Can a tea smell like a fresh batch of blueberry muffins? Blueberry Muffin tea is a simple tea with serious intentions – to give you a liquified, calorie-free treat in a cup.

What is Blueberry Muffin tea?

Blueberry Muffin is a flavoured from the US based tea subscription company . Just like many other Simple Loose Leaf blends, this blend is a very simple tea, too. It has only 3 ingredients – red rooibos tea base, mallow blossoms and flavouring. With its pretty purplish-blue colour, blue mallow blossoms blend in perfectly.

Red rooibos is made from South African shrub Aspalathus linearis. It was first introduced for its potential health benefits, but later it became one of the most important ingredients for making herbal, blends. Red rooibos is a perfect alternative to . Although it doesn't have the same flavour as black tea (it's naturally slightly sweet and earthy), just like black tea, it's strong enough for making tea lattes, iced teas and tea syrups. Blueberry Muffin smells delicious. In fact, it does smell like a fresh batch of blueberry muffins – soft and buttery with a touch of vanilla and zestiness.

How to brew this tea?

We brewed this tea following instructions on the packaging with 2 teaspoons of tea leaves per cup of water for 5 minutes at 100 degrees Celsius. Brewed tea has the same scent as dry leaves, only softer and gentler, with a pretty red colour. The flavour is light and soft too, with light buttery and light earthy rooibos note. Although the flavour isn't overpowering, and this tea is an unmistakeably red rooibos blend, it has just enough of a buttery flavour and, interestingly, a long blueberry muffin aftertaste. Rooibos tea will never be bitter (unless it contains bitter ingredients such as lemon peel), so don't be afraid to brew it longer or use more tea leaves. This tea would be perfect for making iced teas or hot tea lattes. For making an iced tea, try steeping it with some fresh crushed blueberries.

This tea doesn't contain any sugar. Since red rooibos is naturally slightly sweet, unless you prefer drinking really sweet teas, you don't need to add any condiments. It's great pure, but it will go well with some honey or brown sugar too. Blueberry Muffin is a calorie-free liquid dessert that would be great for tea drinkers who like rooibos tea but want to enjoy something unique and prefer caramel, buttery and vanilla teas. It would make for a great daily tea too.
