TTB tea! This is actually one of the better teas I’ve tried from Deb! I overleafed, which definitely helped. I taste a lot of lavender and a lot of blueberry. The black tea is a nice hearty base to go with it. There’s nothing cakey, but it’s tasty! I enjoyed this both warm and cold and almost wish I’d grabbed more than one serving!

Strange VariaTea TTB #3

The dry leaf of this tea is so pretty and it smells lovely. Unfortunately, once it’s steeped the lavender totally takes over! I don’t taste blueberry and I definitely don’t taste angel food cake; it’s just coming across as a lavender black tea. To be fair, it’s a very nice lavender…not too soapy or perfumey for my tastes. But I was hoping for more based on the name.

I, too, like lavender in tea, but that would be very disappointing to expect all the other flavors and not get them at all.

I pulled this one out to try but then didn’t get around to it. Glad to hear I didn’t miss anything too exciting!

TTB Review #10:This one was a bit of a wild ride. Upon first smelling the blend and initially pouring the hot water, I was greeted with an almost overpowering sweet aroma that was very true to the name of this tea. It was very much like smelling a piece of fresh, moist blueberry lavender cake. However, after letting it steep for a while and actually taking a sip, the lavender really took the reigns and mostly covered all of the other flavors. It almost tasted medicinal, or what I would imagine it’s like to drink water with lavender essential oils. Then, as I continued drinking, I started to kind of like it? So yeah, bit of a rollercoaster ride here, but would I ride again? Maybe. I do think it would do well to satisfy a sweet craving.

Flavors: Blueberry, Cake, Lavender, Lemon, Vanilla

Deb does tends to be pretty heavy-handed on the lavender ha ha.

Well… that didn’t turn out well. I’ve already tried to steep this two different times. One was a larger steep for family members. That failed. The next was just a single serving for my sister-in-law. I couldn’t tell whether she enjoyed it or not….

As a dessert, this sounds amazing. I love blueberry and I love lavender. The dry aroma is very pleasant. Mainly lavender with hints of blueberry. The steeping tea does not smell good. Kind of like I just threw a plain bath bomb into the water. I love that there are real blueberries in the blend and not just flavoring.
The flavoring leans mostly toward lavender and then the hibiscus hits and that’s all you can think of. Taste something else and go back to it again so you can forget the hibiscus.

Daughter (8) double thumbs up. Didn’t taste vanilla or elderberries but thought I tasted mochi… no I mean boba. Yeah I can see the boba.

The lavender and blueberry flavorings are both super intense. I really like the balance of the two. Interested to see how this would fair with a bit of milk.

Cold Brew!

I’m not gonna lie – I was nervous about this tea. When I smelled the dry leaf it was like someone was slapping me across the face with a handful of lavender. Deb’s lavender blends have totally been too strongly floral for me in the past, so I kind of saw this intense aroma as confirmation that would be the case here.

However, it’s actually surprisingly well balanced and very delicious. The lavender is certainly present and not to be missed, but it adds a pleasant floral quality to what is otherwise a sweet and jammy blueberry blend with a decent amount of round body from the black tea. I really don’t get anything from it, at least as a cold brew, that gives me “Angel Food Cake” vibes apart from that soft sweetness – but as a blueberry lavender blend I’m actually pretty happy!

I still have reservations about how intense the lavender flavour might come out as a hot tea, so I may very well finish off this whole sample as a cold brew since I know I enjoy it so much prepared this way.

B is for…Blueberry Lavender Angel Food Cake

This came in this month’s Dessert by Deb sub box. More and more I know I won’t like a lavender tea. Doesn’t mean I can just immediately toss it into my swap box. You never know when you may find the perfect lavender tea. So, I decided let’s get it over with – I will try it and pass it along if I am not loving it…which I am not. I get a touch of blueberry, no angel food cake, and a whole lot of lavender. Not the best review but for me, it is hard to get past the soapiness to really taste anything else.

Cameron B.

BLEGH I have the same issue with lavender.

AJRimmer

And here I am adding extra lavender to my teas because they never have enough!

Cameron B.

You’re not alone AJ, Deb was talking about doing a lavender mini-collection for July… (makes face) ha ha…

VariaTEA

hahaha Cameron, we are probably making the same face.

Also AJ, I don’t know if that would make us good people to share or bad people to share? Like if I get lavender I could just pass it to you but we could never make a pot for both of us…

AJRimmer

Oh I’ll definitely have to check the website later this month for that – thanks for the heads up!

AJRimmer

VariaTEA – I know exactly what you mean! My family and I have very different tastes in teas, so I usually just make us all individual cups of different things!
