I’ve always enjoyed Naturally Flavored Fruit teas. My first exposure was an Apricot Tea. Hence, I’ve measured following tastings by my enjoyment of that for some reason.

Metro’s Loose Leaf Blueberry tea is an excellent flavored tea. The unsteeped aroma is inviting. I favor judging expectations by inhaling the blend in advance of infusion.

This infusion was short of my typical 5 minutes. The tea brews nice, full and strong, so I don’t recommend oversteeping. The blueberry flavor is distinct and you get the back of the mouth flavor as well.
If you like milk and sugar, that will enhance the blueberry.
Very enjoyable.

This is Metro’s loose leaf blend, not the bagged which has it’s own tasting notes.
You can also get an organic blueberry from Metro.
My preference will always be loose leaf.

This fruity blend was a needed perk-up this morning. First of, no doubt, several caffeinating blends to get thru a New Year’s eve day. Happy Celebrating Steepsters!!

Sometimes I prefer this one over the Ice Wine, other times I prefer the Ice Wine over this one. I need to add honey to this one, but I don’t add cream or sugar. Nice blueberry smell and taste with a champagne and malty background. Malty is honestly the best description for most of the Metropolitan teas. Again, this tea is very Canadian, or European influenced. I’d give it to a friend, but I don’t think I’d recommend it on here.

I found this tea at The Blueberry Patch in Lexington, Ohio. http://www.theblueberrypatch.org/
It makes an excellent iced tea. Steep 6 teaspoons in 1 1/2 cups hot water. Then strain and pour into ice cold water to make 1 liter. Stir in a little raw sugar. A few fresh, crushed blueberries really add to the refreshment on a hot summery day. ENJOY!!
