I must admit that I’m feeling a little ornery this afternoon. I’m not sure why really. I probably just need a snack or a hug. Both would be nice actually. But I decided on this green tea because I read once that the antioxidants in both green tea and blueberries actually help to keep a person calm and positive. I’m not sure how true that is, but if my mind believes it then maybe it will serve as my placebo today and dupe me into acting accordingly.
The tea has a nice blueberry flavor and aroma. It is fragrant both in its dried and steeped form. The tea is roughly chopped, stem and leaf and all. It’s green like cooked spinach but smells infinitely better. Sweet. The small dried berries remind me of my favorite blueberry cereal so that alone makes me glad to drink it. It is distinctly blueberry, not the generic berry flavor that I usually experience in fruity teas. Green tea isn’t always a favorite, but I’ve had a few lately now that the air is getting warmer. It seems like the right time.

I’m trying this a second time, though with the fruit I’m not sure it will hold up. Just finished steeping this and it tastes just like the first cup. I’m tempted to try a third but it’s nearly time for dinner so I’ll probably stop here.
