I made this one hot for the virtual tea tasting and liked it but didn’t love it—it was very cinnamon-y and a bit lacking in berry flavor. Since all the flavoring elements here are natural ingredients, I thought they’d benefit from a long cold steep since that would really draw out all the berry flavor. Cold, this is much better!

The color is so pretty, a nice rosy pink. Which means lots of berry flavor! And indeed, it’s a lot stronger this way. A little tart, with distinct raspberry and goji berry notes. The cinnamon comes in at the end instead of overwhelming the cup, and it really adds to the green tea/berry combo to make this very cobbler-ish but still fresh & fruity.

It does have a pretty color.

I shall have to try it cold!

Hey, this isn’t bad. When I brewed it hot, I could definitely taste the cinnamon but was having a hard time tasting the berries. It reminded me of an apple cider, even though there are no apples in it. But then as it cooled off, the berry flavor came through a lot more and the cinnamon flavor became a bit more muted. This is much more enjoyable cold.

I like how there are varying steep times, too. I’ll have to see how the flavor changes the second steeping of this later tonight.

Thanks, STEAp Shop for the sample! This is for the Virtual Tea Tasting 9/23/12

This tea is so visually pleasing – I love the way the berries look amongst the tea leaves.
This brewed up lighter than I was expecting but the package notes that a second steep of ~4 minutes is recommended.
This tastes buttery! It is like a berry cobbler or something. Wow good :)
I really like the way the berry flavors work with the green tea – I get a really nice round fullness of the berries that is supported by the buttery green. This is such a brilliant idea for a tea combo! Or rather, a really simple idea that came out absolutely perfectly.
This was a sample for the virtual tea tasting here this September… I think I might need to order more of this when I have a tea budget again.

Now that I have a better idea of what is in this blend and how others perceived it I thought I would have another go at it. My first time with it left me confused. I had a preconceived notion of what this would taste like and this is something completely different. Steeped per instructions. The brew has a slight purple tint. There is a very light tartness that I now know comes from lingonberry (I had never heard of them before). I taste a fair bit of cinnamon. The main flavor though and the one I couldn’t separate out before is raspberry. That should be obvious but it blends seamlessly with the gojiberry and other ingredients to where my unsophisticated palate couldn’t place what I was tasting. If this were decaf my wife would probably love this. It is not something I would buy but I would never turn down a cup if offered. I think it is tasty, it just doesn’t grab my interest. Thanks sTEAp Shoppe for the sample.

Mmm cinnamon! Received this sample as part of the virtual tea tasting, which is such a cool idea. Very generous samples as well. I also love that there are instructions for a second steeping on the label.

There’s a good bit of cinnamon taste here, which is great (I love it!). The liquor is fairly light, a sandy brown in my cup. I don’t taste a lot of berry but I think it’s there under the cinnamon mingling with the green tea. The cinnamon still comes out on top. I’d maybe rename this one to something with cinnamon in it.

I think I’ll steal this bit from Nik. I like seeing how other people brew stuff because sometime’s I’m unsure of where to begin!

I think it’s officially fall/autumn. This is one of my favorite seasons. I think of the beautiful views of the array of colors of vibrant leaves of the shades of reds, oranges and yellows. I think of apple picking,pumpkin patches, chai teas and wonderfully blended new teas.

sTEAp Shoppe gave me this wonderful opportunity to sample four of their teas and I must say that my experience with the first one has been a success! I tried their Antioxidant Berry Burst. I brewed it to approximately 175 degrees fahrenheit. I steeped it for approximately three to four minutes. The tea liquor was a light yellow color. The taste was a bit of cinnamon(which I love), a wonderful taste of a blend of berries and a bit of a vegetal taste from the green tea. I very much enjoyed drinking this tea.

I would like to thank sTEAp Shoppe for being very generous and sending me some samples. I am very excited about participating in the virtual tea tasting tomorrow. Thank you! :)

This was the second tea I got to choose from the latest Virtual Tasting I was a part of. I love fruit and this blend looks like a lot of fun.

Brewed I am quite surprised at the lack of flavor here. And I’m not really getting much of a cinnamon taste as everyone else had mentioned. It’s not bad, I just wish there was a little more to it. Even the green tea base seems a bit mellow.
