I may be wrong here, but I do believe that this is the first Huckleberry flavored tea that I’ve tried. I guess that’s because the humble huckleberry isn’t as popular as its cousin the blueberry … but it sure is tasty!
The black tea is pretty mild here, I suspect it is a Ceylon base. But, that’s OK, because the mellow flavor of the black tea allows for a strong berry flavor to shine through. The huckleberry flavor is a little tart and a little sweet … just slightly sweeter than a blueberry, but with that distinct berry tart note that delicately tickles the tongue in the finish.
Overall, this is a very tasty black tea. It tastes good hot, but I prefer it iced. A pinch of sugar enhances the berry flavors. This is the kind of tea that you’ll want to brew big pitchers of for your next picnic or BBQ with friends and family – everyone will love it.
