I am a huge coconut fan and will drink just about any coconut tea. I have purchased this more than once. I like to have some bag teas around for when I am in a hurry, and this is my go to caffeine tea for those occasions. I do NOT follow the directions, which makes all the difference! I leave the bag in my cup and just never take it out. It makes a much stronger brew that way. I do not milk it, but if you want a hot milk tea that is still pretty strong, just do not put water in! Pour boiling milk over the bag and you get the milk tea flavour without watering it down.
This also makes a decent little tea for cooking. I made a cake with it and it was rather nice.

Bio

26 year old American currently on her 5th year in Japan. Hobbies include tea, tea ceremony, samisen, painting, drawing, blogging, reading.

My “dream job” would be owning a funky little tea shop that makes enough to pay the bills while working with what I love. Selling tea by the cup and pot, little baked treats to compliment the flavors, and maybe some art from local artists on the wall. Sigh…

I am not above a bag tea, though I prefer loose teas. I’ve lived in Japan for quite a while and travel around asia when I can. I of course love finding and buying local teas where ever I go! I love living somewhere that stop and shops sell tea bottles and boxes rather than colas. My favorite over the counter tea is Teh Botol, a Jasmine tea I found in Indonesia. I also like Sokenbicha (爽健美茶) in Japan.

I love all teas, but have a stronger love for the greens and blacks. I require caffeine and tend to sip tea all day. Tea=love!
