A review of Jasmine Coconut Green Tea by Whispering Pines Tea Company
I am finishing off the last bits of this Jasmine Coconut Green tea. I fixed myself a large cup filled with very hot water and placing my strainer on top of mug I pour the water into the cup.
I like this teas color; that glowing orange/yellow glow and tea smells wonderful and it is sweetly on its own. I think this is a tea one can enjoy throughout the day, specifically in the afternoon with some macaroon. They would go nicely together; the lightness of this tea with a semi-crunchy and gooey/chewy macaroon with sprinkles of coconuts would do nicely.
I found this recipe from the Recipe is from The Cottage Journal Magazine
TROPICAL COCONUT MACAROONS

2 (14-ounce) bags sweetened flaked coconut
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2. In a large bowl, combine coconut, sugar, flour, and salt. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until well combined. Add egg whites, beating until well blended. Stir in macadamia nuts, dried pineapple, and dried mango. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
3. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let cool on pans for 2 minutes. Remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks. Store in airtight containers.
Tea up and enjoy!
