drank Blueberry by Tea Hippie
1167 tasting notes

The dry and steeped scent of this really brings me back to my early childhood when my mom sent me to daycare with an instant packet of Quaker blueberry oatmeal. I am actually enjoying the scent because dried blueberries are still real blueberries!

The black tea base here is fine, I mean it’s nothing special, but there’s nothing wrong with it. The blueberry taste is present, but very subtle. I would say the taste is more reminiscent of dried blueberries than fresh blueberries, but that’s okay. I think this tea may benefit from the teeniest bit of sweetener.

Bio

My partner and I live with our bunnies: Callie and Ben, and cats: Freyja and Ivan. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens.

Likes:
Raspberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
