From New Mexico Tea Company

The huckleberry is a flavorful wild berry. Find full berry fruitiness with mountain freshness in this tea.
Indigenous to higher elevations thriving in an acid soil and a close relative of the blueberry, huckleberries are fruity and have a sweet robust tart flavor (when compared to its blueberry cousin). Generally not cultivated commercially, there is limited availability of huckleberries which probably accounts for part if its popularity.

The huckleberries are a favorite food of bears and are thus adventurous to pick. There is a certain amount of wilderness factor associated with the huckleberry which make them quite scrumptious and a true delicacy.

INGREDIENTS:

black tea, blackberry leaves, cornflower petals, natural flavors
ORIGIN:

Blend

I finally bough myself some of this tea after enjoying a swap sample from GiggleGoddess.

The huckleberry flavor seems a lot more fresh and sweet than before. The base isn’t as malty and bold as I remembered, but it still comes through nicely.

ETA: The black base is indeed a touch bitter and astringent as my husband described (see first note), but it is hardly noticeable while the tea is still hot. This is also when the huckleberry flavor comes through the best IMO.

Makes me think of my aunt living way out in Henrietta, her whole family (all those cousins) working summers at the berry farm, and how she lives off Huckleberry Lane. Again, for a fruit tea (for someone who generally doesn’t like them I sure am plowing my way through a lot of ’em this month…oh well, knock ’em out right away I guess) this was surprisingly palatable.

I can tell this wants very badly to be iced; it will be super refreshing, like nearing jamaica-level refreshing, that way. Bet when I do that my husband will be all over it. The fact it’s going to make perfect iced tea is what bumps this rating up.

Not bad straight up hot, but there are so many (!) good teas out there I don’t think I would get around to drinking it that way too often.

I bought this to make iced tea with it and that is what i did. I don’t know what huckleberry should taste like but this taste good iced little malty and very little berry taste. I would consider getting it again next summer.

TTB&C #13

Unfortunately this tea is just not for me. The base is a bit astringent and the berry flavor is hidden in the back ground when I would like it to be more present.

NayLaynn, thank you for including this one and allowing me to give it a go!
