meh…I wanted more banana and coconut, it’s hints of favor in a roasty vegetal brew.

brings out the coconut flavor

It’s an OK cup, but I really haven’t been fond of any hojicha teas.

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).

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
