Who else but 52Teas would make this amazing breakfast treat into a Halloween inspired tea!?!?!
Boo-Berry Cotton Candy Zomba Tea is a blend of green tea, blueberries, and natural flavors and is a reblend from a few years ago. When you first open this pouch of Halloween goodness, you are pleasantly greeted with this resounding blueberry sweet-almost vanilla – aroma. Really lovely and one that just screams, brew me up!
I anxiously prepped up water per the parameters on the package and allowed the tea to cool for a few minutes. I was literally just starting at the timer willing the time to go faster. When this tea was released a few years ago, I was crazy over it. I loved the bright blueberry flavors that mingled with the green tea base perfectly with a touch of sweetness. I haven’t had a blueberry tea that fit the bill exactly and I’ve tried a ton trying to find something similiar.
First sip in and I’m hooked. The huge blueberries bring in this gorgeous bright and vibrant berry flavor where the natural flavors that have been added in almost bring a sweet yogurt quality. Toss in the gorgeous contrast of the vegetal tea base-Zomba green tea and you have yourself a proper Halloween treat. I don’t pick up a huge cotton candy flavor but I’m curious if a cold brew wouldn’t yield that flavor profile. Smooth, fruity, creamy with a slight vegetal twist-this tea has my name written all over it!
Cup after cup, this tea does not disappoint. Sure this tea isn’t like the original blend but I actually think I enjoy this re-invented blend even more. I’m extremely partial to 52Teas Zomba tea base and add in the hauntingly fun boo berry flavors, I’m sold.
Grab your pouch soon! This is an extremely limited tea and even though this is a Halloween inspired treat, this tea would be amazing hot or cold any day of the week!
Well done 52Teas! Well done!
Here’s the scoop!

This tea is part reblend, part re-imagining. One tea that sold pretty well was the Boo-Berry Cotton Candy Green Tea that we reblended as part of a “You Choose the Reblend” incentive from our start-up Kickstarter campaign. I happened to have some Zomba Steamed green tea from the Satemwa Estate in Malawi on the shelf and I was trying to think of something to do with it – and since Halloween was approaching, I thought, “Ohh! How about the Boo-Berry Cotton Candy but with the Zomba steamed green tea base? That should be spook-tacular!”
And it is! This is hauntingly delicious! (OK, enough of the Halloween wordplay, already!)
An abundant blueberry AND cotton candy flavor to this – with a lovely sweet, creamy note that hints at vegetation from the Zomba base.
