From Tin Roof Teas

White beaches, crystal clear water, the rustle of palm leaves, Caribbean music in the background, sun-tanned skin and a happy mood… The pleasure of chocolate and coconuts would bring to perfection the picture of a good life, “le bon goût de la vie”. To be brief, Bon Tea… chocolate and coconut included! Enjoy this tender, creamy creation with, or even without, Caribbean music. It’s worth it!

Ingredients: black tea (65%), chocolate chips, powdered cocoa, white chocolate chips, broken cocoa bits, coconut flakes, natural flavoring.

Whoosh! A whole pot all by myself! Well, I drank it by myself in that no one else had any, but I wasn’t alone. I enjoyed a nice Sunday morning with my godson who is visiting from college, chatting about the future and life-purpose, thankfulness, and living purposefully, loving and serving others. What a great young man! If you are ever having the “what is the world coming to?” blues, ask him to come over!

The tea: lots of good sized pieces of coconut are in this blend. The black base reminds me a lot of Harney’s straight chocolate tea, but this isn’t really tasting exactly like Soho Blend to me. I think Soho has a little additional flavor, maybe vanilla? Or something floral? It has been a long time since I have had it, but I think when I restock it will be with Soho.

I like this one mixed with TRT marzipan blend, yummy!

ashmanra

How did I miss seeing that one? Is it a black tea blend?

Your gs sounds wonderful! I always feel a little more hopeful about the condition of the world after spending time with my fifth graders…this year’s crop is growing some boys who are going to make wonderful, caring men someday.

And the tea sounds pretty lovely, too!

Josie Jade

They pointed the marzipan out to me one time when I was there, and I was hooked (I love marzipan!) I almost never try mixing teas together on my own, but the sales girl suggested this with the bon bon and it’s one of my staples. :)

Sigh. Well, I will be back soon. I can get some then! I did go to Penzey’s and buy some almond extract. I have been putting it in my vanilla shakes. :)

Josie Jade

Oh, that sounds good. I will have to try that, I love anything almond flavored! I always use a little extract when I’m baking.

Sipdown (202/206)!

Thanks VariaTEA for the sample (and I think Josie Jade by extension?), but I really wasn’t all that impressed, and I kind of knew I wouldn’t be just based on the smell.

This one smelled like really high quality, fancy ass rich people soap. Which, yes, is totally a thing. It’s always like overly complex flavours like “Cocoa Shea Butter with sea Salt and Coconut bits” and shaped into ridiculous things like a sea horse or an open clam with a pearl inside. Is a simple “bar” not good enough? Thing is, as far as soap goes it smells pretty fucking phenomenal – but when you get down to it, it’s just soap.

That smell really carried into the taste as well. Rich, extravagant flavours but bottom line – it was soap. I honestly felt like had I poured it on my hands I could have lathered up with it. No one wants that from their tea…

VariaTEA

I hoped you would have better luck with this one but unfortunately it does not seem as though that was the case. It sounded good in theory though.

Josie Jade, I am so sorry as I know you like this one but it is not for me at all. I am finding it cloying and the coconut tastes off to me. I tried to get through it but it got dumped. Thank you for the chance to try it as it sounded amazing but it just seems that this tea and I are not compatible.

This tea was one of the first ones that I purchased from Tin Roof Teas, and it’s remained a favorite. I love chocolate and coconut, and this tea has both! It’s a pretty blend with large flakes of dried coconut, cocoa nibs, and small pieces of white and dark chocolate. The tea itself smells of black tea and chocolate. The flavor is nutty, with a sweet chocolatey finish. This tea is really good when mixed with Tin Roof Tea’s Mazipan blend, ah-may-zing!

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves and twigs, large flakes of dried coconut, cocoa nibs and pieces of white and dark chocolate. Coconut and chocolate float to the top during steeping.
-Dry leaves smell of coconut and chocolate. Tea liquor aroma is of black tea and chocolate.
-Tea liquor is a cloudy dark brown color.
-Malty coconut flavor with a sweet chocolatey finish. Slightly creamy mouthfeel.
-Best with sweetener. Milk optional.
-Excellent tea. Perfect chocolate and coconut flavor.

Have you ever had Soho by Harney? Future son-in-law loves this but wants sachets and I was wondering how they compare…

Josie Jade

Hmm, yes I have had Soho, and remember that I loved it. I rated the Bon Bon higher than the Soho, but that may be because I’m so partial to Tin Roof Teas (but I favor Harneys too. . .) The Soho seems to have the addition of vanilla, whereas Bon Bon is just straight chocolate and coconut. The coconut is definitely stronger in the Bon Bon, in my opinion. The Soho is a good option if he wants sachets, and it’s basically the same with some vanilla added. :)

Josie Jade

I think the Soho was more of a candy like sweetness (like chocolate covered coconut), whereas the Bon Bon seems to be more authentic coconut flavor mixed with chocolate. If that even makes sense, ha! You have me thinking about this now. . .
