Where To Buy: David’s Tea
Yo ho ho-conut
Hot buttered rum is so delicious we want it all day long. Unfortunately, most employers frown on workplace drunkenness, so we came up with this rich and creamy alternative. Toasted coconut and vanilla beans mingle with black tea in a caramelized caress of flavours. Decadent hot or iced, it also blends perfectly with dark rum, brown sugar and a dash of milk – so go ahead and indulge your inner pirate, off the clock.
Buttered Rum Tea!? I’m In! I should have posted this one on a Friday because it’s just THAT kind of tea! It’s wild and crazy but also a nice tea to help take your troubles away after a hard day or week, even!
At first sip I could totally taste the rum comparison! After my first sip I started to notice some other things! I could taste the vanilla as it cooled a bit but found it to be a bit peppery the colder it got, actually. This wasn’t a bad thing at all! I think it contributes to that warm rum type taste without it actually being warm in temperature…sort of like rum would warm your throat as you swallowed it.
I also LOVE the coconut in this! It completes the cup! The buttery notes are wonderful, too! If you ever have the opportunity to try this…please do! If you are looking for a company to purchase from – David’s Tea has a nice selection!
