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.

So excited this finally got here! :) Today is an especially good day for tea, cold, dark and raining. So I’ve been snuggling on the couch with several cups of hot tea in a row. I’ve been looking forward to this one arriving in quite some time. Let’s get started.

Initial impressions are very good. The scent is lovely; both strongly of coconut but also of black tea. Probably smell about 50/50 of each, which is very promising. The coconut flakes are ENORMOUS, but in the way you’d want. Big enough that they promise to offer a lot of flavor, but not so humongous that you have to use a ton of scoops to get some leaf along with it.

The verdict?

Yummy yummy yum yum! :D It’s exactly what I wanted. I love black tea, I love coconut and this is a match made in heaven, heh. It’s deliciously sweet, but not so saccharine that you can’t taste the black tea base. I don’t generally drink flavored blacks very often, but I think this could easily become a tea I drink nearly everyday. This is also one of those rare special teas where the taste is more delicious than the smell. I’ll have to stock up on this. :)

This is a great coconut tea! I’m not sure whether I’m tasting pie, but that’s okay. The coconut flavor tastes more like toasted coconut versus the fresh coconut flavor found in tropical drinks. This holds up very well to milk and sweetener. Even steeping extra strong, I didn’t detect any bitterness. Prepared with lots of almond milk and stevia.

The last time I tried this tea was three years ago.. so I’d like to see what I think it tastes like now (not using the same leaf from years ago)! I’ve added a splash of milk to this cup to help make it a little more creamy.

Sipping… I’m glad that I did add milk because it does make it a bit softer and it works well with the coconut. For me, this is a coconut black tea.. not a coconut cream pie tea. I don’t taste any crust or cream.. but I am enjoying the milk and coconut combination. I just wish that the other flavors could come through so that it could truly be what it claims to be without adding anything extra.

When I saw the chunk of coconut, I thought perhaps I had gotten two of the pina colada rooibos! But, no, it is the lovely coconut cream pie! I’m happy because I wanted black tea, and I realized from the pina colada blend that I really like coconut flavored tea. Hooray!

The strongest flavor of this tea is coconut, but I also detected some custard flavors too. Very yummy and dessert-like just with milk. It’s not oh-wow-amazing, but I do like it.

I got this as my free pouch for being the 10 respondent with the right answer to the email quiz (thanks Frank!), and was very excited about it as I have fairly recently discovered that despite not liking actual solid coconut (it’s the texture I think), I LOVE coconut milk and coconut flavored things (thanks to Adagio’s pina colada tea). So getting this was quite a treat, and to celebrate I was determined to make a fantastic cuppa.

Since I happened to have some coconut milk left over from a curry recipe I figured what better cream-substitute for coconut cream pie tea then actual coconut cream (the nice thick part that separates on top of the coconut milk – Mmm mmm good!).

I made a cup of this according to the package directions, going with the longer suggested steep time to get maximum coconuty-goodness. The result neat was a smooth black tea with no bitterness and a delightful rich-sweet coconut-cream note. Now I’ve never actually had coconut cream pie, but I imagine this would be what it tasted like. I didn’t seen as much of a coconut oil sheen on the top of the tea as I have with other coconut blends, but the flavour definitely didn’t disappoint.

As good as it was plain, I just had to try it coconut-ed to the max, and added about a teaspoon of coconut cream. The result was fantastic. The coconut cream just punched the coconut flavour up and added more richness that complimented the sweetness of the tea very well. It was like a topical desert in a cup, and even my friend who stated he “wasn’t really into coconut” loved it.

Was very careful not to over-steep this today and it made a difference, but I still find this blend quite disappointing. It smells wonderful but doesn’t quite live up to expectations taste-wise. Good coconut flavour (there are real coconut pieces in the tea), but I don’t get any cream, vanilla or pie notes. It’s kind of just a coconutty black blend. Good but not great.

Ahem, sorry, had to get that out. There is SO MUCH TEA in this thing, it’s unreal. I almost couldn’t decide where to start… but then I saw this tea, which TeaSipper was so wonderful to include because she saw it was on my shopping list! _ I might be a complete and total noob for never having tried this tea before (as I understand, it’s been around a while), but I just haven’t gotten to it before now, and that’s all there is to it. :P

Anyway, I steeped this the usual way, one mug’s worth in my Teamaker from Teavana. I’m not certain I steeped it long enough, as it came out a little weak on the black tea flavor. I don’t exactly know how long it was steeping, as I set it to steep and then walked away to feed my cat. I came right back! It couldn’t have been much longer than a minute. Anyway, it wasn’t quite as dark as I thought it ought to be, so I stood there about 30 seconds more… and it didn’t change. So I, being impatient, stopped the steeping, sweetened it, and then paced like a tiger in a cage, waiting for it to cool enough to be tasted.

Like I said, the black tea flavor was a little weak (and the mouthfeel being a little too watery also seemed to indicate that I had understeeped it), but MAN, was that coconut packing a punch! The vanilla, too, was right there at the front of the sip, both in aroma and in flavor. WHAM! Right in the kisser! I could tell by the way the tea looked that it was going to have plenty of coconut flavor, as there were HUGE chunks of it all throughout, but I was very pleasantly surprised by the Camilla’s strong presence, as I find a lot of teas that say they have vanilla flavoring don’t actually have enough for it tone detected. I definitely am getting “pie” from this. I can almost taste that sweet meringue topping, and the graham cracker crust that’s been softened a little bit by the custard…

So. Yummy. :3

Stupid Autocorrect. I didn’t catch it changing my “vanilla” to “Camilla.” X-P


Your enthusiasm makes me smile! Happy first teabox! :D

Had a few sips of this at my bff’s place today, and she got this tea at the Victoria Tea Meet from… someone. (I occasionally crash her afternoons at home and do laundry and help out with snakes. Today she got 9 sand boas in, and they are so cute! We sexed them and separated them and did a whole pile of dishes. Kinda fun.)

It’s pretty good, but not what I’d consider excellent. Not really coconutty, but definitely baked goods-like. I don’t know the provenience of this tea, so the lack of flavour may be due to age. shrugs Not something I’d rush out and buy, but it was pretty good and I’d like to try more from 52teas.


Waaah. ;_; I want to buy more of this sooooo badllllyyy, but there’s none available right now. I bought right when he decided to not have permanent flavors anymore. sigh Mine’s almost gone, but I haven’t drank it in a few weeks ‘cause I’m scared of running out…

Ooooh I also want to try this one.


Did you get this in the mail today?


Oh, nevermind. I thought this was the Coconut Cheesecake which is this weeks tea.


Yeah, I just want to try this one :) I still have coconut pouchong at home right now, but I tend to like coconut teas.

When I read about 52 teas here I nearly swooned reading just the names in some cases and the reviews made me really want to order from them. I was disappointed when I went to the site to realize that some of the yummy teas I wanted to try were not available, that they mix up special blends and only have them for a brief period of time. I hope they bring a couple back.

Ok, when you open the pouch for this tea I’m telling you my knees buckled and I think I pushed my nose down into the leaves! Coconut Cream Pie is one of my favorite pies and the air was redolent with that creamy coconut aroma. I will caution you about one thing. I am always careful about steeping and rarely ever over-brew a tea, but I let this go for 5 minutes (It suggested 4-5 and I don’t like weak tea…) but WOW was that strong. I couldn’t even drink it. I poured half of it in another cup and added more water from the tea kettle and did a second infusion of the leaves which looked lovely and lighter and I poured it into a pot for iced tea today. With the over-strong tea in the cup and more hot water added the tea gentled down to a lovely flavor. So this was not the tea’s fault, but mine. Again, I caution you to brew for 4 instead of 5 minutes which I will do next time.

Once the above situation was worked out I had a really lovely cup of tea. Even too strong the coconut aroma was wonderful and finally the right strength it was just a delicious tea. I would definitely recommend it to coconut lovers and I think a little tea pouch of this would make a wonderful stocking stuffer for your tea drinkers in the family. Most of the companies have small sample sizes so I’m ordering a number of those to tuck in.

I hope you are all having wonderful teas and a happy holiday season ahead!
