I am very much in the mood for this kind of tea right now… something milky and creamy. I am really trying to drink more of the tea I have in my collection before buying any more. I’m making progress, but it’s slow progress. I always find that I crave other teas than the ones on my shelves. Anyway, about this cup…

The scent of the brewed cup is wonderful! I detect whipped cream, coconut (of course), a bit of buttery oolong and something like vanilla ice cream. I’m hoping that the scent translates into the taste because I would rate this tea a 95 based on scent alone!
Sipping… not really tasting whipped cream or vanilla.. but more of a green oolong with coconut. I suppose that I expected this, but the scent fooled me into believing that there would be something in addition to the coconut. The first part of the sip is of a very green oolong and then the coconut notes come out. As the cup cools, more of the oolong’s buttery notes appear and the cup becomes more silky.

This is a very solid cup and I think it would be very tasty iced. When it gets warmer, I’ll try an iced version. Thank you, Lindsey for a sample of this tea!
