Tea of the Week for November 14, 2016!

I just wanted a tea that was coconut-y and a little bit smoky. So that’s what I did.

Sometimes, that’s what my inspiration is all about. I wanted a coconut-y tea and I thought that the combination of a lightly smoky tea with the creamy, sweet coconut flavor would be really interesting.

I started with a blend of black teas – a rich, malty Assam; a smooth, medium-bodied Ceylon and a tippy, robust Yunnan. Then I added just a teensy bit of Lapsang Souchong to give it a hint of smoke. I wasn’t going for a heavily smoked tea this time around – I didn’t want an overpoweringly smoky presence – just enough smoke to add some contrast to the silky sweet coconut flavor. Then I added a bunch of huge shreds of coconut.

The result is a sublimely yummy cuppa that you’ve gotta try. Sure, it might be a little on the ‘usual’ side especially when compared to some of the teas that we’ve made in the past but it’s no less delicious. Sometimes – going with something a little more ordinary can lead to extraordinary results!

This tea is vegan, gluten-free and all organic!

organic ingredients: black teas, coconut and natural flavors.

Sipdown (310)!

Thanks VariaTea for this tea! I was curious about it, but not enough to buy it when it came out so this is a good opportunity to sate that curiosity. Turns out, I missed out by not buying it because this is actually REALLY good.

I expected the smoke notes to be a lot stronger, but this is actually pretty sweet with lots of fresh tasting coconut notes! It’s very light, all things considered and I enjoy that it reminds me of sweet, buttery coconut pastries! The smoke is present too, but it’s more of a soft, subtle smoke that creeps in from the back of the sip and slowly builds upwards – though not penetrating the top notes at all. It’s both an interesting compliment and contrast to the coconut notes…

Definitely one of the better coconut teas I’ve had in a LONG time.

ooooh. another sample from evol ving ness this one is tasty too! haha I really like the balance of smoke and coconut. I’d be worried about this going rancid if it wasn’t sipped up quickly, but this is rather tasty. It’s mostly a coconut brew, but the base is smooth and obviously slightly smokey, but not overpoweringly so :) thanks evol!

It’s about a month or so old, Sil, so maybe it still has a few days shelf life. :)

I brewed this tea and then went for a walk with the puppy and now I am drinking the tea. It’s cold but creamy and the smoke is quite strong. It is nice though quite a niche flavor that I probably wouldn’t reach for that often. I enjoy it but I will also be okay with saying goodbye when the time comes.

I spent the day drinking multiple steeps of oolong from last night. It was delicious and the leaves were not quite spent, but I had had enough. I cold steeped the leaves for tomorrow. We’ll see what happens.

As the day drew to a close, I was craving a black tea before my caffeine cutoff point: not any particular one, just something frisky and black and delicious. This fit the bill though it is totally a surprise as it is my first cup of it. The name pretty much sums it up: creamy and sweet smoky coconut, buttery and lovely. The smoke is on the gentle side, but definitely present. This one is a winner.

I wonder whether I can manage a second steep before my tea deadline approaches.

When’s your caffeine cutoff? Mine’s usually at 3-4 pm

Mine is usually 7pm, but sometimes earlier if I am going through a period of poor sleep.

This is very coconutty and creamy. Really good morning cup of tea. The smokiness is so slight, it really is more of a light counter-balance to the creaminess. The whole tea is just really smooth with no bitterness or astringency and great flavor.
