drank Coconut Vanilla White by TeaFrog
183 tasting notes

I picked up my TeaFrog package at the post office today, and couldn’t wait to start trying the samples I bought.

Coconut Vanilla White was my first choice, as I had high hopes for this one. I like white tea, coconut, and vanilla. It should be a winner.

The smell of the dry tea is beautiful. Coconut and vanilla. Yum. I was careful to only steep it for 2 min, and there was no astringency when I drank it. With every sip, I taste the coconut, and then the vanilla. I’m not sure what the rosebuds are adding, but the flavours blend well.

I tried a second infusion at 75C for 4 min. The taste of the tea was more apparent, and it was also a touch astringent. I’ll stick to 2 min in the future.

This is a nice, light, sweet tea. I love teas that I don’t have to sweeten, as I never remember to add sugar, anyway. It’s not my favourite tea ever, but pretty darn good. I hope the rest of TeaFrog’s teas are this good.

Bio

I’m a vegan, board-game playing, avid reader who likes to run and/or lift weights depending on my mood (and current injuries).

I’m fairly new to tea, but my collection seems to be growing at an exponential rate. Herbals, greens, whites, and now oolongs are my teas of choice at the moment. I haven’t developed a taste for black yet (if it’s something you can develop a taste for).
