I recently ordered a sample of this as I am always on the lookout for a good blueberry tea that I can easily obtain (because of my intense love of Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish from 52teas…). This one is pretty good. I think I like the Blueberry Pie version from Teas Etc. a little better, but both are just good.

Anyone else know of a good blueberry black tea with good prospects of availability?

Trader Joe’s has a Blueberry Green that I really, really like … are you near one?

SimplyJenW

Yes. Not much of a green fan, though.

I don’t know of a good blueberry black tea, but Blueberry Bliss from Teavana (a rooibus) is pretty good.

SimplyJenW

I do have a Teavana close, but I have not yet made it there. I might have to check it out at some point.

Blueberry Syrup from CA Tea house is pretty good. I have some left from my sample, if you want to try, PM me. :)

KiTT-What I should have said: Thank you for the offer, but that one is an herbal. I really am looking for a bluberry black. I do so appreciate the offer, though!

KeenTeaThyme

DUH – just saw the last sentence of your review! I just glossed over that part. My bad!

KeenTeaThyme

To make up for my earlier faux pas, I just found a decent blueberry black tea – bagged, too, surprisingly. Mlesna Tea. It was a free sample with my Culinary Teas order but it’s so yummy I’d buy it!

SimplyJenW

Thanks KiTT…I will look for that!

SimplyJenW

Oooh. Looks like it comes in loose leaf, too!

Bio

Tea enthusiast, trying to keep up my cardio for the zombie apocalypse. I have come to accept that I am a western brewing black tea drinker as that is where my ‘tea heart’ lies. I started on loose leaf as a way to have my dessert and not suffer the caloric issues. Once I tried it, I was hooked.

I drink what I like, which is mostly China blacks, a few traditionally scented blacks and Earl Greys, plus a flavored tea here and there. I don’t mind spending a bit on premium varieties on occasion, but an expensive tea has to deliver. My favorite places to order are Harney & Sons and Upton Tea Imports. TeaVivre is great for Chinese tea.

My ratings are pretty subjective. If it falls under 70, I may not take the time to post about it unless I had something specific to say. If it is 70-80 I like it, but I will probably not rebuy. Favorites are over 80 and up, but sometimes the less expensive or more easily obtainable version of a similar taste will win out for my cupboard space.

Usual teapot steeping method: 24 oz teapot, 3 perfect scoops of tea (4 1/2 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, 4 minutes. Lightly sweetened.

Usual mug steeping method: 15 oz mug, 1.5 perfect scoops of tea (just over 2 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, 4 minutes. Lightly sweetened.

Usual pan method: 1 1/2 cups water, 2 perfect tsp chai (3 actual tsp). Simmer for 3 minutes. Add 2/3 cup skim milk. Simmer for 2 more minutes. Strain and sweeten.

Usual pitcher method:
5 or 6 Perfect Spoons of tea (this means about 7-9 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, brewed essentially double-strong in my 24 oz teapot for 4 minutes. Fill my Fiestaware Disc pitcher (about 60 oz.) halfway with ice. Add brewed double-strong tea to the pitcher. Stir it a little and enjoy. No additions.
