I’m not the biggest fan of coconut, but this smelled more cake-y rather than coconut and ahhh such a wonderful dry leaf scent :)
Steeping, this takes on a light amber liquor, and the coconut does get more pronounced.
I really like how this has a slight vanilla flavour, and the coconut isn’t overpowering. I despise coconut, and I’m still trying coconut teas, and this one is definitely one of the better ones! Sorta hoped that the cake scent

Thank you QueenOfTarts for sending this my way!

You’re braver than I am. I generally skip anything that is at least called coconut something.

Ahh I forgot to thank QueenOfTarts for this sample!
Yeah, I never willingly buy anything with coconut or other flavours I’m not a fan of, but since it was given to me in a swap, it’s a chance for me to try something I probably would have never picked up :)

Gentle, creamy sweetness. Wonderful with a bit of honey and milk. As I always do with my teas, I blend this with a base tea (like an Assam or English Breakfast) to get just the right level of flavor – tea ratio for my tastes. But out of all the flavored teas I’ve tried so far, this one seems to have the most staying power. I have this one as part of my morning blend nearly every day.

Bring it on! This tea has depth, some smokiness, but not too much. I use this one as a base tea and blend in some smoother flavored teas like a Hazelnut or Creme Brûlée tea. The Four Horsemen can easily stand on its own, but I love the way it kicks up the flavor on other loose leaf teas.

This tea smells buttery, sweet and a tiny bit fruity. There is also something in the background that reminds me of yogurt. I’m pleased to say that the coconut is not too overwhelming as far as the scent is concerned. Yes, I do like coconut, but it has to be “just so” in a tea or else I won’t enjoy it. Coconut has the potential to become overpowering, sour and too sweet. If scent is any indication, I think I will enjoy this cup!

Sipping… it takes a little while for the flavor to develop on the tongue. The first part of the sip leads you to believe you’re drinking plain hot water or a very weak white tea. As the sip continues, the sweet coconut blossoms and becomes apparent. The finish is sweet and a little bit of that tangy sourness that coconut tends to leave behind.

I did steep this tea for a rather short amount of time, about 2 minutes (White tea and I usually don’t get along well, plus I find it can be oversteeped quite easily!). This blend is soothing and soft — it reminds me a bit of a light linen blanket. Not too much or too little, but has just the right amount of flavor to provide you with comfort. I do like this tea, but don’t think I would buy it again. It doesn’t really call to me the way other teas do, but happy to have had a cup this afternoon!

All but identical to TeaHaus’s Strawberry Mint Lavender, but not quite as sweet

Not much flavor or aroma but drinkable. I guess it was supposed to be designed to be Iced Tea?

White and Green. I don’t taste anything like plum. As it’s a blend, I’m not sure how to brew it (I don’t have the original packaging).
