Republic of Tea Blueberry Green Tea Review

If Blueberries Are Your Thing...You'll Like This Tea

Summary : This is a pleasant, non-bitter, blueberry flavored green tea that is loaded with antioxidants. If you adore all things blueberries, this tea has your name on it.

Review : A good green tea is great. But, I'll let you in on a little secret. All too many of them have a grassy flavor to them, even some of the so-called premium green teas. Now, a grassy flavor is just fine and dandy if either grass is your thing or you enjoy eating what horses do. But for the rest of us, a tea that tastes like grass isn't really that appealing.

As such, while I found myself in the mood for a green tea tonight, I just simply could not bring myself to sample a straight green tea...as I just didn't want to risk nibbling on anything that might have a grassy flavor to it.

So, I dug through my rather large tea sample assortments and the first bagged green tea to show itself was a blueberry green tea from the Republic of Tea. Blueberries, huh? Since I never had a blueberry green tea before, I figured it was worth a try.

This blueberry green tea from the Republic of Tea contains the following ingredients : Fine China green tea leaves, natural blueberry flavor and blueberry bits.

Here is how the Republic of Tea describes this tea : "This healthy tea offers the experience of freshly plucked green tea and juicy, succulent blueberries. Green tea contains powerful antioxidants associated with the prevention of heart disease and cancer. In addition, the USDA Human Nutrition Center ranked blueberries #1 in antioxidant activity, helping to promote anti-aging and disease prevention."

I'll confess...this tea surprised me. I'm not exactly a blueberry lover, particularly blueberries right off the vine. I'm more of a huckleberry person, which probably stems from living up in Montana for so many years.

The aroma of the tea was of moderate strength, which really isn't surprising since it is a bagged tea and blueberries aren't known as having the most potent of fragrances. But, the aroma that there was said it all...blueberries!

Despite not being a blueberry fanatic, I found this tea quite enjoyable, rather surprisingly. The flavor of the tea was ALL blueberry. But happily, for someone who doesn't get a thrill out of raw blueberries, the flavor was of just moderate strength. And thankfully, the tea had absolutely zero bitterness. And best of all, there was no taste of grass either.

So, if blueberries are your thing, this tea is definitely worth a try. It nicely combines a non-grassy green tea flavor with blueberries, producing a non-bitter and very flavorful tea.

Recommendation : Yes. Blueberry lovers will adore this tea, all the more so since it is a green tea. Indeed, people searching for a tea with lots of anti-oxidants will love this tea...since it combines blueberries (which have a lot of anti-oxidants) with green tea (which also has lots of anti-oxidants). However, if you don't like blueberries, then this tea is definitely not for you.
