Tea Forte Coconut Collection Review & Giveaway **Closed**


 
Oh, have I got a treat for you! I found a new tea company called Tea Forte and I got to review their Coconut Collection of Teas! In that collection were these (3) flavors:

1. Coconut Chai Latte
2. Coconut Chocolate Truffles
3. Coconut Mango Colada

Now, does that not get your wanna go to the beach theme on or what? I thought I was when I went to simmer my tea and waited for it to really get good and hot and steamy, I could smell the coconut right away! And they come in these really cute little triangle shapes with a green leaf looking string to make it look like you might have actually picked the coconut right off the tree!
Isn't that the most unusual cover for a tea that you have ever seen? I thought it was pure genius whoever came up with that idea!

 But, to be honest here, really, the credit goes to the person who thought to make coconut tea! I really enjoyed that Coconut Chocolate Truffle tea! The organic black tea had hints of chocolate and coconut along with that was a hint of hazelnut. Have I got your attention, yet? If that does not make you want to try this fantastic tea, then I just don't know what to do! Well, yes, I could tell you about the other two, I guess.

Coconut Chai Latte is also an organic black tea with organic ginger root, organic cinnamon, organic coconut pieces, organic licorice root, natural coconut flavor, organic cardamom seeds, organic black pepper, organic clove buds along other natural flavors.

Now, if you don't like ginger, you probably won't like this tea. I wanted you to know that. Ginger is very good for you but some people don't like it. I do, always have. Ginger snap cookies are one of my favorites and that is what this reminded me of.

You will actually taste the ginger more than the coconut but it is there. Only thing I would change on this one is maybe add more coconut and less ginger. But, that is really the essence of a chai tea, so if you don't have ginger, then it really isn't a chai tea. So, I can see where you would have a dilemma. It is one of the best chai's I have had so if that is what you like, then you will love this one!

Once you take them out of the box above, this is what they look like in their little triangle sleeves. Of course, it is not open, that is just to show you what it looks like inside. This one is the Coconut Chocolate Truffle and the big nut you see there I believe represents the hazelnut. But, now, let me tell you about the Coconut Mango Colada! Wow, this one will take you to the islands for sure.

I can tell you that this was my 2nd best favorite because it has green tea in it and is more gentle tasting and refreshing. It has organic green tea, organic coconut pieces, natural coconut flavor, organic orange peels, organic mango pieces, organic lime pieces, natural mango flavor, natural pineapple flavor, natural vanilla flavor along with other natural flavors. If you love the taste of fresh fruits along with hints of vanilla then this is the one you are gonna love just like me! Plus the green tea is so good for you!
This is the Coconut Mango Colada tea that you see above and below is what the collection looks like once you open the box:

 
Of course, Tea Forte makes many more teas than this one collection. There are way too many for me to list here but if you go to their Shop by Collection, you will see how long the list really is! I can tell you that the two that caught my attention were the Hamptons Collection and the Dulce Vita Collection! Oh, but then I found it and about had a heart attack! They have Lavender Tea!!!My all time favorite! Wow, I hope someday I get the privilege of tasting those teas! And on top of all that tea, they have accessories to go with it! Check out the Ceramic Teaware!
