Simpson & Vail, Blue Mist
Blue Mist Tea is a blend of Jackfruit (a fruit from India with an aroma of banana and pineapple), Apricot and Mango black teas that brews to a deep amber cup with a sweet, fresh fruit aroma and taste. It’s the perfect cup for summer days when the tastes and aromas of fresh fruit are so prevalent around us. Try it hot or iced!
Ingredients: Black teas, cornflower petals, marigold petals and flavoring.
Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.
Another from a tea friend – thanks! The leaf is kind of pretty to look at with the blue cornflower and marigold petals. There is also some white or silver colored something in there. This reminds me of Della Terra mellow mango, because, well, its mellow and tastes of mango. This really is a very light flavored tea. I think sweetener is a must if you want to bring the fruit flavor out. When a tea is this subtle it needs to be really complex to draw you in. This is ok but not great.
