I just love a day when I can wake upon my own time and then leisurely peruse my samples to find one that fits my mood. The one that caught my attention this morning is one from a new to me vendor, White August. They started up in 2008 in Phoenix AZ and then started selling online in 2009. They do offer quite a few varieties of tea so they are well worth checking out.

My sample this morning is called Plum Proud. It is a black tea married with French plums, cranberries, raspberries and then to top it off, it has strawberry flavorings. My sample didn't have any chunks of berries but instead has shavings mixed with the dark brown tea leaves. The aroma is appetizing with the scent of plums and strawberries.

The site doesn't have any brewing suggestions so I went with my little one cup sample, eight ounces of boiling water and a steep time of 3 minutes. The resulting liquor is medium golden brown that is loaded with the smell of berries.

My first sip was an explosion of flavors, so much in fact that I couldn't pick out the individual tastes. The next was slightly calmer and I was able to separate the plum and raspberries. I was very happy that the strawberry flavoring didn't override the actual berries but instead plays a supporting role. Excellent job of blending. Very enjoyable cup of tea.

If I had any disappointment with the tea, it would have to be the fact that there just wasn't enough in my sample to be able to ice a cup also. Especially as this tea is recommended as an iced tea. I will most definitely be picking some up for icing this summer.
