Another sampler from ETS. I tried it first without sugar, very bitter. Added a little sugar, the description is right, sugar does help bring out the taste of huckleberries.
I’ve never had huckleberry tea before, the closest I have tried that I could compare it to would be blueberry tea but I like this a lot better. It’s a little more bitter than I like (a tea that’s not Earl Grey) but I think if I shortened the steeping time it would be less bitter.
It has a not unpleasant aftertaste similar to blueberries. I don’t think I would buy this tea again but I wouldn’t turn down a cup if offered to me.
