drank Coco La Ven by The NecessiTeas
4219 tasting notes

I received this sample from NecessiTeas what seems like ages ago, but I am just now getting around to trying it. The aroma of the dry leaf is nice, I can smell the lavender and the vanilla and the coconut. It is a lovely, delicious fragrance. The brewed liquor offers hints of the vanilla, chamomile, coconut and lavender all at once, it smells interesting and different… very pleasant and unusual and soothing aroma.

This is a very tasty tea. There is a really nice balance between the vanilla, coconut and lavender. The chamomile is not a strong flavor but I can detect its apple-like note, which plays in nicely with the other flavors here. The black tea is a smooth, unassuming base flavor that is not particularly strong, but it’s there. There is also a interesting note of chocolate, not a sweet chocolate, but more of like a savory note that is somewhat deep and chocolate-y.

I really like this. Very nice.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
