I am ever in search of the perfect blackberry tea. I steeped this one twice. The first time I did it with boiling water for 3 minutes without sweetener. It was slightly fruity with a smooth black tea base, but didn’t wow me. The second steep was better and slightly below boiling for about 5-6 minutes with a spoonful of raw wildflower honey. It brought out the blackberry much more, but still not quite as flavorful as I wanted it to be. Maybe I should try it as a cold steep.

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
