June Wedding! Something blue! And this tea actually is blue, since it is a green tea blended with butterfly pea flowers! (Which reminds me, I should get around to reviewing just my plain butterfly pea flowers… ah well, next round!)

This is an… interesting tea. It does have a very vegetal/herbacious sort of taste from the green tea base mixed with the butterfly pea flower. I remember the first time I ever had butterfly pea flower tea (plain) I wasn’t keen on their flavor, but since then my palate has adapted more to the sort of earthy, herbaceous taste they give off, and having tried a crysanthemum tea not long ago, I found the taste very similar to that flower. It actually blends pretty well with the natural grassiness of green tea. What makes this particular tea flavor so interesting is that the blend seems to be trying to mask it somewhat with flavoring, so it has this soft, sweet vanilla flavor in the background. As for the hawthorn in the blend, I would never have guessed; nothing about the tea comes off as fruity.

I like it more than I thought I would, especially as I continued to sip on my big water bottle of the iced brew, but definitely not enough that I would ever want to restock this. The flavors aren’t bad, but don’t really mesh together in a cohesive way… like, the vanilla seems a strange addition, and something fruity might’ve made more sense? It was an enjoyable sample, but I’ll be happy enough to sip this down.
