Thank you Anlina for adding this as a sample in the Secret Pumpkin swap! I do love my coconut tea, so I was excited to try another coconut tea cold brewed since I’m still looking for that perfect coconut cold brew.
- Pretty average coconut/black tea
- Definitely drinkable and good; but unremarkable
I finished all 25oz. and enjoyed it, but it took me all day to do it – my teeth were REALLY sore/tender and acting up so putting anything in my mouth was tough when I had this one on Monday.
So a new shop opened near me recently, that carries fancy olive oil and balsamic vinegars, bulk spices, cocktail mixers, and a nice big wall of loose leaf tea form Divinitea! They brought in Linda Smith, the proprietor, to do a tasting a couple of weeks ago. This was one of the teas she was sampling, and I was completely won over.
I’m not a huge fan of coconut in general, but that’s mostly because it’s usually cloying and I hate the texture of the dried, grated stuff. But this… it’s not that it’s subtle, the coconut flavor is very strong. But it’s well-blended, with notes of vanilla, and a strong black tea base to give it some depth and backbone. Smooth enough to drink straight (if not oversteeped) but delicious with a splash of whole milk. I did four short steeps and mixed them together.
Flavors: Coconut, Creamy, Smooth, Vanilla
Mmm quite nice. This smells delicious and coconutty.
The liquor is deep brown, and smells like the dry leaf. There’s a hint of bitterness that’s kind of chocolately, plus lots of sweet coconut and cream. Nice, smooth mouth feel, kind of thick.
This is rich and desserty, and quite nice.
Flavors: Bitter, Coconut, Cream, Dark Chocolate, Smooth, Sweet
At first whiff, this tea smells divine right out of the bag; just like sweet, fresh coconut. After steeping, the tea retains much of its coconut scent, but with the added earthiness of the black tea. The tea leaves themselves looked gorgeous, having unfurled fully, and returning to their natural length (pleasantly surprised how intact they were).
Since there were no hints on how long to steep this baby (the company’s website is lacking a little as yet), I went for four minutes, which unfortunately, was too long. At four minutes, it’s a little bitter, so next time I’ll try three and see what works. But, even though the time was too long, the tea still manages to taste deliciously of coconut. I’m loving the aftertaste, and looking forward to trying this one again.
Oh, and I wanted to add that this is a “local” tea company for me, so I’m excited to be the first reviewer. I picked this one up at a great co-op near Albany, NY.
Tried this today as a tea latte. Which kinda threw the owner of the cafe for a loop. She hadn’t heard of a tea latte before! So I talked her through it and it turned out awesome!! She added a little honey to the mix, whole frothed milk, and yum! This tastes like liquid Fruit Loops! Might sound gross to some, but it is so good!!
I’ve learned I do like Earl Grey. This is not my usual go to EG in the morning. But we were running late. Plus I forgot what a pain it was to try and get even sneakers on around an aircast! So I stopped on the way into work for this and a gluten free breakfast sammich. This EG has a hint of bergamot to it and not the usual slap in the face I’m used to and have come to love.
I added a little half and half, sweetener, and honey to my cup this morning. It really brought out the flavors and is currently making my morning on this dreary day.
I forgot my tea this morning on the way into work. I know what was I thinking? Honestly I was probably thinking about my orthopedic appt. this afternoon. Where hopefully I will hear I only have a level three sprain in ankle/knee and not a fracture or worse in my ankle! “sigh”
So thankfully my favorite cafe has a nice selection of teas on tap. I chose this one and it has a nice flavor like most EB’s. My guess would be that this is a blend of Assam and Ceylon. It has some malty notes in it and it pretty smooth. I added milk and sweetener to this one (like always). It is just a nice start to my day. :)
Tried this with my husband today when we stopped into a new tea room – The Tailored Tea. He of course said “it tastes like tea”. But I noticed the earthy tones of this tea. It was nice and light. Not something I felt the need to take home (they sell it by the ounce there), but I would probably have it again sometime down the road when we go back. I will say it was prepared correctly! Which is sometimes rare when ordering loose leaf tea in most places. So kudos to them on that!
