Last night, I brewed a pitcher of this for the refrigerator and have been enjoying this as an iced tea this afternoon. It is SO MUCH better as an iced tea, the flavors really pop. I can taste the blueberry and the marshmallow, and it’s really quite delicious. For that, I am raising the rating just a bit.

I was wanting to try this one when it was blended the first time, but I was woefully late to the party and when I got there it was all gone. All of it. Nothing left for me. But then after a few weeks I saw that it appeared to have been reblended because suddenly there were two pouches of it. I hurried up and bought one of them. Lucky for me Frank happened to make a tea of the week that caught my eye that day!

And so, this was this end of the pouch. It has taken us exactly three days from we opened it and until today where we say good-bye. Okay, yeah, it’s the large pot that we share, which means I use a lot of leaf, but still… Sad-face.

The dry leaves smelled like sweets. They were berry-y and tart and ever so slightly sharp and nose-stabby, but still sweet. After steeping it’s more berry and marshmallow in even quantities and quite sweet. The marshmallow standing out more in the wet aroma had me a little worried. I don’t really want hot marshmallows, see…

The flavour killed any and all concern regarding the marshmallows. It’s primarily blueberry with a smidge of marshmallow on the side. A plain honest fruit tea and right up my alley! Also, ‘Boo-berry’ is lots of fun to say!

We have really really liked this one, as is evidenced by previous mention of how quickly it’s been used up. The boyfriend had a moment of shock, I think, when I told him to say goodbye.

Imperio! Frank! Make more Boo-berry!

Three days?! That must be some sort of record. It usually takes me a couple months to go through a pouch (admittedly I’m also drinking other teas at the same time).

Angrboda

I know! I think I might actually have to have a look at my usual leaf to water ratio. It seems to have gone gradually heavier on the leaf lately.

BOO-berry!!!!!!!!! Finally!!!! You have arrived!!!

I thought about you all day. When will you arrive? Maybe today is the day! I ran home from work and opened my mailbox to find, not just my highly anticipated BOO-berry, but also the new Strawberry Pancake Green Tea!!!!!!!!!

Wasn’t I just saying yesterday to someone here on Steepster that it would be lovely if 52teas made a strawberry or blueberry pancake blend? Now I get the best of both worlds! And oh, my BOO-berry! You’re so good! Just how I imagined, and yet better at the same time!

This is the best day ever!!!

Agreed. The few I’ve tried from 52teas have been…not so great.

@aisling of tea – It only applies to his back teas, his whites and greens and rooibos i always adore!

Kristin

If you still have any left and want to trade for something, let me know. Sounds like you didn’t like it too much.

AmazonV

@Kristin already sold it on teatr.de

Kristin

Aww. :) I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask; esp since I have some good stuff in my cupboard.

This tea has a fantastic blueberry flavor paired with a good solid astringent malty black tea. I really enjoy all the blueberry teas from 52Teas because the flavoring is so authentic and doesn’t have an artificial flavor or aftertaste. The aftertaste of this tea is clean with a sort of malty blueberry flavor. I remember this having more marshmallow flavor back when I first bought it, but now that seems to have disappeared. The blueberry flavor has remained really good though. So, this is more of just a plain good blueberry tea now.

I brewed the tea hot with 195°F water for 4 minutes and put the tea in the refrigerator overnight to chill. I am drinking it chilled.

I just opened the pouch of Boo-berry, I’ve been hard at work trying to finish the entirety of all my stash so that I can focus on getting fresh teas. I’ve changed my attitude on the procurement of tea for the past while, and that’s partly the reason I haven’t made a great amount of entries on Steepster lately. I realize that if I have a big collection of tea that gets stored for long periods of time, you won’t ever finish any and thus you will have a whole bunch of teas (probably past their prime) sitting in your shelf for 2-3+ years. I opened up a pouch of green tea earlier this year that was at least 3 years old, and it really didn’t taste good anymore, so much to the point that I threw the whole package out.

So now, I’m determined to finish what I have first and then procure more along the way.
I’ve been looking forward to this one (I love blueberries!) but it has been somewhat of a letdown. The taste doesn’t really come through after steeping, from dry leaf it smells great and full of flavor but that doesn’t translate into the finished product. The tea comes out slightly astringent and mellow. It’s fully drinkable, but lacks the bang and the wow that I was expecting. I don’t taste the marshmallow at all, perhaps there’s not enough of it? Or perhaps I’m not picking up that flavour profile.

I love blueberry black teas and this one elevates it to a higher level. Boo-berry was always my favorite cereal growing up-this is obviously a healthier alternative ;)
The marshmallow is mellow, but it’s definitely there. The flavor is natural, sweet & smooth and allows the black tea to come through.
I didn’t add sugar, but it could help bring out the flavors
