I tried this is the DA sampler pack and couldn't wait to buy a tin! Smooth, fruity and absolutely delicious. Adding milk wasn't a problem as even though it was fruity, it wasn't acidic. Delightful!

Perfect iced

I can honestly say that I can't go a day without drinking this tea. I make it iced, by the pitcher, and every evening the pitcher is empty. Luckily, I have the tea on auto-ship, so I never have to worry about running out! I like to brew a pitcher with 6 bags of the brambleberry and 2 bags of the blueberry black. That is an excellent berry blend for summer or year round!

I can taste the berries

I wanted to try this tea because so many berry teas leave you wondering where the berries are. I enjoy the flavor both hot and cold

Much more than a novelty

Ok, there is no doubt it caught my attention to see Mr. and Mrs. Bates on the container. So, I thought, what the heck, why not. What I found was a wonderful and tasty delight. It is a good combination of fruity and gentle tea. I have been using it in my Arnold Palmer's and it has become a favorite. You really should give it a try.
