From DAVIDsTEA

Sweet, tangy and totally addictive – is there anything more delicious than a perfectly ripe blackberry? Not that we can think of. And this fruity tisane captures that fresh-off-the-bush blackberry flavour to a T. Add in a rich swirl of creamy yogurt and you have the ultimate berries and cream treat. The best part? It’s caffeine-free and makes an amazing iced tea kids will love. With a blend this cool, that summer heat doesn’t a chance.

Ingredients: Apple, papaya (papaya, sugar), pineapple (pineapple, sugar), rosehip shells, hibiscus, sweet blackberry leaves, blackberries, artificial blackberry, red fruit and boysenberry flavouring.

Price per 50g: $7.98

Thanks again for that awesome package of teas you sent a while back, TreeGal! I’m not sure what this blend is going for — blizzard as in like a milkshake? The description mentions yogurt but there doesn’t seem to be a yogurt component to the tea. I have no idea. I really like blackberries but this tastes more like a berry vitamin. I’m not sure if that is due to the splenda or the blackberry leaves. I wish more of the fruit flavor was apparent in the cup. It tastes like blackberry, just more like a kids chewable vitamin sort of berry. I’m sure my parameters could be adjusted to result in a better flavor… Always happy to try a tea anyway!

I really enjoyed this fruity tea. The blackberry is really nice, and it must be the blackberry leaves that gives it a little bit of pop. I got this as a sample in my advent calendar, after trying it I KNOW it will make a good caffeine free summer tea. I tried it hot, I’ve yet to try it cold!

Very fruity and blackberry (not just generically fruity), which is nice. I’m often underwhelmed by things that are supposed to have blackberry. However, there is something in there that makes it sickly sweet to me. VariaTEA mentioned blackberry leaves, I don’t know if that’s what it is, but it’s just like a sugar bomb of grossness to me, and I don’t usually mind sweet. It is very flavorful, and if it wasn’t for that sweetness, I think I’d love this one – but as it is, it kind of makes me gag. I might try mixing it with some plain black tea to see if I can make a really blackberry black tea…then again, I may not bother, lol.

I had a similar experience with Moringa Mermaid. There’s no stevia in it but between the candied fruit and the blackberry leaves, it came out so sweet. Blech.

I find blackberry leaves can have a very, very sweet flavour.

Hmm this one smells and tastes a lot like their raspberry cream pie flavor. You definitely get the sense of berry flavoring, but without the sourness that some other brands bring. Very light and sweet. They’re definitely good at making this type of blend if this is the sort of thing you want. I like it, but as with most of their blends, likely wouldn’t repurchase.

I had this one last night iced and with a little bit of honey (a right prediction it could use some extra sweetness). I personally really liked it. It wasn’t severely lacking in any flavour. It tasted like candy, though, not blackberries. Blackberry bushes are very common where I live and this tea didn’t capture the same elements I was hoping, but it was definitely done better than I’ve experienced before with blackberry flavours. It was tangy and sweet, very much like an almost too ripe blackberry off the bush. And that’s not to say I added too much honey. The flavours fit well together, it was just a little lacklustre for my taste. All this considered, I didn’t end up finishing the drink, but perhaps when the right hot day comes I may.

I just got some of this so that’s too bad. Did you drink it hot or iced?

I had stopped into a DT’s shop for a sample and they were serving it iced. I find that in store samples vary, sometimes greatly, from what happens at home with your own brewing devices, so it might just be a win. Looking forward to hearing what you think. It sounds like it might have potential.

I’ve been putting off making it since I had surgery on Wednesday and not up to doing much but it’s still hot today so today might be the day. I cold brew so maybe that will help?

Hope your recovery is swift and easy. Both ways might just be stellar when made at home.

I tried 4 of DAVIDsTEA’s newer (newish) iced teas all in one week, and I wasn’t really impressed with any of them. I didn’t add any sugar, steeped the tea as instructed, and then poured it over a cup of ice. After a fair number of sips, I added lemonade “to taste” – half my cup ended up as lemonade.

This one is okay. Just okay. It does have a strong blackberry flavour and I’m not the biggest fan of blackberries. I found mixing it with other teas was helpful to make the blackberries less overwhelming. I won’t be buying any more of this one but it was drinkable.

Tastes so much like a berry Kool-Aid. I like this best iced, when it reminds me of my childhood summers and pitchers of Kool-Aid in the fridge. It’s fun and pleasant, but I probably wouldn’t repurchase it or drink this too much (same way I never drink Kool-Aid anymore). It doesn’t have a very complex or interesting taste, if that makes sense, but it’s good for what it is, which is a sweet & straightforward berry tea. I don’t find it to be sour at all. I’d recommend if you’re into fruit teas or looking for something pleasant and caffeine free to ice.
