One thing I really love about White August Tea is their unique names for their blends. This blend, A Girl's Best Friend, contains Sri Lankan black tea along with blueberries, elderberries and hibiscus. It really is a pretty blend with the darkness of the wiry tea leaves along with the blue and red of the berries. To the dry nose, I am able to pick up a slight maltiness of the black tea leaves along with the sweetness of the berries.

This sample came to me as a one cup serving so I am not exactly sure of how much of the blend I used. I did follow the instructions on the sample and let it steep for five minutes at 205 degrees. The resulting liquor is a darker golden brown that still have a slight malty aroma with the scent of the berries shining thru.

This is a well rounded cup of tea with a medium mouthfeel. The tanginess of the hibiscus leads the way with the sweetness of the berries following right after. The maltiness of the black tea makes itself known at the end lingering as an aftertaste blended with blueberries.

This makes for a delightful cup of tea and I know that I will be picking some up the next time I go shopping at White August Tea. They have a wonderful selection of teas and if you aren't quite sure just what you are in the mood for, then pick up one of their sampler packs that you are able to design.
