I probably drink too much caffeine (if you look at my tea log you will not be surprised!)

I thought I would try this as a tea for dessert or afternoon. I was a little worried when I opened the bag, it smells a bit “fakey”, like artificial somehow. I am not sure if this due to the tea itself or by virtue of the fact that it’s a decaf tea. I think I steeped this for 3-4 minutes with boiling water and I did not add sugar, I did add soymilk. The description here says it has a rich and “coppery” flavor, which is definitely true, if copper had a flavor I think this would be it. I am wondering if this is a ceylon which is not my favorite thing among black teas. I think the coconut comes through pretty well here. It is not perfection but it is nice.

This is a good choice for an evening dessert type of tea if you don’t want to stay up all night. I might get some more eventually… I did get two steeps out of it which is also a bonus.

I think The base tea is a Ceylon, because I’ve had quite a few Ceylons, that I guess, could be described as coppery.

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
