A Sorority of Sisters Who Love Tea

On the 3rd Day of Christmas … from 52Teas

December16

This sampler package has been so much fun, and I have only just begun!

As you can see by the photo to the left, Santa is being a bit of a meanie and won’t stand for even THINKING about opening the pouches early.  Does that mean that because I did, I’ll be cast upon the naughty list?

But while I did certainly think of opening the package early, I didn’t.  I am finding it to be too much fun to wait until morning and open the package!  I can’t remember the last time I was so excited to open a package of tea in the morning – much less brew it!

Not that I don’t enjoy brewing tea – I LOVE IT.  But, to say I’m not much of a morning person is an understatement!

Anyway, let’s get on with today’s tea, shall we?  Today’s mystery tea is…

COCONUT CREAM PIE

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Black

Where to Buy:  52Teas

Product Description:

Our Coconut Cream Pie flavored black tea has been one of our bestsellers here at Zoomdweebie’s since we opened. In addition to the pouches of this tea that we’ve sold, we sell a LOT of beverages made from this tea, in particular, this is probably our all time bestselling iced tea latte, one sip of which has led people to exclaim, “That’s like coconut cream pie in a glass!” I’ve also been frequently challenged on our assertion that our tea lattes are all fat-free, particularly with this tea.

It is simply so decadent, so wonderfully sweet and satisfying, that people cannot believe that we didn’t just liquefy a slice of coconut cream pie and serve it to them in a glass.

For the 52teas version of this tea, we are adding some honking-big flakes of unsweetened coconut to our premium black tea blend along with coconut and vanilla flavors. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and I promise that next week, we’ll get back to more creative pursuits.

Taster’s Review:

Yay!  This is certainly one of my favorites from 52Teas, and for good reason.  It is very true to its name – it really tastes like coconut cream pie! – and I love coconut cream pie.

As you can probably safely guess by now, I have previously reviewed this tea.  But while it is nice to come across a tea that I’ve not tried yet (like yesterday’s Chocolate Chai), I am loving this opportunity to revisit some of my favorites.

My opinion of this tea hasn’t really changed; I therefore see no need to reconstruct my review of it.  I will simply say that this is delicious!  Sweet, creamy, and smooth.  It makes an incredible latte, although I find it just as nice without the “latte” and served with a shortbread cookie.  The one thing this tea lacks is the pastry crust of the pie, so a shortbread cookie completes the dessert!  It would also be quite nice with a piece of biscotti, if you have it!

However you choose to serve it, this is one tea that I highly recommend.  It is absolutely yum!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
