I absolutely love this blueberry tea- the scent is just overwhelmingly blueberry! Blueeeeeberryyy goodness. I love the freeze-dried pieces of blueberry. I won’t lie and say that I cannot taste the (organic) rooibos, but I actually like the taste of rooibos so this is fine. I do seem to be the only reviewer who could make it out though, so perhaps it’s in my mind. Do be mindful not to oversteep this one or it quickly veers into medicinal territory- berry teas tend to do that to me.If you’re getting a hint of the cough syrup, tone down the steepage. I love the Rishi flavors, I really do. Mmmmmm.

As soon as you open the tin of this tea a sweet blueberry smell hits you in the face(In a good way of course..). It’s very strong and as it’s hanging out and steeping it makes your entire kitchen smell like blueberries :] It made me SO hungry sitting there and smelling it. The taste isn’t so bad either. A bit tart but it’s very light. It reminds me of blueberry pie! Honestly.. I REALLY wanted a scoop of vanilla ice cream with this wonderful rooibos. I really liked it :]

Surprised to say, I love this. Makes my whole office smell like blueberry muffins. I do not like blueberries or fruit tea, but somehow rooibos has saved another concoction. On second steep I taste more of the hibiscus, so I’d avoid that unless it’s your cup o’ tea.

I have a hard time drinking this straight, but mixed with some honey it is great. I look forward to trying this iced in the summer. The taste is of real blueberries, not that artificial candy blueberry flavor. It can be very tart if overbrewed.

This tea tastes artificial and very fruity; and, unfortunately, the taste of the Rooibos is overpowered by the other ingredients. The resulting brew is intense and flavorful, and slightly tangy.

The blend noticeably includes many real dried blueberries.

From the product’s label: “Ingredients: 100% Organic Fair Trade Certified rooibos, 100% Organic blueberries, 100% Organic schizandra berries, 100% Organic hibiscus, natural blueberry and strawberry flavors.”

I love when the fruit’s organic too!

This was the first tea that lead me to Rishi – I found it at a local coffee shop where I would spend lots of time doing homework. Kept going back because I didn’t know where else to get it!
Hot I add a bit of honey… but is also magnificent iced. A local cafe where I like to grab lunch is trained to bring me a glass of ice each time I order it :) Even my friends who “don’t like tea” or those who claim they “don’t like fruity tea” cannot get enough of this.
And what aren’t blueberries good in? Seriously… tea… beer… mmmm…

Alright, I changed my mind. After brewing a pitcher of it to have iced, I feel like I should add that it’s delicious cold. While the rooibos flavor seemed stronger when it was hot, it takes on a different and much more refreshing note when it’s cold. My brother and I went through the whole pitcher in one day. It’s sweet and summery, with a hint of something creamy in the aftertaste like vanilla.

I’ve upped the rating score just a little because of this. If you have this tea and haven’t tried it iced, I highly recommend that you do!

Also, I should note that though I mentioned before that this tea smells VERY strong when you open the package, it doesn’t describe what it’s like to make half a gallon at once. My entire apartment REEKED of blueberry. In fact, one of my roomies asked me if I was making muffins within the first minute steeping. I wonder if the neighbors could smell it, it was so strong!

I got this tea from the lovely Four Seasons Hotel Houston while visiting their spa. (Don’t I sound fancy-schmancy? It’s totally an act.) Blueberry is one of my favorite scents and flavors so I wanted to like this tea, but ultimately it just didn’t do it for me. As I’ve seen in some of the other reviews, I also got an unpleasant tartness verging on puckery sourness from this tea. And weirdly, it smelled and tasted like artificial blueberry flavoring more than real blueberry. I double checked the ingredients and it doesn’t appear there’s anything artificial in it – in fact, the first couple of ingredients are organic and all that jazz. But there was just something generally displeasing about the tea that is making me not so interested in another cup. I did see someone else’s suggestion that perhaps this would be a tasty iced tea with a little sweetener added and maybe a wedge of lime. I’d be willing to try that. But as far as trying it hot again… No thanks.

I went to a local cafe today with a friend that has a decent selection of Rishi teas and decided I wanted to try something different. They said this one was a real crowd pleaser but I was wary because I had Teavana’s Blueberry Bliss and couldn’t stand it. But I gave it a try and boy am I glad! I didn’t get the chance to smell this rooibos dry but wet and in the cup the smell of blueberries wafted up and it was pleasant, not overpowering and I could still smell the red rooibos through it. When it cooled enough for me to sip it I was even more pleased, the blueberry and rooibos are blended so well together, so perfectly balanced and the blueberry wasn’t tart either. This is one of the best flavored rooibos I have had and I intend on trekking out sometime soon and adding it to my stash.

I first had this tea at a local cafe. I loved it! I’m already a fruit tea fiend, and this took the cake. I later found it at WF for a high cost, but bought it anyway. I was happy to see that I made so many cups from one container. This was my first time buying loose leaf tea ever. The smell that it gives your atmosphere once steeping is delightful! I always leave my carafe open to have the blueberry smell linger.

I like to add a little raw honey or tad of sugar in the raw to knock off the tart taste. This def reminds me of blueberry muffins, and it also tastes great w/ muffins too. I’ve noticed this tea to be a wonderful diuretic. I too did a second steep and its good, but not as potent as the first cup. To date this is on my list of top 3 teas, and I’ve been a ‘drinker’ for over ten years.
