I’m sorry to say this one was a bit disappointing to me after the name of coconut macaroon because I really wanted it to taste more macaroon-y!

The smell of this is totally divine in both the dry leaf and the brewed tea. But the flavor is a bit weak, it’s a nice green rooibos blend that has some slight coconut flavor. I did try this some with soymilk and that improved the flavor a bit but I liked it more when I added a touch of maple syrup. Anyway, that’s already a lot of doctoring up to do. If you like green rooibos, and coconuts and you don’t mind sweetening this a bit it could be perfect for you! I have a whole tin of it now so I will surely find a way to love it more, maybe by adding some rum. :)

Do you ever use coconut milk instead of soy? I happen to like it better. Soy makes me feel icky anyway…so if you can try some coconut milk instead. My family history goes way back in S. F. to about the 1830’s at least on my Grandmother’s side and my dad was born there, both grandparents on both sides in the 1906 earthquake too. Now…only my son lives in S. F. But I do love it here in Colorado too. Too bad your dessert coconut macaroon was a disapointment!

I have had coconut milk a few times but we like plain soy milk better esp. for cereal. No doubt this tea would be better with some coconut milk in it!

I love SF but have heard great things about Colorado too, I should go for a visit soon. :)

This is a Rooibos I could learn to like. :)) I always thought Colorado was the prettiest state I’ve seen. NO…….I thought it AND it is. :))

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
