Looking to share something different with your tea friends? Surprise your friends by serving our refreshingly delicious Blackberry black tea. Bright, citrusy Ceylon black tea infused with sweetly tart blackberries is an adventure for your palate. Pleasantly sweet and bakey aroma, like fresh berry scones, floral-fruity aroma and slightly dry finish. Perfect hot or iced and an easy tea to blend with others, too. Steep at 212°F for 3 minutes

      If I know anything to be true, it's that this blend tastes overwhelmingly like blackberry! There is no false advertising to be found here. One note I have is that my cup was very astringent when cool. If you're fine with that then it's a great tea otherwise

      I am really digging this flavor! It is a great flavor that is not artificial at all and really comes alive with the sugar. It has a strong blackberry flavor I can actually taste and the smell is great as well.

      Rich, fruity aroma from the tea leaves when opened. I steeped at 190°F x 2 minutes to avoid any bitterness from the tea. The blackberry flavor is light, but blends well with the tea flavor. I added a little sweetener, thinking it would make the flavor pop. But I actually enjoyed it better unsweetened. Good sipped hot. I think it would also be delicious iced.

      Delicious black tea with lovely aroma of ripe blackberries. Smooth and sweet and fruity.

      One of my favorite morning teas. It's less of a fresh blackberry taste and more of a blackberry jam taste, I haven't tried it iced yet, but I imagine it'd be good.

      Blackberry is one of my favorite flavors, so I was very eager to try this. I bought it to drink on its own and mix with other things.

      Unfortunately, like the blueberry tea, this tastes and smells very artificial. I will continue to drink it but probably will not buy another bag.

      This tea definitely has a tartness to it. I highly recommend adding a sweetener to balance out the tartness.

      This one smelled great and tasted good. I over steeped mine a bit, may have to get a sample bag and try again.

      I am realizing I am not a blackberry person. Had this one last night and I just couldn’t enjoy it. The blackberry scent came through, but the tea itself just didn’t work for me.

      With a little sweetner, this reminds me of blackberry syrup. Yum!

      Not my favourite. It has an astringent taste. I would go for the blackberry sage oolong over this one.

      I personally hate this. It leaves a bitter medicinal aftertaste in my mouth and no amount of cream or sweetener helps.

      Would have preferred the taste of blackberry to be stronger, but it was pretty good.

      This tea definitely has a strong blackberry flavor and scent, but can get too bitter really quickly so it's not very forgiving with the steeping time. It's nice with some sugar, or even blended with the Adagio vanilla and/or cream flavored black teas to round out the flavor. My favorite way to make it was cold brewed, it made it much smoother and pulled out some of the natural sweetness.

      All of the wonderful flavors of fruits with none of the astringency issues

      A very nice tea, with a perfect flavor balance with the berry and the black tea. It gives it an almost sweetness that's very enjoyable.

      There's nothing standard about this standalone blackberry tea. This has quickly become my favorite flavor on the market, and enjoying it in its purest form is a delight. It's aromatic, fruity, and filling. The flavorful aroma lingers in the glass long after the final sip. Also high in caffeine, which makes it the perfect cupful to start the day with.
