drank Coconut Truffle by Tea Guys
115 tasting notes

Another 5 am conference call, another chance to stay at home in my pajamas and drink tea samples while pretending to pay attention to people all over the world for a couple of hours before going into work… I don’t know what I enjoy more… being able to stay in my pajamas for a couple of extra hours in the morning or drinking as many delicious teas as I possibly can for a couple of hours to help keep my eyes open.

This initially started out tasting a little bit like a chai tea (I think it may have been a case of cross contamination) but as it cooled a little, it took on a serious toasted coconut taste similar to a coconut rough or a toasted coconut cream pie. There was a chocolate scent but I didn’t get much of this flavor from the tea when sipping. Big thanks again to Inkling for sharing!!!

Mmmm blackcurrant, vanilla and a touch of cream (which is probably the milk I added)… this tastes like dessert in a cup to me!! Huge thanks to Inkling for sharing this with me… Its absolutely delicious!!!

This reminds me of Davids Tea Blueberry Jam but with one important difference… No added sweetener!! yum!! Thanks to Inkling for sharing this in a recent swap.. There are some serious blueberry notes in this tea!! I’ll be picking some of this up as my go to blueberry tea when I’m finally (if ever) off my tea buying slowdown!

So glad you’re enjoying it!

I almost didn’t try this tea because it sounded a little too out of my comfort zone.. I mean spinach chive tea… Don’t you mean soup?? Anyway in the end I decided to give it a go, what’s a TTB for if its not to get you tasting something you wouldn’t usually pick for yourself?? And I’m so glad that I did! This was actually very tasty… With a slight punch of citrus and a savory flavor dominated by chives this is definitely something I would buy!

I must try out more ROT! This is very enjoyable, assuming you like bananas and let’s face it, why would you be sipping a tea called banana cuppa chocolate unless you liked bananas??? This would make a good after dinner treat or maybe something to drink in bed with a book on a cold night… The banana and chocolate are well balanced, neither overpowers the other and most importantly the banana doesn’t taste overly artificial… Yum!!

Another 5 am conference call means another tasty tea picked from the tea box to help keep my eyelids open and my brain functioning – darn international time zones!!

This is another tasty non overpowering rose tea selection from the TTB only this time there is a pop of peachiness which is a really nice touch to help make this tea stand out from the many rose teas I seem to have inadvertently sampled recently. Another winner for my taste buds!

This actually quite tasty! Its a malty tea with a hint of rose which actually works really really well!! This tea is Goldilocks worthy – not too much, not too little.. the rose is just right!!

Oh no this tea is so not for me!!! It smells and tastes like mulling spices!! If you’re into mulled drinks definitely give this tea a try!!

This tea is a tasty surprise!! I tend to find 52Teas a little temperamental, you usually need to really baby them within very specific steeping perimeters to get the full taste effect with them which I usually just don’t have the patience for. My new Breville tea makers has definitely helped me to enjoy my stash of 52Teas a little more as now I don’t have to worry about over/under steeping or my water temperature.

Brewed at 212 and steeped for 3 minutes this tea has some serious wild strawberry, cinnamon and crusty pastry notes! The strawberry is a little artificial tasting and I couldn’t drink more than one cup of this at a time but its a nice late morning / afternoon treat without the caffeine hit!
