Co-Coconut Almond/A Quarter To Tea. . . .

Co-Coconut Almond is a tea by A Quarter to Tea that was featured in the  monthly subscription box. It is comprised of black tea, coconut flakes, raw almonds, cocoa nibs/shells, and mini sprinkles.

Steeping the tea using the recommended steeping parameters, I brewed it up as a latte and topped it with coconut whipped cream. Since the whipped cream was being rather uncooperative, I ended up with a fair bit more whipped cream than I wanted, though thankfully it complimented the tea quite nicely contributing a deliciously sweet and creamy coconut.

As for the tea itself, the main flavor for me is the almond which is smooth throughout the sip and then really pops at the end. I don’t usually love almond in tea as it tends to come off like marzipan as opposed to the actual nut. This tea does get a bit of a marzipan quality to it at the end of this sip when there is a pop of flavor but until that point, it is much more true to the nut itself and it blends nicely with the creamy coconut of the tea, another strong flavor. What I don’t get at all is the chocolate.

This tea did make for a nice latte and I think those who enjoy marzipan would love this, especially if they are coconut fans as well. As someone who doesn’t love marzipan, this was not my favorite but it was still quite nice.

Dark Coconut/Love Some Tea. . .

Coconut is one of those flavors that can be really good or really bad. Sometimes it can be creamy and delicious and sometimes it can taste like lotion. That is why I occasionally put off trying coconut teas even though I am a coconut fan. I am especially hesitant when I never tried a tea from a company before and don’t know what to expect. That is why this Dark Coconut tea by Love Some Tea has been hanging out in my cupboard for over a year despite the bright and colorful packaging consistently catching my eye.

Drinking this tea hot I am happy to report this falls into the really good coconut category. The coconut flavor is fresh and creamy. Deliciously true to tasty coconut with pastry/bread notes from the black tea base. The flavors together create a coconut macaroon tea. It’s smooth and it’s rich and I am pleasantly surprised.

This tea has definitely peaked my interest in Love Some Tea as this is one of the better coconut teas I have come across which is even more surprising given the age of this tea. Usually there tends to be flavor deterioration over time and this shows no sign of any flavor lacking. Just one great coconut tea.

Red, White, and Blue Black Tea from 52Teas

52Teas has some of the more creative tea flavors I’ve ever tasted, so when I saw my sample bag with a little American flag and a fun name like Red, White, and Blue Black Tea, I knew it had to come from 52Teas.

This blend features raspberries (red), coconut (white), and blueberries (blue), all mixed in with a black tea base. Even before brewing, the tea leaves were a colorful joy to look at. Brewed hot, the coconut and black tea were the most forward at first, very bold and buttery.

I used the 52Teas recommendation and let the tea cool for about 10 minutes before taking another sip.  When I returned to my cup there was much more flavor from the berries.  I tasted tart red raspberry and sweet dark blueberry, all swirled together with the lingering creaminess from the coconut.

Maybe I’m just thinking of patriotic summer days, but this blend would make an excellent cold brew.  It has rich fruit flavors for natural sweetness, solid black tea backing for body and robustness, and a touch of tropical coconut to lighten the mood.

If you’re not an American tea drinker, don’t let the flag theme put you off this blend, it is a great berry coconut black tea that will be sure to add some spring to your step as a hot morning brew or an iced afternoon treat.

Here’s the scoop!

Magicienne from Nina’s Tea . . . .

My tastebuds have taken several sabbaticals lately. Now that they have decided to get back to work, I plan to drink tea and savor every sip, catching up on what I’ve missed!

This green tea is a breath of summer today on this dreary day. The description on their official site says there is a hint of tartness, but it isn’t at all sour or astringent like many green teas. In fact, this is a tea i could easily chug, even from a teacup. The light briskness just makes me want more.

The primary aroma and flavor is coconut, with the pineapple coming in at a close second. The added cream flavor makes this a super smooth and creamy cuppa, a nice foil for the green base.

I am drinking it hot, but it is amazing iced as well, with or without sugar. I always go without! Now I am going to pretend I am on a beach, basking in the sun with a little umbrella in my drink!

This is available without the tin for a lower price, but spend a few extra dollars sometime and treat yourself to Nina’s beautiful red tea tins. I have a row of them on my tea shelf and they are gorgeous. Their Marie Antoinette blend comes in an exquisite pink tin – so romantic. Pour Maman is a perfect gift for a new mother, a Mother’s Day gift, or just because. Grand Amour is truly one of my great loves among flavored black tea and is a fun to give for weddings or engagements.

But the important thing is that Nina’s knows how to do quality tea and well-balanced blending. Even if you see a dozen flavors listed in the tea, it won’t be a muddy mess. It will be a beautifully blended cup of tea that leaves you wondering how the French achieve this level of mastery just as they do in their finest parfums.

Here’s the scoop!

Coconut Green Tea from LST. . . .Love Some Tea. . .

I love green tea, and I love coconut so I was pretty excited to try this tea. It was better than I could have hoped.

It’s a smooth green tea with a very slight smoky flavor, and an amazing coconut aroma and flavor. I could drink this delicious tea all day. It’s clean, and decadent. It has that kind of fatty coconut flavor, and I mean that in the best way. The coconut kind of cuts the earthiness of the green tea. I had mine warm and it was a wonderful way to wake up. I have a feeling this would be amazing iced as well.

This tea is perfect for anyone who enjoys slightly smoky flavors with a nice dose of coconut flavor. But don’t expect the overly sweet coconut flavor you get from artificially flavored coconut beverages. This is the real deal, real coconut flavor that is not cloyingly sweet at all. I bet this would also make a fantastic green tea latte with coconut milk, iced or hot!

I had never heard of LST tea before, but after trying this delicious tea I hope to try many more flavors. They are an ethical and sustainable tea company which in my opinion makes the tea taste even better!
