drank Coconut Cream Pie by Butiki Teas
171 tasting notes

Backlog from a couple of evenings ago. I still struggle sometimes with what to drink in the evenings. I try to avoid caffeine much of the time, although as busy and tired as I’ve been I don’t think it would bother me much.

I went for this one because I do love my coconut and I’m hoarding my last little bit of coconut macaroon from S &Vail.

This one smells very much like sweet coconut when dry. Steeped, the coconut flavor is there, a bit of cream, but I also get some woodsy rooibos. Not terribly much, but enough that it was taking away from my coconut. I don’t remember the first cup tasting that way, so may have been my mood or I did something different with steeping it. Maybe not my favorite coconut tea, but good for the evening time.

Thanks again EvaGrimm for sharing a bit of this with me.

Bio

37 yr old wife and mother who left her day job to take care of our son. Now running a property management business with my hubby.

I grew up on Lipton -hot w/milk & sugar, Lipton iced w/fresh spearmint and sugar, and Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime … Don’t criticize.

I came across Good Earth Original Sweet and Spicy out of chance and it spurred my interested in trying new teas because it was a flavor I had never had before in a tea. I’m now new to the world of loose leaf teas and looking forward to learning what I like as I journey through some new flavors. Hubby has always enjoyed the occasional cup when we’ve been out and about at restaurants.. now we will find out what good teas are really all about! On with the adventures!

Still relatively new to loose leaf, but I’m learning… Coconut, cinnamon, chai, chocolate, mint, & pineapple are just a few of the flavors I enjoy. I have found that I can do green teas so long as there are other flavors as well and it isn’t the primary flavor. I have only found 1 rooibos blend that was too woodsy for me, most of the time the base is hidden or blends well enough w/flavored versions for my liking. I’m beginning to enjoy fruit teas more and more. I occasionally like a straight black tea.

Hubby likes milder flavors, any base, berry flavors, sweet aromas, sometimes tart, and or floral, and chocolate to my surprise! Almost the opposite of me.. go figure!

My 8 year old just took interest and loves root beer.. so far Butterbeer is a hit, but we haven’t tried any root beer or cola teas yet.. soon thanks to the Marvelous MissB for sending some samples. He enjoyed Winter Nog (Della Terra) recently, but turned away something else I gave him.. darn if I can’t remember now what it was!
