Blueberry Green - 2 oz.
Very aromatic. The blueberry flavor literally fills the cup.
Blueberry is a delicious and nutritious treat. The taste of fresh blueberries is intense with a slight astringency, a trait common to most dark berries. Due to high levels of antioxidants, blueberries are in good for the heart. In fact research by the USDA indicates that blueberries rank #1 in antioxidant activity compared to 40 other fruits. This fact combined with their fresh flavor makes blueberries an excellent tea additive. This tea, as you'll discover, has a wonderfully sweet character with a pleasing astringency.
This tea is a blend of a green Pekoe Gunpowder from the Uva region of Sri Lanka. Green Gunpowder is produced by forgoing the fermentation process required to produce black tea. Instead, the leaves are steamed as soon as they are plucked and then hand-rolled into small round pellets. Once immersed in water, these pellets gracefully open to reveal a full leaf. Gunpowder teas typically have a dark coppery green color, and produce a pale yellowy green infusion, with a smooth, slightly smoky cup with a sweetish finish. The tea is highly receptive to the addition of our natural flavorings and produces a very satisfying brew. Make yourself a pot today and enjoy a cup of this exceptionally refreshing tea! Incidentally, this is one tea that goes well over ice.
