Celestial Seasonings True Blueberry Infusion

The weather’s felt so much more like sum­mer than spring lately to drink tea. Thankfully though, the weather’s cooled down these past few days and I’ve been able to try this Celestial Seasonings True Blueberry tea.

This tea brews to a blood-red. It smells just like fresh blue­ber­ries when it’s brew­ing. Its taste has the sweet­ness of blue­ber­ries, but it doesn’t have quite the same punch I asso­ci­ate with fresh blue­ber­ries. It’s prob­ably too much to expect tea to taste like liquid fresh fruit, right? If I wanted that, I’d juice fresh fruit.

The tea does leave an astrin­gent sen­sa­tion or dry after­taste that I don’t usu­ally get unless I’ve steeped green tea for too long, though. But that aside, it tastes just like how I’d expect blue­berry tea to taste.

This box of Celestial Seasonings True Blueberry from the Fruit Tea Sampler con­tained 3 tea bags. It was packed in the Untied States of Australia and was pur­chased in Canberra, Australia in 2014 and gif­ted by fam­ily vis­it­ing New York, New York, the United States of America in 2016.
