Some of you may remember the wonky-crazy post i wrote almost a year ago on Elmood Inn’s Bourbon Black Blend. This winter I somehow managed to stumble upon another of Elmwood Inn’s uber-rare domestic products, a caffeine-free Blueberry tisane. Besides the fact that it was grown in Kentucky, i think the most exciting thing about Elmwood Inn Blueberry Infusion is its (seemingly) biodegradable packaging. Just to be on the safe side, i’ve been keeping this one in Tupperware with other like tisanes.
I needn’t have worried. It turns out inside the cardboard tube, the sachets are enclosed in a ziplock bag. My bag wasn’t actually that well sealed. You really have to hand it to Elmwood Inn for their ingenuity.
At any rate, it’s been awhile since we had a liquor color on this blog that wasn’t yellow or brown so I’m pretty psyched about Blueberry Infusion’s mauve plum. In aroma, Elmwood Inn’s Blueberry Infusion is more or less exactly what you’d expect, a light blueberry. Unlike a lot of tisanes however, Elmwood Inn’s Blueberry Infusion actually does have a decent amount of taste. In flavor, Elmwood Inn’s Blueberry Infusion has a sweet and gooey boysenberry with a slight blueberry pie aftertaste. Texture-wise, it more closely resembles other fruit teas, though the more leafy components do lend it a bit of spunk.
