This was actually was the first tea that caught my eye at Davidstea in awhile. Coconut and chocolate…perhaps I was hopeful it would be somewhat like Harney&Sons Soho blend…but it isn’t.
While at the store, I was originally planning to get 25 grams or so, but as it turned out, this was the tea they were sampling, so tried a small sample glass of it first. And I’m glad I did, for although the dry blend smells quite nice and rich and promising, the taste does not nearly compare. Any chocolate or coconut or nuttiness of any kind is lacking, and although often the samples in store are not as good as when brewed at home, there was just something off about the taste that I can’t describe…an aftertaste of some sort. So disappointing! As it turned out I didn’t buy any to take home – perhaps it would have tasted better if brewed differently, but didn’t want to even bother. Sigh.
