Second Review of this fruit tea.

I didn’t review as much tea as usual yesterday or today because I needed to accomplish a few tasks that I’ve put off for too long.

Yesterday I was learning to ride the bus to Old Town which will cost $20 A YEAR for a pass. The bus stop is half block from my front door. It took 20 minutes to get to town. Not too bad. I rewarded my effort with Curry at Rasta Pasta under the watchful eye of Bob Marley and drank cold lemongrass tea.(Check that off the list)
Today, I cleaned out my huge walk-in closet! (My closet is the same size as my kitchen!) ICK! I lost 55 pounds so lots of clothes need to go to Goodwill! By the time I finished at 4:30 I was spent! Needed tea! (Check another task off the list)

Instead of reaching for caffeine, I remembered this sweet little darling of a blueberry fruit tea, just the ahhhh blend perfect as a reward. (I’d like chocolate, money and a massage too…oh well)

This tea is full to overflowing with plump syrupy fruit! You can’t look at your cup and see through the dense liquor…oh no. This is thick tea. If you hate hibiscus have no fear. The roselle (which is in the hibiscus family) is tame and not too tart or overwhelming. You taste juicy berry which is the point of wanting this blurple tea in the first place.
I can think of all sorts of creative culinary things to do with this blissful blueberry liquor. Infuse honey in the tea or steep some in vinegar for a great beginning to a salad dressing. Iced would be perfect.
I soak apples in acid loaded fruit tea to prevent them from browning, then chill and drain before adding to a fruit salad. The flavor and texture is fantastic.

There is no skimping on fruit or flavor. This is a quality Fruit Blend!

$20 a year? So jealous! :) Also, this tea is definitely on my list to try once I manage to make a Teavivre order.

I just made my first order. 4 tea’s that I love and free shipping which I thought wasn’t bad from China. If you spend $30 shipping is free. I had waited until I tasted enough to know what I loved the best.

Kittenna

I just have to wait until my stash gets a bit smaller… I’m sure I can easily spend the $30 there to get free shipping!

blurple :D

Rasta Pasta sounds like heaven – I love it! :D I wonder if they have Marley’s Mellow Mood to drink?

Invite people over for tea, give them a cuppa the good stuff, and soon you will have people clamping for you to “put one of these on your next order for me!” LOL! Free shipping, every time!

Bonnie

At least Rasta Pasta cold brews their own house tea! (They’re a few doors down from my local tea shop) . A cool thing here is that the downtown merchants products are found in the restaurants (like tea). My son thought we had tourists visiting our Old Town ..no.not tourists ..we have a very active restaurant and outdoor event culture.

Bonnie – I use this tea to marinate pork chops – fresh from the garden mint and sage on top, cubed peeled apples, butter, cinnamon, a little salt, a tad bit of fresh ground pepper. Fresh veggies and feta/fresh oregano mashed tatters on the side.

Bonnie

Yum! I grow all those herbs and mint, just have to leave out potatoes. I often steam cauliflower with LS and garlic to simulate potatoes and mash them up. (Allergic to potato)

Azzrian

Nice! Yes mashed cauliflower is quite yummy! So sad about the potato allergy :( I could not live without my sweet potatoes. Well I COULD but …

Bonnie

Oh no! I can eat those! Different family! Whites are nightshade but not sweet potatoes!

Kittenna

@ashmanra – Clever! I need to get my roommates addicted…

Azzrian

Oh thats great Bonnie! :)
