This tea is very tasty! And that’s high praise from me, a black tea novice. I’ve loved every other variety of tea, but black has mostly been meh for me. this one though! Tasty! I drank it without additions and loved the sweet buttery flavor. The rum is pretty apparent as well. It just reminds me so much of the holidays somehow. And the coconut is there in the background rounding out the flavors. I added a bit of almond milk and sugar at the end and it was meh. This tastes better straight. I’m thinking about ways I can bake with this though.
The tea leaves were surprisingly large. I loved the coconut peices and flower petals. Pretty! The tea base was unobtrusive and drying but not astringent. I wish I could say more but black tea is not my forte. This would be good with a sweet breakfast though! Like crepes! I haven’t made crepes in forever! Crepe party! My place. Sunday. Bring your favorite topping. :) I’ve got some speculatius spread and homemade kumquat marmalade!
I also want to add that the caffeine here is gentle but invigorating. I’ve had teas that kick you in the face with caffeine but this one comes up to you and gets to know you like a friend.
