Nabo 2023 Advent Day 18: Blåbär

I steeped this at 3 minutes (recommended 3-4) and there was quite a bit of astringency. Luckily, I ordered an extra 50g of this, so there’s more to experiment with.

I tried again at 2.5 minutes and it’s much smoother with no astringency. The blueberry flavour smells really great when the tea is dry, but it’s not as robust in the steeped flavour. I’m going to do another trial at a different temperature to see if I can make the blueberry flavour pop more.

Bio

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug. I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted/green and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens (mango or pineapple, yum!).

Likes:
Raspberry, strawberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, blackcurrant, redcurrant, fig, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, jasmine, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
