This tea was one of the first ones that I purchased from Tin Roof Teas, and it’s remained a favorite. I love chocolate and coconut, and this tea has both! It’s a pretty blend with large flakes of dried coconut, cocoa nibs, and small pieces of white and dark chocolate. The tea itself smells of black tea and chocolate. The flavor is nutty, with a sweet chocolatey finish. This tea is really good when mixed with Tin Roof Tea’s Mazipan blend, ah-may-zing!

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves and twigs, large flakes of dried coconut, cocoa nibs and pieces of white and dark chocolate. Coconut and chocolate float to the top during steeping.
-Dry leaves smell of coconut and chocolate. Tea liquor aroma is of black tea and chocolate.
-Tea liquor is a cloudy dark brown color.
-Malty coconut flavor with a sweet chocolatey finish. Slightly creamy mouthfeel.
-Best with sweetener. Milk optional.
-Excellent tea. Perfect chocolate and coconut flavor.

Have you ever had Soho by Harney? Future son-in-law loves this but wants sachets and I was wondering how they compare…

Hmm, yes I have had Soho, and remember that I loved it. I rated the Bon Bon higher than the Soho, but that may be because I’m so partial to Tin Roof Teas (but I favor Harneys too. . .) The Soho seems to have the addition of vanilla, whereas Bon Bon is just straight chocolate and coconut. The coconut is definitely stronger in the Bon Bon, in my opinion. The Soho is a good option if he wants sachets, and it’s basically the same with some vanilla added. :)

I think the Soho was more of a candy like sweetness (like chocolate covered coconut), whereas the Bon Bon seems to be more authentic coconut flavor mixed with chocolate. If that even makes sense, ha! You have me thinking about this now. . .
