Capture the deep, luscious flavor of wild blueberries in a cup of tea. This enchanting infusion is made from an exquisite white tea blended with organic blueberries and a touch of sweet-tart hibiscus. Known for its detoxifying, stress-relieving properties, white tea has a delicate, nectar-like flavor contains the highest antioxidant level of all teas.
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!
