This tea has been be my current all time favorite. The first think you notice when you open up the bag is the smell of coconut. Its a sweet smell and something that brings me back to our holiday in Hawaii when my daughter was given a fresh coconut from the chief who was visiting our resort. I used it to make nice coconut smoothies and this tea reminds me of that.

The first few seconds after I placed my tea ball into my travel mug I noticed right away that a nice caramel colouring started.

After 4 mins and 30 seconds I added my sugar and milk. This made a lovely cream caramel colour.

The feelings I get with this tea are very lovely because of the memories it digs up. It makes me feel warm and happy, even giving me a soothing and whimsical feeling of being on the beach listening to the ocean splashing at the shore. The taste with this tea is amazing. I do not notice much of the raspberries, but they are there. The coconut is very strong in this tea so if your not a coconut fan I would not suggest you try this.

I did notice that adding the milk in it you get an almost smoothy like taste to it. I use skim milk in everything I think and I think if you added a high fat milk like 2% or higher you would increase this smoothy taste.

As for the black tea, you do get a good under tone of it. Its not bitter at all.

All in all I love this tea and can not praise it enough, even my 2 year old son enjoys this tea, though I do limit his in take due to the caffeine in it. I would highly suggest trying this tea, you will not be disappointed.

Word of caution, do not over steep. I found that the one time I did this the black tea made it very bitter. The same goes for under steeping it, you will just get a very bland taste. This tea does not “need” any kind of sweetener but if you are to add some I would advise against honey as you would add in a whole new level of flavor doing that.
