Leaf Type: Fruit Tisane
Where to Buy: Fusion Teas
Everyone’s favorite – blueberry muffins fresh from the oven. Our exciting composition captures this aroma perfectly. The intense taste of sweet ripe blueberries in combination with the natural colorful ingredients result in a taste experience, which seems to come straight from heaven.
When I poured this tisane into my mug, I was a little worried after seeing how dark and thick it was. It looked like it was going to be a very hibiscus-heavy tisane. Fortunately, though, I recognized the hibiscus as I was measuring it into my tea maker, and I knew that it was better not to brew it for the recommended steep time of 10 – 12 minutes. Instead, I set the timer for 5 minutes and crossed my fingers.
The fragrance of the brewed tisane is really incredible. It smells like warm blueberry muffins.
And, actually, this is pretty tasty, despite the hibiscus. Actually, the flavor of the hibiscus is less noticeable than its contributions to the color and texture to the liquor. I can still taste it, but it isn’t nearly as strong a flavor as I thought it might be.
The flavor isn’t as “blueberry muffin-ish” as the aroma might lead one to think. It is blueberry, but not muffin. I can also taste the apple and the caramel. That’s right. I said caramel. And I think it is the caramel that makes this tisane rate so high on the YUM scale. The ingredient list shows yogurt pieces as one of the components to this tisane as well, but I don’t really taste much from it. Perhaps a little bit here and there, but, it isn’t a strong presence.
Overall, an enjoyable cup. I can’t say that this is my favorite blend from Fusion Tea Room, because it isn’t, but, it is tasty. I think I might have enjoyed it more if it had more of a cake-y/muffin-y flavor in there, and while we’re at it, it would be better if there was less hibiscus. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it, and I guess that’s what really counts, right?
