Thanks to SoccerMom for turning me on to this tea.

First, you smell the tea as it comes up to your nose and you smell coconut custard.

MilitiaJim is flummoxed how something can smell like a texture, but it does.

Then you sip, at first I was sad, it was rooibos. Don’t get me wrong I love rooibos but I wanted coconut custard.

As I swallow the sip I start to taste coconut shell, then coconut.

Then I swallow and there is the coconut pie! Delicious.

Strange the flavor is all in the swallow.

Post-Steep Additives: pinch of German rock sugar
sweeter, yum!

Resteep: 7 min, weak, 10+ min, weak but drinkable

Wow, a 95?? Yay! A tea that has passed the AmazonV test! It’s been awhile since you’ve rated over mediocrity. :) I have this, and will be re-visiting it because of you. :)

LOL! yea i am pretty fussy I was one of those kids who had a peanut butter and fluff sandwich every day because nothing else would do for years :)

This sounds wonderful! Suddenly I’m craving my grandma’s homemade custard pie with nutmeg on top.

AmazonV

ooo, ooo! @gmathis I think perhaps i will put a little nutmeg in this with the pinch of sugar!

SoccerMom

YEA!!! I am SOO glad you liked it!! Sometimes just because you like it (meaning me) doesn’t mean the other person you are recommending it to will. Isn’t this like one of the best rooibos blends ever?? I’ve never purchased 8 ounces of any tea or rooibos but I proudly have 8 ounces of this and I am going to make a cup right now!

AmazonV

I am sure it helps that i like coconut, like coconut custard and like rooibos :)

SoccerMom

I don’t like all coconut teas though. I didn’t like the GM Coconut Pouchong. I guess that’s why I am so happy I found this one that I do enjoy.

Mmm…this sounds yummy. I saw a frozen coconut cream custard pie at the store today, but I didn’t buy it. I’m not a big fan of coconut (bad experience with coconut rum one night when I was a teenager) but coconut cream custard just sounds like it has to be good.

Shanti, your coconut rum story sounds very similar to my Riunite Lambrusco experience of the early 90’s. ;)

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).

~~~~~~~~*~
0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
