I am having another evening tea from Martin – many thanks!
The name translates to blueberry jug, I believe, but I thought it tasted a bit more like light cranberry! It does not taste like a hibiscus hammer hitting me in the head.
I have had bilberry flavored matcha before and I think the hibiscus is making this a bit more tart, but not too tart for me. Enjoyed with the last two Marks & Spencer chocolates that I bought before Christmas and a small cup of Chex Mix, for the ultimate taste extravaganza of sweet, then salty, then tart, then sweet…and so on.
A lovely evening snack. Thank you, Martin!
Labor Day weekend was still beastly hot in our part of the world (it’s September, weather pixies—get with it!) so anything I drank, I drank iced. This fruity little treat worked well, Martin! If I’ve got my information correct, it contains bilberries, which I’ve never sampled before. I described them to my husband as “blueberries once removed.” Even with rose hips in the mix, the blend was gentle and not a bit tart.
I had the tea bag, not a loose leaf.
Trouble here is getting loose leaf samples. If you pick up 50 grams in tea store I am going around every day, they look at you with weird face. Only 50 grams? A minimial amount of tea? Why? Or you just pick up a box of tea, already prepacked.
But this tea I got from exchange. Unfortunately, all I got from it is nothing but black tea. it was okay black tea base, but I did not get any earl grey notes from it. The tea was probably Chinese, as it was quite mellow, rather sweet than bitter. But nothing as bergamot there, unfortunately.
Hopefully, it was just old tea bag and all bergamot oil was gone. Or it was badly wrapped tea bag. Even that could happen. Something like half dipped cookie in chocolate, but completely without chocolate. That happened to me as well :)
I have to try loose leaf as well. So far, no rating.

still trying to kick the cold…
this tea is actually kinda nice (what I can taste of it with a stuffy nose). I’m getting a hint of the orange blossom, and maybe the citronella? (Not sure what it tastes like, just know it’s the scent of bug-repellant candles, etc.)
