drank Foggy Coconut by 52teas

1st Day of Christmas Teas

52teas, both original and new iterations, has always been on the ball with the coconut teas but this decadent take on Earl Grey strikes gold with me. Maybe it’s the mundanity of all the cookie-cutter London Fogs from Starbucks+ that I’ve been drinking recently, or my shrinking, increasingly boring tea stash, but this rejuvenated the tea latte for me. Who knew coconut and bergamot were meant to be together?

I sadly missed out on this blend the first time around but I’m glad it showed it up in this box. I may have to order more for the office when I’m craving a smart-casual tea!

+Sidenote: someone at work was smart enough to try a Starbucks London Fog with pumps of Gingerbread syrup instead of the usual, and that is a good combo too. I’d love to see that come a live in an actual dessert tea blend.

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

Subjective Rating System 3.0:

90-100: My absolute favourite tea. I’ll impulsively buy in large quantities and hoard like a dragon.

85-89: A favourite tea. I’ll try to keep this one around when it’s practical.

76-84: A good tea, but not one I’m likely to order again.

70-75: Alright, but I may have a few problems with quality, consistency, ingredient chemistry and/or personal preferences.

50-69: Average to mediocre cup.

11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea. I don’t give a lot of these ratings out, since I tend to grab tea I know will appeal to me.

1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This tea is the embodiment of the primordial swamp, the unholy abomination that is a chimera. It’s very gross and I’m almost positive it doesn’t exist.
