  • Wild Blueberry (Leaf) Tea

    Mindblowing!

    When we opened a sample bag labeled ‘blueberry tea’ we were skeptical… scented black tea has never been on top of our ‘to drink’ list.  The tea looked very much like orthodox black tea… and the aroma seemed naturally sweet, unlike the candy-like characteristics of most scented tea. 

    It turned out:

    • The brew is delicious! It tasted like a blueberry plant.
    • There is no ‘tea’ (i.e. Camelia sinensis), in this tea; these beautiful leaves are from wild blueberry plants, processed very much like black tea.

    Wild forager & craftsman:  David Tenieshvili

    Harvest:  May 2021

    Process:  oxidizing, rolling and firing just like Mr. Tenieshvili’s black (Camelia sinensis) tea

    Origin:  Bakhvi, Guria, Georgia

    GPS:  42.0 N, 42.1 E

    Tasting notes:  all the aromatics of blueberries, minus the fructose.  This brew has the rounded mouthfeel of black tea but virtually no astringency.

    About the Grower:  Mr. Teniesvili farms 10 hectares of beautiful land in Western Georgia, close to the Black Sea.  Since he started, 20 years, he has practiced ONLY organic agriculture and sustainable foraging (the valleys and hills have may wild tea plants, some 3m high and 100 years old).
