Tea of the Week for October 9, 2017!

My inspiration behind this blend is one of my favorite coffee shop drinks: a London Fog Latte! I order mine with coconut milk and half the usual amount of vanilla syrup (otherwise, it’s just too sweet!) One day as I was sipping on this drink, I found myself contemplating the beverage. I love the way the hints of coconut play with the bergamot but I found myself wishing that the coconut notes were stronger. (I do love me some coconut!) I also found myself wishing that the tea notes were stronger – which I felt would be accomplished if it didn’t have so much milk product in it – but then, the coconut notes would not be present. Then the idea hits me: why not make my own version of this drink with these improvements in mind!

And here we have it: I started with a base of Assam and Yunnan for a rich, bold, malty flavor. Something that could hold it’s own even with the strong note of creamy coconut. Then I added bergamot – I didn’t want to go too heavy on the bergamot because I didn’t want the coconut and bergamot competing with each other. I wanted enough bergamot to be tasted but not so much that it would interfere with the coconut flavor. Then I added some vanilla bean. Again, not a heavy vanilla taste – just enough to lend creaminess to the coconut and soften the edge of the bergamot and strong teas.

Then I went coconuts! This is a strongly coconut flavored tea but there’s enough bergamot there to give the cup the flavor that I was going for – this cuppa is my ideal London Fog! It’s got lots of coconut flavor without the milk drowning out the flavor of the tea. No “latte” required here, there’s enough creaminess to the flavor. Of course, if you want to go latte, that’s OK – but I’d recommend trying it without first!

YUM! I love this!

I don’t generally love coconut teas- they’re generally weird and oily and often make my stomach turn. I’ve also gotten a bit burnt out on EG blends, so I wasn’t super thrilled to see this- but how mistaken I was. This is absolutely delicious. Such a fresh, bright coconut flavor, combined with sweet creamy marshmallow and just a touch of bergamot.

This is one of my personal favorites!

I can see why!

Kittenna

Me too! And I had just finished off my previous packet of it so was so happy to see it in the 12 teas of Christmas!

52Teas 12 Teas of Christmas: Day 10!

Bergamot is never going to top my list of favorite flavors, but dang—I enjoyed this one far more than I anticipated! The coconut creates a really gorgeous rich, creamy base to soften the bergamot… definitely the best Earl Grey I’ve had. I would never have considered buying an Earl Grey in the past, but I could actually see myself ordering more of this to have on hand.

Much happiness was contained in this empty tea packet. And now it is gone.

And it’s a sipdown!

Finishing off the last of my Foggy Coconut. It’s probably a good thing too. I’m not sure how much longer the coconut would have lasted. For now though, it’s still really good. Marshmallow and bergamot.

Tea Advent Calendar – Day 22

Now that the Christmas festivities are over, time to catch up on the last few days of my Advent calendar! I was SO excited to find this one in Sunday’s packet, as it has been on my wish list for awhile. I love Earl Grey and I love coconut, so this blend sounded like a match made in heaven! And sure enough, it’s delicious. I was a little worried that the bergamot and coconut would end up giving me soap vibes, but it was just creamy, coconutty deliciousness with just enough bergamot to keep things interesting. Lovely with milk!

365 Days of Tea Challenge – Day 14

The first tea to try from my modest first 52teas order! Anne was kind enough to make sure there was a sampler of this left for me to try after I asked about it. Thanks, Anne! And thank you for the bonus sample! ❤

I do tend to love Earl Grey blends with additional flavors, so this was a no-brainer for me. The base tea is malty but still quite smooth, especially for an Assam blend. There’s a light amount of bergamot, but still enough to make in an Earl Grey in my opinion. The coconut is the main flavor here, and it’s lovely and creamy with the added vanilla.

Coconut is not my favorite flavor, but I do enjoy it occasionally and this is definitely one of those times! I’m not sure if there’s added cream flavor here as well, but it definitely tastes milky, as a latte would. I’m sure it would be even more delicious with sweetener.

Very tasty! I’m not sure this is one I would feel the need to stock, as I’m not a coconut lover, but I’ll very much enjoy the small amount I have. :)

I did sign up for the 52teas subscription as well, so looking forward to trying that out starting next month!

Two of my obsessions in one pic. You just increased my heartrate. I was just looking at the new Malabrigo yarn at fabulousyarn.com but I spent so much on Lupicia this month, it’s out of the question >.<

Cameron B.

I got a gift certificate for Fabulous Yarn for my birthday, but haven’t decided what to get yet…

I’m not super interested in the new Washted, as I prefer plied yarn to singles.

52Teas

Oh my – I love your yarn collection! I love fiber arts – I got into needle felting for a while (before I started doing the 52Teas thing) and I loved it. Now I don’t have as much time for my other arts since taking over 52Teas, that’s become my art. I have always wished I knew how to either knit or crochet but I’ve never taken the time (or had the patience) to learn.

Excellent timing, 52 teas! For my 42nd tasting note, I will honor Douglas Adams. He loved tea and wrote some instructions for Americans new to London, to brew a good pot of earl grey. And he wrote about the number 42 in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy books. I’ve heard a lot about this tea from Sara, and my sampler just arrived today!

The leaf smells sweetly of coconut and bergamot.

Brewed, it smells very mild. The coconut and bergamot flavors have a nice, civilized balance going on. I don’t have a lot more to say about it, but it’s very pleasant and tasty. That mug of tea went down very quickly. I want to look up how to make a proper London Fog and try it that way next time.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Coconut, Sweet

So glad you enjoyed this. I love Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy!

Mastress Alita

Heh, I usually only make London Fogs with my… less reputable EGs. :-P Ones this good don’t need the milk, hahaha! (I’ve got a ton of Adagio EG I can spare if you’d like to learn, I make a pretty sweet London Fog…)

Todd

Oh, that’s the trick is it? :) This one worked pretty well in my attempt at a London Fog.

(52teas (Anne) 2022: 16)

Hello again, my dear delicious friend Foggy Coconut! I was so excited to see this tea in this (last) year’s 12 teas of Christmas! Anne has a knack for variations on earl grey, and I love many of them, with this one at or near the top. It tastes much like I remember, possibly a touch less harsh/less strong, but that could be a ratios thing too. Flavour is delicious though – light bergamot, creamy coconut. I’ll be savouring this package and the additional pouch I ordered as well.

This has a definite bergamot flavor without being overly present and sharp. I think the coconut softens it immensely. This tea has a lovely fragrance, but since I’m not a huge bergamot lover, it’s not my favorite. If you like bergamot more than I do, then you’d probably really like this one. I’m not going to numerically rate, since I’d personally probably give it around a 60 but I don’t think that’s a fair rating, if that makes sense.

Flavors: Bergamot, Coconut

Twelve Days of Tea 2021 – Day Ten

I was planning to savour this a little longer, but then my EG fiend of a sister came over, took one sniff and proclaimed “that one”! The bag got dumped into the biggest pot I have, and even my 1 1/2 year old nephew managed to gulp down large quantities of a lukewarm cup and loudly exclaim “TEA! TEA!” (He likes to come over and sniff all my tea. While we try not to actually give him anything caffeinated, sometimes when we aren’t looking he acts lightening fast…).

This is simply a hit. Enough said.

I pulled one of my old 2019 packets out to have this one this morning as well. Had a hankering.

Evol Ving Ness

Haha, even your one and a half year old nephew is a convert! Well done!

gmathis

Work friend of mine has a two-year-old grandson who already asks for his own cup of “peppa tea” when Grandma makes one.

CrowKettle

yes – seemed like the perfect day to pull out the Foggy Coconut.

@gmathis, That’s beyond adorable!I thought that some hojicha or “Forever Nuts” would be good starters for him; peppermint would be good too! He already seems to have a taste for EG though.. D:
