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