From DAVIDsTEA

We’re jammin’

Blueberries might just be the greatest fruit around – after all, they’re the star ingredient of North America’s favourite muffin. And hundreds of years before moms were making them into jams, jellies and cakes, blueberries were called “star berries” and revered for their healing powers. Another little known fact about blueberries is that they make for one great cup of tea – when you blend them with black tea, elderberries, cornflowers and stevia, it’s the perfect companion to your morning toast.

Ingredients: Organic: Fair Trade Certified black tea from Sri Lanka, blueberries, elderberries, pink cornflower petals, stevia. With organic and natural flavouring*.

I’ve had a few other blueberry teas in the past and was ever so slightly disappointed with them. David’s really hit it out of the park with this one. The black tea base complements the prominent flavours of the blueberries and elderberry really really well, and the stevia sweetens it slightly without being overpowering. I’ve been drinking this straight with no milk or sweetener, but I’m dying to try it just with some milk and then also as a latte. There was a little astringency by the time I made it to the bottom of the cup, and a light floral tone to the black tea…. but overall I am really really pleased with this one. Tastes like a bowl of fat sweet blueberries. Delicious!

I want to love this tea so much.

I read all the nice comments and I want to love it ! But every time I try it I end up being disappointed. The dry leaf smells so amazing, very juicy, very fruity, very sweet, exactly how blueberry jam should smell and taste!

But the tea itself tastes watered down. I don’t taste nearly as much blueberry as I would like. Plus this morning I think I oversteeped it. I let it sit for a while longer, hoping that would bring more blueberries, but in the end it seems to have made them disappear altogether. I can barely taste them. All I taste is the black tea base. Not as appealing.

Does anyone have any particular suggestion to bring out the blueberry flavor ? I have only about a cup worth of leaf left and I really want to love it before it’s all gone, lol !

Day 3 of the 24 Days of Tea
Oh heavens it’s a black tea and I’ve never tried this tea before. Normally this would be a tea I would gravitate far far away from in another realm of teas where this one isn’t, but I brewed this with an open mind.

At first sniff: WOWZERS, they nailed the blueberry that’s for sure, but I had to do a double take to make sure it was indeed a black tea. There weren’t many leaves. This had me concerned.

Discloser: I am not a big fan of blueberries in baked goods, blueberry jam etc etc. I like blueberries raw and will eat them by the handfuls, but that’s about it.

At first steep: I think I unintentionally under-leafed this. This would be a tea you’d have to give 3 scoops instead of two to bring out some of the black tea. The tin was probably only good for one cup. It brewed up a murky purple colour… again it looked very much like a herbal. I had it with cream and stevia today, but should have held off on the stevia because it has it in the blend. I like it. I’m not offended by it. It thankfully doesn’t taste fake, but I’m not sure if the black and blue go together. I think I would have preferred this as a herbal mix. They didn’t add enough black to get me going and I’ve been stuttering a work this morning because of it. I will need to brew a cup of a strong morning blend after this cup leaves my mug. I would say this is an after dinner tea, to have with some sort of fruity dish, preferably in summer. I don’t hate it at all, I’m surprised a I like it. I don’t think it’s going to get the overwhelming high rating that it’s been getting from me.

I would drink it if someone offered it to me from their tea cupboard, but I don’t know if I would spend the money to own it. I think I like the best out of the 3 days so far.

This tea is very true to it’s scent and the blueberry flavor is very strong! I’ve made this twice now; once brewed according to the instructions and once as a latte with unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I have to say I love this as a latte! The first time around it felt like it was missing something. I have yet to try this iced, but won’t be doing so until the weather heats up at some point. Thank you whatshesaid for the sample!

Oh my, now this tea was a treat! I heard rumors floating on the internet on which is superior, Bear Trap or Blueberry Jam from DAVIDsTEA. I can now say my vote is for Blueberry Jam! And I’m not even that big of fan of blueberries!

I started out as I normally do, black tea in the mornings to get me going. This one smelled heavenly but I knew how decieving aromas could be so I prepared for bitterness or worse. Suprisingly, none came! It went down smooth like cold jam on a hot scone and I found myself craving devonshire cream and biscuits terribly while consuming this. I know I’m going to be buying TINS of this! I can’t get enough of it!

Simply a lovely tea.

Blueberry Jam is far superior to Bear Trap, delicious iced as well!

Reading rave review after rave review, I had to go out and get this tea. The smell of the dry leaf is amazing and so many plump blueberries in here. Very fruity and sweet like blueberry candy. Yum! At first sip, however, I was wondering what the big deal was because all I could taste was water. But with each sip I took the flavor kept getting stronger and fuller. I can taste fresh juicy blueberries, real not artificial. It had just a hint of sweetness and the black tea gave it an interesting bit of smokey flavor lingering in background.

What is amazing about this tea is the after taste. After I glugged down my mug of tea, the blueberry flavor lingered in my mouth and it tasted as if I grabbed a handful of blueberries and shoved them in my mouth! Seriously!

Don’t expect the blueberry to hit you right away while drinking this tea. As a matter of fact, the blueberrry is strong in fragrance but the brew itself is like sipping diluted blueberry water. It is the after taste that is incredible.

I found sweetening the tea a bit brought out the blueberry flavor a little more.

Yes, this is tin worthy for me! Drinking this alongside a blueberry muffin or scone would be perfect!

Sidenote: I also love picking out the blueberries after steeping and eating them. Delicious!

I tried this today iced and wasn’t terribly impressed. Maybe it was just the strength of the brewing (a friend made it) but the flavors didn’t pop the way that some of the reviewers have mentioned. Was it blueberry? Sure. But it wasn’t anything to write home about. I’ll likely give it another shot when I can make it myself though to be sure.

hooray! my brother’s girlfriend was so sweet to pick up a batch of samples for me from DAVIDsTEA on their latest trip to the store (2 hours away for the closest one! argh!) so i’ll be doing a TON of DAVIDs reviews soon… hopefully ;)
ANYWAY

blueberry jam! dry, it smells a bit tangy, like fake blueberry flavouring, but after it’s steeped the black tea aroma really comes through, with just a hint of that natural kind of blueberry pie smell. yummy!
in the 10g sample i got, the tea to fruit percentage seems about 50/50, which is nice to see! makes me think i’ll get a lot of fruit flavour.
yep, i definitely get that concentrated dried blueberry or jam flavour, not like a fresh blueberry at all, but still really nice and fruity! and it lingers too, like my tongue is coated in blueberry goodness! hahah
will definitely try this iced and give a verdict on that as well (though i imagine it will be lovely)

This really was not a love at first sip or smell for me. My fiancee actually loved it so much, so I initially got it for him to enjoy. When I would make it for him, I got used to the smell and then learned to love the taste. It really tastes best when iced.

This tea is wonderful all around!

It smells great dry and as it steeps it fills my house with the scent of blueberries – yum! It tastes like BLUEBERRIES and then tea, the blueberries are delicious and I don’t find the taste at all artificial or cloying. I want to roll around in this tea.

Amazing with a splash of milk and sugar.. any time of day (eta: this is now my FAVOURITE morning tea)! Went back and stocked up on a tin today!

I got this tea today in my 24 days of tea advent calendar from DT. I was super excited to try it as I love blueberries but I never found a blueberry tea that I found super tasty. The smell of the dry leaves (and fruits) is really attractive and the color of the brew is….light purple-ish blue (duh!).

So now for the taste… I really enjoyed this cup! It was tasty and smooth and you could taste the blueberries. One thing I don’t like though, like all the other blueberry teas, is the aftertaste of «dried» blueberries instead of «jam» blueberries. I know this tea is called Blueberry Jam, but I don’t taste the sweetness of the jam in there.

Overall, I enjoyed this tea by its taste and aroma, but the best blueberry tea has yet to be discovered.
