I’ve had a sample pack of this for awhile, and after having a cup I don’t know why I waited so long to try it. This is a beautiful blend with delicate petals in the prettiest shade of pink mixed in with the tea leaves. The coconut flavor really comes out if a little sweetener is added, and also once it has cooled down. It reminds me of a mounds candy bar, and just in time for valentines day!

-Dry blend has black tea leaves and small pink amaranth petals. Petals float to the top during steeping.
-Dry leaves smell of rich chocolate and coconut. Tea liquor aroma is of vanilla with a hint of chocolate.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium brown color.
-Malty vanilla flavor with a wispy coconut chocolate finish.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. Chocolate covered coconut flavor.

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

Thanks so much to JenW for sending me a sample of this… It is so good… I think I may have found my ideal chocolate coconut tea. It smells great and is just really beautiful with the pretty little petals in it.

If you like coconut you must try this tea it is wonderful, the smell is a bit like hot chocolate with coconut. The taste taste is bit more coconut with a nice chocolate after taste, but you can still taste the tea at the end as well! Anyways this is a great tea and thanks again JenW for the tea! This is going on my shopping list and will be buying from them in a bit!

I always have to do a search for this on the website as it is not with the other flavored teas. If you wanted sachets, I think they will be back in stock in a few weeks. Otherwise, you have to order a pound….

Another one from TeaTiff! Oh, man. This is amazing. It’s coconutty, chocolatey, a little bit fruity and a little vanilla-y. It ends up being like a surprisingly juicy dried coconut (…does that make sense?) with a long-lasting chocolate aftertaste. It’s kind of like if you took a chocolate-hazelnut spread but replaced the hazelnut with coconut. Funny how I love coconut in tea so much! I’m not even the biggest fan of it by itself.

this tea smells very good.
I had a mega tea tasting with my sister yesterday. I hope to have another one soon.

Since this is almost the last day of the year there is a lot on my To Do list I’d like to get done.
Wish me luck!
Maybe I’ll just throw everything into the garbage and be done.
Do you ever wanna just move to a cabin?
Like leave everything behind and see what it’s like to start from scratch?
I’m not feeling destructive, it’s just what the beginning of a new year will do to my mind.

My first tea from the traveling tea box. Life has been pretty crazy the last few months and I’ve not had much variety in my tea-life. I took a summer school class so I could make sure I graduate in December, and I submitted my application for graduate school today. I’m keeping my fingers crossed! I also have a big job opportunity on the horizon that would really help my career as a librarian, but it will mean I get more busy for awhile instead of less busy. Worth it, I think.

I’ve been wanting to try this tea for awhile now, thank you Josie Jade for including it! This has a lovely dark chocolate taste without being overly sweet, and a hint of coconut. This has a really creamy feel to it, nice treat for an afternoon. :)

I have SO many new teas and samples right now it was so hard to choose my morning tea today! Not a bad problem to have mind you ;)

Anyway, this is really hitting the spot this morning. I am getting more coconut flavor than anything else, but I’m really liking it! Its subtle but not in a bad way. Nice and creamy too. Thanks for the swap Yssah!

Harney has some terrific stuff for incredible prices, particularly if you’re near one of their stores

Backlog from yesterday.
This kind of reminds me of Florence, probably because both have chocolate flavouring. The main difference is that this is a creamier milk chocolate, which is likely because of the coconut flavours. Good balance between chocolate and coconut, and quite tasty overall.

thank you Yssah for a sample of this one with my Harney order! This is supposed to be a coconut chocolate blend, even though there isn’t chocolate or coconut in the blend. There are some pretty flowers though! After a three minute steep, the black tea flavor is very mild. It’s hidden under the sweet and smooth coconut. And I think I forgot there was supposed to be a chocolate flavor at all. The chocolate is lighter than the coconut. I like this one, but it isn’t a must-have in the cupboard staple. Luckily, I’ve got just one teaspoon left, which is good enough for me!

Got this as a sample in my recent tea buy from here.

I’m not wowed by this tea, and as usual not sure if I’d actually buy it as a tagalong if I could find one…maybe as a sample pack. This definitely tastes better hot, because when it cools, it just tastes kind of bland with bitter chocolate and coconut coming up as an after taste. Some people I guess like that…I usually prefer my flavors to be up front…not quite in your face, (Though that can be fun too.) but enough that you can’t deny it’s presence. I’d only do this as a pot if it was with a friend, and a small pot at that.

I’m drinking my second steep of this right now so I will have to update later once I have a fresh sachet of this. 98 degrees C but for 3 minutes or so, probably could have done longer.

Second steep is obviously weaker, but I was still impressed at how full bodied it was.

After being spoiled by DavidsTea’s dessert blends, this one falls a little short in my opinion. It’s not the strongest tasting chocolate coconut tea I’ve ever had, but it is good. I’d say the best chocolate tea I’ve tried so far is Davidstea’s Red Velvet Cake, which doesn’t have coconut in it but is very flavorful.

After reading other reviews for this one I decided to add a bit of cream and sugar (coconut sugar) to this cup, it really did enhance the flavors! I can taste the chocolate and coconut much better, and the creaminess of the vanilla. I bet drinking the first steep like this would be even better .

Based on that I would rate it well, but with other dessert teas I’ve tried, they tasted true to name without adding anything, so that has to bring the rating down a bit.

I do like the base of this, as with all Harney and Sons black teas I’ve tried.

I would consider buying some of this loose, to refill my tin later. I purchased the sachets because i love the pretty tin they came in!

ETA: when I opened my tin for the very first time and stuck my nose in, it was like smelling heaven! Too bad it didn’t quite taste as amazing. But the small amount of cream and sugar really brought out the taste so i am enjoying this one and would probably buy again :)

I have never heard of coconut sugar. Sounds really good!

whatshesaid

It’s made from the coconut palm leaf I think, anyhow it’s a “healthier” alternative to real sugar and doesn’t taste too different! Similar to brown sugar I think :)
