Apricot has long had her eye on blueberry. Some said it hinged on the verge of an uncontrollable passion! After a long and snowy weekend – trapped in a cabin on the side of a mountain; she made her move! When forbidden love is allowed to flourish… the tastes can be absolutely refreshing.

Taster’s Review:

I wasn’t too sure about this Apr-i-berry Love Child from Design A Tea when I took my first sip of it.  Then I allowed it to cool to an “iced tea” temperature and this becomes a really tasty tea!  The flavors of apricot and blueberry play very nicely together, and the black tea base is strong but not overbearing … it’s a really refreshing iced tea.

The black tea base is – as I mentioned already – a strong base, but it’s not an overwhelming taste.  It’s balanced well with the flavors of apricot and blueberry.  It has some astringency, but, it’s not a bitter tasting tea.  I think it could be if it were over-steeped, though, so you want to watch your brew time with this one.

The apricot comes through very well here – sweet and juicy!  The blueberry adds a hint of tart to the cup as well as a distinct berry sweetness.  I found that the flavors were kind of “muddy” at first, but a pinch of sugar helps to define the flavors a bit better.

I wasn’t all that crazy about this blend hot, but, it IS really tasty when it’s iced.  A great summertime treat – and a nice change from the typical iced tea flavors that are out there!  I love the combination of apricot and blueberry:  it’s different but tasty!

    This one sounds pretty yummy as a summer iced tea.


Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
