Steepster Traveling Teabox Tea

Nice black tea, but not finding the coconut or chocolate. It is especially nice that it’s smooth, astringent, but not bitter.

Post-Steep Additives: 1 tsp German rock sugar, a bit sweeter but that’s all.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

Resteep: not a true resteep, per Steepster notes I saw the suggestion for double strength. I added 1 fresh tsp on top of the 1 tsp already steeped and let it go 4 min.

Smells like coconut, tastes like tea, roommate detects slight coconut aftertaste. I didn’t.

Dumped in 1 tsp sweetened coconut milk. Now I have coconut but no chocolate.

I generally thought that this tea did not meet Premium Steap’s typical high standards; I liked it but I also used double strength, which I should have mentioned in my tasting note.

I haven’t tried too many of their teas yet but i loved their almond tea, so i kind of was expecting a bit more from this one…oh well

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
