I tried this tea in the store (it was sweetened with German Rock Sugar) and it practically tasted like juice. It was really good and I would be interested in trying it without any sweetener.

The distinctive tart flavor of blueberries married to the fresh citrus taste of green Rooibos make this tea pure joy in a cup. It’s also delicious mixed with other Rooibos or white teas for a blended treat!

The dry leaf smelled a lot like the chewable vitamin tablets, which is a bit off-putting. I’m hoping the tea will taste better. It’s not too bad, with the adjusted steeping times. I got the water boiling, and steeped for about six minutes this time. I had to add a little sugar to correct the crazy amount of hibiscus in this tea. I can still taste a little tang of it, in the middle of the blueberry flavor. The rooibos really took a backseat to the fruit flavor. I’m so glad I salvaged this; I really wanted to like it, but it wasn’t doing anything for me. It’s not the greatest tea, but it tastes quite nice.
I find this tea very refreshing iced. I do wish they would back off on the hibiscus though. It makes a kool aide type treat with some sweetener, and blended with Teavana’s Pinapple Kona Pop. I don’t like this tea so well when it is hot. My kids LOVE to eat the blueberries after I steep this tea b/c they are just freeze dried.
I’m not a fan of rooibos, but while at Teavana in the mall I’ll taste anything. This is a wonderfully fruity, light tea where the rooibos doesn’t seem to alter the berry personality of the tea. I bought 2 ounces to take home for iced tea. A wonderful perfume that’s not too cloying in its sweetness. I plan to mix this with other black and fruit teas to create iced tea blends this summer. :)
I bought this tea on recommendation from a friend. I was sick and couldn’t smell anything when I bought it, so I was surprised when I opened it up one day and the tea was overpowering. I felt almost sickened by the smell, but decided to try brewing it anyway, as I’m a sucker for blueberries and my friend liked it so much. I’m glad that I did because, once brewed, the scent becomes more subtle and complex. It’s a great tea and I like it when I need something fruity. I find this tea better when it’s steeped both hotter and longer.
Love this! this is my favorite rooibos blend so far, it doesn’t have a super woody taste and no weird after tastes like I sometime get with rooibos teas and it just has a great blueberry flavor. I like to add cream and sweetener to this and drink it after dinner, which is what I did tonight. I am on my second 2 oz bag of this and I will definitely buy more when it’s gone.
