Where to Buy: 52Teas
Green Tea, Freeze-Dried Blueberries, Nutmeg, and Natural Flavors
Looking thru my huge tea stash I have I saw that I still hadn’t tried this particular tea from 52Teas yet. I love 52Teas and have reviewed them for both SororiTea Sisters and my own blog, CuppaGeek. I love the passion and uniqueness I find in the teas they offer.
This particular green tea is no longer available to purchase, but I still wanted to give my thoughts. That is the one problem with 52Teas is that when you find a tea you like, you need to act quickly and pick some of the tea blend up before it sells out. Because once a tea at 52Teas sells out, that is it. There isn’t anymore available unless you get lucky and there is a reblend. And I don’t blame them at all for running the business that way. That is what makes 52Teas so unique. There is a constant flow of new teas being released so you’d have to and some point say good bye to others just to keep the inventory straight.
Blueberry Scone Green Tea is a blend of green tea, blueberries, natural flavors, and nutmeg. The nutmeg part just throws me and that is where the baked good or pastry note I’m assuming will fall into place. I took one whiff of the dry leaf and just sighed. The blueberry and nutmeg aromas mingled together so nicely. Really giving a blueberry baked good feel.
I brewed this tea up with water prepped at about 175F and allowed the tea to steep for about 4 minutes. The instructions did say 5-6, but I wanted to error on the side of caution.
Finally the tea was done and ready to try. I took my first sip and just wow. This tea blend is delicious. The flavors really mix so well together. I will admit that the nutmeg really made me hesitate there for a second because I wasn’t sure how the green tea and the nutmeg worked but the base of this tea is a lovely rich and buttery smoothness with just hints of the nutmeg running thru it. The major tasting note you walk away with is the blueberries. The blueberries in this tea really taste like fresh blueberries that are in a decadent and rich blueberry sauce. There is almost a blueberry jam quality to what I’m picking up. Just wonderful.
This is one blend I hope makes its way to the reblend section soon. I only have a taster pouch and now I wish I had a much larger one! I think what I have left will go to a cold brew pitcher because this tea will be amazing as an iced tea!
