Let me first start off by saying I never once thought I’d be able to try this tea, nevermind any tea from 52 Teas. Not for a long while, anyways. I have been DYING to try Frank’s creations.
So you should have seen how excited I was when I received this as part of the very generous batch of samples VariaTEA sent to me. ♥ I was ecstatic! Thank you so much!
I had no idea what tea to start off with today, so I asked my mom – a non-tea drinker – to go through my tea drawer and pick out one for me. She grabbed this one and couldn’t stop smelling it. It really does smell exactly like a delicious coconut cream pie.
But unfortunately, I’m finding the taste isn’t quite living up to the smell. I can taste the faint sweetness of the coconut, but I’m getting an almost papery aftertaste. Like eating construction paper. :( I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because of something I ate beforehand. Maybe my taste buds are out of whack this morning. Who knows? I still have a bit of sample left to try it again at a later date.
5 minutes later: I’m starting to taste even more of the coconut and creaminess, and it’s becoming 10x more delicious. I think it was because of what I had beforehand. Rating is bumped up!
