    Honeydew Blues Frappe
    The intoxicating perfume of a sweet honeydew melon pairs perfectly with the crisp taste and fragrance of BOULDER BLUES. This frothy drink is a delicate celadon color, and will cool and satisfy you through the warmest days of summer.
    INGREDIENTS: 3 cups water, boiling; 3 TBS BOULDER BLUES leaves; 2 ounces crystallized ginger, roughly chopped; 4 cups cubed ripe honeydew melon; 2 cups ice cubes; Superfine sugar to taste.
    PREPARATION: Chill 4 tall glasses. Brew the tea leaves in 1 quart water, with 175 degree water for 3 minutes. Add the crystallized ginger to the steeped tea and let cool until it becomes infused with the ginger flavor, about 15 minutes, or longer if time allows. Chill in refrigerator until cold. Pass liquid through sieve to remove ginger pieces. (For a more spicy flavor, fresh ginger root can be substituted.) Puree the melon and ice in the jar of an electric blender. Add tea ginger infusion and process just to blend. Pour into tall chilled glasses and sweeten to taste with superfine sugar. Garnish with a thin slice of honeydew wrapped with a slice of crystallized ginger. Serves: 4 – 6.

    Boulder Blues Rub
    Finely chop the following ingredients in your blender:

    1/2 TBS Chipotle Chile Pepper
    1/2 tsp Marjoram
    1/2 tsp Black Peppercorn
    1/2 tsp Thyme
    1/2 tsp Cilantro
    1/2 tsp Cumin
    1/2 tsp Oregano

    Cold Green Tea Cucumber Soup
    INGREDIENTS: 4 cups cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut into small, about 1–inch chunks (about 2–3 cucumbers); 1 cup avocado, peeled, pitted and mashed up (2–3 avocados); 1 ½ cup plain yogurt (nonfat is fine); juice of 1 lime. 2– 3 TBS Boulder Blues Tea Rub (See Recipe Above) – season to taste; fresh herb of choice for garnish (dill, cilantro, mint, etc.)
    PREPARATION: Puree the cucumbers in a blender until completely smooth. Add the avocados, yogurt, lime juice and pulverized tea leaves; then blend, blend, blend until silky smooth! Chill thoroughly if not already cold. Season to taste with salt and sugar. Optional: Serve each portion with a garnish of about one teaspoon of diced cucumber and/or a dollop of yogurt and herbs. Serves 4.

    Boulder Blues Poached Pears
    This refreshing dessert, edged with a hint of mint, works year round and provides a touch of luxury to a simple menu. Its complex taste belies its simple method of preparation. Any delicate Chinese green tea, or a fragrant green tea blend, such as Boulder Blues, or a brut Champagne complement this dessert very nicely. Late Harvest Gewürztraminer and vintage Port harmonize beautifully with it.
    INGREDIENTS: 4 Asian pears, peeled, halved and cored; 1 cup sugar; 2 cups freshly steeped BOULDER BLUES tea; 1–inch piece fresh gingerroot, peeled and sliced thin; 2 Sprigs of fresh mint; GARNISH: fresh mint leaves, if desired
    PREPARATION: Place the sugar, tea and gingerroot in a medium size saucepan large enough to hold the four pears in a single layer. Over medium heat, bring the mixture to just under a boil, or until the sugar is fully dissolved. Reduce heat to simmer and pears and mint. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes. The pears will remain firm. Cool to room temperature and then refrigerate, covered. Remove mint sprigs. Serves: 4.

    Boulder Blues Fruit Salad
    INGREDIENTS: 6 tsp BOULDER BLUES steeped in 4 oz hot water; ¼ cup agave or ⅓ cup honey or sugar; Assorted Fruit (Strawberry, blueberry, mango, pineapple, apple, raspberry, melon, grapes).
    PREPARATION: Steep BOULDER BLUES tea leaves in 4 ounces water at 175° for 2 minutes (Note to bring water to 175° – boil and let cool for 3 minutes). Add hot tea to agave and whisk. Mix fruit in a big bowl. Drizzle Boulder Blues syrup over fruit. Mix gently and let sit for 20 – 30 minutes before serving.

    I’ve always loved green tea, but Boulder Blues is a special green tea blend. The fruty aroma is refreshing, but not overwhelming. I really enjoy this one iced also!—Melissa B.
    This is a very fragant, smooth tea. Barely no astingency when steeped the right way, and haves a very gentle caffeine content, so it will get you going in the day.—Christopher Lopez
    I was intrigued by the blend of Sencha and Dragonwell, two teas I like a lot, but I found that, for me, at least, the floral aroma and fruity aspects of the blend overwhelmed the natural flavors of the green teas in the blend. It's not bad, and I know a lot of people seem to like fruity and floral teas, but to my taste, it was a bit over the top on the fruity flavorings.—Simon
    This tea reminds me of long summer afternoons picking strawberries to make jam with my Nana. While the aroma does have a distinct strawberry and Rhubarb note, the delicate tea itself isn't overpowered by this. It has quickly become one of my favorite teas! I haven't tried it iced, but I'm excited to give it a try. —~Bree
    I love green tea, but I don't taste it in this one; it's overwhelmed by other flavors.—Julie
    Great green tea. I will probably purchase it again.—JD
    I've loved the taste of rhubarb since I was a little girl, so naturally I wanted to give this tea a try. The strawberry rhubarb flavoring makes for a very pleasant taste and aroma. Many a mug has been enjoyed hot or cold during my summer afternoons and is always invested in when winter seems to dark and summer too far away. Good both hot and cold.—iswimlikeafish
    I originally ordered this as a sample for my husband. I ended up drinking it and I truly do love this tea! Its perfect, taste, texture, smoothness. I love that I dont need sweetener for this. It smells amazing as well, as do most of the teas on this site. I am ordering it now!—Ritta A.
    This is perfect steeped cold in my Urban Tea Tumbler, and also delicious hot! I even find myself reaching for this in lieu of sweet treats.—HikePNW
    I love the aroma of this tea. In addition to the fruity flavor, it also has "creamy" notes that remind me of vanilla—Johanna
    very good if you love green tea —alie
    This tea is by far my favorite tea, challenged only by Red Rocks. It is great cold or hot brewed, I enjoy it year round!—Monica
    I love this tea. Its so light and flavorful. It looks so pretty in my glass display jar too.—suzie
    This is by far my favorite tea to use in my Steepware iced tea infuser bottle! With cold and flu season approaching the office, I need a great green tea to help my body fight! Thanks for this wonderful blend!—Taylor
    Boulder Blues is drinkable, but very much not my thing. Which is unfortunate because it's blended from two of my favorite greens. The mallow flowers impart a bit too much sweetness for my liking.—Kilde
    Amazingly refreshing. I have put a tea spoon of Boulder Blues in my Steep & Go bottle, pour fresh filtered water on it to the top. Leave 2 hours in the fridge. This green tea does never get bitter even after 6 hours in the bottle, It is amazingly refreshing and fruity. A pure delicious brew for your hot summer days!—Edwige
    This tea is one that I don't drink every day, but I will pull out on warm days, steep for a good long while, add ice to, and thoroughly enjoy. It packs a fruity punch without being bracingly artificial like all too many fruit-flavored teas.—Abby
    This was one of the first teas I tried from a sampler my sister bought me. At first I was skeptical because other -poor quality- green teas just turned me off, but this is the tea that made me 180 on my opinions. It has such a pleasant aroma and vivacious flavor that you can't help but love it. And being a green tea, its light and refreshing on your palette.—Livi
    Did not like this one for iced tea.—Tea Lover
    Ordered a pound of this tea, and really enjoying it with my wife. It turned out to be quite a bit better than even the more expensive teas we ordered.—Val
    Love the smooth flavor of this tea and no sweetener needed!—Nena
    I was lucky to win a tin of this tea. I love green tea and this was a lovely blend of sencha and dragonwell, strawberry and rhubarb flavouring. I couldn't stop smelling the tea as the aroma is simply divine. The taste is great too - I tried it a few times before settling on the best brewing time as I like a stronger fruity taste. This is like an aromatherapy tea as it smells so good, but with a taste to match. I can see why this is the Tea Spot's best selling green tea blend.—Tracy
    I really love this tea, but the strawberry flavor definitely overpowers the green tea flavor. —Corey
    Lovely fragrance and taste to this tea. I love to have this tea mid morning. I receive a lot of compliments on the aroma. It's great hot or cold too. —Carmen R.
    This is a perfect afternoon tea. Not enough caffeine to affect your evening during the week but an invigorating way to add the health of green to your day. Light and flavorful with a hint of floral/citrus scent to open your eyes and mind to the afternoon push. —Perfect Afternoon
    This tea makes a great start to my day. —Tea Lover
    This one really spoke to me because it has fruity elements but is in no way sweet, and I happen to fancy unsweet. This is a brilliant blend—Randi
    I am one of those people who dislike bitter tea, and I felt this tea was very hard to brew without it turning bitter. I much prefer mild green teas. However, if you are one of those people who really like the bitter Japanese green teas, this will probably be right up your alley. —Jen
    This green tea is a treat to drink especially if it's chilled. It's well balanced with a subtle hint of strawberry and rhubarb. Loved it!—Eileen
    Love this green tea. It's amazing and tastes great! —Angie
    I love this tea! It is probably my favorite green tea for the spring and summer when I want something light and refreshing that's not overly sweet!—Melissa
    One of the best teas I have ever had, I just love it!—Gillian
    Typically, I'm not one for blended teas, however, a coworker gifted me with a tin of this tea, as I love green teas, and I gave it a shot. It has now replaced my typical daily tea. It's a great "introductory tea" for people who typically do not drink green tea. The subtle fruity notes add brightness that's heightened by the richness of the base teas. It's a perfect way for me to take a few moments to escape during the work day without leaving my cubicle.—Stephanie Sturm
    Honestly the tastiest green tea I've ever had Introduced my friend to it and she placed an order the next day! I can not beleive it took me 32 years to find LOOSE LEAF TEA—Nicole Kohler
    This tea has become the favorite of the office. We go thru almost 2 gallons of it a day :)—Nedra
    What we have here is tea drinking bliss. It hits you with a sweet Sencha flavor that lacks all bitterness and is so smooth it can just slide down your throat like sweet cream. This is then followed by a powerful but not unpleasantly strong Strawberry after taste that sticks with you for minutes after your sip. If you like Strawberries then you will LOVE this. If you like Sencha then you will ADORE this. If you like both then you will be in paradise.—Umbreona
    This tea is pleasant, light, and refreshing.—Brant Goble
    I got this tea as a sample with my last order and wi—Kraemer Kraemer
    This is the standard I compare all other green teas to. It's great, I make it all the time, and even non-teaholics like me love it!—Chris Brendel
    Smooth and Sweet!!! Smells enchanting! I made it iced, and my guests drank it ALL. Some took this over the white wine... Can't wait to taste the other Teaspot Greens :)—Angela C
    I've been addicted to this tea for years. You have to be careful to follow the brewing instructions on the tin. Too hot of water or too long brewing, and the tea will become too bitter. That being said, I also get twice as many re-steeps than the tin states.—Mike
    Kept me going through long winter days when I lived in Vermont... super relaxing without being sleepy—Lauren F
    The smell of this tea is good. However,on the tin there is a list of ingredients, among them strawberry and rhubarb nature-identical flavorings. Which is euphemism for artifitially flavored. Never will buy this again!!!—mark meltzin
    You know, I always like the taste of this tea more than the smell. I usually open a few tins to decide what I'm in the mood for and I usually have to force myself to brew this one. When I do, I really like it hot and iced. Yep, I just went and sniffed it again...that being said I love green tea with fruit flavors and this one brews up a winner.—Jyl
    My first tea from The Tea Spot. I'm hooked - this tea is fabulous!—Diane Cochran
    Amazing tea! Smells great, and has turned me into a avid tea drinker.—johnnyBIG
    LOVE this tea. I brew at least a cup a day in the summer, and I make huge pitchers of it iced for parties. ALWAYS a hit.—Betty Shafer
