Tea of the Week for August 27, 2018!

I live in the Pacific Northwest and blackberries are abundant out here. So abundant, in fact, that you can find them growing just about everywhere and they’re definitely a favorite fruit in my house. Because they are a favorite and it’s been a while since my last blackberry tea – I wanted to celebrate summer (as I hope it’s coming to a close soon!!!) with another blackberry tea.

Now, I must confess, I’ve never actually had a blackberry dumpling but one day while browsing the web I found a recipe for blackberry dumplings and I thought they sounded amazing – so I decided that I should make a tea. Normally, I’d find someplace to try the thing I was trying to recreate in tea form – or at least make the thing – but this time, I decided to try the tea first. They don’t call me the mad tea artist for nothing!

I started with a blend of rich black teas – Yunnan, Ceylon & Assam – and then I added a bunch of blackberries, a little bit of cinnamon and nutmeg and a buttery, dough-like essence to complete the dumpling.

YUM! This tea is really delightful. The spice is just enough to enhance the berries without overwhelming the blend. The background has an almost ‘cookie dough’ kind of taste to it. And of course the tea is robust and completes the overall experience (because if I were to make blackberry dumplings, I’d of course make a pot of tea to go with, right?

organic ingredients: black teas, blackberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, calendula petals & natural flavors

I have no idea what a blackberry dumpling is so I have no idea if this is accurate. It tastes good though. Sil was super kind and shared a serving and this is a whole lot of delicious blackberry flavor. Actual blackberry flavor, true to the fruit and distinct. It is also a warming cup thanks to the cinnamon and maltiness of the base. It tastes like a blackberry dumpling of sorts. Whether it is a dumpling or not, I do not know. Still I enjoyed trying this one a lot and would happily revisit it should it be reblended and I were placing a 52 Teas order.

i managed to snag 1 more package of this when ann updated her inventory. best time ever for me.

I looked it up a bit, and it seems like Blackberry Dumpling is sort of similar to a cobbler? It’s basically blackberry pie filling that you drop dollops of sweet dough into and then bake.

Blackberry flavouring is so awesome. AQ2T had a Blackberry Pie tea, I believe, for one of the monthly blends, using the hand-rolled yunnan base, and I definitely bought more. I don’t think I picked up this one, but I’d for sure also be getting some if it was around when I placed an order!

Very nice, “solid” tea. I would actually love a little more blackberry, but I can definitely taste it and I do get a hint of buttery pastry, too. The base is smooth and strong. This makes a really nice morning tea. I do like it better with a little sugar or sweetener, but it just needs a touch to bring out the berry.

Tea from this morning. Wanted something extra specially delicious since last night was not a great kiddo night – cluster feeding and refusing to sleep anywhere but on mama! plus the realities of her coming early in terms of income etc are starting to sink in. bah! Nurse home visit today – so wanted to make sure i was functional when she was here. So this was the tea i pulled out. So glad i could sneak another package of this one in my last order. I really do enjoy the black teas with fruits that anne creates – especially blueberry/blackberry bolder fruits. Happy to have this one for a while longer.

Hope everything went well with the visit! Cluster feeding is not fun, nor is a baby that won’t sleep. I currently nurse to sleep then co-sleep with the little one for the majority of his naps because it’s the only way he naps (and he needs naps or life sucks for everyone). Luckily, I find co-sleeping much less scary now that he’s bigger.

Sil

It was a good visit! Of course now my parents miss her and want to see her more
