Very aromatic. The blueberry flavor literally fills the cup.

The taste of fresh blueberries is intense with a slight astringency, a trait common to most dark berries. And ironically, since science in the 1800's was unable to prove it, blueberries are in fact good for the heart due to their high levels of antioxidants. In fact research by the USDA indicates that blueberries rank #1 in antioxidant activity compared to 40 other fruits. This fact combined with their fresh flavor makes blueberries an excellent tea additive. This tea, as you'll discover, has a wonderfully sweet character with a pleasing astringency.

So what kind of tea did we use when making this blend? We used a green Pekoe Gunpowder from the Uva region of Sri Lanka. Green Gunpowder is produced by forgoing the fermentation process required to produce black tea. Instead, the leaves are steamed as soon as they are plucked and then hand-rolled into small round pellets. Once immersed in water, these pellets gracefully open to reveal a full leaf. Gunpowder teas typically have a dark coppery green color, and produce a pale yellowy green infusion, with a smooth, slightly smoky cup with a sweetish finish. The tea is highly receptive to the addition of our natural flavorings and produces a very satisfying brew. Make yourself a pot today and enjoy a cup of this exceptionally refreshing tea! Incidentally, this is one tea that goes well over ice.

Caffeine content: Low - This tea contains natural caffeine found in the L. Camellia Sinensis family. A cup of green tea steeped in boiled water for 5 minutes will contain between 22 to 29 milligrams of caffeine. An equal sized cup of coffee will contain between 80 - 100 milligrams of caffeine. Caffeine quickly becomes soluble in very hot water. If you wish to reduce the caffeine level in this tea, briefly rinsing the tea leaves in extremely hot water will reduce the caffeine content between 25-50% with only a minor effect on taste.

Antioxidant Content: High. The longer you steep your tea the more polyphenols will be extracted. (Test results based on 5 minutes steeping time. Polyphenol percentages may fluctuate with lot, grade of tea, testing method, temperature of water and freshness of tea). More antioxidants are extracted from tea (L. Camellia Sinesis) the longer it is brewed. And the more tea is used, the greater the antioxidant benefit.

Terrific when served hot or iced
