I’m confused by the high rating for this on here. Although I had it a few days ago, the bitter, almost tannic coconut in this made the rest of it unpalatable for me, and I dumped it. Will have to try again, perhaps at a lower temperature, to see if I can get it to taste as lovely as it sounds.

Flavors: Burnt, Coconut, Tannin

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

That’s too bad! This is one of my all-time favourites.

Your temp was too high, probably. I brew this at 73 or 76 tops…

I gave up on coconut tea. First, it’s hard to find a good one, second when you do find one, it turns waxy and sour in no time…

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
