I have a small sample of this tea (around 4 cups worth) thanks to an iheartteas sampler pack.

The raw tea smells like natural coconut (sweet and fresh) and the colour combination of ingredients is pleasant to look at. I note seeing curls of dried coconut in the blend.

Once brewed this smells very similar to Whittard of Chelsea’s – Pina Colada instant tea drink. For those of you who have not had that tea before it’s very sweet smelling and very coconutty, it adds a touch of tropical sunshine to an otherwise dull and rainy day.
The colour is dark golden red.

Taste wise this is very nice but is not as sweet as the smell. The coconut is somewhat creamy and fresh, slightly buttery too. There is an edge of strength when you take a sip but it gets over ridden quickly, like a sharp bitterness at the back of the throat that lasts a second before it vanishes.

The coconut gets a little stronger with each sip but still remains creamy and fresh. One of the better coconut flavoured teas that I have tried as it keeps it’s flavour throughout the cup. I think it would be a completely different tea with a little sugar but in a yummy way, to suit a particularly sweet mood. For now I am happy to have it virginal (no sweetener, creamers etc).

Overall a tasty blend. I am on a break from work so I will sit back, close my eyes and imagine I am laying on a warm beach and sipping from a coconut shell…better than the cold, wet and dark England weather approaching for winter.

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
