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.

Bio

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).
