From Teabox

Made with the choicest picks of the season, this is a delectable blend of exquisite Darjeeling summer flush teas. What’s more is that this black tea blend comes with an impressive flavor profile of a distinguished character. Look for heady fruity flavors of blueberry and grape, underscored by a hint of parsley, in the aroma of the brew. Its well-rounded liquor, beaming with a discernible astringency and sweet flavor notes of dry rose, plum and raisins, makes for a fulfilling sip and offers an enduring mouth feel.

Brewed at 178˚F and it’s not as aromatic or flavourful as I remember. Probably should brew at 185˚F next time. Still one of my favourites from Teabox.

Per the company’s description, there’s a decidedly grape and parsley scent to the tea; can’t say I picked up on any blueberry though. And when consumed, the flavor somehow morphs into more of a rose with a hint of plum, though muddled with a host of other indiscernable elements. Nice. The directions on the package say to give it 5 minutes of steeping, but I found that made the tea WAY too bitter. Taking it down to 3 minutes produced a much more palatable experience.
