As you may have figured out, my kids are often my inspiration for tea blends. When I am out of ideas from my forays into the world of disappointing bagged teas, I ask them what they think would be a good idea.
Sometimes they come out with insanely awesome ideas, sometimes they are just insane and a little gross sounding, but for most of them I will give them a shot. I mean hey, chocolate covered bacon didn't sound all that awesome to me, but it was good when I tried it!
Kate is the one that comes up with the most off strange and, shall we say, uncomplimentary flavors? Even though many of her ideas never see a package with their own name, when she gets a good idea it is a GOOD idea. Chocolate Blueberry is definitely one of those ideas.
Kate loves anything chocolate and has since her first bite of it so many halloweens ago when she had a kitkat in each hand, chocolate dripping out of her mouth yelling 'Cho-co-late' in total ecstasy. I think most of us can relate.
She was clear that chocolate and blueberry were the perfect pairing, and I have to say I agree. I know you might be thinking right now 'Chocolate Tea? I'm not sure about that'. And if your experience with chocolate drinks have been that cloying overly artificial chocolate, I would agree. But the chocolate I use in this doesn't have anything artificial about it (like all of my teas). There is a nice balanced flavor of cocoa, with a hint of vanilla to enhance that. And the pop of the blueberry compliments it so nicely you just may find yourself continuing to go back for more.
The best part is that this is not only calorie-free, since it is a rooibos, it is also caffeine free, making it a perfect bedtime treat! Much better than sneaking the last few Girl Scout cookies you are hiding in the back of your cupboard from your family.... Oh, wait is that just me? Ahem....
No really, if you are looking for the perfect drink for the end of the day, one that will help you unwind and actually help your nervous system settle down to help you get some sleep. Rooibos is the ideal option. and if you are like me and want a sweet snack before bed-time. Chocolate Blueberry is totally the way to go.
But don't take my word for it. Try it out yourself!
