A Teavana finally opened in a nearby city! I kind of failed at life though and forgot to check out the reviews here and make a list before going to the mall, so I had to wing it. I’ve been wanting to expand my oolong selection so this automatically grabbed my attention when I saw this in the store. The decant aroma of chocolate and coconut wafted from the giant tin of this, and I just had to have it.
The dry leaf is quite attractive. There are carob pieces, big beautiful shreds of coconut, and rose petals.
Steeped, the liquor is lighter than expected. And when it come to the aroma, it reminds me of the coconut truffles I made a couple Christmases ago.
Onto the taste. I can detect hints of chocolate, coconut, and nuts. It makes me think of a flavoured coffee creamer. The flavours really work with the oolong.
Next time, I’ll use more dry leaf but overall, I am very happy with this tea.
ETA: I have noticed though that this tea is rather weak, even when you add more dry leaf, so I’m lowering my rating. For the price, there should be more flavour.
