It is with disappointment that I write this review. Disappointment that my cup is empty because this tea was damned delicious! I am literally steeping more right now.
Anyone who’s read a few of my other reviews know that one of my favorite teas of all time. (Imagine that as said by Kanye West when he took the award from Taylor Swift: OF ALL TIME) is Cocoa Paradiso from David’s Tea ( http://steepster.com/teas/davids-tea/15181-cocoa-paradiso-organic ). Now, that is a seasonal tea, so know that that season is over, I was looking for an replacement to get me through my period of mourning. It was my hope that Coconut Cream Pie would be the next best thing.
I was wrong.
I did sweeten this, and have it as a latte because the smell of the tea alone said ‘Make me as creamy as possible.’ and the only thing stopping me from making whipped cream to throw on this was the fact that I was watching Die Hard. This tea is everything anyone who wants something rich and coconutty could ask for! It’s super delicious, full, and bursting with freshness.
What else I like about this tea is how dessert-like it is. Some coconut teas put me in mind of the tropics, and ought to be drunk iced through straws from brightly coloured luau cups, which is lovely on its own, but they don’t taste quite right when they’re warm and sipped on cold evenings like this tea is perfect for.
