We found this cute little bat at one of our favorite spots in Disney Springs, Erin McKenna’s Bakery. The bat is similar to a Mounds bar; sweet coconut and then half dipped in chocolate, with little candy pearls for eyes. This sweet treat is dairy and allergen free; vegan friendly.

For our tea pairing, we used English Breakfast from Joffrey’s. We knew we would need something strong to pair with the sweet coconut, and the english breakfast was just right. The creamy coconut perfectly complemented the black tea, and made it taste like there was sweetened milk added to the tea. This is a great tick to use when pairing tea and sweets; if the tea is strong enough to have milk added, then it will pair nicely with some creamy, in this case, coconut!

If you are in the Springs this season, be on the lookout for this cute little treat from Erin McKenna’s and grab a tea from Joffrey’s, you won’t be sorry! If you miss the season of the cute bats, these coconut mounds are usually shaped like hearts.

Looking for a tea that would be comparable to English Breakfast? Try our Assam tea! This strong rich black tea from India would work great for recreating this pairing at home.
