This was the third tea in the Postal Teas box for this company, though I think it’s actually a Dethlefsen & Balk blend originally. It was nice to get a variety of teas in this subscription box: one black, one green, and one herbal, and they were all pretty good. The dried leaf for this one is very pretty – the picture doesn’t do it justice. Green leaves, tan/brown fruit/ginger pieces, and blue cornflower petals. The tisane is fresh and almost citrusy (that would be the lemongrass and maybe the verbena?), with a slight sweetness that I presume is from the apple. It’s nice to try a “zinger” tisane where the “zing” comes from ginger, and not hibiscus. :) I’m not getting much actual blueberry flavour from this, but I also didn’t see any blueberries in my spoonful of tea. Anyway, it’s refreshing and pleasant to drink , and I think I’ll try it iced next.

Flavors: Apple, Blueberry, Ginger, Herbaceous, Lemongrass

Well it has been over a year and everyone I know thinks my tea obsession is a bit out of hand, so… I guess I’m not a total newbie anymore. :)

I’m drinking a lot more pure tea these days, though I still love a good flavoured blend too. Current favourites: Chinese and Taiwanese blacks, fresh Chinese greens, oolongs both green and roasted, sheng puer.

I really love companies that buy directly from tea farmers, and have an emphasis on quality and sustainability. Favourites: Verdant, Whispering Pines, Eco Cha, White 2 Tea. I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere, so I buy almost all my tea online.

For hot tea, I’m usually brewing in either a 100ml gaiwan, or a 10oz mug with a steeping basket. For cold tea, I cold brew overnight in 500ml mason jars.

My cupboard on Steepster doesn’t include small samples, just the ones I have at least 15g of. So if you see something you’re interested in, I probably have enough to share. :)
