Rescue experts say that if you ever get separated from your party while hiking through the woods, your best bet is to stay where you are. You probably shouldn't eat the berries you find there, either. But, as long as you've got a cup of Forest Berries Black tea, you'll have nothing to worry about. Brisk Ceylon black tea, savory ripe summer berries create a tea with a comforting, sweet earthy aroma and deeply fruity flavor and finish. Steep at 212°F for 3 minutes

      Stong berry flavor from the dry tea leaves. I steeped at 190°F x 2 minutes, then sweetened with a tiny bit of raw sugar to bring the fruit flavor forward. Delicious sipped hot, but the berry flavor becomes stronger as it cools so it would make a great iced tea. Stands up well to a second steep.

      Delightful fruity aroma right out of the bag. Little pieces of dried fruit and a couple tiny raspberry leaves in the mix. When brewed it was a little bitter, but some stevia mellowed it out and it had a nice strawberry flavor to it.

      Mild, unspecific berry flavor. The black tea had a nice flavor but was too astringent for me.

      There's a mild berry taste, but there's also something astringent to this, I can't put my finger on it. It's not a bad tea, I drank the whole sample bag, but it's not my favorite. I wish it tasted more like berries.

      It was okay. The berry taste was very subtle, bordering on weak. I think if the berry was played up I'd like it more, but it just seemed a bit boring to me.

      Tried it for iced tea. Not bad, but a little bland for my tastes.

      Yes! I have finally found my go-to berry tea from Adagio! I have tried the blueberry and the blackberry and have been sort of disappointed in how artificial they taste, and those are normally my very favorite flavors. This tea is perfect - it has an AMAZING berry flavor that is not as artificial as the others. It's still slightly artificial tasting, but not cough syrup level artificial. I will definitely be buying more of this!

      This is my go-to morning tea. Sometimes I mix it with a bit of chocolate tea (delicious). It’s got enough of a punch to be morning tea, and yet the flavor is somehow gentle at the same time. The berries are just right without overpowering the black tea.

      This tea was just 'ok'. It smelled good in while brewing but didn't make much of a positive impression overall.

      Aroma of the tea was sweet and berry filled, but the actual tea was a disaster. It’s bitter and similar to cough syrup. Might be fine iced or if steeped for less than the recommended time.

      The tea is a little bitter, but not enough to distract from the sweetness of the berry flavor

      Big disapointment on this one. I love blends with this tea, but on its own, it's got a nasty aftertaste and lackluster flavor.

      Nice berry flavor, a little tart but it goes well with the tea

      This tea smells so good! I'm normally not the biggest fan of black teas, but I love this one. It has a really nice berry flavor.

      I absolutely love this one. Very nice after taste. The berries are not too strong. Pleasant.

      Love this tea. Nice strongish berry flavor with black tea.
