      Lovely! A fruity, woodsy tea that manages to be both rich and light at the same time.

      Absolutely wonderful tea. The flavours blend beautifully. A cup of joy

      This was such a nice surprise. I never “drank” sage before and the whole mix with the other fruits made for a delicious blend.

      I really like this tea! Very berry forward with some savory sage notes. Its a little weird at first, but the more I drink it, the more I like it!

      Love this tea - it tastes wonderful cold, and even better - like blackberry pie - with cream and sweetener!

    • 

      Steeped at 212F for 5 minutes. This is quite berry forward with a nice, mellow sage toward the end of each sip. It has a natural sweetness that I quite enjoy. I will certainly be reordering this!

      This is one of my absolute favorite iced teas. The blackberry and sage work perfectly together and create an outstanding flavor. The profile of the oolong is there and builds a nice base.

      I had such high hopes for this tea. I really did! I'm a fan of the flavors as individuals but this tea just did NOT work for me. It tastes less like blackberry and more like sage tea with other flavors added in such a way that it muddies the taste of the tea in general.

    • 

      Strange but delectable! The oolong base provides the perfect structure for an almost perfumed, relaxing tea. The sage is unexpected but tones down the astringency of the berry.

    • 

      Absolutely delicious. I never would have thought sage would have gone so well with oolong. The berry adds a touch of sweetness to this, making for a well rounded, enjoyable drink.

    • 

      Hearty meets fruity in this tea! The balance of the hearty sage, fruit and earthy oolong come together to create a perfect blend. Very good tea.

    • 

      This is one of my favorites! The blackberry is more pronounced than the sage and I love the combination. It's really smooth and a nice mix of sweet and savory or earthy. I just love this one!

      Brewed at 190F for 4 minutes with rock sugar added

      While in the midst of brewing and letting the final product cool, I completely forgot that sage is a big part of this blend. Upon sipping, I had a split second of "oh, nice fruit". and then the sage smacked me like a semi. I tried to give this tea a fair shot, but I just can't take the sage flavor being in there. It is very alarming to my taste buds and makes me want to abort mission. Definitely a no from me.

    • 

      I'm pleasantly surprised by how well the save works in the tea. Also of note, the flavor is definitely "berry" rather than the generic "fruity" I was afraid of getting.

      

      Love this tea SO much! Blackberry is one of my favorite flavors anyway, but the sage adds an unexpected and wonderful refreshing flavor. The dry leaves smell heavenly and herbally, and it seems like the brewed tea has equal proportions of berry and sage - one doesn't overpower the other. I was able to get two solid steeps out of this - I did one hot and one cold, and they were both wonderful. Oolong is more delicate than Ceylon, but I think that's perfect for this particular flavor of tea.

    • 

      The dry tea has a strong berry scent. Once steeped the sage becomes the most prominent scent; strong and herbal.

      Sage is all I could taste when the tea was still at it's hottest. The more it cooled the more the berry flavors came to the front. The sage flavor didn't go away, but it mingled with the berry, a very pleasing blend.

      On the second steep the berry flavors were the most prominent, even when hot. For the third steep the berry flavor drops out almost completely and you're left with jus a sage oolong. The sage is not as strong as the first steep of course, so it's still a nice cuppa if you're one for herbal flavors.

      Steeped (1) 190F 4min, (2) 200F 4min, (3) 200F 4min

      Very nice blend. Lightly fruity, with sage being the predominant flavor along with the tea.

    • 

      The sage comes through as a pleasant savory flavor, and the fruity notes compliment it nicely. I wouldn't have been able to tell it was an oolong base or that the fruit was suppose to be blackberry, but it all somehow works together to be a delicious cup of tea. You must like sage, as it is forefront in smell and taste. I enjoy it plain, but a little rock sugar does a nice job of enhancing the flavors.

      Very interesting! I felt the sage could have been a bit stronger, but it was quite tasty.

      

      The sage flavor was a b it overpowering for me and the blackberry did not really come through. It kind of felt like drinking liquid stuffing because the sage was so strong. I definitely preferred the second steeping of this tea as the sage flavor was not as strong.

    • 

      surprisingly good. not usually a fan of sage in tea, but enjoyed this blend

    • 

      I did not care for this tea. There is something about it, could be the sage, that makes it taste muddled and the blackberry does not come through for me.

    • 

      the berry favor was every strong and sweeter then i thought it would even though i put a teaspoon of surge cane into the tea

      I loved this one! After I opened my sample pouch, I drank it literally everyday until it was gone because I liked it so much. It feels very Summer into Fall to me. The sage brings a mellow herbal sweetness, the berry brings a nice light (but deep flavored) fruit juiciness, and the oolong is very smooth in this blend.

    • 

      I mean the tea is good but I just can't stand sage in my tea. It smells a little like perfume and that bothers me

    • 

      Sage is kinda weird but the blackberry is good! Tastes better when eating blackberries with it

    • 

      Very yummy. Did not think I would like sage in my tea but it goes amazingly well with blueberry

      Very yummy. One of my favorites because of the uniqueness and balance.

      Sage is a little strange in tea. I liked the flavor, but couldn't get over the sage

    • 

      the overall flavor is good but I couldn't get a ton of the blackberry.

    • 

      Blackberry and sage pair wonderfully with the oolong! I typically dont mind fruity teas but I adore this one!

      I don't usually order fruit teas, but I really enjoyed this one. A pinch of sugar brings out the blackberry a bit, and the sage is a lovely balance to the fruit flavor.

      I thought this tea tasted pretty good. The flavors weren't too strong and they seemed to balance well.

      Very earth oolonng tea. The blackberry adds a nice touch to it.

      Blackberry is quickly becoming my favorite fruit tea. The sage is pronounced (though not overly so) in this one, which may make a difference in whether you like it or not. I love how smoothly his one goes down--the right blend of oolong and herbal. If you're a fan of blackberry teas, give it a try!

    • 

      This tea smells and tastes delicious! Fruity and herbal, with all the good qualities of an oolong

    • 

      This oolong does have a strong taste of sage or herbs, but the blackberry flavor is present and the combination is very nice. It's not my all-time favorite oolong, but if you are a blackberry and sage fan, you will enjoy this one!

    • 

      Nice sample I got. Good flavors, sometimes a little overpowering.

    • 

      This one has a strong herbal smell when dry, but the fruity taste comes out a lot more in the tea. It's an interesting flavor combination
