Great harmony among citrus sweet berries and smooth yogurt flavour. Rich citrus fruit flavour, but still maintains milky smoothness. All different kinds of healthy fresh berries in one tea!

Great blend by Zen Tea – Thank you for giving me the opportunity to try it.
Suggested steeping time was 4-5 minutes. I’ve found that Zen’s steeping times are always spot on in every tea I’ve tried from them. I steeped some batches a bit longer, at 8 and 16 minutes respectively.
At 4-5 minutes; You’ve got a beautiful tisane. Really lovely.
8 minutes; Very strong tisane.
16 minutes; Extremely juice-like. My man likes super strong flavours, so I was making this batch for him as an iced drink.
Flavours overall didn’t go through much of a transformation, which I think is good because they were already so well balanced to begin with. On the whole, I tasted currants and hibiscus the most. There were definitely blueberries in the berry mix, but it became a little hard to pick individual notes out. I didn’t find a yogurt note anywhere, nor did my man.
I liked this tea, but didn’t love it – which comes down to personal taste preferences really. It seemed like a wonderfully balanced blend and good quality however, so I’m pretty keen to try it in another flavor (Strawberry Cream, I’m looking at you!) at some point.
This definitely smells like ripe blueberries out of the bag, and a bit less so after steeping. I was surprised at the first sip how much this does taste like blueberries, if a bit tartly (kind of like a dry wine). Truvia made it juicier, yet drier at the same time. The raisins are definitely prominent.
I like this, and I can imagine it amazeballs as an iced tea. Yummy, although I’d prefer it a bit more complex. Maybe it’s the cold, so I’ll definitely try this again in a few days.
Dang, I thought this was a sip down, but apparently I didn’t add it to the cupboard in the first place!
Mostly a berry flavor with a little blueberry. The lemongrass in this blend adds some interest and pep without being flat. Sadly, I do not notice any creamy or yogurt flavors.
Back to knitting and listening to DMV’s drivers handbook.
In between all these caffeinated black teas I’ve been drinking all day, I decided to try another new tea and made a cup of this. I was pretty sceptical after reading the ingredient list and smelling the tea, as it smelled soo darn fruity and there’s just so much in it, I didn’t know how it would taste. I also worried it’d be fairly tart due to the hibiscus. I steeped for 4 minutes in just under boiling water. Ehh, the steeped smell is a bit tart and fruity, not sure if I’m a fan lol. The liquor is also a bright pink, definitely hib in there.
As for the flavor, it is definitely fruity. I’m trying to figure out which one is the most prominent, I think it’s the hibiscus, currants and apples. And also maybe the citric acid? I am getting a tart almost lemony flavor, but more like orange vitamin C tablets haha. Just the aftertaste though, so don’t be too freaked out. It does say there’s vitamin C in it, so maybe it’s a similar flavoring? Haha, not much yogurt flavor, or blueberry for that matter.
Overall, it’s not nearly as scary as I thought it would be from the dry scent, with all the fruits and flowers and blargh, more like potpourri (sp?) than tea. I might use the rest of my sample to make some iced tea to see what that tastes like. Not a bad tisane, but not my favorite.
Thank you Dexter for sharing this tea with me. I know I had this before but I can’t seem to find a review. I used what was left for a cold brew and I think it was underleafed. In this cup, I’m getting mostly lemongrass and hibiscus. It was definitely juicy but the blueberry was overshadowed by the other elements. I believe the first time I had this was better as it was more balanced.
