Shenandoah Blue Tea Description: 

Named in honor of the Virginia Shenandoah Mountains, which look blue from a distance. Shenandoah Blue is a blueberry tea with a great blueberry flavor and aroma and features plump dried blueberries. This rich black tea blend incorporates both blue cornflowers and blueberries to impart a taste of summer outside in the wild.

Conventional TeasIngredients:

Loose Black Tea, Dried Blueberries, Cornflower Blossoms

Shenandoah National Park - Blue Ridge Mountains

Western Virginia is home to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains which often appear with a bluish haze from a distance due to isoprene given off by the trees which are so plentiful in the region. It also happens to have plenty of wild blueberries growing throughout. :)

Steeping Notes

Like other black teas, this blueberry tea should be steeped with boiling water. Be sure to steep no more than 5 minutes so you will get the great blueberry flavor without bitterness that comes from over steeping tea. During summer try cold steeping for the same great blueberry flavor with slightly more floral notes.

    This is my go-to at Weird Brothers in Herndon. I will go out of my way to get this tea. It's like drinking a slightly aromatic blueberry muffin, but without the sweetness!
