Wow, the scent of this tea after water has been added is of pure, sugary blueberry! I love blueberries, but find that blueberry flavored things can get a little weird if they’re not done correctly. As it steeps, I’m detecting more of the hibiscus.

The color of the tea is like a raspberry, almost blood red. I’m sure it would be beautiful poured over ice! Sipping… Hmm… there are some nice flavors here, but it’s ruined by the stevia. The hibiscus is tart and the blueberry is soft and sweet. There is that lingering aftertaste of stevia that just makes this not too pleasant.

You know those teas that are drinkable if you kind of gulp them down and don’t really “taste” them? This tea is one of those, I think. It’s palatable until the end of the sip with that lingering aftertaste. It’s a shame because the blueberry flavor is just right & the hibiscus isn’t too strong.
