Cold Brew Sipdown (151)!
Thanks to VariaTEA for the sample! I’ve tried a few different “Prairie Berry” themed teas, and I’ve quite liked them though my favourite has definitely been the Saskatoon Berry oolong offered by DAVIDsTEA. This is actually the first one I’ve tried that hasn’t used Saskatoon berries, and I do think that’s a bit of an odd choice. What makes this a prairie berry inspired tea?
But it doesn’t taste bad – I expected to be hit with a whole lot of tartness and I definitely got some tartness but mostly a relatively mellow, smooth berry blend that was refreshing and relatively juice like. Strongest note was the elderberry, but I got lots of apple too. VariaTEA seems to have found this one cloying, but I thought it was actually very nicely balanced. I appreciated what it offered even if I feel somewhat cheated that this “Prairie Berry” tea didn’t offer any Saskatoon Berries.
