Yikes. While this tea looks beautiful, and smells nice and tart, all I can taste is stevia. It’s overwhelming and undrinkable. Such a shame…I wish DT would stop adding stevia to their teas.

Want to see a magic trick? Add a squeeze of lemon to this juicy blue raspberry blend and watch it go from indigo to violet – no enchantments or pixie dust needed. The secret ingredient? Butterfly pea flower – a unique plant from Southeast Asia that turns tea blue naturally thanks to its bright azure petals. Spritz in some lemon and a drizzle of honey for the ultimate nightcap. Or serve it iced for a refreshing berry-packed tonic. With its fun colour-changing powers, it’s like a mood ring in your mug.
Currants, apples (apples, sulfites), rosehips, butterfly pea flowers, raspberries, blackberries, stevia extract, natural kiwi, blackberry and bilberry flavouring.

Another tea from my 24 More Sleeps advent calendar and I LOVEEE it. It’s so sweet but it only lasts for like the first second, I wish the taste lasted longer. I don’t even know how to explain it. Y’all I am so not a profesh tea reviewer clearly. I know I like it and I would buy it again.
Home – 8:00 PM
So I went to the Texas Craft Brewers Festival today, and had a great time. There was a really phenomenal Earl Grey Sour beer that I loved! All in all, a day well spent. But I am completely exhausted, partly from the activity and partly from the beer (which always makes me sleepy).
This tisane… Really it’s a guilty pleasure sort of situation! It’s quite sweet and there’s no tea in it, which usually doesn’t bode well for me. But I’m somehow so charmed by the lovely indigo color and the sweet, juicy berry flavor. Blueberry happens to be one of my very favorite flavors, and I find that to be the primary note here. Maybe a bit of blue raspberry as well.
So when I want something sweet (and caffeine-free), I find this is a nice one to keep around. Even if I find myself a bit embarrassed by it! XD

So I was very excited about this tea tonight. I had an awesome plan to get a cool timelapse video of this tea steeping and then the color changing aspect when combined with lemon juice. However, when I finished the video I was not that impressed with it. So I brewed the leaves again to get before and after pics of the color changing process. So much work to do something different for the #365daysoftea challenge.
After all that, I had 2 cups of this tea to drink and tbh both got dumped. The stevia was just way too much for me. The resteep was actually more tolerable than the first steep, probably since the first mug got the brunt of the stevia, yet both were just too sweet. I have too much tea to drink stuff I don’t like even a little, even when it is pretty.
I picked some of this up when the Halloween collection came out with the Sorcer’s set. The set comes with a clear mug with ghosts on it, a skinny tin of this tea, and a black perfect spoon. I like this one iced. The bright blue colour it steeps at is beautiful and I actually prefer the taste of the tea without the colour changing lemon juice added. Is it my absolute favourite of all time? No. Will I be buying tons to keep on hand? No. It’s a nice fruity once in a while kind of tea to me.
The colours in this tea are amazing. The ingredients all sound really good and like something I would like. But the added sweetener completely ruined it for me, not only did it look like a super artificial sugary drink, it tasted like one too. I couldn’t even finish my cup.
