From Mariage Frères

Colombian Black Tea – Organic Garden*
Fashioned in the heart of the Andes

Colour, flavour and passion. Welcome to Colombia!
Generous morsels of delicately caramelised coconut enrich this handsome black tea, lending it all the delightfulness of the iconic eponymous dessert.

This tea is a part of the Thés de Colombie collection, composed exclusively of teas, spices and fruits from Colombia. A Mariage Frères exclusive, these teas reflect the gourmet and dynamic culture of this country. As surprising as it is unique, this tea is cultivated in a place of indescribable beauty; straddling the vertiginous slopes of the Andean mountains in the heart of the cocoa plantations, the tea leaves develop incredibly subtle aromas, both intense and fruity. These teas are the result of a sustainable agriculture on exceptionally pure lands, nourished by crystal clear waters flowing down from the snowy summits.

PREPARATION TIPS: 2,5 g / 20 cl – 95°C – 3 min

I bought this from Mariage Frerès, but since they are always so weirdly coy with their descriptions, I’ll quote The Cultured Cup: “Cocada de Colombia, our newest tea from Mariage Frères, is an organic Colombian black tea flavored with toasted coconut. This tea is named after Cocada, the traditional coconut candy found in many parts of Latin America” … “A dark-colored, medium bodied tea generously sprinkled with toasted coconut” … “A creamy flavored tea with a suggestion of coconut sweetness” … “Instead of adding milk to this tea, consider adding coconut milk. It will greater enhance the tea’s delightful tropical flavor, as well as its natural creaminess.”

So. Yes. I do love coconut, though I sort of feel like it’s the embarrassing boyfriend of flavorings. Blame Thai food! Before I had Thai food, I never liked coconut, and now I’m all heart-eyes emoji. However! I’m still not down for sickly candy sweet coconut flavors! I think this one is handled quite well, a nice, light, “bright” lightly coconut-perfumed tea that feels very warming, cozy and refined to me — definitely not WOO PIÑA COLADA TEA PARTY TIME Y’ALL at all. :P

I’m experimenting with amounts and steeping time. For this, I used almost 4 grams to 300 ml water at about 95C, steeped for maybe 2.5 minutes.

Flavors: Caramel, Coconut
