I don't care for this tea myself, but my husband drinks it every night and just can't be without it (we purchase it by the pound). It is quite tart. Importantly for my husband, this blend doesn't have licorice root (which he can't have because of his blood pressure).
This tea is beautiful. I was drawn in by the name - Blueberry Merlot. I love to have a tea with rosehips and hibiscus so I was sure I would love this tea. On my first try, I knew this tea would be a staple in my pantry. The subtle spice with the tart rosehips and hibiscus is heavenly. The fact that I actually pour merlot over my bowl of frozen blueberries also drew me to this tea. Perhaps I will prepare a cup, let it cool, and pour an ounce or 2 over my frozen blueberry dessert. Um. I may also decide to prepare this tea in a double walled glass cup. It is so visually lovely. At the moment I prepare it in my KATI Steaming Cup - Bleu.
I was given a gift of Tea Forte tea sampler and fell in love with the African Solstice, when I went to order a jar of it, I wanted to try the blueberry merlot and now can not drink any other tea because none can compare. The blend is a bit sweet but very subtle.
