necessiteasbluecrumbThe Necessiteas makes some of my favourite dessert blends, but it's been awhile since I've tried anything new from them, so I'm excited for the chance to try this herbal blend. I brew 1.5 teaspoons per cup with boiling water for 5 minutes, getting a bright red coloured cup. It smells exactly like it should with a strong 'baked goods' sweetness accented with blueberry.

While the scent is subtly fruity, the flavour is more blueberry than crumble. It's strongly fruity with a distinct underlying bakery taste. There's a nice creaminess to balance the tart berry flavour, and a cinnamon spiciness that lingers in the aftertaste.

The flavour is accurate, warming, and comforting. My only complaint is that I feel there's a touch too much hibiscus, to the point that its tartness overpowers the 'crumble' somewhat. It's just a touch acidic, making it a good blend but not one if my favourites from this company.
