This blend is DELICIOUS! It is my favourite rooibos from Granville Island Tea Company. I can taste the orange and spices, even on the second and third cups. The orange flavour is a git different from normal orange. It is less bright and more like a dried citrus zest. I love orange flavour but avoid acidic teas, so this rooibos is perfect. It has the subtle sweetness that rooibos often has, which makes it great for iced tea.

First time I’ve ever thrown away a tea. It was just sitting in my stash smelling artificial and chemically. I was never going to drink it. I can’t seem to trade it away/sell it. Everyone I’ve given samples to has disliked it. I can’t even like it mixed with other teas or cold brewed. It can’t be saved.

So this is a “sipdown” in that I got to delete it from my spreadsheet, but I couldn’t bring myself to drink it down. I used the tin for my new fabulous milky green oolong. #noregrets

Tastes a little bit artificial. I’m not a huge fan of the strawberry flavour they used, but I do like that it isn’t acidic or tart. That being said, the flavour was apparent (but not strong), even on the second and third steep. This tea tisane was pretty good with milk and with honey added.

I still have 5 ounces of this (along with three other rooibos blends from Granville) that I’m never going to get through. I’m hoping I end up with a travelling teabox soon because I just have so much of it!

Overall, blueberry rooibos is a bit plain, but I like the sweet, woody rooibos and the dried blueberries. Nothing really stands out for me in this blend, but it makes for a good cup when you are craving rooibos.
