Crème brûlée + Sahara Tea = A Giveaway

Something came out this good…

Coconut crème brûlée

You now know that I am crazy about crèmes brûlées, crèmes brûlées revisited or even something close enough.

Why would you want to resist breaking this topping to make it through a creamy vanilla or chocolate spoonful? WHY?

Listen to me…  I discovered Sahara Tea through a friend, she offered me some teas.   Right away, 100 Mysteries attracted me.  The coconut prevails but the aroma of this mix will seduce you.  It seduced me.  Although I drink a lot of coffee, this one would totally make a fair trade in the morning!

Coconut crème brûlées

Some Sunday, as I was gathering my ingredients to make a crème brûlée, I opened the cupboard to reach for the sugar and saw the Sahara Tea box… Shall I dare?  Shall do I and give it a try?

Thank god I did!  I used a teabag in the making of the recipe and it added a great flavor to eat.  A hint of coconut and a nutty taste is an amazing upgrade to a crème brûlée.  Topped with fresh grated coconut! WOOOW!  Yes, that’s right!

I am so exited of this partnership with Sahara Tea and hopefully a lot of you are going to know them!

Sahara Tea is dedicated to delivering the best aromas, taste, and health benefits.  They offer a wide variety of products: Wellness, organic, classic, tisane, or even iced tea.
They also offer their own teaware such are pincer or infuser.  I really encourage you to go and visit their page at and say hi to Reena, the very sweet owner.

Before we get to the super exciting part, let me share my recipe with you!  It is very similar to the original one with 2 small extra steps.

    Yum, a dessert with two of my favorite things! While I do enjoy creme brulee, I’ve never gotten too creative with it, just sticking to the tried and true recipe. I’m now very tempted to give this a try.
