This is is super yummy (Not as 100% awesome as I was expecting… see my note on Cranberry Pear!), however, what a cool tea!

They classify it as a white tea, and although it looks black and I can’t pick out the white tea, I will trust that it’s there. lol.

The smell is divine, and the taste… tastes like chocolate! It’s kind of crazy.. the girl who sold it to me said she was allergic to chocolate, so I thought this tea must have been made for her! Of course, not for our favorite mew brew because of the coconut :( So that is a sad note.

I find it slightly light on flavour, but that may have been my steeping time. All in all, a very unique tea, but not my favorite. :)

The Purrfect Cup

I really wanted to try this. That is until I saw that it has coconut in it. So I still want to try it, but I don’t want to have my epi pen handy. “sigh”

Well, if it helps, it’s not AMAZING, it’s really not! Well, not to me n_n
Oh! I forgot to add that it is reminiscent of DTs Buttered Rum, of course that is probably because of the coconut, oh I am so not being helpful . 0_0 Well, maybe my Cranberry Pear story will make you not want to try it as much? Or maybe not! haha ohes :(

The Purrfect Cup

Haha! Too funny! It did make me feel better and I loved your tale of the Cranberry Pear!

Uniquity

I hate coconut and chamomile. : ( Also, I keep complaining to my local DT staff about how many blends have coconut lately – they now point it out when a new one is coconut free! I look forward to Christmas and Winter blends : )

DaisyChubb

Nice! My DT people don’t know me well enough yet to know that I know what a tea is and what to do with it, but I’m glad you have a good support system of friendlies when you go in! My hope is that Winter will bring a season of coconut-free-teas!

Cattibrie

I am not a big fan of coconut and chamomile either Uniquity but I am willing to give this one a try. I hope the chocolate taste will get rid of the coconut taste.

Amariel

I am not a fan of either on their own, but I am fine with them in blends, generally. I am still intrigued to try this one.

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
