First of all, can I just say how much I adore the name of this tea company! PinTea Shop. Love the pinup look the labels have. I’ve always loved that vintage era of pin up girls and this company’s labels are just simply gorgeous!
This lovely blend is a brilliant mix of blueberries, green tea, and white tea. When you look at the dry leaf, you can see where the “Something Blue” concept comes to play-lovely white and green leaves with pops of blue.
Brewed up with a delicate hand so I wouldn’t oversteep, I allowed this tea to steep for about 3 minutes and to cool for another moment or two. Took my first sip and was ready to be greeted with fruity pops of blueberry. Which wasn’t what happened. Instead I was greeted with a sultry romantic profile that was full of gorgeous white floral notes, slightly hay like flavors, with a background of berry that is light and done with a delicate touch.
With this tea being Something Blue, I assumed the blueberry would just dominate the rest of the flavors and that did not happen at all. I’m crazy impressed with how very gentle this tea is with the flavorings. The tea bases really shine and there is a mystery with every sip because each sip is different in its very own way. This is one of those tea blends that really captures your attention and demands more time with you. Highly memorable, enjoyable, and one that I’ll reach for whenever I’m in the mood for a lightly flavored tea.

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
