From English Tea Store

A uniquely delicious taste sensation, our Huckleberry black tea is wonderful when served hot or iced. Delivering a similar flavor to blueberry, huckleberries are part of the same family of fruit. A little sugar in this tea helps to bring out the naturally sweet flavor, and is sure to make it one of your favorites!

For the best brew, our Huckleberry black tea should steep in water that has been brought to a rolling boil for 2-5 minutes. Each pouch contains 50 teabags, without strings or tags.

Another sampler from ETS. I tried it first without sugar, very bitter. Added a little sugar, the description is right, sugar does help bring out the taste of huckleberries.

I’ve never had huckleberry tea before, the closest I have tried that I could compare it to would be blueberry tea but I like this a lot better. It’s a little more bitter than I like (a tea that’s not Earl Grey) but I think if I shortened the steeping time it would be less bitter.

It has a not unpleasant aftertaste similar to blueberries. I don’t think I would buy this tea again but I wouldn’t turn down a cup if offered to me.

Not too shabby for a little bagged tea with no actual fruit in it. The flavoring doesn’t read as artificial, just a nice blueberry-like taste accompanying a slightly bitter black tea. I’m not sure how huckleberries compare to blueberries when eating the real fruit, but I really can’t tell the difference in flavored tea. I won’t seek this out, but I wouldn’t turn it down either.
