I’ve tried this tea a few times now, and I have to admit that I wasn’t that impressed the first time I tried it. The black tea tasted very bitter to me, and the blueberry flavor wasn’t strong enough to compensate for the bitterness. I felt particularly bad about not loving this tea because the lovely Rachel of iheartteas not only rescued this tea from retirement, but she also graciously sold me a package from her private stash. sigh

I’m happy to report that I like this tea better today. I adjusted my Breville to a medium strength brew, and this helped a lot with the bitterness. I also let my tea cool off to room temperature which brought out more of the blueberry flavor. I’m considering cold steeping Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish as iced tea, like Rachel did the other day, to see if I can get the cream cheese flavor to come through.

best of luck with the cold brew! That should do away with the bitterness at least, hopefully enough to let the cream cheese through. Yum :)

Wow, I am so happy you enjoyed this. I too made this cold brewed but it was a little strange. Please don’t let that stop you though. Give it a go and let me know what you think. Thanks for your kind words too. :)

I’m an animal loving vegan foodie, and a card carrying tea fanatic! Didn’t you get your card?

I typically drink my black tea with a splash of almond or coconut cream and a dash of turbinado sugar or stevia. My green teas I typically drink straight, and the same goes for most of my other teas with an occasional exception. I live on the edge!

Please check out my website Cookin’ Vegan at www.cookinvegan.com if you’re hungry.

I’m also a bit of a knitwit. I have an Etsy shop where I sell pretty little knitted and knitting accessories called Baubles 4 Knitwits at www.Baubles4Knitwits.etsy.com.
