drank Coconut Cabana by The Tea Spot
1957 tasting notes

Sipdown and backlog, 238. I am traveling again, this time off to California, and was so busy getting ready yesterday that I completely forgot to log the sipdown of this tea.

This tea was less than impressive. I wanted to love this tea, as I love milk oolongs and I love coconut oolongs, but my taste in milk oolongs is picky so I guess it’s not too surprising that this one would have ended up not one of my favorites. It’s tasty enough to drink, but it’s not nearly as creamy and coconutty as I would have hoped. Oh well, good to sip it down.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
