Time for another pot of tea me thinks and I have happily acquired a fair stock of Davids Teas thanks to you wonderful Steepsterites. Perhaps it’s time I use a few of the smaller samples up, after all there is no time like the present. So they say anyway.
This blend has a lot of lovely blueberries, small but whole and very sweet smelling. So much so that it really does have a blueberry jam essence about it. :) Yummy.
As soon as I poured the water onto the mixture a strong aroma of blueberry came drifting up, it smells incredible! Exactly like blueberry jam. What does jam smell like? Well I don’t really know… thickly fruity and sweet?
Once steeped the tea is brown in colour and still has the same delicious blueberry jam aroma. Based on the smell alone I imagined the tea would be a red/purple colour but oh well.
Flavour is thick, fruity, sweet and oh so good! It’s blueberry, it looks like blueberries, it smells like blueberries and it tastes like blueberries. What more could you want from a blueberry tea?
The black tea is at the perfect balance for this blend, it’s not strong but you can taste a subtle earthy somewhat wooden taste but only for a second or two. The stevia balances that out I imagine and leaves you wish the sweet goodness of blueberries.
