    Love the hint of blueberries and it is wonderful with a summer fruit salad. I also made this tea hot just to see how well the flavor would carry over and it'll be a refreshing option in the winter months. The blueberry flavor will remind me of summer and having it hot will keep me warm on the winter days. Great tea year round!

    Not my favorite

    This tea was a little bitter for me but still enjoyed it. Would nicely balance a fruit desert.

    I had this tea at a restaurant and loved it - it was what introduced me to the Tea Forte line and it is still our family favorite - not too sweet and not too floral - perfect

    I have autoimmune issues and this tea was a game changer. Recommended to a friend who also has fibromyalgia. Mayo Clinic is in Scottsdale. You should contact them. I have weird allergies and have to stick to alternative medicine. Hope to order more soon!

    We're gonna' need a bigger pitcher!

    This fabulous, fresh tea is perfect iced on a summer day. I sweeten it with a little agave for iced tea. It doesn't last long! My whole family loves it. In fact, our tea pitcher empties very quickly. It's fantastic!
