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
Leaf Type: Black
Where to Buy: 52Teas
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.
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!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
