Definitely taste blueberries, not sweet but tart. I added vanilla creamer and a teaspoon of honey and it was a delight.

A bright blend of fruit flavors takes this tea to a whole new level of refreshment and thirst-quenching enjoyment. Pleasingly tart by itself or add a bit of sugar for a different taste treat. Try it iced, too – delicious!
The ingredients include Blueberry powder (not whole blueberries) and Acai Powder (neither of these were not on the ingredient data base).

So, I’ve opened up my first tab, at this not so little coffee shop. There is a $5 minimum on credit/debit purchases so I couldn’t get just one tea bag. I must be close to one of the colleges as there are plenty of people here after seven to satisfy my love of people watching.
I was saddened to see, of course after I plopped the tea bag in my mug and poured the water over, that blueberry flavor was the SIXTH item in the ingredient list.
These stash teas are okay but I’m finding myself thinking that I should have brewed something in a tumbler and had the boyfriend drop me at a library instead. These are plain compared to most tea I have at home. These are sort of like flavored water to me for some reason. They are fine to drink in a setting like this but I doubt I will purchase them for my stash.
hibiscus, oh dear.
i can see how it’s been used to great effect to create the illusion of blueberry, along with the help of orange peel, lemongrass, rosehips, açai berry, blackcurrant, citric acid, and licorice (powder).
tart comes to mind! very tart. this tastes pretty much like Celestial Seasonings True Blueberry. i remember loving that one initially (which was years ago) because i loved blueberry flavors and still do. somehow, the mix of ingredients suddenly seemed too tart and artificial for my tastes. i feel that with this tea, too.
but i’m happy with the inclusion of superfruit(s), namely açai & other berry extracts.
i’ll treat this as a medicinal/preventative/herbal tisane with a somewhat unpleasant, but necessary tang.
here’s hoping for health!
on the positive side, the tea bag smells wonderful & i think the bright blue packet is quite fitting for the ultra fruity blueberry persona of the dry leaf.
ETA: if you ask me, the best iteration of Blueberry i’ve ever tasted has got to be Harney & Sons Paris, as well as their Blackcurrant. in fact, my impression of blueberry (at least in flavored things) is probably more ‘blackcurrant’ than actual blueberry. Blackcurrant is pretty amazing, and seemingly more ‘blueberry’ given my conflation of the two!
