I really really like this one! When I first smelled it at the store, it reminded me of the cookies with lemon creme filling, but upon smelling it brewed and tasting it, the ginger comes out more, so it reminds me of ginger cookies with lemon icing or creme. The coconut is not terribly obvious, but on some sniffs, I do also get a coconut cream pie with lemon meringue pie mix. Geez, this tea makes me soo hungry!! :P
The first few times I had it, I only sweetened it, but with this last steep I took a page from the DAVIDsTEA book and added milk to it even though it is a white tea. And you know what? It’s awesome. It’s even more cream pie like. I almost picked up some coconut milk from the store yesterday, but I wasn’t sure what kind to get, so I skipped that for now til I know more about what to try. I also can’t wait to try this iced. I think it will be fantastic.
Am I gonna restock this one? You betcha! I routinely get stomach issues, so I thrive on ginger, and it is good in teas, and this is an extremely pleasant way to get some ginger in me. More tasty than pills, though perhaps not as potent. I think for serious ginger needs, I’d need something a bit stronger like Ginger Pu Erh or Super Ginger, but they aren’t as tasty as this…though I wonder if they’d cocktail with this at all. Hmmm….
Anyhow, my cuppa is getting too cold, so I need to get back to it, but this is one tea from the new Spring Collection that I really like. Coconut Oolong probably Tuesday when I am off and can spend time with multiple steeps.
