I think this is another time when knowing what an acai berry actually tastes like would have been beneficial to me. So with that in mind…
I finally finished the box of this that I had. I forgot I even had it, really. When Lipton first introduced their “green tea with superfruit” line I thought I would get a box of each and try it. I flip-flop at work between loose tea being the best thing ever and being too big of a hassle to bring to a seminar or meeting. I like being able to walk in the door of a meeting and throw a bag out of my cup, not have to worry about having a coaster or whatever for my steeping basket to sit on so I don’t ruin the table. So I always have a nice stock of tea bags in my office, along with my collection of loose leaf.
Since one of the teas in my collection at work is Blueberry Jam, I have a hard time with blueberry-flavoured anything since I have something I can so easily compare. This is one of those that just doesn’t hold up. I can taste “berry” artificial flavour, and other than that it’s just a low-grade green tea. I can’t taste anything even remotely like an acai fruit (theoretically…), but since they’re so expensive I find it bloody hard to believe it’s in a tea bag I paid less than $0.10 for. The tea isn’t TERRIBLE, but it’s certainly no Blueberry Jam. In fact, it’s certainly no blueberry.
Verdict: would buy something else over this, even if I was looking for a bagged tea.
