So when I first heard of this tea, I was SO excited I had to tell my friend who is a huge coconut fan. COCONUT and MINT?! Weird combo but oh so interesting! When I got to smell the dry leaves at the store, I was actually disappointed. I’m not a mint fan and the mint smell was definitely there, somehow I was hoping it would be more coconutty. Anyways, that was probably 3 months ago when it first came out. On 12/12/12 (woohoo!) I went to a DAVIDsTEA with my friend who was celebrating her birthday and I treated her to a Red Velvet Cake latte (with a candle on top!). I also wanted to get myself a tea to go too. I thought out loud “Which tea would make a good soy latte?” The Tea Guide told me “Cocomint cream!” a little hesitant but also lazy to think of anything, I agreed to it.
IT WAS AMAZING.
So amazing that it convinced me to get myself a 100 gram tin the next time I dropped by a store.
I did brew it on it’s own as a straight tea and yes, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I did when it was a latte but it’s not bad.
The latte had a bit of agave added to it.
Something about the combination of the milk with the mint made it so creamy. Initial taste was almost similar to sipping into a mint ice cream but with a really pleasant coconut cream aftertaste.
I dislike strong mint teas, but this has sort of opened up some new doors for me.
Cocomint cream? High five to you, cocomint cream. YOU GO COCOMINT CREAM! (and a hi5 to you if you get my lame reference :P)
