I was so looking forward to this, but— The dry leaves smell wonderful, exactly like toasted coconut macaroons (thanks, takgoti!) However, it is a strange brew. The aroma is vegetal fighting with coconut. The flavor is buttered spinach—with coconut—not necessarily a complementary combination. My daughter asked “what’s the weird smell”—additionally not a good sign. In any event, I’m a bit bummed, as my expectations were high but sadly unmet.
