Product Description:

Whoooo-doggy! We got us an iced tea heah!

If you enjoyed our Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish, or the Blackberry Green or Blackberry Green Yerba Mate, you know that we don’t mess around when it comes to these two fruits. They are some of the best teas we’ve made in my humble opinion, so I figured, why not put them together?

Here’s our premium Indian black teas blended with real freeze-dried blueberries and blackberries, a little sweet and a little tart. Do NOT miss out on this blend, it is going to go fast, and I’m slowing down my production a bit because it’s summertime. (And some of our customers are acting like they ain’t never heard of iced tea!) =)

Taster’s Review:

Yum!  This is so good.

The berry flavor is INTENSE!  The blueberry hits the palate first and seems to be the strongest flavor during the sip, but the aftertaste is all about the blackberry.  These flavors are very true to the berry:  it tastes like plump, juicy blackberries and blueberries.

The black tea base is almost a little hidden amongst the powerful berry flavor, but it is there.  I find that the black tea flavor comes through more as the tea cools, though.  The first couple of sips – when the tea was piping hot – all I could taste was berry.  But now that the temperature of the tea has dropped to a drinkable temperature, I’m tasting more of the tea.

But this tea really tastes best when its iced!  Using my iced tea method that I’ve adopted for 52Teas Iced Tea Series, this tea really shines.  It is still a very berry tasting tea, and yet the black tea does come through with its brisk tone.  It isn’t bitter when it isn’t over-brewed, and it is only lightly astringent.  Pure, delicious refreshment – a real summertime treat!
