Taster’s Review:

I wasn’t too sure about this Apr-i-berry Love Child from Design A Tea when I took my first sip of it.  Then I allowed it to cool to an “iced tea” temperature and this becomes a really tasty tea!  The flavors of apricot and blueberry play very nicely together, and the black tea base is strong but not overbearing … it’s a really refreshing iced tea.

The black tea base is – as I mentioned already – a strong base, but it’s not an overwhelming taste.  It’s balanced well with the flavors of apricot and blueberry.  It has some astringency, but, it’s not a bitter tasting tea.  I think it could be if it were over-steeped, though, so you want to watch your brew time with this one.

The apricot comes through very well here – sweet and juicy!  The blueberry adds a hint of tart to the cup as well as a distinct berry sweetness.  I found that the flavors were kind of “muddy” at first, but a pinch of sugar helps to define the flavors a bit better.

I wasn’t all that crazy about this blend hot, but, it IS really tasty when it’s iced.  A great summertime treat – and a nice change from the typical iced tea flavors that are out there!  I love the combination of apricot and blueberry:  it’s different but tasty!
