drank Kiwifruit Cocoanut by Handmade Tea
69 tasting notes

Brewed properly (ie. not in a contaminated strainer), I really love this tea. Solid black base with a little astringency and bright leathery notes, which are nicely matched to the sweet kiwi and creamy coconut. So far all the Handmade teas have been well-balanced to my palate—not too much of anything, usually exactly enough.

So far I’ve only had this plain & hot, but I think it would be great iced or dessert-style with loads of sugar and cream.

I love tasting things. Slowly, I’m getting better at it.

I am a coffee convert; the 5+ cups of strong coffee I used to drink every day has trickled down to 1-2 cups a week, if a pot’s already brewed and I’m feeling lazy. Otherwise, tea all the way!

It’s been a few months now, which is enough for me to know that everyone likes different things about their cup. Personally I like my teas the way I like my men—strong and naked, with no artificial flavors or preservatives. Also dry, and in a tin. Hah!

Life is interesting and occasionally irritating. Because of this, I am sometimes laser-eyed, but a nice cup of tea usually helps.
