A new favourite. I’m usually conservative with my stashes, but I blasted through a 50g bag of this in a week. I can drink this any time of day as a very pleasant pick-me-up.
The dry leaves certainly smell like a pie – the crust/ baked aromas come through quite strongly. Very sweet overall.
You don’t get much of a crust flavour in the liquer. Certainly butter, but no crust. Overall it’s very nutty and smooth. For the people that aren’t big coconut fans, it doesn’t have that poopy flavour that coconut can sometimes have. Slight oil droplets on the surface from the chocolate and coconut but nothing too obnoxious.
I prepare this a little differently. I will get the kettle to a full boil and as I am waiting, I pick the white chocolate chips out of the tea and put it along with my sweetner of choice into the cup. Once the water is at a full boil, I pour a little into the cup and stir it briskly to get the chocolate and sugar well dissolved. I then fill the cup and steep the tea (in bag or strainer) with the kettle water that has had a chance to cool. While the tea is steeping I usually tug the bag up and down a couple times to break up the leaves if they clump together. That way the chocolate is fully incorporated and you get a perfect, flavourful steep.
