Show Description

The huckleberry is a flavorful wild berry and the flavor is paired here with a black tea.

Extra Info:

Indigenous to higher elevations thriving in an acid soil and a close relative of the blueberry, huckleberries are fruity and have a sweet robust tart flavor (when compared to its blueberry cousin). Generally not cultivated commercially, there is limited availability of huckleberries which probably accounts for part if its popularity.

The huckleberries are a favorite food of bears and are thus adventurous to pick. There is a certain amount of wilderness factor associated with the huckleberry which make them quite scrumptious and a true delicacy.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 4 minutes.

Ingredients:

black tea, blackberry leaves, cornflower petals, natural flavors,

Origin:

Blend

The Huckleberry flavor is very memorable and present in this tea although it also doesn't take away from the full flavor of the black tea which perfect! I actually find myself craving the sweet taste of this tea as I am writing this review.

After receiving many excellent teas from NM Tea Co., this is the first tea that has been severely disappointing. Huckleberries are a very sweet and delicious berry. I know; I grew up picking and eating them every August in Idaho. The flavor of this tea doesn't resemble huckleberry at all and is very bitter. In fact, there isn't even the slightest hint of any berry after steeping. The aroma of the dry tea resembles freeze-dried berry but not huckleberry. I'll use it to make sweet tea in the hopes that it is more drinkable.
