Any Almond Joy/Mounds fans out there?
This is what Coconut Dream (black tea) by Tealightful wants to be when it grows up. Amidst the black teas are satisfying chunks of coconut shavings, marigold flowers, and chocolate pieces. This tea without anything added is sweet, coconutty, and just might satisfy your dessert craving (cake for breakfast anyone??).
That being said, something in the tea, whether the coconut oil or oil from the chocolate does not emulsify properly in the blend. So what you get is a candy bar-like cuppa with a little bit of oil floating on top.
The flavor was enough to make this a decent blend for me, but the oil issue just kind of bugs me. I think this tea would be great to cook with or possibly adding some cream might help. I brewed it in boiled water for 3 minutes then drank it hot & straight on my way to work.
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Black Tea
Where to Buy: Tealightful
Sometimes you feel like a nut! If you crave coconut with your chocolate, you must try this blend of select black teas, chocolate chips, cacao nibs, and coconut flakes. Allergen Notes: contains dairy.
