I really really wanted a coconut tea this afternoon, on my sick day home from work. I’m not really sick but I got to sleep late and then slept super poorly and just could not get out of bed this morning. And by the time I felt better, it was past noon, so I just gave up on the whole day.
I told myself I wouldn’t open any more packages but I had no coconut teas open and I recently got this from The Tea Merchant in my order of teaware (and this, not a free sample, a whole couple of ounces I think). I’m glad I ordered it though because it is so very VERY nice.
I haven’t had many coconut teas before, much less white tea with coconut but I think right now that it is the perfect combination. There is a definite sweetness to this and a vanilla lingering taste. I’m also picking up something that is trying to taste like alcohol, without the alcohol burningness. Like maybe rum, I think. I usually don’t like rum in any form but it’s combining quite nicely in this. I wonder what’s causing that? Natural flavours ingredient perhaps.
At any rate, I’m glad this is so good because I’ll have to drink it up quickly before the coconut turns to soap. But this is, definitely, a very nice tea.
