Parade of flavors
I add brown sugar with joy
Coconut truffle

Our fourth tasting tea, after a brief spat of playing dress up and going out to lunch.
This was a parade of flavors. First and foremost there was a definite black tea flavor followed by creamy cocoa, coconut, and the rest. Afterwards, a tea and husk flavor sits in the mouth with a breath of coconut. (And by breath of, I mean I taste it in my breath.) A bit of brown sugar added blends the flavors together so they’re a party instead of a parade. The molasses brings out the cocoa and coconut meat flavors. A bit of milk is a terrible idea, as it drowned everything out.

The second steep was drinkable, almost good. I wouldn’t try another. The liquor had a strong coconut scent, but none of the flavor. The sweetness of the honeybush was gone and there is a bitter edge that really brings out the tea flavor above the cocoa.

Flavors: Cocoa, Coconut, Tea
