Blueberry Tea

Are you familiar with Blueberry Tea? It’s a cocktail served warm, and a delicious treat to end a meal. Or sip while reading a book on a Saturday afternoon as the Vancouver skies endlessly dump rain outside your window. It’s warm and cozy, yet feels slightly fancy and indulgent.

What’s interesting to me is that there are no blueberries in this recipe. Not a single one. But, somehow, the combination of ingredients result in a blueberry taste. As with most recipes I share here on ABG, it’s ridiculously easy to make. Give it a go and let me know what you think!

Blueberry Tea


  • 1/2 oz Grand Marnier
  • 1/2 oz Amaretto
  • 1 c prepared black tea
  • sugar for rimming the glass
  • 1 tsp orange juice
  • 1 slice orange for garnish



  1. Dip the top rim of your glass in orange juice to moisten.
  2. Next dip the glass into the sugar, turning to ensure it sticks to the orange juice.
  3. Add both Amaretto and Grand Marnier to the glass.
  4. Top with black tea, and garnish the glass with an orange slice. Serve immediately.

This can also be made with Earl Grey tea. If it’s late, and you’re worried about caffeine, feel free to use a decaffeinated black tea of your choice. If you’re like me, you won’t bother with the orange slice and will add milk before enjoying this drink.


Bon Appetit!
