Coconut Truffle

Product Details

Tea meets truffle.

Blending a base of pure white tea with creamy coconut and cocoa nibs, this white chocolate truffle of a tea should really be classed as confectionery - you'd never guess it was sugar-free.

White tea owes its taste to the careful handling of the young leaves, delicately dried to keep oxidation levels to a minimum. The result is a light, sweet brew which works particularly well as the base for a blend. We've added blackberry leaves to complement the sweet, full-bodied tones which gradually develop over the course of the infusion, while carob, cocoa and coconut create that white chocolate creaminess. High in antioxidants and reputed to promote a youthful complexion, you can drink this tea with an easy conscience.

 

The Great Taste Awards have been described as the Oscars of the food world—so you can imagine we were pretty chuffed when our Coconut Truffle won a gold star at this year’s awards. The judges said that “the coconut works well to deliver the necessary sweetness against the chocolatey elements.”

Best enjoyed without milk.

* * * * * Tastes like it smells by Andrei Gheorghe on 10th April 2017

Often, sweeter teas smell delightful but taste disappointingly bland and watery. Not so here - despite being sugar free, this tea delivers a sweet creaminess that is at the same time, not sickly.

* * * * * So yummy by Jessica Van Ristell on 24th January 2017

This tea is lovely and light. Its very sweet which is ideal for someone like me trying to cut down on sugar but with a super sweet tooth! I use x2 teaspoons and infuse for 2 mins for the perfect brew. Highly recommend.

I didn't like it, I looooved it. Great smell, great taste. I converted some friends as well.

* * * * * Pudding in a cup by Angela Samuels on 12th August 2016

As great tea fans, we like to try something different each time we order our favourites and this time it was Coconut Truffle. It can only be described as pudding in a cup. It is sweet and creamy and quickly becoming yet another favourite. I really recommend that you give it a try.

* * * * * Great by Liz on 11th August 2016

This tea is great when you need something sweet but do not want the calories of chocolate

Origin

China

The Chinese invented paper, gunpowder and the compass. But their finest innovation has to be tea, reputedly first discovered by the emperor Shen Nong in 2737 BCE. Originally prepared as a medicinal brew, tea became a drink in its own right during the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE), and today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black, green and white tea to oolong, puerh and yellow tea. If you’re looking for a bit of teatime reading take a look at Lu Yu’s ‘Tea Classic’: first written in 780 CE, it covers everything from cultivation methods to tea etiquette…

    Flavoured Herbal Infusion

    Cultivated in the Cederberg Mountains of South Africa, herbal honeybush is a close cousin of rooibos, taking its name from the fragrance of its flowers and warm, honeycomb sweetness. We wouldn't want to gild the lily, but creamy Madagascan vanilla does add a rather delicious twist…

    Hot, sweet and spicy, our very special blend of rich rooibos tea with cardamom, cinnamon and cocoa kernels is the herbal equivalent of hot chocolate. Warming chai spices add a touch of exoticism, while the slight bittersweet bite of the cocoa is beautifully complemented by the creamy sweetness of rooibos. It's what you might call tea gourmandise…

    Flavoured White Tea

    No, you're not dreaming. This truly is a tea blended with pieces of real white chocolate. We've opted for a delicate Chinese white tea for the base and chosen white chocolate crafted from creamy cocoa butter, perfectly suited to melt into the infusion. As far as teas go, it's a bit of a masterpiece...
