This is the month of July’s tea. The dry blend is strong smelling back tea with large pieces of dried coconut and kiwi, as well as smaller shredded coconut. It smells very coco-nutty.
The brewed tea smells very strongly of the black tea. On first taste, all I get is strong, bold black tea. It is astringent, but in a good way. As it cools slightly, I get a lot of coconut flavour. And as it cools even more, I start getting a light kiwi flavour. The black tea remains bold but it starts to fade into the background a bit. The coconut was not super sweet like some other coconut tea blends, which was nice, it didn’t taste fake at all. I think this tea tasted best when the last few sips were at a luke-warm temperature. It was much more kiwi and coconut. I think adding some sweetener may bring out a more fruity flavour, but I honestly liked it just the way it was. Looking forward to trying this one iced.
