Steeping this tea, I was reminded of LifeSaver’s butter rum candy. The smell, to me, is just about the same! The taste is of coconut and vanilla with a slight creamy finish. As it cools, the tea turns significantly more buttery and creamy. Absolutely amazing! I can’t seem to get the image of LifeSaver’s candies out of my head.. this is THAT candy flavor in TEA form! This tea is so sweet and delicious, I have already had 3/4 of the cup without noticing! I really wonder what milk and sugar would do to this tea. I feel like it would be beyond sweet, almost like a piece of toffee. Drinking it so quickly, my stomach catches up with me to realize just how RICH this tea is. This would be perfect for satisfying any sweet cravings!
The biggest hug to ladykittykat for sending me a sample of this. I have quite a few more samples to try and think I’ll indulge all afternoon and evening while writing three papers for class!

This is one of our favorites, in fact, we’re almost out! It’s the one I use to convert everyone I know over to the dark side of looseleaf tea. Glad you’re liking it!
