

This was perfectly pleasant, but not mindblowing.
So far, Della Terra is the king of flavoured teas which all others need to bow down before!

not sure how you steeped it but just under boiling and 2mins seems to be the sweet-er spot for for the zabaglione’s

I probably left it a bit longer than 2 min, I figured since it’s a black tea I’d be ok with 3-4. I only had a sample though so either way it’s all gone now!

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.
