Steepster Traveling Teabox Tea
A very smooth and enjoyable tea. Although the coconut isn’t a very strong flavor (it’s more of a strong after taste and smell) it is there, in an odd way. The coconut shell was what I was picking up.
Not sure if I’d trudge through snow for it, but I will enjoy a cup from time to time.
Post-Steep Additives: none
Resteep: Zarafina Black-Loose-Medium
Beautiful! Just as robust as the first cup.
I added a touch of sweetened coconut milk, which brought out the coconut meat flavor.
I think it could easily have done another steep, only I had to leave and get my train into work.
