This is my warm-weather, iced tea staple – I love it! It’s funny how you can enjoy a cuppa hot tea, and it’s decent, but when you add ice, it comes alive and seems like a whole different cuppa! This tea is like that. I enjoyed the hot variety, but decided to try it iced one day – and all the sudden, Blackberry Bramble became my #1 Iced Tea Staple!

My only complaint is that I’m using it up far too quickly. But I am drinking multiple infusions of it. I’m just slightly obsessed. :)

I need to ice this one. I’ve been meaning to, but keep forgetting about it. Plus, my iced teas haven’t been great, but I’m not sure if the teas I’ve picked to ice are to blame or me. Ha!

This is really good iced. I always double the amount of tea I use and I can still get at least two infusions from the leaves. Good luck!

Bio

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
