Meyer lemons and blueberries are a classic combination. They work well together because the citrus notes and acidity of the lemon enhance the flavor of the blueberries. It is similar to the combination of lemon and huckleberries. The chocolate acts as a third frontal flavor, but it is also there for texture. The micro basil is sweet and is often used for dessert applications. It has grassy notes that act as background flavors that simply serve to strengthen the frontal flavors.
