drank Cocomint Cream by DAVIDsTEA
1693 tasting notes

Today has been rough. So rough. The baby was miserable and wouldn’t sleep, and it’s just compounded so that it’s nearly midnight and she’s still awake and grumpy and I’m still awake and possibly grumpier. :| #momlife

Tried a few things and nothing worked so I took a little break to brew up a cup of Cocomint Cream while I left her to play with some toys. BEST CHOICE EVER.

DavidsTea better have something damn amazing to replace this because I am already sad that it’s going. I went into one of the stores and they are out of stock and don’t think they will get anymore in. I have one more store to check, otherwise I only have a precious 30g left.

Sadness. So much sadness. If I ever do experiment with blending teas, I’ll just have to make this one my damn self. :| #shakesfist

You should still be able to buy it online! I agree… this one’s pretty good even for a mint disliker like me!

Cavocorax

Yeah there is that! :D I’m not big on mint either but apparently I love coconut tea.

Kittenna

Have you tried any variants of coconut oolong? (E.g. Golden Moon’s Coconot Pouchong, ZenTea’s Coconut Oolong)?

Cavocorax

Yeah I have ZenTea’s Coconut Oolong. That free sample they sent was the best thing they could have done bc I’m addicted!

Kittenna

Hahahahaha, awesome! I was thinking that for a coconut lover, that’s definitely one you have to try (they’re all more or less equivalent, in my opinion).

Cavocorax

The baby is finally sleeping!!! I can enjoy the last few sips of my tea in peace, then crawl to bed.

Cavocorax

Kittenna – all coconut oolongs are equivelent, or all coconut blends in general? Those are the only two I’ve had but I’m instantly hooked.

Kittenna

Sorry, I definitely only meant green coconut oolongs seem to all be similar (I’m sure there are variations, but I’ve tried about four and they all are approximately the same in terms of deliciousness for me). Coconut blends vary like crazy!! I have yet to find a really good coconut black that works for me… some are soapy, others have terrible base teas… (Buttered Rum was good, but I think my last batch may have been bad…). But yeah, coconut in blends seems to be very, very hit or miss. Cocomint Cream is probably one of the best coconutty blends I’ve had. I also really enjoy Zhena’s Gypsy Tea Coconut Chai. I feel like there are others, but can’t currently remember…

Kittenna

Also, glad the baby’s finally sleeping! I should be sleeping as well, haha… just enjoying the last of my very cold teas first. And possibly placing a Verdant order…

Cavocorax

Hahah. Late night tea orders are the worst. At that point ALL WILLPOWER IS GONE. (I am not going to check out Verdan’t site… not gonna).

And I totally see what you mean. :) Good to know about the oolongs. Soapy doesn’t sound good – I guess I should be careful if I find a coconut black and test it out before I stock up. Well… that’s something I should do before buying 100g of ANYTHING really.

Kittenna

YES! Buy only sample sizes!!!! Don’t stock up on anything for a while unless you love it and it’s limited edition. Otherwise you end up with 100g tins of teas you thought you liked until you found something better…. (I made that mistake. Sigh.)

At least my Verdant order was already planned, and I added nothing extra to it, so that’s good. I don’t need more tea, but really wanted to try their new ones! Haha.

Claire

Hope you finally got some sleep!

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
