I got this tea from the lovely Four Seasons Hotel Houston while visiting their spa. (Don’t I sound fancy-schmancy? It’s totally an act.) Blueberry is one of my favorite scents and flavors so I wanted to like this tea, but ultimately it just didn’t do it for me. As I’ve seen in some of the other reviews, I also got an unpleasant tartness verging on puckery sourness from this tea. And weirdly, it smelled and tasted like artificial blueberry flavoring more than real blueberry. I double checked the ingredients and it doesn’t appear there’s anything artificial in it – in fact, the first couple of ingredients are organic and all that jazz. But there was just something generally displeasing about the tea that is making me not so interested in another cup. I did see someone else’s suggestion that perhaps this would be a tasty iced tea with a little sweetener added and maybe a wedge of lime. I’d be willing to try that. But as far as trying it hot again… No thanks.
