Taster’s Review:

Do you love blueberries?  Have you been searching for the ultimate blueberry tea?  Well, I may have just found it!  This is an exceptional blueberry white tea.  In fact, I can’t recall one that I’ve liked better than this!  It’s really spectacular.

The blueberry flavor is true to the fruit.  It tastes like fresh, ripe blueberries.  So juicy and sweet!  The white tea base is delicate.  It has a fresh taste that mingles with the vibrant blueberry flavor very well.  It also has a slight creaminess to it which is the perfect accent to the blueberry taste.  And because it is a lighter tea, it doesn’t interfere with those subtle berry nuances.

I recommend steeping this one at a very low temperature (I steeped at about 160°F) and for a minimum of five minutes.  I steeped my cup for six minutes.  This is a very forgiving tea (so long as the water is not too hot) – I am detecting absolutely no bitterness whatsoever with a prolonged steep time.

A deliciously satisfying blueberry tea!

Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of “Gramma” and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn’t drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn’t cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn’t cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
