Tea of the Week for February 7, 2016!

I’ve never actually had a Blueberry Mojito before. Actually, my mojito experiences are limited to mojito flavored teas – but I do know that a mojito is a combination of lime, spearmint and rum. With that knowledge, I figured that if I add blueberry to the flavors of lime, spearmint and rum, I’d have a Blueberry Mojito. Then, I figured if I take those flavors and combine them with some amazing Zomba Steamed Green Tea leaves from the Satemwa estate in Malawi, along with a little bit of organic Chinese Chun Mee and Gunpowder green teas and lime leaves, I’d have a Blueberry Mojito Green Tea!

And this is pretty close to what I would expect a Blueberry Mojito to taste like: I am tasting blueberry, rum, lime and spearmint. But this is even better than that Blueberry Mojito that you might order at that trendy bar – because this has tea in it too!

Really good served hot but I imagine it’d be even nicer iced!

I love this blend. Who knew blueberries and lime would work so well together? A big ole plump blueberry is floating in the infuser. And then spearmint! I love them all paired with a fresh green tea as well. I guess there should be rum flavor here? But I don’t notice that as much. I love the combination for what IS here though. Equal parts lime, mint, blueberry. Love a fruity green tea. I have plenty on standby for summer…

The strongest smell I noticed upon opening the package was mint. Which is obvious, but this was a baseball bat of mint to the nose, with a soft hint of lime playing underneath. Alongside the mint and lime was a candied sort of sweetness that reminded me of marshmallow, making the overall aroma similar to that of Graveyard Mist, another 52Teas blend.

The dried leaf was a varied mix of green bits of all shapes and sizes. Along with the small flakes of mint were different varieties of green tea – some leaves looked short and stubby, while others looked long and flat. The mix was studded with small, puckered blueberries, as well as the occasional wedge of dried lime.

I took the entire half-ounce package and brewed it with 1 L of 80C water for 3-4 minutes. Before I poured the water in I made sure to add a splort of agave nectar to the pitcher to sweeten things up. After that, I took out the leaves and topped the extra-strong brew with cold water, then let it cool down in the fridge overnight. The resulting brew was somewhat cloudy and had an amber-green-orange colour to it that reminded me of Hoegaarden or other types of witbier.

Like the aroma, the strongest taste is of mint, with a hint of lime at the back of the mouth. However, that sweet, marshmallow-like note morphs into something a bit deeper and more distinctive. I had a hard time putting my finger on it, but then I figured it out: it reminded me of sarsaparilla, one of the key flavours in root beer.

I wonder if it was added to give the brew the depth of rum. Whatever it is, it certainly adds an interesting flavour. However, I didn’t get a whole lot of blueberry here.

52teas did a good job capturing the flavors. Blueberry, mint, rum/alcohol.

I got sucked in by the Mystery Grab Bags from 52Teas last week! My package included 5 teas total, including a 1/2 ounce “taster pouch” of this one. While this isn’t a blend I would have gravitated toward on my own, I found it perfect for these hot, humid, end-of-summer days. The green tea base is mild and smooth and the flavoring is light and refreshing: a bit of blueberry, a touch of lime, and a lingering minty finish. Loving it iced!
