A recent acquisition from the Secret Garden Organic Herb Shop, I only purchased a little bit of this blueberry black tea after a poor experience with another blueberry-flavored black tea, specifically a blueberries and cream, in which only the cream flavor was actually noticeable. This tea was the complete opposite.

A two cup teapot, two teaspoons of leaf, and just boiled water combine in five minutes to make a delicious, strong, yet not bitter or overwhelming pot of tea. The blueberry flavor was not as intense or juicy as one might get from a blueberry green tea (probably because the black tea balanced it a bit more). The blue flowers were a visually appealing addition to an otherwise plain and dark tea. This drink was definitely worth sampling. On my personal enjoyment scale, I rate this tea an 87/100.

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
