Blueberry Coconut Black Tea!
Tea Description: I've had a lot of feedback from my customers who love my coconut teas. I've also had quite a bit of positive feedback about my blueberry teas. This month, I decided to bring two favorite flavors together in one tea.
And . . . WOW! this tea is so good. Lots of blueberry AND coconut flavor in every sip!
I started with a blend of organic black teas - Assam, Ceylon & Yunnan - to which I added a bunch of blueberries & coconut. That's it! A relatively simple combination that's been carefully balanced. The blueberries are sweet, juicy & just a little bit tart. The coconut is sweet & creamy. The black tea blend offers a solid background of flavor to support these two fruits. It's wonderful! It tastes AMAZING hot as well as iced! It's also organic, gluten-free, all-natural & VEGAN!
organic ingredients: black teas, blueberries, coconut & natural flavors
Loving this! LOVING it!
I knew I'd probably enjoy it because I love both blueberry & coconut, but I didn't know I'd love it this much. It's a really fantastic combination. The black tea is smooth & strong. There's a pleasing malty tone to it that plays nicely with the creaminess of coconut. The coconut is sweet & smooth. The blueberries are sweet & just a wee bit tart. That tartness brightens the cup just a little. There's also that nice tingly berry note in the aftertaste. It's quite simply - LOVELY!
I have tried this twice now, once as a hot tea, again as an iced tea. It tastes great both ways - so it works whether you're craving a hot beverage or a cold refresher.
to brew: start with 3g of tea and 12 ounces of freshly filtered water, heated to 205°F. allow to steep for 2 1/2 - 3 minutes. strain, allow to cool for at least 10 minutes to allow flavors to develop.
