From 52teas

I was pretty excited when people asked that this tea be included in the vote for the 2016 12 Teas of Christmas, and even happier when this tea turned out to be one of the top vote getters. This has been one of the more memorable 52Teas blends for me – I love coconut! – so I was really happy to have the opportunity to reblend it.

The original description of this tea said:

Our Coconut Cream Pie flavored black tea has been one of our bestsellers here at Zoomdweebie’s since we opened. In addition to the pouches of this tea that we’ve sold, we sell a LOT of beverages made from this tea, in particular, this is probably our all time bestselling iced tea latte, one sip of which has led people to exclaim, “That’s like coconut cream pie in a glass!” I’ve also been frequently challenged on our assertion that our tea lattes are all fat-free, particularly with this tea.

It is simply so decadent, so wonderfully sweet and satisfying, that people cannot believe that we didn’t just liquefy a slice of coconut cream pie and serve it to them in a glass.

For the 52teas version of this tea, we are adding some honking-big flakes of unsweetened coconut to our premium black tea blend along with coconut and vanilla flavors.

So, obviously, I needed to change up the recipe somewhat because the black tea that I use is different from the ones utilized by Frank. I started with my black tea base of organic Indian and Chinese teas. I did use some “honking-big flakes of unsweetened coconut” as well as some vanilla beans and calendula petals.

This is very coconut-y, very creamy and oh-so-yummy! It’s been a while since I’ve had some of Frank’s version of this tea, but I’d say that I did pretty well with this blend! If my review of this tea is any indication – I think my black tea might be a bit stronger than the original version – but the other flavors are on point!

organic ingredients: black teas, coconut, calendula petals, vanilla beans and natural flavors.

Backlog…more later.

Ok, the more later part…

I just found this to be mild and lightly coconutty, but I think I had issues with my steep because I think my Timolino needed to be rinsed a bit more from the Fantasy Island that occupied it previously.

I think I want to get another brew and drink from my mug to get a better sense of this tea before rating.

This one is from CrowKettle, from our local tea crawl and swap this past weekend.

For the third tea of Christmas, Frank gave to us Coconut Cream Pie.

I clipped open my sample packet and instantly smelled coconut again without even having to put my nose down to the packet. I had just mentioned in my Pina Colada Honeybush tealog that that tisane made me want to try the Coconut Cream Pie and low and behold, here it is.

Like the Pina Colada Honeybush, the Coconut Cream Pie has large shavings of coconut against a background of black tea and smells delish — a strong coconutty, creamy scent. Steeped up, it’s a medium brown and smells like warm creamy coconut. It tastes strongly coconutty with a good sense of creaminess. Between this tea and the Pina Colada Honeybush, Frank has that flavor down pat. And yum, is this a good tea too. I definitely like it and look forward to drinking it again. But it is no Pina Colada Honeybush, which I have been thinking about drinking again since I had it. But I seem to be oddly hoarding it for later, not wanting to have no more of it yet. I am starting to wonder if all the rest of the samples will pale in comparison to that tisane, which isn’t really an apt thing to say because neither of these teas paled at all. They were quite good. Just not Pina Colada Honeybush good. It might have been a flaw to make that the first sample.

Back to the Coconut Cream Pie. (Sorry that I could not help making the comparisons.) So yeah. Chris and I went to one of our favorite restaurants (local, fresh, Southern food – for a rather late brunch (fried quail, biscuit and gravy, and eggs for me; pork belly, biscuit with honey, eggs, and sausage for Chris) on Sunday and they had coconut cream pie on the desert board (it changes weekly) and I really wanted to have some after having had this tea, but I was so full and couldn’t. We’ve been obsessed with fried chicken Tuesdays this month so you know where I’ll be early tomorrow night (yes, they actually run out of the fried chicken, it is that good) and hopefully the coconut cream pie will be there still. I’ll keep you posted.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention. I did do a second steep, which I was sure would be too weak to drink, and it was. But it turns out, even warm essence of Coconut Cream Pie is worth drinking.

I rated this tea a 74, which is right in the middle of my good range (70-80).

2nd steep: 7 min.

Southern Boy Teas

Why? Why did you have to mention and post a link to that amazing restaurant? I so miss southern food.

I grew up in Huntsville, AL (among other places in the south) where everybody went to eat breakfast at Eunice’s Kuntry Kitchen. Eunice and family had been feeding everybody in town breakfast for longer than anybody could remember. Biscuits and gravy, grits, southern hashbrowns and sausage patties with maple syrup….

We just got back from dinner, and I’m not remotely hungry, but that Glass Onion place sounds AMAZING.

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

Why? For comments like yours. ;)

It is a seriously good restaurant though. There is this place, Evie’s, in the part of town where my mom and sister live that sounds a lot like your Eunice’s. It’s totally unassuming and it’s been there forever too.

Used 1.5 tablespoons of dry leaf for 400 ml of water.

Brewed tea has a primarily black tea aroma with a hint of creamy coconut smell. Detecting a definite sweetness in the scent.

On the sip I’m getting an apricot flavour with trailing black tea flavour. Mild coconut in the after-taste. Maybe this tea was sitting too closely to the Brandied Apricot Upside Down Honeybush blend. Overall, the flavour seems to be that of a plain black tea but it was a quality black tea so I still was able to enjoy this infusion!

I’ll hold off from giving a rating for now.

Thank you Kittenna for sharing this with me!!

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

Uh oh! There should be a second cup’s worth in the bag, I think, so yeah, maybe leave it apart from the others for a bit? This one definitely should taste like a coconut black (if not with the cream pie aspects), and no apricot!


Also – 1.5 tsp to 400mL of water might be too low of a ratio. I usually use more along the lines of 1.5 tsp to 8oz./approx 250mL. That’s the ratio I use for all of Frank’s blends (and most other teas as well).


Thanks for the suggestions!! I will definitely keep an open mind for this one if I encounter it in the future- seems to have quite a good reputation on here :) I would imagine that this tea should taste more like how it smells.

I finally got around to trying this sample that was sent by Meghann. This is by far the best coconut tea I’ve tried. I love coconuts but artificial coconut flavors bother me. Anyhow I love the huge flakes of dried coconuts in this blend. Smells so delicious. The steep was a honey brown color. It had a smooth sweet taste to it. It didn’t need any milk or sugar but I decided to add them after a sip without. I am a sweet tooth. Great tea blend and a great alternative to the real thing – coconut cream pie. Now I want some real coconut cream pie.

This has got to be one of the best teas EVER. I just get blown away by this every time I drink it. I added a touch of cream and it’s heavenly.

I woke up in the mood for coconut and remembered that Jillian sent me a sample of this. 52 Teas isn’t joking when it comes to their coconut. Man, those coconut shavings are GIANORMOUS! The smell of the dry leaf is just wonderful. I was slightly tempted to eat one of the pieces of coconut…but I refrained this time. The tea was very smooth and flavorful. I noticed on the package that this tea included vanilla flavoring, but I did not taste any. Perhaps the vanilla flavor would be more prominent in the latte version. The oil from the coconut formed little globules on the surface of the tea. Mmmm! I wanted to try this tea with milk and sugar or perhaps whip up their latte recipe, but after quickly drinking my 1st cup (a true sign I enjoyed it), I found the tea to be a little weak. I don’t know if it would hold up to the milk and sugar…or the latte for that matter. Without the milk and sugar, I think this is just a regular coconut flavored tea, albeit a decent one. I promise to try it one day, but for now, straight up is just fine and dandy.

I made this tea yesterday. I tried a sip with nothing added, and wasn’t very thrilled. I added milk and sugar, which seems to be the norm for me and 52teas. Unfortunately, right about this time one of my roommates started talking to me. We got carried away with our conversation. The tea MUST have been good because I sipped the whole thing down pretty quick, instead of getting distracted and letting it get cold. Unfortunately, all my attention was on the conversation, so I didn’t notice much about the tea. I remember it being sweet for sure, and I don’t remember any definite coconut taste, so I’m thinking the coconut is probably more subtle.

I would just make another cup to properly taste it, but I woke up this morning with a cold and I don’t trust myself now to taste anything very well at the moment.

I coldbrewed this, and while totally delicious and coconutty, the base seemed a bit harsh. Then I came over to Steepster and saw “iced latte.” While the tea isn’t strong enough for that, I remembered I still have a lot of coconut creamer to use up in the next couple of days so I poured a good bit in. For once, I’m drinking a tea where it doesn’t matter if the coconut milk flavor comes through from the addition!

Definitely better now, but I still get something that tastes oddly smoky. I only recently bought this and I haven’t kept it with anything smoky, so I have no idea what caused this. It’s not bad, just seems out of place. Entirely possible it was picked up in the bottle even though I have no idea what would have caused it. But with the creaminess amped up, it’s less noticeable. This is definitely more like just coconut cream, not really getting any sort of crust flavor. Well, kind of, I’ve resorted to the butter cookies again, so I am tasting pie after all, but not solely from the tea.

Definitely will give it a try hot soon, and then properly make it an iced latte.

I received this in a swap from willworkfortea, thanks. It’s been on my shopping list for a while, but has now 3 times failed to be in an order, what was I waiting for?

The dry notes don’t smell much like anything other than a black tea, as it first begins to steep I do get some coconut smell, but after a total steep time it looses all the smell and smells like a black tea. :(

The taste is a nice smooth black tea, followed by a bit of cream & DELICIOUS coconut. This is the coconut tea I have been looking for. It’s also got that toasted coconut taste to it. I have the urge to buy some coconut milk to add to this. Oh yes, that would be so decadent.

This is a nice coconut tea. I don’t taste much cream, or any pie crust notes, but as a coconut tea it holds up pretty well.

I think I’ve realized I like tropical coconut notes (like in Buttered Rum, for example) better than bakey coconut, as in this tea. This one tastes like toasted coconut flakes and reminds me of a toasted coconut covered donut.

Most days I find it to be really tasty, but on others I can find it really overwhelming and it makes me feel a bit nauseous. This morning I made a perfect cup though and it’s suiting me just fine. 4 min steep seems to be just the way I like it.
