Taster’s Review:

This may be my favorite offering yet from Paper Box Goodies.  I have recently discovered butterfly pea flower teas.  Not only are they sweet with slight floral notes, they turn the water blue.  Bright blue! So fun!

Leslie @Paper Box Goodies created a beautiful slightly floral tea with hints of sweetness and a touch of lemon.  Such a delicate tea and one that I’m really enjoying.

If you have read my reviews of Paper Box Goodies’s tea, you have already read about Leslie @ Paper Box Goodies’s attention to detail and how it isn’t wasted on me.  Each tea bag has a hand written note on gorgeous paper that gives you the skinny on the tea and her recommendations for steeping it.  Along with each tag is an adorable shrinky dink that she has created.  I have yet to thrown one of those adorable shrinky dinks away.  I’m saving them for a craft project! Her tea bags have completely impressed me and they are becoming a staple in my cupboard.

The tea bags that Leslie uses for her tea allow the tea drinker to see the ingredients in the tea.  Her tea bags turn clear as soon as you submerge them in the water.  So when I prepped this tea up with water at 212F, the bag became clear and I was able to see the beautiful assortment of ingredients and yes. . my water turned blue!!

I did let this cool for a moment and took my first sip.  Sweet with a soft delicate lemon background and notes of floral singing in the background.  Perfect.  Simple yet providing you with vibrant flavors and an invigorating tea.  This tea would be perfect for tea enthusiasts that may not think they like floral teas or for someone trying floral teas for the first time.  The floral notes are so subtle but lend themselves to such a sweetness. I have now tried this tea both as a hot tea and an iced tea.  The results were amazing both ways.

Another fantastic tea Leslie! I would love to see a tea like this served at a tea party.  I could see this tea wowing the participants! Leslie-Keep up the good work!
