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?
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
