Making a cup of tea this morning, I found a sample of some black tea from Siciliano's Market that I picked-up on my last trip to Grand Rapids: Burrough's Blend. This mixture of black tea and coconut has an aroma that promises smooth flavors and natural sweetness without any fruitiness.
I brewed a teaspoon and a half in twelve ounces of just-boiled water for four minutes, enjoying the smell of coconut that wafted from the cup. Once the steeping was done and the cup had cooled enough to drink, I took a sip and let the coolness of the coconut roll over my tongue. The blending with the black tea had been very well done, and the tea itself - not too malty or heavy - provided an excellent backdrop to coconut.
If you happen to find yourself in Grand Rapids, be sure to stop by Sicliano's Market. Burrough's Blend is definitely worth trying. On my personal enjoyment scale, I would rate it a 4.
