Taster’s Review:

This is an excellent blueberry tea.

The white tea base is light but it does not allow itself to be overwhelmed by the other flavors of the tea.  It has a sweet, fresh flavor that enhances the blueberry flavor.

The blueberry tastes very authentic.  It tastes like ripe blueberries – actually, since I’m drinking this tea hot, what it reminds me of is the blueberry taste in a piping hot blueberry muffin, bursting with sweet, juicy deliciousness!

There is also hibiscus in this blend, but I am happy to report that it is a very small amount of hibiscus.  Just enough to add a wee bit of tartness in the aftertaste, and a pleasant texture to an otherwise very light bodied tea.

I quite enjoyed this blend.  It is best served hot because the delicate nature of this tea tends to become a bit muted as it cools, however, if you want it iced, just add a little bit of sugar or other sweetener (try honey or agave nectar) and this will enhance the flavors a bit.

If you love blueberries – you really should try this tea!
