This one has been lost in the very bottom of my tea drawer, and I’m not sure how it managed to escape my attention for so long. Almond, coconut and vanilla with rose petals – sounds delightful! The dry leaves smell very nutty with just a hint of sweet vanilla. The flavor is very light, with coconut and almond. There is a very fresh taste about the coconut, and not very sweet like some coconut flavors can be. I was hoping for more hints from the rose petals, but there is only a wispy floral aftertaste. This tea is just kind of bland to me. It sounded so girly and yummy, but I’m just not getting that much flavor out of it. I added a little sugar which helped, but it’s still rather plain tasting. I’ve never fallen in love with a white tea, and this just confirms that I prefer black teas. I really don’t want to rate my beloved Harney’s so low, but this tastes almost like plain hot water to me. I’m glad I got around to sampling this one, but I won’t be purchasing any more.

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
