Coconut Black Tea
As children my brother Jim and I never liked the taste of coconuts. He and I always dreaded celebrating the birthdays of our brothers, Tim and Pete, because their cake of choice was always coconut cream pie, which meant we never had any of their birthday cake. Sometimes I wondered if they just chose that dessert because they knew Jim and I wouldn’t eat them. As a young adult I tried fresh coconut on a trip to St John USVI. That opened my eyes to the exotic taste that is coconut and I gained a new appreciation for all things coconut.
Whenever we make this blend in our store for people to try, their faces light up in delight and they always end up leaving with a small bag of this tea. It seems the world has more coconut lovers than just Tim and Pete. If you’re one too, I’m sure you’ll savor this exotic island taste.
Ingredients: black teas, coconut flavor and coconut pieces.
Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.
