I've wanted to try this tea for quite some time but for some reason or another I never ordered it until now. The list of ingredients sounds heavenly and the name implies the tea should taste like a million bucks. You take Brazil nuts and a million bucks and you call it a Brazillionaire.
When I first open the package the aroma is positively intoxicating. It's sweet and nutty and full of coconut. I know there are Brazil nuts in here but I also smell hazelnut. So far so good.
The package states to use 1.5 teaspoons per cup but I think it should be a little more generous than that. The raisins and big coconut flakes take up a lot of space and I have to make sure I get enough of the black tea in there too.
I take two generous teaspoons and steep it at boiling water for 5 minutes. As the tea is brewing, the aroma continues to flirt with my senses, awakening memories of hot pastries and warm homemade pudding. I'm not sure where this is going but I'm liking it already.
Oh yes. This tea does not disappoint. It tastes as good as it smells. I try it first without any additions and it's everything it supposed to be. It's smooth, a little sweet and nutty with a nice taste of coconut and a hint of caramel. There is no astringency at all.
I could just leave it at that but I can't. I want to go further. I have a feeling there is even bigger potential here. I add some hot milk and few drops of maple syrup and all of a sudden I'm catapulted into heaven. All the flavours are now intensified and the tea turns into a delicious desert. I can sit here and sip on it all night long. One of these nights I will turn it into a latte.
Overall, this is another fine blend from David's Tea and I'm glad it's in my cabinet. I will definitely be restocking it once my supply goes down.
