I will forever be grateful that the bookstore I work at also sells teas and tea paraphernalia. I don’t think I’d ever have been introduced to Harney & Sons, for instance, without them. Just in time for summer they brought in a bunch of Tea Forte’s Coconut Samplers and being a fan of all things coconut I put my staff discount to good use.
No surprise this particularly tea is heavy on the coconut flavours and it gives the tea a rich, almost creamy taste. There are notes of lemon and citrus, and mango too although it is pretty subtle (though I might just need to steep the pyramid-thing a bit longer). I could see this totally rocking as an iced tea this summer.
