After checking local grocery stores for loose leaf white tea, I finally found Archer Farms Organic Tea at Target. Target had two flavors, Green Jasmine and Blueberry White. I was originally looking for plain white tea. The only loose leaf white tea product I found available was a fruit flavored Blueberry White Tea. As a plus, the product was organic. I decided to try it. Here is my review of Archer Farms Organic Blueberry White Tea, purchased on sale at Target at $3.38 for 1.4 oz or 39g.
Organic Loose Leaf Tea Drink Review: Archer Farms Organic Blueberry White Tea : Packaging
This blueberry flavored organic white tea came in a metal container with plastic window in the lid. The window allows buyers to see the loose leaf organic tea with subtle colors of purple, red, green, and brown in an unopened package. The best by date is on the bottom. Metal container packaging of loose leaf tea seals in flavor much better than bagged tea packed in a paperboard box.
My curbside recycling takes metal food and drink containers, I’m not sure about the plastic window in the lid. Plastic could be separated from the lid and placed with plastics and metal with metal. I have reused this container for sugar. Remaining smell of organic tea adds subtle flavor to sugar.

Organic Loose Leaf Tea Drink Review: Archer Farms Organic Blueberry White Tea : Easy to make
I made this blueberry flavored organic white tea in a small coffee pot. Loose leaf tea is easy to make in coffee makers. Read more about making tea in coffee makers here : Making Tea in a Coffee Maker : Methods for Brewing Tea Using a Drip Coffee Maker.
The directions say this loose leaf white tea can be steeped two times. When making tea in a coffee maker, instead of steeping multiple times, start with less tea. The number of times tea can be steeped is a clue to the strength of the tea’s flavor. If you make this organic tea too strong it can be sour, but you can easily fix that by adding water to your preference. A little organic loose leaf white tea goes a long way.

This hot drink had a fresh fruity smell and brewing loose leaf white tea in a coffee pot, gave off a fruity aroma. This organic white tea has nice fruity taste and blueberry flavor compliments organic white tea nicely. I added raw sugar and milk for a slightly sweet, creamy flavor. This beverage is good by itself and would go well with spicy sweet desserts like carrot cake, mission cake, or pumpkin pie.
