drank Blueberry Rooibos by Rishi Tea
260 tasting notes

You wake up to the sound of your alarm, and reach over to hit the snooze button. But you realize that your alarm clock is a blueberry. Confused, you sit up and reach to turn on the light, except that the light is a blueberry. You reach to pull back the duvet, only it has been replaced by a sheet of blueberries. Panicked, you run into the bathroom to look in the mirror, and…YOU ARE A GIANT BLUEBERRY.

Open the package and take a whiff, and it’s like every single entity in your realm of consciousness has been replaced by blueberries. The scent is strong, young Skywalker. Luckily, I like those little blue pellets, so this is an enjoyable experience for me.

The scent continues to waft up sweetly when the tea is brewing. The taste is a similar to the blueberries as well – slightly tart, but with an unmistakable sweetness [if you get good ones, that is]. The sweetness in this tea arrives in the finish and lingers in the aftertaste.

For me, the rooibos in this is almost unrecognizable. When I do taste it, it’s in the aftertaste, but it’s not strong.

I’m curious to try this iced.

So far so good, Rishi. You’re two for two. Can you keep it up? CHALLENGE EXTENDED.

The I AM A GIANT BLUEBERRY aspect of this tea is what I disliked so intensely about it. I actually pouted to my husband, “I am not going to continue to sit here if that can of tea is sharing the same table.” He made the correct choice between the hideously strong blueberry tea and me. He loves me more than blueberries. I’m pleased.

@Carolyn: that made me laugh… I do the same thing with DH and his (extremely noxious smelling, insanely expensive) single malts. Sadly, he usually picks the single malt!

That tea does sound totally yum. The GIANT BLUEBERRY remarks reminded me of Violet’s end in Willy Wonka.

@kat If you love blueberries, this could be the tea for you. Rooibos isn’t technically tea, it’s from a different plant, but it is supposed to have additional health benefits.
