I really liked this one, much more than I thought I would! It wasn’t bitter at all, and I definitely got the blackberry taste with hints of sage that made it just yummy savory.

One thing that surprised me was that when I looked at the steeped leaves, they looked like blackberry leaves – not tea leaves. That made sense since I know sometimes blackberry leaves are used, but I went to look it up on the site and they aren’t listed. Weird!

Maybe another cup is in order so I can investigate this more…

Mom of two practically grown girls, extremely happily married to a man who is amused by my obsession with tea, and company owner who works from home. Life is good.

Likes/dislikes: I love black teas, especially strong/malty ones. I am ok with flavored teas if the base is strong. I like some whites. I really don’t like any tea that tastes “green” – if I wanted to drink something that tastes like green beans, I would cook some green beans. I am not big on green teas or genmaichas. I am learning to like puerhs.

If we are trading, I have a STRONG aversion to coconut, banana and licorice. I love citrus, vanilla and spice. Not a fan of florals.
