drank Coconut Mango Colada by Tea Forte
709 tasting notes

Coconut is very hit or miss for me. I like real fresh coconut, not imitation coconut, dried coconut, or coconut flavour. But when I saw this tea I thought I had to give it a try because it smelled so delicious. I had some coconut tea from Hawaii a few years ago and it was soooooo good. I had to see if this one was a good.

While brewing is smells like rich, creamy, buttery, coconut, almost like coconut cream. There was a slight tartness to the smell, made me think of coconut and lime. The taste if the tea is strong coconut, smooth and rich. There is a very suble mango flavour, but it really could be any tropical fruit.

It’s pretty good, not the same as Hawaii but it will be good enough for now.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
