Here is what I was sent to review:
1.) Palm Beach Passion Coffee
2.) Fancy Earl Grey Tea
This coffee is unbelievable! I got it for Mike mainly and I was gonna do the tea but when I went to open the box the day that it arrived, the coffee scent was out of this world! It smelled so freaking good, I just had to grind some up right there and then. Mike had just gotten home from work and we both grabbed a cup and went and sat down to watch the news and relax a little before we thought about what to do for dinner.
Now, the real reason I picked this particular one out of all the possible choices was that it had a chocolate undertone. So, I thought, mmm, that might be pretty interesting. So, that was why this particular coffee got chosen. I had no idea how it would taste, just went on gut instinct and man, did it pay off! This coffee is awesome! It can be either a breakfast coffee to get you going or an after dinner coffee to have with dessert. It is a medium roast so it is not too powerful that you can't use it either way.
Oh, by the way, they have a Coffee Club you can join! I have left you the link at the bottom of this post so you can go check it out. It also includes the Tea so you can get auto shipping and it's free (shipping only). They even offer free samples with each package. You get all the exclusive offers and sale items, too! Mix and match and taste them all! Gosh, that sure would be nice, huh?
Here are some more facts as to why it is so darn good:
*Slightly sweet, remarkably smooth.
*A light & dark combo of roasted South American Arabica beans blended together for rich, full- bodied flavor.
*The combo of light & dark roasts produces this aromatic coffee for a full body with soft chocolate undertones, offering a slightly sweet, smooth finish.
*It's one of their more popular gourmet coffees.
Now, if you are a tea drinker, then you are gonna want to try this one! I love Earl Grey tea and knew this would be a no brainer but I had no idea that they had added something else to the tea that would knock my socks right off my feet! They added essential oils of the Bergamot fruit and Blue Mallow Blossoms to this tea (you can see the blue blossoms thru the clear plastic) to make this one of the most electric tea I have tasted in a long time!
It almost fooled me into thinking I was drinking lavender in the tea and I am not sure what Blue Mallow Blossoms are but they must be a close relative of lavender because that is what I thought I smelled when I opened the pouch and when I tasted the tea. I guess the mixture of Bergamot and Blue Mallow Blossoms give this Earl Grey black tea a whole new meaning to the word: WOW!
Here is how you fix your cup of tea and what you can pair it with:
Steep Time: 4-5 MinutesWater Type: Full Boil
Flavor: Creamy Bergamot Tones
Food Pairings: Enjoy anytime, excels with starchy foods, breads, cookies and chocolates
I have to tell you that I have drank alot of tea in my life and especially these last 2 years but this one really had me enjoying a cup of tea to the fullest. It comes in a bag of 18 tea bags that are made of some type of silk or satin. Gosh, I am gonna have to tell people to just order me a bag of this tea for Christmas and I will be set!
All in all Mike and I were very happy and excited with both our coffee and tea choices and I can't believe on the first try that I picked two winners! Usually one of them will be awful or we won't care for it too much but this time I hit the jackpot for both of us. So, Mike was really happy for once that he can have a great coffee to drink, especially now at this time of year.
He works outside and they are not allowed to sit in their trucks and run the heater when they don't have work to do nor can they go back to the office to wait for a trouble to come in. The company that he works for makes them sit in those cold trucks! So, Mike drinks alot of coffee during the winter to try and keep warm. That is when we go thru the most coffee. So, when I can get him a really good coffee to enjoy, it is a big deal here in our household, so Thank You so very much Boca Java!
We used to not think about the price of coffee or tea when I was working. But since I have become disabled, it has not been pretty. We usually have to settle for the cheapest coffee or teas, so these little luxuries are like a slice of heaven to us. And I feel so honored & humble when I find something Mike enjoys because he is out there in the cold while I get to stay home and be warm.
Now, we didn't get to review this but I wanted to let you know that they have premium hot chocolate also besides the coffees and teas. Doesn't this one sound scrumptious? Peppermint Chocolate Truffle? Wow! That would make an awesome Christmas drink, don't you think? This is the description that they have on their site:
A unique blend of bittersweet, milk and white chocolates infused with a subtle hint of peppermint makes for an elegant twist to a classic chocolate truffle.You guys really should go look over their site! I sure do hope sometime in the future we can get another bag of coffee and that awesome tea. Might have to whisper in a few relatives ears and make sure they know the website address. What do ya think? Can I pull it off? Well, it don't hurt to try, does it?
