I’m surprised I like Checkmate at all. Typically I’m not a fan of coconut or anything with that sort of flavour, but this is great. It’s easy to scald the white leaves while you’re perfectly steeping the black, so erring on the side of lower temperature water for longer will probably help.

It’s a light brown when brewed. Good sweetened, unsweetened, with or without milk; both hot and iced. (A co-worker told me to try it iced with milk and a big of agave. Agh. <3)

My favourite use of this was around Christmas, I was making eggnog lattes with 2 tsp of Checkmate and a tsp of honey. Glorious.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 30 sec

I’ll be upfront, I did work retail and inventory for one of the tea chains. I’ve been a lover of loose leaf for three or four years, but I’ve barely begun to learn all the nuances of the tea world.

A lover of citrus, fruit, and spice.
