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.
