From DAVIDsTEA

There’s nothing more nostalgic than a coconut macaroon. We’re not talking about the super-trendy French cookies here…for us, it’s all about the bake sale classic: chewy, golden coconut cookies dipped in rich dark chocolate. And with black tea, toasted coconut, cacao nibs, pecans and rock sugar, this rich, nutty blend is just as good as the real thing. The only difference? You don’t have to wait for a bake sale to get a taste.

Ingredients: Black tea, toasted coconut, coconut, pecans, cacao nibs, rock cane sugar, natural flavouring.
Contains pecans and coconut.

First off, thanks to Super Starling! for this sample.

I’m just going to come right out and say it. I think I used too much water in this one. I did about 1.5 tbsp and 16 oz of water PER THE WEBSITE DIRECTIONS so I wasn’t just winging it. Set the temp for near boiling. Steeped it for 4 minutes. The smell was pretty amazing. It made me want to eat the tea right out of the bag. However, I passed my civilized training course, so I controlled myself and just steeped it instead.

I was so surprised when I poured this out and it was a blonde yellow color. Didn’t see that coming. I feel though that my tea tasted a bit watered down. And that is probably my fault. I used more water than I normally would anyway because I was trying to follow instructions. The flavor was nice. I get some of that chocolate coconut. I really liked it… but I wanted more OOMPH. I imagine if I cut the water in half I could get that stronger, less watery flavor I am looking for.

The good news is that my dear friend is awesome and sent me enough to have multiple sessions so all is not lost. I’ll try this again at another time and adjust the rating as needed.

Flavors: Chocolate, Coconut

Super Starling!

Definitely re-try with less water (about 12-14 oz). Also, it’s safe to leave it in there for 5 or 6 minutes. (I am an oversteeping champion).

I knew as soon as I measured it out and poured it in there. I saw how much water appeared to be in the tea pot vs how much I normally eyeball and I thought, “Oh dear. That is far too much water. But, instructions ARE instructions.” Should have trusted my gut.

The first time I gave this tea a review, I gave it a 95, because I’m like that fussy teacher that doesn’t give out A+ ratings ON PRINCIPLE. Surely there’s SOMETHING wrong with this tea, I reasoned.
Wrong.
There is nothing wrong with this tea. This is the tea I have been waiting for. This is my tea.
This tea is like if the Bearenstain Bears were real, and adopted you, and gave you warm hugs and words of homey wisdom. You could hang out with Mama Bear and Papa Bear and Sister Bear and Brother Bear every day as their cherished Human Bear.
This tea is my Grail.
I am going to be depressed when they inevitably discontinue it without warning.

I would apologise for the quality of this review (I am slowly wilting from exhaustion today), but actually, it’s about on par with the reviews I usually write. I am either a trailblazer of tea review imagery and humor — or a complete idiot.
No comments unless they’re compliments, y’all.

Annnnd there is the award for most favorite review of all time. Berenstein Bears for life.

Super Starling!

It’s BerenstAin bears. I always thought they were Jewish, too. There’s an entire conspiracy theory about it:

Hahaha good call. I’m lucky I remembered that it is “bere” and not bear

I should have read the description on the tin better. Although it’s named Chocolate Macaroon, this tea is likened to a coconut macaroon, and I don’t like the flavour of coconut very much. (Coconut milk, on the other hand, is a delightful addition to stove-cooked rice and curries.)

I usually mix this blend with other chocolate-flavoured teas. (Once, I tried mixing it with matcha powder, and that was nice.)

This is a new tea for me. I bought it and made myself a cup of it the same night. It’s absolutely delicious! What a sweet (not toothache sweet) treat that tastes identical to an actual chocolate macaroon. I will keep this tea in my stash as long as David’s Tea sells it.

I got a hold of this one at last. So many people love it that I was sure I would too. But I don’t. It didn’t actually taste like anything. but the after taste was a bit weird. Soapy. It was a new cup that I had just hand washed. Maybe I didn’t rinse the cup well enough. I’m going to try it again this weekend. So I’m not going to give this a rating right now.

Aww, you can’t like everything, but I hope it’ll be better next time for you. FWIW, I find this one needs more leaf than average and a generous shot of milk.

Fay

Agreed, I find this one a lot better with milk.

Evol Ving Ness

Aww, this one is a bit tricky. I like it black as well, but I tend to underleaf and steep briefly.

TeaBrat

I was not a big fan of this.

At first I really enjoyed this tea. The taste of chocolate and coconut was nice. On my second and third cup I found I was dumping half the cup out because of the wired coconut flavour. I believe I have something against steeped coconut, even though I love the real thing. I will keep trying coconut flavour teas to see if this is true. On the other hand my boyfriend did enjoy this one more than I did. Would not repurchase.

Earthy. Smells like coffee. Strong. Nutty, strong chocolate taste. Not astringent. Can be used with milk.

I mostly drink this one as a latte, with a table spoon of raw sugar, and about a half cup of milk. Mmmm.

Chocolate and coconut-another combo that is out of this world. Second to mint chocolate for me. Smells heavenly and tastes just like a macaroon cookie. Yummy :)
