drank Cocomint Cream by DAVIDsTEA
470 tasting notes

Another generous sample from tattooed_tea! I love coconut, I love mint and I love cream so I’ve been drooling over this blend since it first came out. I’m trying to sample a bunch of DAVIDsTEA blends before I make a big purchase though, so I don’t end up with something icky I don’t like. You never really know with them—most of their blends I love, but some are really hit or miss.

This blend… yeah, I definitely like! The mint is strong, it’s nice and creamy (vanilla maybe), and there’s a smooth hint of coconut in the background. This definitely reminds me of after dinner mints like Andes even though there’s no chocolate, the cream just adds a ton of depth. I do, however, wish the coconut was a wee bit stronger. I’m surprised they work at all though really, coconut and mint is something I never would have though of getting. I wonder who comes up with these ideas? What a fun job, coming up with tea flavors! Especially at DT, since they seem to have some really off the wall blends.

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
