The Republic of Tea Teabag Herbal 'Coconut Cocoa Tea'

Tea: Coconut Cocoa Tea
Type: Herbal, Teabag
Company: The Republic of Tea
Amount: 2 teabags for 12 ounces of water
Time: 4-5 minutes

Served: Hot
Smell: Strongly of the coconut shell and meat
Flavor: light cocoa with coconut milk taste. MilitiaJim was unable to pick up the cocoa, it was "stomped on" by the coconut
Aftertaste: coconut, sweet

Added german rock sugar, 1 scoop per cup and it really helped smooth the flavor and bring out the cocoa.

Added Almond Milk, didn't help the tea at all (we love plain black almond milk tea and wanted to experiment). Militiajim notes this makes it smell like an Almond Joy bar.

I want to try in the future with honey, and maybe a 5-6 minute brew time.

Update: tried with honey, enjoyed it a bit more but still don't love it

Purchase: Here

Ingredients: Roasted carob, caramel malted barley, roasted chicory, dates, coconut flavor, cocoa powder and chocolate flavor

Rating: 2/3
Militiajim's Rating: 1/3
