From Dessert by Deb

Ah, lemon and coconut, a delicious combination of tart, creamy, and sweet that every dessert lover can appreciate! Deb loves both lemon desserts and coconut desserts the most (lemon squares and coconut cake?! YES PLEASE) so she decided to combine her two favourites into one fabulous black tea blend: Lemon Coconut Pie! With bright zingy lemon peel, shredded coconut, toasted coconut and vanilla, this blend is a yummy slice of heaven.

I like this one better than the other DBB lemon tea. It has a nice malty base, but that is the most prominent flavor. I get some coconut that makes it creamy, but I’m not getting much lemon. The coconut is harder to pick out once the cup cools. This tea doesn’t make me think lemon coconut pie.

Agreed. This is better than the lemon berry scone – both need more lemon though.

This was a free sample from my last order from Dessert by Deb for their Autumn collection. Deb was kind enough to let me pick the teas for my free sample, and I chose this one because I know Deb works with coconut in a lot of her blends but I typically try to avoid buying coconut blends – I figured a free sample was an excuse to not buy a coconut tea and still get to try it. Of her coconut teas, I was most intrigued by this flavour concept…

The dry leaf smell of this is amazing, and it made me really excited for the tea. It’s more coconut forward than lemon, and the coconut is that kind of buttery coconut that makes me think of pastries! In particular, these coconut buns that I get from a Chinese bakery I sometimes pass when I’m going to my local comic book store.

The steeped tea, impressively, doesn’t disappoint! My biggest fear, aside from lotion-y coconut caused from it being rancid (not that I expected Deb to sell rancid tea; it’s just one of THE WORST flavours when coconut does eventually turn), was that it would be too sweet and I’m really happy with the balance of this blend! The coconut is very buttery and a little bit creamy, and the result really does lean quite heavily into that coconut bun/coconut pastry imagery I was get from the LLT aroma. I think for this to be coconut pie I actually probably would have wanted more creaminess or even a custard-y flavour but I’m probably more happy with what I got. The lemon is there, also creamy, but much lighter comparatively. The black tea impressively still comes through in the taste and I actually very much like the balance that the little hint of tannin gives to the blend. I can’t remember is Deb actually says what the black tea base is, but I would guess something Indian or Sri Lankan – the malty/bready notes, full bodied robustness, tannin, and even hints of cinnamon seem to support that.

So yeah – a blend I surprisingly ended up loving a lot.

Sipdown (289)

This was my sister’s random number selection pick tonight. I also didn’t realize it would be a sipdown but when I opened the package, I realized there was basically enough for a 16 oz serving so I just finished it.

Now that I am drinking the last of this, I am wondering how sugar or something would have helped this. It’s a nice warming coconut flavor and I could even see coconut pie but the lemon isn’t strongly present. It’s a good dessert flavor but seems to be missing just one thing. This will sound weird but the flavors you do get are almost bottom heavy so it seems like you need a pop of something on top. I think it is a bright lemon or even a sweet lemon note (like the lemon flavor in Butiki’s Lemon French Macaron) that would make this really rounded out.

Inkling

I’ve never had a coconut lemon tea! That seems like it could be a really great combination if done well.
