drank Blueberry Cocktail by SpecialTeas
302 tasting notes

This is the first SpecialTeas tea that I haven’t been thrilled with. I really wanted this to be like a blueberry cobbler flavor. But it isn’t.

Smell of unbrewed tea is very herby and flowery. I don’t smell much blueberry.

Brewed tea smells strongly of grapes and hibiscus. When I first tasted it, I immediately yelled “EWWW”. Then about a second later, said “mmm, blueberry”. The blueberry flavor definitely hits you about a second or two later. It tastes pretty strongly of grapes too. It’s just ok.

This was a sample.

Update – I noticed that this is really tasty when cooled completely. I think it would make an excellent iced tea. This tea did grow on me after a couple of cups so I am upping my original rating.

Update – And now I have to up it again. I am out of this tea and find myself really wanting a cup of it. I guess I am going to order some after all.
