drank Coconut Cream Pie by 52teas
701 tasting notes

The scent when I open this bag was a little overwhelming, but the steeped tea actually turned out pretty tasty.

I’ve been a little wary of 52Teas because I don’t find the black tea base to be my cup of tea, but I noticed someone mention the other day that these blends are best brewed just below boiling, rather than at boiling, so I tried that out this evening. I am quite pleased with the results.

The coconut is here, but not overwhelming like the scent, and the black tea base isn’t overtaking the flavour or lacking. I do think I prefer is hot rather than as it cools.

I have some of this on the way and I am excited to try it and other 52 teas! The package just arrived to my Dad in California so it will be coming my way soon!

I tend to brew all flavoured black teas at below boiling regardless of brand. I find the flavouring often comes out better that way. Kusmi’s black flavoured blends actually have a below boiling recommendation on them.

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
