drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana
9 tasting notes

Going for a bit of a tropical adventure for my second cup of the day. Enter, Zingiber Ginger Coconut and Earl Grey Creme!

Used 2 tsp of Zingiber Ginger Coconut tea to just over 8 oz boiling water. Brewed for 3 minutes, then added Earl Grey Creme (1 tsp). Let brew another 3 minutes. Added a dash of vanilla coconut milk.

My cup smells of coconut with a hint of earl grey. This mix is creamy, tasting mostly of coconut with subtle hints of the early grey and vanilla. The tiniest bit of a ginger zip hits my mouth a few seconds after drinking. No unpleasant after taste or dry mouth feel. I’ve found from past adventures with mixing Earl Grey Creme that it does really well with other teas, especially fruity flavored ones. It’s a bit strong smelling, and I definitely think 1 tsp goes a long way with Earl Grey Creme. It also does best with a little something like sugar and/or creamer.

I am now totally in love with this mix and glad I tried it out. Also glad I have plenty of both of these teas on hand. I have a feeling this will be my morning mix for a while. I feel more alert and refreshed about halfway through this cup.

The only downside is that both of these teas have super small leaves. The single serve cup I used has a brewing basket with far too large holes for these two. Make sure to use a fine mesh strainer for this tea!
