I tried this while I was in the store, and I was not impressed. I didn’t really like any part of this tea, glad I didn’t buy it before I tried it!

Have you heard tales of the wealthy Brazilian eccentric? According to local stories, he was completely obsessed with Brazil nuts, the source of his fortune. He insisted on having them in every meal – even his afternoon tea! Was it needless decadence, or a stroke of genius? You’ll have to taste it yourself to decide. This fabulously opulent blend combines black tea with whole Brazil nuts, raisins and coconut. Trust us – it tastes like a million bucks.
Ingredients: Black tea, Brazil nuts, golden raisins, coconut, natural and artificial flavouring*.

Another wonderful sample from my swap with Teatiff! I tasted this at first after the recommended 4 minutes of steeping and it was too bland so I steeped it longer. After over 10 minutes, it still tastes a bit bland to me, even with almost 2 teaspoons of tea for 8 ounces of water. Perhaps it is the brazil nuts that have a large volume and less tea leaves are making it into the cup? I did notice a bit of a sweet, artificial taste towards the back, but no real flavor.
I received a sample of Brazillionaire with my last DAVIDs TEA online order. I wasn’t super thrilled to try it in the first place as I’m not a lover of nuts (that’s what she said), so I wasn’t surprised when I thought it was just okay.
I will say that I really enjoyed its nutty scent, but the taste was a little too nutty for my liking. I also really enjoyed the sweetness it had and the fact that there was no strong black tea flavor to it.
For me, the nuttiness was really my only complaint, but since this tea is so very nutty, it won’t be one I’ll be purchasing in the future.
Still really enjoying this as a breakfast tea. The taste is lacking even with sugar compared to the original sample I had, though. Not quite sure what’s causing it. Maybe the huge Brazil nuts aren’t releasing a lot of flavor? I’m not sure. That’s really become my only complaint. I ordered a 50g bag of this from DAVIDsTEA and most of the Brazil nuts are HUGE. I have a quarter of the bag I ordered left and I got it a week ago. I’m tempted to crush them up to try to get more flavor out of them and more cups of tea out of what I have left, but I’m not sure it’s worth it.
Creamy, nutty, very much a comfort-tea. Mama Owl rather likes this one too. Have yet to try with Salted Caramel as per suggestion, but it does feel like its missing something.
This would be great to experiment with and blend with other teas… Buttered Rum.. Salted Caramel…maybe even a few chais. Hmmm.. the possibilities are endless…
I’m on a mission to drink and finish all my teas that are getting a little old. I found this one in the back of my tea cupboard today and I’m glad I did. I have to tell you though I am biased because I love anything with coconut and caffeine.
Dry Aroma: Toasted nuts with a hint of sweetness
Tea Aroma: It still primarily smells of toasted nuts. The black tea scent is in the background
Color: Deep amber brown
Tea Taste: Full bodied with a toasted nut flavor with a touch of sweetness from the coconut.
It does what it says it will. This was my first time trying a nut tea. (And I am super happy that the girl who helped me encouraged me to get 1/2 oz so that I could truly sample with a clear conscience) It is exactly what it should be. A nutty tea. Beautiful aroma. But, I’m just not a nut tea person… if I were I would have scored it higher I’m sure.
