Yo ho ho-conut

Hot buttered rum is so delicious we want it all day long. Unfortunately, most employers frown on workplace drunkenness, so we came up with this rich and creamy alternative. Toasted coconut and vanilla beans mingle with black tea in a caramelized caress of flavours. Decadent hot or iced, it also blends perfectly with dark rum, brown sugar and a dash of milk – so go ahead and indulge your inner pirate, off the clock. (MK Kosher)

Ingredients: Organic: Fair Trade Certified Black tea, coconut flakes, vanilla beans, cornflower petals. With organic and natural flavouring*.

Yummy Yummy Yummy! That is all I can say about this tea. I was suppose to get this with my first package of Davids tea but they accidentally sent me a different mix of teas soooo they let me keep that one and then sent me the resolutions kit which has this delicious tea in it. The smell is so yummy! It smells like lifesavers butter rum flavor. I loved those ones. It is buttery, sweet and caramelized coconut.

The liquor was just the perfect color a nice rich dark amber, I truly love that color! The smell is still strong and I can’t wait to sip it. After my first sip I was like ok… this is good, not as powerful as the smell but still really really good.

It is smooth and well rounded, you can taste the sweetness and a touch of the toasted coconut, the base is a great black tea which you can taste and I don’t know how they do it but you can taste the rum and the butter… yum,yum,yum how can you not like that! I am pretty sure that this is going to have to be on the re-buy list!

I wish I could find a good rum black tea- no butter.

Cofftea, may I ask why no butter? To me this one just kind of adds a creaminess to it… and a bit of richness to the tea!

Cofftea

Because I don’t like it. The thought of drinking butter makes me gag. A butterscotch tea I could do, but absolutely no butter flavored teas. I don’t even like teas w/ a buttery quality from the tea itself like Chinese Sencha and some whites.

Fairyfli

I see I can understand it is kind of weird to think about!

Liquor: Very dark and rich, clear.

This was the first tea in my advent Calendar. It reminds me of buttered rum life savers. A good black tea base, buttery goodness- it’s like a refined desert without the calories!. I didn’t taste the rum, but that may be due to the amount of milk I added. I’d definitely drink this again but I don’t know if I’m going to make it a staple in my cupboard.

I love that you got an Advent Calendar. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in it and what you think :)

Day 1: Advent Calendar. I can say I was happy to see one of my favorite blends in this primary position. When I first started my DT journey this was one of the first teas that I tried. Being a London Fog latte fan I liked the rich flavor and familiarity that the blend brought for me. Coconut is often a win for me as well. The scent and sweet taste is almost like a blanket of warmth without the kick of strong caffeine.

I took this with me on a trip to West Edmonton Mall one year and it felt like being at home in Victoria. Very soothing and brought a smile to my face. And my mother’s face too since she was with me at the time. She is a big fan of “Blueberry Jam” and the more fruitier teas so it was a pleasant surprise to see her reaction to something like this.

Good memories, rich nuances. What better, wouldn’t you agree?

Ahhhhhhh this is like those buttered rum lifesavers I loved as a kid, delicious. So glad I got this on a whim.

Calla

One of my faves ( there a many) from David’s Tea. I love brewing this one up in a pot when I need to do some major homework or study session.

Well this tea is MUCH better as a latte!

I remember having this tea plain, as a take away tea and I promptly threw it out! It had a “burn and astringency” that I could not handle. Since trying it again as a latte I am sold that this tea is what a Fall Latte should taste like!

Have you tried making this at home? I find that most teas I take away from DT I don’t care for, but when I buy some and try at home, I love them.

MaddHatter

I have to wait for October 14th. I hope it comes FAST! I know I am buying a Full tin of Glitter and Gold, I might get a full tin of this one too, since I have 5 empty DT tins.

Steeping this tea, I was reminded of LifeSaver’s butter rum candy. The smell, to me, is just about the same! The taste is of coconut and vanilla with a slight creamy finish. As it cools, the tea turns significantly more buttery and creamy. Absolutely amazing! I can’t seem to get the image of LifeSaver’s candies out of my head.. this is THAT candy flavor in TEA form! This tea is so sweet and delicious, I have already had 3/4 of the cup without noticing! I really wonder what milk and sugar would do to this tea. I feel like it would be beyond sweet, almost like a piece of toffee. Drinking it so quickly, my stomach catches up with me to realize just how RICH this tea is. This would be perfect for satisfying any sweet cravings!
The biggest hug to ladykittykat for sending me a sample of this. I have quite a few more samples to try and think I’ll indulge all afternoon and evening while writing three papers for class!

This is one of our favorites, in fact, we’re almost out! It’s the one I use to convert everyone I know over to the dark side of looseleaf tea. Glad you’re liking it!

So far this is my go to hot tea in my modest, fledgling collection.

The smell of the dry leaf alone — vanilla and coconut — is enough to make one’s mouth water. There are large chunks of vanilla bean (I wondered what the bark-looking pieces were so I stuck one in my mouth only to discover it’s a piece of a rather large vanilla bean) and shreds of toasted coconut. Pretty blue petals that the box informs me are cornflower peek through the black tea leaves.

1st steep at 4 minutes with near boiling water gives a dark brown liquor. Stick your nose in and you might find it smells more like tea, less like coconut and vanilla. Ditto for the taste. Coconut is there but I think this one is a 3 minute steep for me.

2nd steep is more coconut, less tea, but somewhat watery. Would never steep this 3 times. Brown tasteless water is not my thing. :)

Throw in a sweetener of your choice and some booze and Bob’s your uncle.

I’ve been really enjoying this tea straight lately. Today I decided that since the sun is out plus the fact that I brewed a pot of this in the morning and no one else wanted it, I put the rest in the fridge for iced tea so it wouldn’t go to waste. It’s very nice as a cold drink too, flavours are more mild though; but very thirst quenching!
