Product Description:

This tea blends together the taste of juicy blueberries with premium white tea from Fujian province, China. Very fragrant, like freshly harvested ‘highbush’ blueberries (the aromatic variety). Soft, rounded mouthfeel with a clean, refreshing finish. A customer favorite, this tea is delectable both hot and cold.

Ingredients: white tea, blueberries, natural blueberry flavor

Taster’s Review:

This is a very refreshing white tea blend that smells as good as it tastes.  As the tea steeped in my kitchen, I could smell it in my living room!

Because this is a white tea blend, it should come as no surprise that the flavors here are delicate.  I like that the berry flavor does not attempt to surpass the white tea; rather than compete, they work together.  The white tea is soft yet crisp and has a faint grassy taste.  The aftertaste is sweet with a light “tingle” of tartness on the tip of the tongue.

The berry flavor is sweet, but not too sweet.  It melds well with the fresh tones from the white tea, creating a very vibrant taste – surprisingly vibrant for such a delicate profile.  A very pleasant cup that is light enough to enjoy any time of day.

Another delicious tea from Adagio that I received as part of their Sweet Melody Collection.  (Look for it in the “Gifts” section on their website!)

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!
