Really, really excited to see a blueberry blend introduced into the Wize Monkey line up! I wanted to order it w/ the initial release but it sold out so quickly that I didn’t have a chance! My manager scored a tin of it though and was kind enough to share some with me so that I could still experience it! I do wish there was some actual blueberry in the blend and that it wasn’t just blueberry flavouring – if only for an improved visual. I know that it ultimately doesn’t matter; a small percentage of blueberries in the dry leaf wouldn’t actually impact the taste at all – but my monkey brain still feels like it would do something even if logic dictates otherwise…
To start – this taste delicious! However, it is a little bit strange in its deliciousness!?
You know those strawberry candied in the foil wrapper that actually looks like a strawberry? The ones that everyone’s grandmother used to have a seemingly endless stock of? It tastes almost exactly what I’d imagine a blueberry version of those candies would be like – sweet, sticky/syrupy blueberry candy! The flip, though, is that it’s also floral!? It’s sort of strange having a mug of something that tastes both like candies and like freshly picked flowers – but I did like the mix.
Looking forward to more experimenting with this tisane, and hopefully acquiring a full tin at some point!
