Tea Forté Blueberry Merlot, voted "Best Herbal Tea in North America" by the World Tea Expo, is lush with the taste of organic succulent summer sweet blueberries, organic hibiscus and organic rosehips, for a naturally caffeine-free way to enjoy the day. This signature full-bodied blueberry tea is artisan crafted melding into a subtle union the health-boosting antioxidant properties of wild blueberries with Mediterranean sage to provide a slightly minty finish for this tart-sweet, savory, drink.

    Great Quantity of a Great Tea

    We have always loved the Blueberry Merlot, and realized that we could be saving by buying this much larger quantity for a lower per cup price. This tea blend is amenable to all tastes, even those with digestive sensitivity.

    Blueberry Bliss

    I was first introduced to Tea Forte at the Waldorf Orlando in November 2009. After our trip my husband called the hotel and asked what brand they served. He ordered a box of assorted Tea Forte teas to give me for Christmas that year and the next Christmas I received an electric Breville loose tea maker from him. After trying many flavors over the years, I settled on the Blueberry Merlot as my one and only. Still ordering today.

    Love this tea!!

    Love this tea, unfortunately the last time I placed an order for it, it was not available on your website. I could only find it on Amazon. For a company that relies on web sales that should never happen!!

    Best herbal tea ever!

    I bought a smaller tin of this tea in a boutique stall in a shopping plaza after tasting a cup at the stall, and fell in love with it! I was surprised, as I usually find herbal tea to be unappealing and even quite bland. This tea has a wonderful full fruity taste, somewhat tart (needs some sugar or honey) which one might not surmise from some of the ingredients (such as sage.) This tea has full-bodied flavor but is delightfully refreshing, I highly recommend it as an evening dessert tea.
