From Plum Deluxe

If you like a good coconut black tea, then you’ll love our Coconut A La Creme black tea blend. Creamy vanilla, fresh coconut pieces, and the crispest Ceylon black tea out there all come together for a tasty and invigorating cuppa. Great without anything but we do love a hint of cream (this tea is dairy-free otherwise) or making a tasty coconut latte.

INGREDIENTS:
Black Tea, Coconut Pieces, Vanilla & Coconut Essences, Calendula, Love, Gratitude.

I’m not a huge coconut fan usually. The coconut here definitely hasn’t gone off, but it’s just more generally soapy than I’d like. I feel like milk improves things. Yeah, coconut creme is a pretty accurate name. The flavoring is a little fake for me, and the black tea itself isn’t too delicious hot. As I continued with the cup, I did end up enjoying it. It all went together pretty well once it cooled; I guess I just didn’t love it hot.

I remember this being one of my favorites from the advent… then realized perhaps I just need to have fresh coconut tea instead of always stashing my orders more often.

Yeah I always stash my orders for a few months before I get around to trying them, but I open the coconut ones quickly just in case. Even so, I’ve had to throw out two teas in the last year ):

Latte Sipdown (302)

Squeaked in my 28th sipdown. This is leftover from the advent I received late and since it’s coconut, figured it was best to finish it sooner rather than later. It’s a coconut black. Had this 10000x before so it’s nice enough but nothing to write home about.

Plum Deluxe Advent Day 13

I’m not really a fan of coconut in teas, with very few exceptions. But, I’m very glad to see something that’s not a rooibos today.
The coconut is creamy and sweet, but the black tea is pretty astringent and drying. I’ll [probably] get through this cup, but I’d definitely not purchase.

I agree, the base really took away from the creamy coconut flavor for me.

Plum Deluxe Advent Calendar – Day 13

Well, it’s nice to see a caffeinated black tea from this advent! I’m not a coconut lover, but I don’t dislike it either. It’s just not one of my favorite flavors. Dry, this definitely smells like coconut cream pie.

It’s fairly good. The coconut and cream flavors are nice, and overall they remind me of coconut macaroons (which I haven’t had in ages), or maybe those Brach’s coconut candies with the Neapolitan stripes. There’s a nice toasted note as well.

The base is unfortunately a tad bitter and overall just not very tasty. It’s tannic and a bit astringent which really takes away from the sweet coconut creaminess… :(

Advent Day 13

I do love coconut teas, but I rarely buy them anymore. Maybe if I had a smaller cupboard where my tea stash was manageable and I could drink it before it went bad, but that’s just not the kind of cupboard I keep. It’s a sacrifice. :D

Steeped up this tea is kind of one dimensional. I get creamy coconut enhanced by the vanilla, but that’s it. There is a little bit of an astringent twang and a rooibos dryness at the end. I’d love it if it were multifaceted and had additional flavors to play off the coconut. Lime, cinnamon, smoke and mango are flavors that come to mind that pair well with coconut. I recently made some vegan bacon from coconut shavings to use as toppings in salads and I can’t stop grabbing handfuls of it to snack on instead. I want a coconut tea that I can’t get enough of like that! This is not that tea.

Ooo, I love the dry leaf aroma of this one! Definitely smells like a coconut cream… I rarely buy coconut teas anymore just because it takes me so long to get around to drinking them, and the coconut has such a short shelf life before it goes rancid that I often end up having to throw them out before I even get to try them as a result, but it is a flavor/ingredient that I really love so it always feels like a special treat when I do have it in a tea.

The aroma wafting off my too-hot cup is still that lovely coconut cream smell; the coconut aroma has a bit of a toasty element, and the cream has lovely vanilla undertones. My patience is waning thin to drink this, but at least I have my breakfast of the matcha smoothie I prepared before bed last night and two pieces of toast slathered in PB and honey (I’m a simple person!) to tide me over while this aroma-steam plays games with my heart… Probably my favorite tea in the advent aroma-wise since the pecan one!

The flavor… I think my tongue is expecting something a little sweeter based on the aroma, but this actually has a fairly present black tea base mellowing that out a bit, where you can actually taste tea and not just flavorings: I’m getting some malt, oat bread, honey, and a very subtle hint of citrus from the black tea. It’s mildly astringent as well, adding a slight bit of dryness at the back of the tongue after the sip. While the flavorings aren’t bombarding the tea, they are pleasantly present, as the cup has a nice toasted coconut flavor, with slight vanilla taste that lingers on the tongue after the sip.

I really like this one! I think if I wasn’t just using their pre-selected servings and had enough leaf to tweak my cup a bit to see if I could smooth out some of the astringency, I would probably like this even more. I would, if we ever crossed paths again, also love to see how this would be with a dash of warm coconut milk.

Yeah I look at ingredient labels for all the teas I buy and put the coconut ones first in line. Even so, I had a DavidsTea with coconut recently that must have been rancid on arrival, which was very sad.

Mastress Alita

I know, I tend to never trust them anymore…
