From Whittard of Chelsea

Inspired by the famous Parisian confection, we’ve created a gloriously ornamental blend of green and black tea is adorned with curlicues of coconut chips, pieces of caramel and a handful of patissier’s sugared hazelnuts. Elaborate, perhaps. But with its creamy coconut freshness and vibrant edge of bright steamed Sencha, it’s all about being sweet but chic. Now, we know what we’d suggest as the ideal taste pairing. Pierre Hermé and Ladurée are masters of the macaron, so be sure to stop by whenever you’re in Paris – we’d recommend coconut and lime, or p43% Black Tea, 36% Green Tea, 8% Coconut Flakes, 6% Caramel Pieces (condensed skimmed milk, sugar, glucose syrup, butterfat (milk), humectant: E420, emulsifier: E471), 3% Brittle Pieces (sugar, hazelnut, invert sugar), Flavourings

Allergy Advice: Not suitable for people with other nut and peanut allergies. Perhaps matcha and chestnut.

I finally finished this tea. I hoarded for so long that I was afraid it was a goner, especially with the big strips of coconut in it.

GMathis mentioned scones a few days ago and I could not get them out of my mind, so Monday morning I made a batch of cranberry/white chocolate chip/pecan scones to serve as breakfast for the week. This was what I chose to pair with it.

The smell of the dry leaf is so sweet but the tea itself is not. I think it is the combination of black and green tea that gives this tea a little smoky edge that keeps the macaron part from being cloying. It was just hefty enough for breakfast but I love it as an afternoon tea, also. It is one of my favorites from Whittards of Chelsea. The coconut was not in the least rancid, thank goodness.

So this was a sipdown, but I don’t get any extra room on the actual shelf because the tin is too pretty to throw away. Eventually I will probably part with it but not today.

I can’t bare to throw away pretty tins. Instead, I leave them on the free table at work and hover in my doorway watching them find new homes!

I feel the same! I teach a lot of teen girls who instagram and they often take my pretties for photo props! The sturdy tins often end up in Ashman’s woodworking shop to hold bits and bobs. When feasible, I relabel them and store loose leaf that came in an envelope or bag.

I can just see you peering out to see them leaving, clutching your hankie, and dabbing away a happy tear as you give a surreptitious wave goodbye!

Throw nothing away is hard-wired into my DNA. Depression-era parents.

Gmathis: Same! Spent tonight re-hemming an ancient blanket by hand because the edge binding wore out. One end done, one to go, and boy, is my neck stiff!

This is a very nice tea. It has a very sweet smell that compliments the tea’s taste, which is not overly sweet. It has a very smooth texture with the coconut blending with the two different teas

This tea was a treat! While I don’t really understand the reasoning behind blending green and black tea (all I can taste is the black tea) the flavor combination in this one is delicious: lots of creamy coconut with a touch of caramel sweetness and just a whiff of hazelnut. The mouth feel is thick and rich and it’s delicious both with and without milk. I would definitely consider re-purchasing this one!

Smallest amount I could grab was a 40g tin. Will have to pitch the tin, sadly… but wow this is a lovely cup.

Smells sweet, tastes sweeter, thick and rich, creamy from the coconut, with a hint of green grassy to offset the fullness. I’m surprised by this, especially after the coconut from yesterday.

Too bad about the tin! I’m sure it was cute.
