This had beautiful long green tea leaves as I was scooping into the tea ball. I had to break one of the leaves to fit it into the tea ball. Seeing that always just makes me extra enthusiastic for what I’m about to drink. I’m also getting a soft but strong coconut scent wafting from the resealable bag when I scoop. It makes me happy.

The coconut scent keeps wafting from the cup while it steeps and cools. This is a soft, unsweetened coconut scent.

The focus of this is definitely on the coconut, rather than the green tea. My first drink is almost pure coconut flavor – I don’t even notice the green tea. Subsequent sips bring out the green tea flavor more (there’s a tiny bit of bitterness from the green tea, but I like that), but the coconut doesn’t disappear. Instead, they blend beautifully together.

2nd infusion – left the tea ball in the cup his time. The flavor is a bit lighter, but still delightful.

My first review!

This is a very fluffy and light tea, so I used I bit more than I usually would for most teas. While steeping, this has a pleasant floral scent – predominantly chamomile, though I can detect a little bit of rose if I look for it. It’s definitely a calming scent.

I’m letting this steep awhile, partially because I’ve burned my tongue too many times by being a little too eager to drink my tea. I’ve probably oversteeped my teas many times, but I’ve never had a huge problem with the flavor.

There is a very mild sweetness to this, like a drop of honey among the (not-too) bitter flowers. The chamomile is the predominant note here, blending with the other florals.

This is definitely a very soothing tea. The scent (combined wiih the warmth) just relaxes me, as it’s meant to.

Flavors: Floral, Honey

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 3 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

This is a tea that I picked up on my recent visit to the steeping room. Lately, I’ve found that I’ve mostly been sticking to flavored black teas, so I’m trying to get myself to branch out a little bit more. I really love jasmine green teas, but for some reason I never seem to go for them. I happened to pick this one up to smell, and it was AMAZING. I knew I had to get it. I tried it for the first time yesterday and ended up having about three cups of it.

The jasmine is the main flavor here, with the blueberry adding a nice sweetness and some dimension to the flavor. One thing that tends to make me shy away from green teas, is that I tend to oversteep them and make them bitter. This one, however, seemed very resistant to oversteeping, which is a nice added bonus for me!

Backlog:

A very subtle peach note. The black tea is definitely the star of this show – which is the way it should be when it comes to tea, don’t you think?

The black tea is brisk and a bit more astringent than I would like it to be. It’s a pleasant black tea with peach flavors but it’s not the best peach flavored black tea I’ve encountered. It’s just alright.
