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!

    Oh my I need this tea!


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!
