Tea of the Week for March 16, 2020!
I’m pretty sure that I’ve mentioned before that Blackberries are one of my favorite berries (second only to strawberries). Therefore, I’m always excited when I highlight the blackberry in a blend like I’ve done with this tea – it’s just Oolong Tea & Blackberry! (Organic TieGuanYin, to be specific!)
The TieGuanYin is sweet, creamy & somewhat floral & it melds so beautifully with the sweet, juicy flavor of blackberries! I love the way the two come together in my teacup! It’s a rather simple blend – it might not be quite as imaginative as say, a Candy Cane Truffle tea or a Pineapple Cheesecake tea, but what it lacks in imagination, it more than makes up in flavor because this one is knocking my socks off!
This blend is organic, VEGAN, gluten-free & allergen-free – not to mention absolutely delicious!

Hello, Steepsterites! I wish I was back under happier circumstances but you know there is nothing like Covid-19 temporary layoffs and chronic illness flare-ups to get one back to the basics and appreciating the little luxuries in life (hello, tea).
The floral traits of the tieguanyin smooth out the tangy dark berry notes. Blackberry is the dominate berry flavour here but the flavouring can also go in interesting directions, like blueberry or black currant. The cream note rounds this tea into the pastry-like category.
We will see how it holds up to re-steeping.
