I’ve been on a bit of a coconut kick this week. So, I plucked this one out of the inbox that I created next to my teapot. It smelled wonderfully of fresh coconut when I opened the bag and I set the timer and went to bed. 165/2 min.

It still smells delicious. The taste is nice. It’s not quite what I had hoped for. I thought I’d encounter a fresh coconut taste, as the aroma implied. However, it comes out as more of a sweetened coconut flavor. Like a Mounds candy bar. It’s a bit too much and it does overpower the sencha base, which is very difficult to discern. Still, it’s a nice tea, very slightly bitter, but overall very pleasant.

Bio

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
