Ever since my favorite blueberry flavored tea was discontinued I have been on the lookout for a good replacement. I was very excited to find Trader Joe’s Blueberry Green Tea, because I have always been a fan of their teas. This tea not only has blueberry flavoring, but also dried blueberry pieces.
Trader Joe’s describes this tea as:
We’ve paired the ever-popular green tea with blueberries, another antioxidant powerhouse. The sweetness of blueberries and the grassy green tea taste produce a well rounded brew.
This is definitely a green tea, which I should have guessed when I read the description that said it had a “grassy” flavor. Grassy is usually not a good thing for me. But the tea tastes just like a green tea, with a very subtle blueberry undertone. The blueberry taste is really only hinted at, but it adds a nice sweetness to the green tea. The green tea is quite earthy tasting, in a good way, and isn’t too bitter or overpowering. I was really looking for a good blueberry tea, and this doesn’t fit the bill, but taken as a green tea, it is actually quite nice.
