From Celestial Seasonings

Some tastes are so familiar that just hearing their name brings their flavor to mind – like True Blueberry, whose simple, fruity flavor is best described as ‘tasting blue.’ The wild blueberries we chose for this blend are very high in antioxidants and have overtones of purple grapes, providing a deeper berry flavor than their farmed cousins. Try it on ice!

Hibiscus, rosehips, orange peel, natural blueberry flavor with other natural flavors (contains soy lecithin), blackberry leaves, wild blueberries and blueberry leaves

Easy peasy iced tea while I’m away from home. Even as I branch out to more and more loose tea I still go back to these for something simple that I know I can’t mess up.
True Blueberry is true to it’s name. I don’t pick up a huge amount of the hibiscus or other ingredients, and it’s not too tart.

Mmm…certainly liking this little blue wonder this evening. :) I needed a decaffeinated soother tonight, and this is doing it for me!

Part of the sampler box from CS. I brewed for 10 minutes.

It’s not strongly hibiscus, despite it’s being listed as the first ingredient. I’m getting a definite blueberry taste, with just a hint of the rosehips and hibiscus. Definitely lives up to its name. Very warm and comforting.

I’m not sure I’ll run out and buy it immediately (especially considering the current state of my tea cabinet), but I wouldn’t hesitate to pick this one up again.

Sipping down the last of this iced~

I think I like herbal’s iced the best. Especially the cheap bagged kind. This is just like delicious blueberry juice only without the calories. Its best sweetened with a touch of honey. Love this stuff, and definitely doing to be getting more once I finish off some of my other teas. It’ll probably make good popsicles when it gets hot. =D

Another tea that needs no work, I seem to like that. This smells like it is the juice of blueberries in your mug! The taste is not that far off, it taste like blueberries juiced but a little watered down. Quite enjoyed it!

I love that tea…don’t get attached to that box of it, since it’s mine.

Got a sample box and opened the True Blueberry pouch today. At this hour I need to drink something caffeine free.

It smells like blueberries. And It tastes like blueberry, and other fruits and berries. I add a little sugar to this tea to help bring out the berry flavor even more.

I think I saw on the packet something about being new and improved with more berry taste, and it has been improved. I remember trying this same tea years ago and not liking it because it didn’t taste like blueberries. Good going Celestial Seasonings.

I’m a huge fan of Celestial Seasonings and their always-wonderful tea. Huge fan. I was recently in Target (my second home) when I noticed the company’s Fruit Tea Sampler. Upon examination, I realized that the sampler contained a few teas I hadn’t tried before. Gasp.

I recently reviewed one of the other teas in the sampler, the Raspberry Zinger. I love it muchly, and trust me, the True Blueberry is just as good. It doesn’t taste sugary, but it has a SLIGHT sweetness to it that makes it almost like dessert, or reminiscent of a blueberry yogurt flavor. As an herbal tea, it’s caffeine-free, and the ingredients are “hibiscus, rosehips, orange peel, natural blueberry flavor with other natural flavors (contains soy lecithin), blackberry leaves, wild blueberries and blueberry leaves”. The word blueberry is mentioned three times just in the ingredient list, so that’s a good thing, right?

Wild blueberries (that just sounds exotic) are used in the tea, and it’s no secret how good blueberries are for your body. There’s almost an grape-like flavor to these blueberries. I’ve tried the tea cold and it’s great that way, but it’s even better hot, like a warm slice of blueberry pie. Just pour boiling (or almost-boiling) water over a bag and steep for around 4-5 minutes.

Anyway, it’s hard to express in words what truly should be expressed through taste, so try this tea, and try it soon!

If there’s one thing I can say for sure about Celestial Seasonings’ fruit teas, it’s that they’re easy. Hot, iced, cold brewed; teabag out after a few minutes or a few days; they’re impossible to ruin. With that comes a simple and sometimes dull taste, yes, but it’s not a bad deal overall. I got a variety box and I’m tempted to pick up a full box of the blueberry… because sometimes you just want blueberries, you know?

It’s ok. I’m using up what I have, and not buying more.

This is a teabag. I mostly smell the blueberry. I steeped it up. The taste a sweet slighty tart blueberry and the other ingredients do not make this too tart. I thought this was good.
