coco-la-ven.jpgCoco La Ven certainly wins the prize for the most eclectic and unlikely tea ingredients. The blend of black tea, coconut, chamomile, lavender and vanilla is,as described on the Necessiteas website, intriguing. With such a motley array of ingredients, this tea promised to be an amazing delight for the taste buds or a culinary experiment gone horribly wrong. Luckily for me, this tea proved to be a really tasty cup. The most prominent flavor here is the coconut, and that is no surprise given the generous amount of rather large coconut shavings in the blend. The coconut shaving easily made up at least a third of the blend in my sample. The lavender and chamomile provided a subtle floral finish, and worked surprisingly well with the sweet and nutty coconut flavor. The amount of chamomile was just about perfect, as I think any more than what was in the mix could have resulted in an overpowering chamomile flavor. The lavender was definitely more noticeable in the aroma (especially of the brewed leaves) than in the flavor, although to me, that is a good thing since I am not a huge fan of lavender. All together, the ingredients produce a sweet and refreshing blend comparable to no other tea I've had. The coconut and chamomile sweetened the tea naturally, so I did not need to add any sweetener. I mixed in a splash of milk in my second cup of this tea (as recommended by Necessiteas) for a creamy tea, which was very tasty. I really enjoyed this tea, and I think most others will too, as its creative blend of ingredients will not likely be encountered in many (or any) other tea blends out there.
