I was craving this tea tonight so made a mug full, added some agave nectar and milk and threw in a hand full of fresh blueberries. So satisfying and delicious. I really do love this tea! Raising my rating!

“Nom nom nom. Finally a second cup of this one. It’s not quite as blueberry-y as I remember, but I think a) there was more black tea in this cup and b) I may have raised my expectations for it....” Read full tasting note

Blueberries might just be the greatest fruit around – after all, they’re the star ingredient of North America’s favourite muffin. And hundreds of years before moms were making them into jams, jellies and cakes, blueberries were called “star berries” and revered for their healing powers. Another little known fact about blueberries is that they make for one great cup of tea – when you blend them with black tea, elderberries, cornflowers and stevia, it’s the perfect companion to your morning toast.
Ingredients: Organic: Fair Trade Certified black tea from Sri Lanka, blueberries, elderberries, pink cornflower petals, stevia. With organic and natural flavouring*.

This came as a sample from Marzipan. I’m thinking she has good taste in teas! Second sample from her and both were yummy! This taste like a blueberry muffin in liquid form! I’m digging it! But it’s wanting to make me get up and bake!! It’s breakfast in a cup! It has a nice rich blueberry taste. It’s not overpowering or weak. I don’t think it’s one I would search out to buy but if I needed to add a little something to an order for a discount- I’d throw this one in! Added bonus it’s Organic! I’m enjoying just holding the cup and breathing in blueberries! Yum! No bitterness. Exactly what you would think a blueberry tea would taste like. (Without an artificial aftertaste – this is the first David’s tea I’ve tasted. Sometimes with Teavana I get an artificial aftertaste)

I have’t been getting through the box as fast as I’d hoped. Stupid life. But I’m really glad I grabbed this tea just now because it is amazing. A bit of sugar and it’s liquid blueberry jam in my mouth. And we all know my love affair with blueberries. So good.
Definitely staying with me.
This tea was very mild. I don’t like black teas most of the time and this one wasn’t quite as bad but wasn’t all that good. I didn’t taste much blueberry and wish a jam I expected a sweetness to it. I tried it as a latte and plain tea it was similar both ways with my enjoyment of it. Bottom line this tea is okay.
So the stevia taste in this bothered me plain, but I did find a way that I really enjoy it. I brewed it with a little bit less water and then added some sugar and vanilla soymilk. Tastes like a blueberry muffin, yum! Still on the hunt for the perfect blueberry tea… :P
If I am being honest, I have never had blueberry jam. Blueberry muffins and other things like that, but never jam. Normally I reach for almost anything else first – raspberry, blackberry, snozzberry, you name it.
Prior to our trip to Chicago I looked through the highly rated David’s blends, and this one had a great rating, so I had decided ahead of time to pick some up in the store. I have been ignoring it for a few weeks, but today I decided I wanted something other than another straight black, so I pulled this out.
I was amazed at the amount of fruit in this! It was almost like an herbal, huge honking blueberries, little baby elderberries, pretty flower thingies. But with black tea! I also think this is my first tea that has stevia in it, not that I can really tell. It’s the first one that listed it on the ingredients anyway.
I like it. I made some for my daughter too and I feel like she will like it as well. It’s a teeny bit astringent on the back end, but that could have something to do with the recommended 5 minute steep time. I’m glad I didn’t go with their top of the range 7.
Sipdown. :) Although I guess I cheated, because there was that awkward amount between 1 and 2 cups left, so I just chucked it all in. Still counts though!
This tea is nice, but it would be much nicer without the stevia. I would much prefer it sweetened with sugar, I think. I probably won’t repurchase, unless I happen to be in a very blueberry mood…
This tea smelled and tasted pretty much exactly like blueberry jam…David’s Tea was not lying. I think they did a really good job making a blueberry tea and I did enjoy it. I had it with my peanut butter toast this morning, so kind of a PB&J moment. That being said, although it was tasty and pretty much as expected based on the description, it did not blow my socks off. This could be because I don’t have a strong affinity for blueberry.
Thanks Virginia for the sample!
