So went out to DAVIDsTea today. :) Second time I’ve ever been there in person, so I was very excited to finally go again today after a year. Anyway, I happily smelled pretty much every tea in the building, bought the new elephant mug, and also walked out with a bunch of teas. :) Overall, a success!
Anyway, I’m a bit disappointed to find out too late (50g bag, anyone?) that this tea actually contains artificial ingredients (I dodge as much as possible) but I won’t lament on that, because I could’ve researched more first. That said, it tastes really delicious! :) It actually tastes like toasted coconut, and not like chemicals at all despite the ingredients.
The girl at the store said this tea works well with multiple infusions, so I’ve kept the leaves to the side to test that theory once this cup is done. :)
As the cup cools, the coconut flavor comes more into the foreground, though it definitely wasn’t mild prior, hehe. :)
Very excited to be drinking out of my first infuser mug. I want a whole bunch now! :)
EDIT: Had a second infusion. It’s definitely much weaker than the first, but still good and coconutty. :) I don’t think this could handle a third. Also just wanted to mention how beautiful and HUGE the leaves are when they’re fully opened up. I was really admiring the difference between the dry leaf in the tin, and the steeped leaf in the infuser. Almost looked like I had a salad in there, ha! Infusers really are a lot more fun than T-sacs. :)
