drank Lychee Coconut by Tea Forte
517 tasting notes

I got my free sample from Tea Forte and decided to try this one first. The dry leaves smell very coconutty and slightly fruity. The tea itself tastes much more like coconut than lychee. There is a slightly fruity taste in the background which, when mixed with the creamy coconut flavor, reminded me slightly of yogurt.
The actually flavor of the white tea is hay-ish. There’s an unpleasant astringency, but that may be because I brewed it too long.

Overall, it was a pleasant cup of tea after dinner. :)

Preparation

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
