I had no real expectations when I brewed this Blueberry Buckle Green Tea Blend from Tea For All Reasons. I have enjoyed the other teas from this company that I’ve tried, especially some of their Earl Grey offerings. And while I do enjoy blueberry teas … I can’t honestly say that’s a flavor that I’m leaping up and down to try, you know? I like it, but, it’s not a favorite flavor.
But … I LOVE this Blueberry Buckle! It tastes SO good. The blueberry flavor is sweet and finishes off with that tarty tingle that you sort of expect with berries, and I can taste a creamy note to this that is somewhere between fresh cream and butter. I don’t know if this is from the flavoring (like a Blueberry Buckle a la mode?) or if it’s from the green tea, but I like that it’s there … it not only gives the cup a decadent flavor component but also lends a sort of “cake-y/freshly baked” taste to the cup.
I can taste the cake in this. I can taste the blueberries. And I can taste the fresh, lush taste of the green tea. It’s absolutely delicious. If you’re a fan of blueberry teas OR cake-like teas … this is one that you need to try soon. Seriously. It’s so good!
This makes a fantastic dessert replacement because all the flavors that you crave when you want a dessert are there! It’s good as it cools, but it’s one you really want to try when the tea is hot. Cold/iced, it’s good … but hot, it’s amazing.
