Hmm… I’m almost afraid to post this, but as a coconut lover, this tea didn’t meet my expectations. I thought that I’d be LOVING this one.
The scent is extraordinary. Coconutty, decadent, rich. I’m imagining a piña colada tea style.
Boiling/5 min – The scent is filling the room. I’m really anticipating taking a sip, and then I do. Hm. Another sip. I’m not transported to my tropical isle. Another sip. Okay, I decide to set it aside and let it cool a bit. I come back to it and sip yet again. I wasn’t mistaken; this tea isn’t meeting my hopes and dreams. It’s good, but I think it’s the honeybush that is throwing me off. I’m really, really wishing this had a green tea base, or maybe even oolong. I’m just not tasting tea and it’s leaving me feeling empty inside. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not horrible, it’s just that with all the hype, I was expecting a fantasy-achieving tea. I can taste the toasted coconut (nice), the cheesecake (a slight tartness, yum), but the tea… ((sigh)) Where is the tea?
Did I mention the beautiful aroma? Ah!! It’s like edible suntan lotion. Yum.
