Delicious, sweet (but not cloying), and rather balanced in flavors! Highly recommend this one.

Flavors: Coconut, Honey
This is definitely better cold, in my opinion. I first sampled this at a street fair and immediately had to have some because it was so amazing. It has such a wonderful coconut flavor when cold and just feels so refreshing. I happen to have tried it warm tonight and wasn’t loving it nearly as much.
On a side note, the bag had a sort of alcohol-type smell when first opened (the coconut oil I guess??) that was off-putting. It goes away after being brewed for a few minutes. Also, the bits are quite small and seem to come out of many of the tea balls I have. My mesh strainer is the only one that this stood a chance in.
Lavender White – One Love Tea – 2/6/14
? minutes, 185 degrees
While it was steeping and then cooling, my entire desk smelled like lavender and it was very nice.
Tasting this without sweetener, it is extremely flowery and a little bit bitter but strangely I don’t think that the bitterness came from the white tea but kind of from the lavender. Once the sugar has been added, the flower taste becomes more pleasant and the base tea comes out a bit more. I’m not entirely sure that lavender and white tea are the only ingredients here, there are several brown stick things that are in that I can’t identify. As it cools, the flowery aftertaste comes on stronger which is nice at first but quickly turns sickly as it lingers so I am drinking this fast and looking for a food item for after it. I think my mint Aero bar from England will do.
The lavender is really strong in this one! Which is a good thing of course. Steeped up great – not bitter or anything, just tasty lavendery goodness. This place is local for me – they had a Living Social coupon which was cool. The building was kind of hard to find but so far it’s been worth it!
