From 52teas

Buttery, cakey, brown-sugary blueberryness in a cup (or a glass). With a tiny hint of lemon. Caffeine-free vegan deliciousness. Get it while it lasts.

Blueberry Streusel oh my! Yep, definitely sweet blueberry confection goin’ on here. Except… I had to add a TON (maybe 1.5 tsp) of agave, and a splash of milk.
This is actually my second time trying this out, and my first was a bust and I wanted to review on a positive note.
The first time, I let it go too long. Maybe six minutes or so, and it was a little too thick/boring for me. This time, I added more sugar, less milk and cut the steep time… and well, that seems to have worked. I’d say overall this is tastier than my Tealish version if only because it has that cakey sortof flavour to it. However, this requires alot more sweetening so I suppose it’s a tradeoff. Good timing because my Tealish package went bad on me! so this will have to replace it. I had meant to tin it, but never got around to finding the right size label and used my superpower of procrastination. (ha!)
Rating: 90 on taste, minus three for the sweetening = 87

I was really excited about this tea. I was a bit worried about the honeybush, but decided that it was too good to let my worries get the best of me, so I went ahead and ordered it. I do, after all, really love 52teas blueberry flavoring. So, here I am with a peculiar smelling cup of tea.

The dry tea smells like blueberry pastry through and through. Then all of the sudden BOOM honeybush. If you like honeybush, this should be by no means a problem. Sadly, I’m not a huge fan. But I like blueberry enough that I am willing to risk it!

Once brewed, the light liquor smelled deliciously buttery with the sticky blueberry creeping through the creaminess of the scent. The taste was smooth and sweet. The honeybush was a bit strong for my taste, so I decided to sweeten it. It was deliciously blueberry and pastry with the right amount of sweetness. Sadly, the honeybush was still too present for me. If I actually liked honeybush, this tea would be a favorite. I don’t like honeybush… So I am sadly going to have to pass on it.

If anyone is interested in swapping some or all of it (I only have used 2 teaspoons of the brand new pouch) just let me know! It is delicious and completely worth a try! Just beware of the honeybush! :)

Ugh, if I had the time to set up a proper swap, I’d be all over this :(

LOL, you’ve really got blueberry on the brain lately, haven’t you? :D maybe I should say, blueberry on your tastebuds. I await your verdict for the ultimate blueberry tea :)

Oh yum. Oh yummy yum yum yum!

This is really good. The blueberry flavor is perfect – tasting like ripe, juicy blueberries that are bursting with flavor. They taste like the cooked blueberries … the kind you’d taste in a blueberry muffin – and when you bite into it it just oozes with juicy flavor. Mmm!

Then there is the buttery cake taste that Frank captures so well. It is rich and dessert-y delectable. I can even taste the brown sugar crumble on top … all that’s missing is the crumbly, crispy texture. The subtle lemon note brightens the cup without intruding too much on the overall flavor.

This is better than my local bakery’s blueberry muffin. So yummy!

I’m the first one to log this blend – yay! Thanks again for the fast shipping, Frank!

I thought I would try this tisane because I am pretty fond of blueberries, though I was fairly skeptical it would live up to a streusel. This is pretty yummy though, I am getting a lot of blueberry flavor along with a bit of buttery sweetness. I did add soymilk to mine which I think helped with turning it into more of a dessert type of flavor. Overall it’s very tasty! I think I will be finishing this up very soon…

You guys I am so close to becoming the Battlestar Galactica episode of Portlandia but with Doctor Who. I started back on September 14 (thanks Netflix activity history) out of just pure curiosity and now I’m to the point where going out to mail things was like a serious problem in continuing to watch. I am not even writing tasting notes at the right times hahaha. And what do I do when I get to the end of what’s on Netflix??? WAH

Ok so had this last night. It is a bit blueberry muffin-ish I suppose, all I really got was blueberry with a hint of cake. I guess it makes sense since you just put streusel on top of a muffin, so muffin is a perfectly acceptable thing to say. Eating streusel by itself is kind of iffy. At least for me.

Maybe I could use this a little sweeter, it doesn’t seem as wonderfully blueberry as Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish. But there’s butter and brown sugar notes and definitely cake. I will have to experiment a bit before this is up there in deliciousness for me.

Buy the iTunes season pass! That will take you up to the Christmas episode! :)

momo

Oooh I should do that and then I’m sure by then I’ll be caught up to the point of stealing space on my boyfriend’s DVR

JoonSusanna

I looooove Dr. Who! Although to be fair I’ve only seen the 10th and 11th Doctor series. My goal is to be Amelia Pond and have my boyfriend be Rory Pond (haha I love that) for Halloween one year!

Thanks indigobloom!

This is a great tea! I really found it was great with no additives. I prefer this over blueberry zabaglione in fact. I get more cakey out of this than the other one from frank I tried. Too bad this one isn’t a permanent tea.

Indigobloom

wow more than Zabaglione! lol
Twas my pleasure! :)

1 tablespoon used for 375 ml of water.

Very authentic blueberry taste. Maple syrup sweetness. Hints of crumble-y baked goods taste. Something that reminds me of custard- there is the slightest tangy-ness.

Thanks to Indigobloom for sharing this with me.

First tea to try from Indigobloom and since it is past midnight, I opted for caffeine free even though I don’t work tomorrow and could have handled the caffeine. But after a meat and potatoes kind of dinner, Blueberry Streusel just seemed right.

The leaf in the bag was kind of purple-ish and kind of cool actually. I could certainly smell the blueberry. Steeped, it was very dark for a honeybush, I think, or perhaps I used too much leaf and not enough water. It also tastes a bit strong too. I can pick up the tart blueberry but I can’t really detect much else. I did add some brown sugar and milk, so that might be hiding the streusel flavour or maybe a lighter brew would reveal that aspect to my taste buds.

It’s not an amazing tea, but it is not horrible either. All in all, I think that DAVIDsTEA Blueberry Jam is better, but this is still tasty. I think I liked the Strawberry Pie better, but this is quite decent.

Indigobloom

definitely go lighter on the infusion time, I find that really helps!

Amariel

I’ll try that next time, thanks.
