I just recently bought this and I was so excited to have a coconut flavored tea! I smelled the cloves,anise,cinnamon,and ginger, it smelled so good. This morning I made a mug of this tea, and added about 2 teaspoons of sugar and to my surprise, when I took a sip there was absolutely NO coconut notes in this tea whatsoever! However, there is a wonderful spice to this tea and I really love the intensity of the cloves and anise. This is a great tea if you like the spicier side of tea.
