Tropical Black Tea from Tea Is Chi didn’t last in my stash for very long! There are several reasons why and I hope to cover a few of them in this write up today!
When I think of Tropical or Island locations I think coconut and/or tropical fruit and a minty-fresh breeze. Very few Tropical flavored teas seem to add that minty-freshness so when I saw that Tropical Black Tea from Tea Is Chi not only added a strong black tea base with sweet and nutty dried coconut paired with refreshing peppermint I was overjoyed to try it! Once I tried this tea – it didn’t disappoint! It actually went above and beyond my expectations not only in aroma but also in flavor!
The black tea base was sturdy enough to stand up to the coconut and mint it was paired with – as well as satisfy my own personal black tea base level of flavor preference. The dried coconut was top-notch! It couldn’t have been more perfect to the eye, touch and feel, and taste! It was sweet yet nutty and contributed to the overall flavor. Then there was the cooling, fresh, minty-goodness of the peppermint! The peppermint flavor packed a punch and was very nicely done. Keeping all 3 ingredients in mind – I was completely satisfied and pleased with this flavored black tea to the highest level!
Tropical Black Tea from Tea Is Chi really took this Tropical Flavored Black to the next level just by adding that peppermint to it. I sure hope other companies don’t shy away from adding minty-goodness to their Tropical Themed Teas…after all…what is a tropical atmosphere without a nice fresh breeze, am I right?
