I wish Tazo would make this tea in their loose leaf line. Its one of my favorites by them, and one of my favorite bagged teas. It’s pretty light, with a nice fruity aroma. It’s easily oversteeped; good with milk and honey.

Can two berries become friends and even share an apartment? Why yes, because here you’ll find hints of huckleberries and crisp white cranberries bantering playfully, while watching their favorite reruns, and coexisting harmoniously within the soft, silky texture of this light and delicate tea.

One of my dear adopted sisters sent me a package recently, and threw in a bunch of teas for me to try, including this one. It smells amazing – the blueberry and cranberry definitely come through – and it tastes almost as good as it smells. The white tea is subtle but pairs nicely with the fruit flavors. Good stuff :-)
Taken with sugar.
Light flavor profile with the white tea being followed by a blue berry after taste. The is a floral current running through out that adds depth but there is also a slightly medicinal quality lurking in there some where. It’s very faint though. Just enough to make me keep thinking about the fact that it’s there but it’s not strong enough for me to figure out what’s causing it.
It might be an after effect of the blueberry flavoring…
I’m not throwing it out but I’m not buying it again either.
IF I go to Starbucks for tea (this is such a rare occurrence it could very well be considered to “never” occur), this is my go-to flavour. Their prices for a cup of hot water (essentially free) and a tea bag (essentially $0.50) is ridiculous, so I always feel like a chump having to pay for a cup of tea. A few months ago I saw Tazo teas were on sale at the local grocery store and figured: never again will I ever be a sucker and buy Tazo at Starbucks. So I bought a box. And since this is my go-to tea when I’m paying $2.00 for a cup, it should also be my go-to cup when I’m paying $0.10 a cup. Yes, it was a good sale. Yes, I regret only buying one box.
The flavour of the tea is…weird. It’s not OVERLY fruity or berry-y, but that’s probably at least partly because of the concept of “artificial flavours”. They don’t taste overly artificial, either. But that’s probably mostly because…it’s just not an overwhelming flavour at all. Yeah, I taste some berry “stuff” but that’s about it. I also don’t taste a lot of white tea; tastes more like a weak green to me. Is that what white tea is supposed to taste like? It doesn’t any other time, in my opinion. Maybe all the other times I’ve been having weird white tea. I dunno.
The verdict: I would buy another box if it was on sale like this one. I would not, however pay full price. And I’ll be damned if I ever buy a cup of this again at Starbucks.
First attempt of this tea hot. It has a hay-ness of white tea, but I can’t taste much flavor beyond that. Perhaps a lower temperature will work better.
I have tried this tea iced and it was really nice, but it seems like this isn’t that great as a hot beverage. I’ll try again.
This was one of my first forays into White Tea and it totally sold me on the idea. The blueberry style in here was very subtle and nice, and paired with white tea is a great, delicate combination. Tastes fantastic. I was sorry to hear that Starbucks pulled this eventually, I guess maybe it wasn’t selling that well? I thought it was fantastic and also made for great gifts.
I have certainly had some flavored teas with more present fruit flavoring that fit together a bit better, but this was definitely good.
