TTB. Smells strongly of blueberry, and is nice and creamy. There’s a strong buttery flavor going on. The blueberry is nice, there’s just too much hibiscus and the tartness is odd against the buttery/creamy yogurt.

How do we like to start our mornings? With a blueberry muffin of course. Rich, crumbly and downright irresistible, it’s the kind of snack that never fails to make us happy. And this fruity tisane is every bit as satisfying as the real thing. It’s got crisp apple, raisins, carrot and fresh blueberries. Not to mention yogurt bits for extra creaminess. Sweet, buttery and slightly tart, it’s the perfect treat to bring along on your next road trip or early work commute. And if you’re really feeling adventurous, try adding it to your oatmeal for an extra pop of flavour. Now that’s what we call the breakfast of champions.
Apple (apple, citric acid), raisins, carrot, hibiscus blossoms, beetroot, yogurt bits (milk yogurt powder, sugar, maltodextrin, modified starch, citric acid), blueberries, cornflower blossoms, natural and artificial flavouring.

I would never buy this (since it contains dairy) but since it was in the TTB and the yoghurt pieces were fairly easy to pick out (with double washed hands and a spoon! I’m not a gross person I promise!) I decided to have an evening cup of herbal brew. I guess I expected this to be less acidic because I planned to add soy milk. Based on the colour and initial sip, I decided against it. I think milk would curdle.
There is a mice baked bread/buttery flavour, vanilla, and dried fruit flavour. It does taste quite a bit like blueberry and raisins. There is a nice sweetness to it. I don’t care for the acidity or the Earthy beetroot (carrot?) flavour, but neither are too bad. It would have been fine with less hibiscus though.

Hmm. I had it in my head that this was a rooibos, but it’s definitely not, so I have no recollection of drinking the first half of my sample packet! Good thing I have some left. In the bag, and brewed up, it smells like a hibiscus-forward fruit tea. Maybe a little creamy? Nothing too special. Even the initial sip is pretty much like that. But – that aftertaste. Exactly like a blueberry muffin. It doesn’t really make sense to me, but I kind of like it. Possibly enough to make another order and grab a bag of it along with some other things? (I am falling off the wagon quite hard, it seems.)
So upon smelling this, I’m detecting blueberry and buttery popcorn. Similar to if you’ve ever combined blueberry and popcorn jellybeans in your mouth as a kid to make the blueberry muffin flavor. It’s kind of weird and artificial, but smells enough like a baked muffin to make it appetizing. Steeps to a very gorgeous reddish color too.
Oh, hibiscus, why do you have to ruin so many teas that are better off without you?! The first thing I taste is the tart, almost sour flavor of the hibiscus. Definitely overpowers any lingering buttery notes, which are there in the aftertaste but only after you’re overwhelmed by how SOUR this tea is. And last time I checked, blueberry muffins are not predominantly sour. I don’t really taste a strong blueberry presence either. Overall, it’s not a BAD tea. But it could be so, so much better without the hibiscus. Can’t say I’d ever be compelled to buy this.
Flavors: Blueberry, Butter, Popcorn, Sour, Tart
What a strange little blend. I can’t decide whether I think it’s really blueberry muffin or something else. Just when I’m thinking it’s something else, I get a real wave of muffin.
To be clear, in the packet the blend has a tart and pungent smell that is nothing like blueberry muffins or even blueberries. Steeped, it smells quite like hot wine to me — but I think that’s the raisins. It’s possible that I got a large clump of raisins in my spoons tonight and this might not be the same with a different mix in the spoon. The liquor is a vibrant cranberry red. Really gorgeous color. I want a sweater this color.
The flavor, as I mentioned, is somewhat sneaky. At the beginning of the sip it has a winey flavor that doesn’t make me think of blueberries at all, but by the mid-sip and finish I’m getting muffin. Not so much blueberry muffin as muffin in general. It’s a pastry-like flavor, and as it settles in, a buttery, blueberry circles around and sneaks in.
It does live up to its name, which is pretty astonishing. I give it mega-points for that, tho on the whole, it’s a bit on the heavy side for me and I think it would mostly function as a dessert substitute in my world.
Flavors: Blueberry, Butter, Pastries, Raisins, Red Wine
This tea smells EXACTLY like a freshly-baked blueberry muffin! It steeps up bright pink (thanks to the hibiscus in the brew) and has a nice blueberry flavor. I wish there were more of a “muffin” flavor, but this is still a nice fruity tea.
I have mixed feelings about Blueberry Muffin. I like it better cold, as it really does have a golden, buttery, muffin hint to it, along with the sweet berry taste. Hot, it’s all sour berries and I can taste an earthy, sour, pickled note from the beet root (I know that David’sTea uses beet root to dye the tea color pink, but I don’t really need my tea to be pink and I don’t want to taste beets). Sometimes this comes off as really sour and earthy, and other times it actually tastes something like a blueberry muffin. It’s better to me once it has cooled all the way off.
I can’t get over how much this actually tasted like blueberry muffins! Not just blueberries, but the batter and all. I’ve only tried it iced for now, but I intend to try it hot tomorrow morning. The aftertaste really tastes like cake but it does leave a bit of a mouth feel.
