I’m not normally into Rooibos blends(because Rooibos is great by itself), but this one is a blast… of blueberry!

Snagged the last of this from MissB this evening. So happy I did. I iced it. I love this tea. It’s so freaking good, and the one place I know that sells it is just over an hour away… so not really a place I can just pop into to pick more up.
Thank you SO MUCH for this evening, MissB!!
This is my staple cold brew in the summers because it is very cheap. However, the rating goes toward the taste and its ability to preform as a tea. This tea does not appeal as a hot tea but taste very good cold. I cold brew this overnight so I can avoid the woodsy taste and extract a smooth rooibos flavor with blueberry accents. Overall I am pleased with thee flavor this has as the summer goes on and I drink a few gallons of it month.
This is a little too tart for me tonight so I ended up adding a little bit of sugar. I find this tea very enjoyable. You definitely get the blueberry out of the sip! That was what I was looking for to start my evening. I really like the color the liquid of this tea is too, just beautiful.
It is a tad bit concerning when I open a bag of tea at work and the next 5 people to pass my room ask me what air freshener I am using because they can smell it down the freaking hall. Yeah. That’s this tea. Blueberries everywhere. I only open my cabinet door when I absolutely must because when I do, I know that I will unless the blueberry fury.
Now, the taste? You’d never guess by the smell but this tastes exactly like…..oh yeah, blueberries. Like so many of them. Stuffed in your mouth. And quite possible up your nose.
I promise this tastes better than I’m making it sound. I’ve had it hot and iced and I’m not sure which I prefer. There is just a slight hint of something I’m not completely fond of…maybe something that tastes too close to artificial? Or maybe it’s just the rooibos sneaking into what might otherwise taste like juice.
I don’t know….I don’t even know what to do with this air freshener tea except keep saying thank you when people comment on my new perfume….
This is my mid-afternoon tea today and when I opened the bag I could smell a nice blueberry scent. I drank it after a wait time of 5 minutes. This tea did not deliver in the sharpness taste of the blueberries I was hoping for. Love the color, the smell straight from the package but would not order this tea again. If you are looking for a mild blueberry taste this tea might be for you.
MissB sent this one my way and i’m SUPER glad she did. I really like this one. This is tart, sour blueberry – not that sticky sweet sort of blueberry. I suspect adding a little sweetner to this would make it delicious as well, but tonight i am enjoying the tartness of this. it’s not quite genuine blueberry taste but it is really nice. Especially since it’s a rooibos base and not a green base! wooohoo! thanks for sharing this one with me MissB!

I made my friend who does not particularly like tea try this with me after I had purchased my first electric tea kettle (and splurged on tea to try with it) and he loved it and ended up drinking more than me, probably around three cups.
When I grabbed it in the store I could smell it through the box already. It smelt delicious, like freshly baked blueberry muffins. As soon as I got home I had to try it. I picked it over the other five flavors of tea I had bought that day. I was NOT disappointed.
It tasted exactly like it had smelt, but also had a hint of almost black tea too it. The blueberry sent was amazing, and the taste matched it perfectly. I am no tea expert, and my experience in trying rooibos is lacking, so I cannot comment on that much, but the flavor did not disappoint.
I know for a fact this is going to become one of my favorite teas in my collection and will be a reoccurring purchase for me!
