Sipdown success!!! I like this tea. It smells like coconut, tastes like toasted coconut and has a creaminess behind each sip. It is a lovely tea! What I don’t get is the mistaken impression of chocolate, although adding some to this tea would be interested. I hate it when tea descriptions try to tell me what I might taste that isn’t in the tea especially when it comes to teas tasting like certain times of the day in various famous cities. Bah! Bah I say, bah! Anyway, aside from the disgruntled digression, I enjoy this tea and would consider buying it again.

Just read my first tasting note for this tea and I didn’t really like it much then! Funny how tastes and expectations can change over time.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! I like a little sugar in my tea. I love caffeinated tea, but since I limit myself to one cup a day, I have been exploring more rooibos and honeybush teas. Rooibos now = meh and I have upped my caffeine tolerance. BRING ME CAFFEINE!!!!
