I’ve been ‘sitting on this’ review for a while. Not because I didn’t LOVE the tea – because I clearly DID – it’s because I didn’t want to throw the empty bag away. Seriously!
Cassis & Blueberry from Lupicia is a heavily flavored black tea. It’s flavored with Blueberry and Cassis…in case you don’t know what Cassis is…it’s usually a liquor made from black currants.
This flavored black tea is sweet and tart and my FAVORITE PART is that the sweet and tart come from the blueberry and currants and NOT hibiscus! Woot! NO hibiscus! I’ll say it again…NO HIBISCUS!
You can genuinely taste the fruity flavor. But with the black tea base it’s like the BEST of both worlds…a true black tea with yummy fruit. It’s not overly tart – just the right amount of tart. The tart that is present is counteracted nicely by the sweet. The flavor ratios are perfect!
This fruit flavored black tea is right up my alley…can’t they all be like this? I guess not…but I’m glad this one is! Cassis & Blueberry from Lupicia is a HIT with me! YUM!
And just for our readers, mention SororiTea Sisters when you check out from Lupicia and they will throw in a special treat!
