drank Coconut Cream Pie by 52teas
1621 tasting notes

I added skim milk to this cup and while it did smooth out some of the edges it didn’t really bring out the creaminess of the tea like I’d hoped. It might take a ‘heavier’ milk to accomplish that, but I never drink anything other than skim, so that’s likely an experiment for someone else.

I’m still rocking the nice (and real-tasting!) coconut flavour however. :D

Coconut milk? Maybe 1/2 sweetened condensed and 1/2 coconut milk?

Ah, craziness. I was just looking at this tea at the 52teas website, then I checked a new follower’s page and she had reviewed this, then went to the tea description page and saw that it had been a Steepster Select a little while ago, and then came back to my dashboard and saw your review. Maybe a little hint that I should order some? :)

@Cofftea: Two more things I don’t have or normally buy! XD

@Shanti: It is quite delicious depsite the lack of creaminess – it’s very coconut-y so if that’s your thing, then go for it!

S

I had a bad experience with coconut rum a few years ago, so now I get nauseated if I smell something too coconutty…

Shanti, if you’re looking for something with a bit less coconut, Adagio’s Capricorn tea might work for you. It lost points with me because of that, but it sounds like it might be more up your alley. :)

S

Ah! I actually have a tin of that now…I opened it a few days ago, and got the queasy feeling when I smelled the dry leaf, so I haven’t brewed it yet…but I’m guessing the tea itself won’t be as coconut-y, so it might actually be tasty. :)

[Stupid teenage alcohol consumption! Ruined quite possibly the tastiest tropical flavor out there for me. :( ]

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
