12/25/09 I have been very anxious to try this blend and it was in my stocking! Thanks to my youngest daughter:) Very tasty. The sage does not overpower the black tea at all and you can really taste the blackberries. Nice.
12/31/09 drank this again today. Not liking it too much. Lowered my rating.
Not a fan of the flavor. It’s really bitter and has a salty taste that my tongue refuses to believe is a real thing.
I’d pass on it, but if you’re in a bind, this will satisfy your need for fruity tea. I’d suggest some of the Republic of Tea’s other black teas though – like Vanilla Almond or Earl Greyer – if you’re looking for a tasty pick-me-up.
Otherwise, you’re probably better off just eating a black berry. (The fruit, not the phone)
