So excited this finally got here! :) Today is an especially good day for tea, cold, dark and raining. So I’ve been snuggling on the couch with several cups of hot tea in a row. I’ve been looking forward to this one arriving in quite some time. Let’s get started.

Initial impressions are very good. The scent is lovely; both strongly of coconut but also of black tea. Probably smell about 50/50 of each, which is very promising. The coconut flakes are ENORMOUS, but in the way you’d want. Big enough that they promise to offer a lot of flavor, but not so humongous that you have to use a ton of scoops to get some leaf along with it.

The verdict?

Yummy yummy yum yum! :D It’s exactly what I wanted. I love black tea, I love coconut and this is a match made in heaven, heh. It’s deliciously sweet, but not so saccharine that you can’t taste the black tea base. I don’t generally drink flavored blacks very often, but I think this could easily become a tea I drink nearly everyday. This is also one of those rare special teas where the taste is more delicious than the smell. I’ll have to stock up on this. :)

Bio

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
