The scent of the leaves was intriguing, you smelled some date, along with vanilla and coconut. The leaves were also blended with pieces of coconut, which I thought was a nice touch. The aroma of the brewed tea was nice. It was sweet and complex, you were smelling multiple things and they all smelled good together.

The taste of tea (brewed hot with sugar) displayed the complexity and intrigue of the smells going on. There was a date flavor that was very well blended with vanilla and black tea. However, I could not taste the coconut, it appeared slightly at the end as an aftertaste of the tea, but it was not as prominent as it was in smelling.

Overall, I enjoyed the tea, but few that I could not drink it more than a few more times.

Bio

I am a sarcastic perfectionist, a computer nerd, a game geek, an avid reader, a gadget guru, a wine (and tea) enthusiast, and (in my spare time) a chemist.

As I mentioned, I am a chemist, research and development to be exact, so when evaluating tea, it is much like evaluating my products: I will find the flaws and do my very best to fix them because it is what I love to do. Along those lines, nothing is perfect, but can have perfect qualities, I will highlight those also.

I made a preliminary guide to my rating scale:
0-19 – Did not like anything about the tea, feel it cannot be saved without being reformulated.
20-40 – Did not like the tea, it can be saved with extreme amounts of tweaking (i.e., sugar, milk, honey and or blending with another tea)
41-60 – Neutral about the tea, it can be helped or hurt by additives or blends, varied temperatures and steep times
61-70 – Decent tea, needs a little bit of help to get it in the place I like it, but definitely not out of reach
71-80 – Quality tea, liked it, will try again
81-90 – Really enjoyed the tea, high quality, will continue to drink the tea, not looking for something better
91-100 – Loved the tea, will continue to brew and drink and spread the word about the tea to everyone
