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.
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!
