Whilst out shopping in a health food store recently, I came across their packages lined up on a shelf. There were many different blends of teas and herbal infusions. Wanting something light with the warmer weather approaching, I decided to go for a tisane called True Blueberry. It was something different than what I normally drink. Plus, I love blueberries!
True Blueberry contained other ingredients besides blueberry flavouring. The list included:
- Orange Peel
- Natural Flavours (Contain Soy Lecithin)
- Blackberry Leaves
- Wild Blueberries
- Blueberry Leaves
As the water began to change colour and appear more like a red wine, I was hit with light scents of blueberries, oranges, and flowers. The taste was tart and tangy. I could detect flavours of blueberries and oranges with each sip. It was quite pleasant actually. The box did indicate that the drink could be sweetened, but I think that would work best drunk cold over ice. I rather liked the tartness.
True Blueberry is definitely a summertime drink methinks. I can see it being enjoyed in a punch or mixed with an alcohol component to make cocktails. The only thing negative I found was that the products are not offered as loose leaves, but it’s a minor issue.
