Recent Tasting Notes
While the smell was promising, it did not live up in flavor. I paid $1.00 for it (from Dollar Tree) and it tastes like it.
I’ve had low priced teas surprise me, but this wasn’t one of them. I didn’t find it to be an undrinkable tea, but it is not something I’d buy again.
I’m going to play around with temperature and steep times to see if anything changes and, if so, I’ll edit my review. I may try a cold brew of this, as well.
EDIT TO UPDATE:
I’ve tried this tea at various temperatures and steep times, from 175 degrees to 212 degrees, and from 3 minutes to upwards of 6-7 minutes and have noticed no significant increase in flavor.
Additionally, I did a cold brew two different times with this tea, once as a stand alone, and once mixed with another tea I used as a base. While not undrinkable the flavor was uninspiring. I wouldn’t have known I was drinking a blueberry flavored tea had I not brewed it myself.
I won’t be purchasing this one again.
