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!

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.

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

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.

Sipdown! 280/365!

Came across this and because of the coconut, I decided – why not. All 3 or 4 infusions were fantastic – this is like a medley of my favourite (apparently) things in one tea. I love an EG cream, and the coconut just takes it over the top. So delicious. Upping rating from 91 to 95; I will need to acquire more of this in the future. Somehow.

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.

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.

Working on seeing where i’m at with my cupboard now that it’s August. Man time is just FLYING! figured i should try this one out since i have a few more 52 teas to add to my cupboard. Most know i’m not a fan of blergamot…it’s one of my arch nemeses….however i’m always up for trying blerg based blends in the hopes of finding one i love…someday. This is actually pretty good for an EG type blend. The coconut makes this a creamy cup of tea and helps to smooth out that blaring blerg taste that i dislike. If you’re a fan of the blerg…this is light in taste but it’s still for sure there.

Thanks for the share variaTEA! this was a pleasant surprise…though i certainly don’t love it enough to want more…since it’s still a blerg tea lol

Yes, yes, ’tis moi!

Oh, how I have missed you all and our steepster world!
(I must say, however, that it has been far easier to temporarily not buy more teas without hanging out with all you enablers though. :)

My wifi has been out for 6 weeks or more now . The first three days I was panicking and I was on the phone with my internet provider who then had to push through a ticket to the phone company. Long story. Is it the electricity? Is it the modem/ router? Buy a new over the top expensive one. Same issue. Essentially no signal. But because I don’t buy the telephone company’s wifi service—but my internet provider buzzes my connection through the phone line—the phone company does not care because the land line is fine. Yes, yes, I know no one else on the planet has a landline.

Anyway, the thing is that one needs a sizeable chunk of time to deal with these people —a four hour window or more wait for their phone calls. And then, another day and another four hour window for the phone company to come look see.

Seven phone calls and my health and I ran out of time and out of patience. For now.

For the next few days, I am house and kitty sitting for a friend, so I am hooked up with wifi, anyway. But I am using her computer, hence, a new account. Because passwords, oh hello. (Likely, if and when my wifi at home gets sorted, I’ll be back to my original account.)

Anyway, today I cracked this tea open for the first time and just yay! Vanilla loveliness gliding over the bergamot and frisky black base. The coconut softens all the edges. Beautiful.

This is just the second black tea I am drinking after a long long stretch of green and oolong. Smooth and lovely.

We JUST got rid of our landline! We had the same number for 24 years but eventually got almost exclusively spam calls.

I never answer it, or at least rarely. Good to have though—especially when the wifi goes out. I am now considering whether I need wifi at home at all. It’s been so lovely to have my days uncluttered by the urgencies of email and social media. I’ve even read books.

Sil

Glad to hear you’re ok…as you’ll see both Anne and I have been hoping all is well with you.

52Teas

Very good to hear from you! :)

Roswell Strange

Happy to see you back, and hear that you’re alright! Missed you! <3

mrmopar

I still have my landline. Hopefully you can get back running soon!

evol-ving

Thank you, guys. <3

LuckyMe

Welcome back, glad you’re still alive and kicking. 6 weeks without wifi is brutal…hope you get back online soon!

Teatotaler

I was wondering where you were. I missed your posts. It’s really great to have you back with us! :)

evol-ving

Thank you both. It’s great to be back in the groove and see everyone.
And talk about tea and life, of course. <3

Mastress Alita

I still have a landline… and no cellphone! (Yes, I’m going for a Guinness World Record on that one). My landline is Voice-Over-IP through my cable Internet service, though… which I couldn’t live without. 6 weeks!? I’d be going off the deep end after 6 hours! You have amazing grit…

evol-ving

Haahhahaha, after three days, I was fine. I even read complete books. That said, now that I have access as I kittysit, gritwoman hasn’t been offline for a second.

June Wedding! I still haven’t done an Earl Grey as my “something blue” (at least, I don’t think so), so here we go! Those pretty blue cornflower petals totally qualify!

I love everything about this tea… the aroma of the leaf has such a sweet aroma, it’s like a coconut creme dessert, with this citrus twist from the bergamot. But brewed up into a cuppa… This is hands down the best Earl Grey I’ve had to date, and may have a lot to do with my project earlier this year in adapting my palate to bergamot… a flavor I used to abhor. Because when I took a chance on this tea, everything was just perfect; it has a super creamy mouthfeel with a lot of natural sweetness, this really full, natural coconut flavor, and the sweet creamy coconut blends so well with that normally sharp/biting citrus bergamot flavor to mellow it and compliment it in a way that the flavors together create this slight tropical note. The bergamot feels pleasant rather than overbearing like I get with so many other Earl Greys. Additionally, the black base is super smooth, with no bitterness or astringency… it’s just a really wonderful cup! I kept wanting to horde my little packet of this so I wouldn’t use it up, but since I know coconut doesn’t keep long, I’m finally at that point where I’ve told myself, “Sara, you are just going to have to enjoy it now, and move on.” I certainly wouldn’t want to risk the coconut going bad and lose the good thing I could’ve had… Man, if only this tea were a permanent collection tea! I really do mean it when I say it’s the tea that changed my whole mind about Earl Greys in general. (And despite it’s name, it’s one of the few that I don’t have to drink as a London Fog just to get down!)

Sipdown (639)!

So, I passed this one up when it originally came out because I wasn’t sure I wanted more bergamot infused things in my life and I wasn’t totally sure that I thought coconut would pair. Well, VariaTEA passed some along to me and now I have to admit that I’m really kicking myself because this was INCREDIBLE.

It tasted exactly like a very smooth, and sweet London Fog but with the addition of creamy, buttery coconut. The vanilla was the strongest note overall, and it was so good! Very, very rich and flavourful – like decadent Madagascar Vanilla. I should have known from past 52Teas experiences that it would be this incredible; I’m almost never let down by a 52Teas blend with vanilla in it! I also think that the vanilla deserves the credit for being the thing that really did make the coconut fit in with the bergamot. Vanilla and bergamot are such a good pairing, as are vanilla and coconut so vanilla just becomes this perfect flavour bridge to create a very solid trio.

I added just a touch of milk halfway through the cup to make this a bit more like a London Fog – it was equally tasty with milk but had a bit more body in terms of mouthfeel.

Honestly this was just… the best. I would 100% support a reblend.

It’s about time I opened this. The dry leaf is generously laced with chipped coconut and thankfully doesn’t smell soapy at all. No one needs rancid, soapy coconut in their lives. And then there’s the bergamot but it’s quite mellow. Not nearly as in-your-face as some straight EG and even some EGC blends can be.

I agree with VariaTEA that this is very similar to Herbal Infusion’s Marshmallow Snowflake Earl Grey, which was softer and more well-rounded with the vanilla marshmallow. In essence, this is like a cross between that and the original 52teas Coconut Cream Pie.

Smooth black base, fresh coconut, warm vanilla, and mellow bergamot all rolled into one. I’m having it with a splash of 2% milk but I’m itching to try it as a true latte. Maybe next time!

VariaTEA

Yeah, that’s my plan as well
