Oh my goodness!

I love coconut and this smells really good… and yes I see a bunch of coconut flakes in the package. After reading Nicole’s note I was a little bummed, but was hoping that I would like this more than she did.

I agree the color is a bit light with this tea and I’m not getting a ton of “tea” flavor from the black tea but with a bit of soymilk and turbinado sugar this is a nice after lunch/dessert sort of drink. Plain, it leaves something to be desired. I may try mixing this with some straight black tea to see what happens. Overall, okay but not one of my favorites from the company so far.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec

Yeah, I haven’t gotten around to mixing it with some more black tea. It smells amazing and I hope it can be saved. :)

Nicole and Amy oh, we have pulled this tea based upon reviews and our own taste testing. We are going to try to get the proper coconut that we used for our first batch to regain the flavor it had before. We will keep you updated on the progress! :)

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
