This spring David’s Tea sent out an email with some new limited time spring flavors. Now if you know me, the key to getting me to buy things is to make it a limited edition. Some of the blends sounded so good I couldn’t resist, even though my tea room overfloweth. One of the ones that sounded delicious for summer was Blue Lagoon.
From the website, Blue Lagoon combined pineapple and blueberries with tangy lemongrass.
I just checked and it appears that you can’t even get it any more (summer collection is available now!) except as 1 of 5 teas in the Spring Collection for $27.50.
When I first opened the package I smelled the blueberries and the pineapple. It smelled tropical and lovely. Once brewed it was still a fruity scent, with the pineapple and lemongrass adding a bit of spice. The tea tasted mostly of blueberry with notes of pineapple. It was light and sweet, perfect for an afternoon in the sunshine -too bad I’m at work right? Now I’m dreaming of island getaways!
