Taster’s Review:

Yummy!  With my first couple of sips of this Coconut Macaroon Black Tea Blend from Compass Teas, I could definitely taste the coconut, but I wasn’t so sure that it was a Coconut Macaroon cookie that I was tasting, and with a name like “Coconut Macaroon” that’s what I expected to taste!

But after allowing the tea to cool slightly – it’s still hot, just not freshly poured from the teapot hot – I notice the flavors of Coconut Macaroon Cookie begin to emerge.

The coconut is definitely the star of this show, and since I love the taste of coconut, I certainly don’t have a problem with that.  The flavor is sweet and creamy … and coconut-y!  Beneath the prominent coconut flavor, I notice a sweet, nutty flavor that I attribute to the macadamia nut, although I can’t really say that it tastes distinctly macadamia nut-ish.  It tastes nutty, toasty, and sweet … but, it doesn’t stand out and say to me “I am Macadamia Nut!”

Then there is also a lovely bake-y kind of taste to this that ties this tea all together – truly making it taste a bit like a liquefied coconut macaroon cookie!  I think that this comes from not just the combination of flavorings used to create this blend but also the black tea base itself – which is pleasant tasting, with a certain robustness to it.  It is what I’d classify as a medium-strength tea … not overwhelmingly bold, but this is not a wimpy tea either.  It’s got a lot of flavor to it, and it holds its own in the midst of the strong coconut and sweet nut flavors.

Compass Teas has themselves a real winner on their hands with this tea!  I love it!
