2nd tasting of this tea and I think I steeped for 5+ minutes; although stronger, it is still very smooth! The subtle floral and blueberry flavors are still there but not as noticeable this time around; this might be because I over-steeped or because I just ate some funyuns. Will have to make another note later.

A cloth sachet?! wow, that is a first for me.

The bergamot and blueberry flowers are very subtle leaving the natural flavor of the tea intact. Smooth and Sweet black tea with a hint of floral seem to be the dominant flavors here. Very nice tea.

I just ate some Pocky Squeeze before drinking this, so I’ll try to leave another note or edit this one later.

Thanks for this, TheLastDodo! Dolphin sprinkles!! This is such a fun blend. So blue… with blueberries, blackberries, black currants and blue cornflower. The last time I drank this, I definitely had a plump blueberry and a blackberry in the mug. This time around, I don’t think I had any fruit in the infuser but there is plenty of black currant flavor anyway. I think the base is a Ceylon which isn’t my favorite base (too light). I wish there was more of a balance between the three berries, but I like this blend overall.

This tea looks And smells live blueberry heaven. Don’t forget the main attraction, Dolphin Sprinkles. I mean, who cares what else is in this? I could just leave it there. But! Cutesy sprinkles in tea does not make for a standout tea. Luckily, the tea lives up to it’s sprinkles. Yummy and robust, this is a good morning tea that is perfect with blueberry muffins :P

Dolphin sprinkles. I could end the review right there.

Of course I had to order this! It’s actually really good too. Strong blackberry note, and as a first tea of the day it’s working well to wake me up. I may have more to write once I have had more of it. It’s still pretty hot.

But, dolphin sprinkles!

The word blackberry caught my attention. I have been on a good blackberry tea search for awhile. I shall note this tea.

I keep doing this thing where I buy teas because they have unusual flavors (like mangosteen, and now this one, with lichee). Then I drink them and I don’t know if they are a good representation of the flavor because I have nothing to compare to. With that said, this is really delicious and I am enjoying it a lot. I would have guessed strawberry and a little chocolate if I hadn’t read the description. There are cute little sugar hearts in it, which I also love.

YYZ – flaavor has been offline for a couple of days, I don’t know if maybe they went out of business? Indigo, YYZ turned me on to it, it’s back a ways on the Misc. Sales thread.
