The more I try this tea the more I can taste the sweet apple over the beetroot and the more I find myself liking it….even loving it. This one has definitely grown on me.

There aren’t actually all that many fruit teas I’ve liked all that much recently, so this one came as a rather pleasant surprise. I was actually thinking I wouldn’t like it…real beetroot isn’t something I enjoy eating, so I wasn’t all that sold on the idea of it in tea. It’s actually surprisingly nice, though.
There’s quite a lot of hibiscus here, I think, although they’re fairly unavoidable in this kind of blend. It hasn’t made this one too sour, though…possibly the earthiness of the beetroot has helped to balance out some of the tartness. The other fruit flavours are also remarkably prominent. I can taste orange and lemon, and they add a pleasantly citrussy overtone to what would otherwise be a fairly conventional fruit tea. The apple is the only thing that’s a little lost, although it might be helping out the beetroot in its fight against the hibiscus a little. Either way, this is a genuinely interesting and fairly unqiue autumn/winter tea. I’m glad I’ve got a full bag in my stash, because I can see myself drinking this well into the new year. Well done, Bluebird!
I admit I had my doubts when ordering this tea, but it definitely is a great find. Not so fond of beetroot (I like it, but in small doses ;-) ), but fascinated by the comments…and this is another Great Taste Award in UK.
The judges say : ‘A true, earthy beetroot nose followed up by an inspired combination of ingredients that gives you a wonderful twist on borscht – and what could be more welcoming or comforting – except for a shot of vodka added to it. Fantastic outdoor winter drink – but why bother going outdoors? Original and well worth rewarding.’
Indeed, it starts off with a beetroot rich nose, but in mouth the blend is far more balanced, and I think it also makes a wonderful and refreshing summer time drink!
I’m really sad about the hibiscus in this blend, because I’m enjoying the balance between the earthiness of the beetroot and the bright, zesty citrus. Unfortunately, that tart hibiscus aftertaste kind of ruins the experience for me.
Flavors: Earth, Hibiscus, Orange Zest, Tart
The scent of this tea is definitely beets. It’s a bit unpleasant warm. I added a small amount of sugar to make it better. As it cools, I get used to the flavor and enjoy it decently well drinking it slowly throughout the day. It’s not one I’d want to have all the time, but it’s certainly unique! Much more of a beet flavor than the DavidsTEA version has. I’d call this one rather savory and warming and definitively beet.
A beetroot in tea? Are you serious?
I am not a fan of beetroot. I can not even imagine it in tea. It is just weird, you know?
Boiling water, 300 ml glass tea mug, 2 tea spoons of mix in strainer.
Beetroot is very good dyestuff. I know it, because we have it on the garden and my mother(and grandma) loves it. Not men in my family though :D
So, it turned into pink – deep red colour. It smells quite earthy, after beetroot naturally and little of orange zest. It looks quite lovely.
In taste it is good. Yep beetroot is quite strong, but I was afraid it will be too strong. Certainly noticable that earthy flavour of it.
But then there is sweet notes. I assume it is that apple pieces in and orange peel. That makes it milder, sweeter and bit refreshing.
Flavors: Apple, Earth, Fruity, Orange Zest
Another entry from the exciting Bluebird tea roulette collection, and MAN, it’s definitely a beet tea.
I felt like I needed something both calming and fortifying this morning, since I’m preparing for a job interview. The earthiness of beetroot seemed a good choice. The concept of a beet tea is new to me, and I was admittedly skeptical. The dry mix smells just like beets, and as it brews, I get the aroma of, well, cooked beets. And it brews up a vibrant shade of deep beetroot pink. This isn’t selling it well, but man, it’s actually really good! The flavour is strongly beet as well, but bolstered by subtle notes of sweet apple and a tart finish from the citrus and hibiscus. But mostly, it’s beet. And that’s actually making me feel really good about the morning. Thank you, beet!
Thank you MissB for this surprise sample with my other samples! I’m definitely up for trying any Bluebird teas, even if this one looks like hibiscus overload. I used the entire sample which is wayyy more than two teaspoons. Hopefully it doesn’t kill me! I ran downstairs so this one steeped for four minutes at boiling too. Yikes. I think I just realized… what if I steeped hibiscus teas at a lower temp? I could try it anyway. The color of the cup is magenta! Or like a beet? I don’t think I’ve ever had beets before! The flavor is actually NICE for a fruity tea! Wow.. this isn’t even the first fruity tea from Bluebird I’ve actually loved. They are even good at making fruit blends! Somehow this isn’t as hibiscus as I thought it would be… just enough to give it some kick. Really, it does actually taste like beets. Then there is a sweetness from the apple. Then some citrus from the lemon/orange. This is balanced wonderfully. Really over two teaspoons wasn’t overdone after all. WOW again… I really like Bluebird’s fruit teas. I might even like the fruity teas more than the black tea base that they use, because it isn’t enough of a kick for me. If only all fruity blends could be this nice.
