Adagio Teas White Blueberry

Country of Origin: China
Leaf Appearance: mix of downy needle-like and broad dark green
Ingredients: white tea, blueberries, natural blueberry flavor
Steep time: 5 minutes
Water Temperature: 180 degrees
Preparation Method: glass teapot
Liquor: deep gold

I was a huge fan when I tried this tea in a pyramid bag so I could not wait to try the loose leaf version. As soon as I opened the bag I was hit with the blueberry aroma. The flavor was fruity with a tart dryness at the end of each sip. It was strong yet subtle and still allowed the white peony base to shine through. The blueberries in the tea itself were few and far between but the flavor was still there. I loved that it wasn't artificial tasting or overly sweet. I will be stocking up some of this for making iced tea once summer is here. I would definitely recommend this tea.
