From 52teas

Sometimes you feel like a nut…

sometimes you feel like you need some chocolatey-coconut-almond bliss… but before you reach for that candy bar, here’s a tempting and way more healthy alternative: our premium black teas blended with almond slivers, cacao nibs, honking big coconut flakes and 100% organic flavors.

If you missed out on this with last year’s Box of Chocolate (Teas), here’s your chance to nab some, reblended with our new organic flavors.

Our Tea of the Week for the week of January 21st, 2012

I’ve drank this before and didn’t really like it. Tried again this morning being more careful with steeping parameters. I used cooler water – closer to 90C for 3.5 minutes.MUCH better this time around. It’s still not all that I had hoped it would be, but a decent chocolate tea. I’m getting the black tea base and the chocolate, still not much almonds though. I’m not sure if it’s me, but I keep trying nutty teas, and keep not tasting much nuts. I would love to find a tea that I think actually tastes like almonds. All in all, this is just ok.

For a black tea blend this is very tasty. Black tea is not my tea of choice mostly due to the caffeine content but this is worth the indulgence. In line with the name, the predominate flavor is a nice roasted almond flavor with the chocolate and coconut in the background. I did find lowering the steep time for a typical black tea did allow for a greater balance of flavors even when enjoyed straight. Overall, this makes a nice dessert tea without being overly artificial or sweet.

I’m going through my back stash of 52teas teas that I haven’t tried yet and this one came up this morning. It smells very dark chocolatey and very nutty although I’m hoping that it doesn’t have any actual almond oil in it because that is what has ruined the taste of all almond teas for me previously. I just can’t stand the taste of that, it tastes like alcohol to me and I hate that taste.

This has a strong flavour of dark chocolate and nutty almonds. I’m picking up a bit of coconut, but mostly in the aftertaste. It’s been a while since I had one, but if the balance of the chocolate and the coconut were a little more balanced, this would taste strikingly like an Almond Joy bar. Hmm, that makes me wonder if there’s any chance of getting a 3 Muskateers tea.

From the LiberTEAS sampler I bought a while back

This tea smells amazing – almost like a well-crafted amaretto or a quality fortified wine – and I was literally salivating as I poured it out. I haven’t been this excited about a tea in a while…

Sadly, though, the taste doesn’t quite hold up. I was hoping for something deeply almond-flavoured, but instead it tastes a lot more like an Almond Joy – which, apparently, was their intent – with an oily sort of almond flavour and hints of dark chocolate and coconut.

All of these delicious flavours are at the end, though, with a whole mouthful of black tea that you have to get through first…and I kinda wish it was the other way around. It leaves my mouth feeling a little greasy, though, and that really starts to get unpleasant after a while.

So it’s not a favourite of mine, but I think it has promise. I may have to work on blending this one and seeing where it goes…
