Tea of the Week for May 18, 2020: Blueberries & Cream Rooibos!
Posted by on
Blueberries & Cream Rooibos!
Tea Description: Blueberries & Cream - a delightful combination & I'm loving it blended with the naturally honey-sweet, nutty flavor of rooibos! Sweet & creamy with just enough of that berry tangy note from the blueberry. Nice!
Organic rooibos blended with freeze-dried blueberries & vanilla bean! It's organic, VEGAN, gluten-free, allergen-free & naturally caffeine free. A perfect late-night cuppa when you're craving something sweet that won't go straight to your waistline!
organic ingredients: rooibos, blueberries, calendula petals, vanilla bean & natural flavors
I have loved every single drop of this tea - from start to finish, but if I'm being honest, I must admit that it's best as you get toward the bottom of the cup. I'm not sure if it's because those flavors have developed more - either in the cup or on the palate - or if it's because the flavors develop as the tea cools. I just know that right now, as I'm almost finished with my second cuppa of this blend - the flavor is so blueberry & cream! YUM!
to brew: give the pouch a gentle shake before you measure - because those vanilla beans are TINY and you want a good representation of all the flavors in this blend. use at least 4g of leaf to 12 ounces of very hot water (195°F) & allow to steep for at least 8 minutes (I steeped for about 10 minutes). strain & allow to cool for at least 5 minutes.
I like this tea when it's served warm - not too hot & not too cold. I'm guessing the temperature the liquid is now - maybe about 110°F? The flavors really have popped at this point & I'm getting a beautiful blueberry & cream flavor. So tasty!
