The problem with getting more active on Steepster (after being an intermittent lurker for years) is that I’m now discovering SO. MANY. TEA. COMPANIES. I want to try! Hence an order from Murchie’s, placed one night when I was staying up far too late playing Sims 4 and browsing tea websites. My order arrived in record time and I’m very excited to try all my new blends.
This one is a truly decadent dessert tea and I am digging it. It maybe reminds me more of blueberry pancakes than crumble because there’s a slight maple-y element, but no matter. The blueberry is pleasant (if more present in the aroma than the taste) and not too artificial or anything. It’s got a nice graham-y, crust-y element that really works with the blueberry to create a rounded flavor, all layered on a fairly unobtrusive green/black base and accented with the barest hint of cinnamon.
Is it terribly sophisticated? No. Do I want to drink it every day? Probably not, given that it contains sugar and could maybe get a little cloying with too much repetition. But is it bringing me great joy on a rather blah Monday afternoon? Sure is!
Flavors: Blueberry, Cinnamon, Graham Cracker, Maple, Sweet
