From Tealish

A juicy blend of wild organic blueberries, hibiscus, and schizandra berries on a bed of organic, fair trade South African rooibos. With aromas of blueberry and strawberry, this antioxidant rich red tea infusion is slightly tart and full of berry flavour.

Rooibos tea is naturally caffeine-free, and can be enjoyed day or night.

This Rooibos blend makes a delicious iced tea!

Wow. So this is the tea that I had purchased from Tealish, which ended up going rancid on me. When I let them know, the company was so gracious and sent me a brand new bag, with some samples to boot! Now, not only am I impressed with their customer service, but their tea as well!!
About the tea:
This must have been reblended. The other review here mentions an overwhelming hibby note, but I don’t see it in the blend, nor do I taste any at all in the tea. It’s not at all sour. Perhaps too many people mentioned the hibs and they took note? shrugs
The tea itself is very pungent. The blueberries smell like something mildly fermented, which I suppose could be the beginnings of the rancidness I experienced last time.
Steeped, I get that same intense fermented note. Adding a teaspoon of sugar helps though.
But… What really blew my socks of, was when I added a dash of milk. It now tastes like a blueberry danish! I am in awe!!
Made that way, I do believe I have found my new fave rooibos tea. Oh yes, this is staying in my cupboard permanently. Mmmmmmmm.

You know what might go great with blueberry? A teaspoon of real maple syrup.

Indigobloom

huh, Scott you may be on to something there! I’ll try it next time for sure :P

Scott B

Cool :) Love to hear how it turns out.

TeaBrat

very nice customer service!

Indigobloom

I’ll review it that time, for sure!
Amy: It really is!! I’ll be a customer for life now :)

I ordered from tealish only once about a year ago, and I am sorry to say I was unimpressed with the bunch I tried. But the recent reviews I’ve read, especially from you Indigobloom, makes me want to give it another shot, mmm this one is also on my list, they seem to have a very nice new selection of rooibos… and no matter how good a product might be, outstanding customer service is often the deciding factor me. Just great the way they handled your request :)

Indigobloom

yeah Tealish can be hit or miss. But I find that about most places anyhow!
Yep, customer service… the cornerstone of small business! :)
Seriously, I will keep going there til the end of time. Really friendly staff, and they’re ok with letting me smell every tea on the shelf before making a decision to!!! ha.

Wanted something a little easier on the stomach… although if I want caffeine for the ride home, I’m going to have to finish it quickly to get something going! So thanks for the sample of this tasty-smelling one, Indigobloom!

Now, silly me forgot how much rooibos gets into my cup when I make a rooibos with my tea ball. Sigh. So there are floaters everywhere. Icky. But I guess I’ll drink around them…

Dry, the smell is definitely blueberry rooibos. Unmistakeable (well, except for rooibos of another dark berry variety. Perhaps blackberry. I digress.)

Steeped, the smell is really… odd. Tart, and not… not really in a good way. Maybe there is hibiscus in here, Indigobloom??

The flavour is definitely pretty tart, which I wasn’t really expecting, since the blueberry teas I’ve had lately have been more of the hot baked blueberry variety, not the tart fresh wild blueberry variety.

I should also note that although the water impacted this morning’s cup of Jane Austen Mafia, it’s not a factor in this one – I used filtered water out of my waterbottle this time instead of tap water. I had to gag down the last of my earlier cup because it was murky and cloudy and… yeah.

Egh, the more I drink of this, the weirder I feel about it. I don’t know if it’s the rooibos or the blueberries, or something else lurking in there, but… egh. I think I’d rather brew up some 52teas Coconut Cream Pie quickly than finish this one. So into the sink it shall go.

On the plus(?) side, it’s nowhere close to beating the nastiness of that Pina Colada tea from Saturday evening….

We have a blueberry tea like this that is better by far with the addition of some vanilla powder. I think it’s just a bit too tangy some times, maybe tart is a better word. The vanilla powder makes it kind of creamy and adds the all powerful vanilla goodness.

Indigobloom

yep definitely some hibby in this one, but I didn’t really notice it much? maybe you got a few extra stray leaves…
Try it with milk if you can, it really transformed it for me. (and a dash of sugar helped to lol)

So I had this while running around Toronto yesterday and I was sad to say I wasn’t impressed. It was tasty at first, but the true test of a rooibos for me is if it can stay in my travel mug and not go weird and this one failed. It tasted a bit like blueberry, but soon enough it was a bit “I’mma let you finish, but hibiscus is the best tea ingredient of all time!” Blegh. Why? Why ruin delicious teas with hibiscus? Ever since the Hibiscus Raspberry coffee cherry mess, hibiscus just makes my stomach turn. I’ll finish out this bag and keep a close eye on the steep time, but I don’t think I’ll restock it.
