drank Coco-Lemon Thai by DAVIDsTEA
505 tasting notes

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.

Bio

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
