Awwwww nuts! ;)
Yep, I can definitely taste the Walnut here. It’s mighty good. The coconut is there to. The pair seem to get along well together. In my mind, they have a rather similar mouthfeel so perhaps that’s why?
However, I’m not so sure i like the addition of pineapple. It lends a fruity aspect that I feel just doesn’t belong. Also, there is an odd stale note/scent. Often, I notice that with nuts in general, so don’t go by my note. People tell me they don’t taste it when I often do so it might just be my wacky buds.
Anyhow, I like this tea! Of course it is making the roof of my mouth a little raw so I’m not sure about a second infusion :(

Yeah, I bet that stale note is just an artifact of the presence of nuts. I get it with walnuts in particular (like DT’s Snow Bunny).

Yea probably from the nuts… they go stale/rancid relatively quickly. This is one of my favourite teas.

Good to know I’m not alone in this. I haven’t tried Snow Bunny, that I recall.
Tattooed: I wonder if there is a big variance between different batches

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
