Leaf Type: Rooibos
Where to Buy: Fusion Teas
The wonderful thing with Rooibos is that it compliments just about any flavor. Same as true with blueberries. Of course we only use real blueberries. Then for a smooth finish we added yogurt granules. Naturally caffeine free so it can be enjoyed anytime of the day.
I am so very happy with this tisane for a couple of reasons.
First, I was happy to find that there is NO hibiscus in this blend. It seems that hibiscus is added to many – far TOO many – berry tisanes to enhance the natural tartness of the berry. I am glad to see that Fusion Tea Room chose not to follow the trend of adding hibiscus to berry blends with this delicious dessert tea.
Second, I am happy with this blend because it IS delicious. The blueberry flavor tastes sweet with just a hint of tartness, and it is very true to the berry’s flavor. That is to say … this TASTES like real blueberries. It doesn’t taste artificial.
The yogurt adds a creamy element to the cup that complements the blueberry, as well as a tangy note that gives the sweeter flavors of this cup some contrast. The rooibos base adds a light earthiness to the cup, but the rooibos flavor doesn’t become too strong here, allowing the focus to remain on the sweet, juicy blueberry flavor.
This is such a delightful tisane. It is sweet and indulgent enough to satisfy those sweet cravings … and makes a delicious dessert, any time of the day.
