I think that I ordered this tea thinking it was only rooibos and would be good to have a cup of at night. Last night I went to make a cup and realized that it had black tea and rooibos in it, so I decided to wait until this morning to have a cup. The dry leaves smell strongly of sweet blueberries and rooibos. I’m not loving the mediciney smell from the rooibos, but hopefully it won’t be too strong in the flavor. The tea smells like warm blueberry jam. The flavor is slightly malty with a juicy blueberry finish. There is a nice sweet cream aftertaste. I added a little sugar, which brought out more of the fresh blueberry flavor. Then I added some cream and it made the cup very dessert-like, like a rich, creamy dessert. I think I prefer the Blueberry Crumble to this one, but this still isn’t bad. And luckily not a whole lot of the rooibos flavor comes through.

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves and small pieces of red rooibos with large dried blueberries and small blue petals.
-Dry leaves smell strongly of blueberries and rooibos. Tea liquor aroma is of warm blueberry jam.
-Tea liquor is a clear dark reddish brown color.
-Slightly malty flavor with a juicy blueberry finish. Sweet cream aftertaste.
-Milk and sweetener optional.
-Good tea. Fresh blueberry flavor with a hint of cream. Not a lot of rooibos flavor noticeable.

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
