235 Tasting Notes
I’m running out of teas to review! Need a DT run soon!!! Plus totally need more mint julep.
I love coconut as a flavour addition and as the real thing and imbued into teas. I made it iced AND hot. In the pouch this smells like coconut cream. The vanilla loves being in bed with the coconut they appear to be soulmates.Smells sweet and makes my mouth water. Reminds me of coconut cream pastries and I don’t know why but also something sexy like full body massages(?)
This beauty is about to get courted.hard.
Hot:The smell is definately more sensual and warm in the mug.Still sweet but more moody.
As for hot taste. It’s a cup of alright.Still sweet but it lost that sex appeal and just seems a coconut white tea. A pretty good one though. Let’s check it out iced.
Cold(iced): much better! The tea is at home on ice truly.the coconut is wow.the creaminess totally cool and sexy.. Reminds me of bikinis and umbrellas under a gold soaked sky.Toes burying into sand warm like toast.sticking a tiny blue umbrella in it for sure!
Doesn’t have the fruity of Tropicalia but is like the very adult need ID to get in version…drink!
Very refreshing. Very elegant. Very sexy and mature( without the lines)
Verdict: A summer staple white tea. Iced or die.Could see mixing it or adding booze. Lovely refreshing creamy and composed of the nicest Bai Mu Dan white tea leaves. Don’t think this is a fave yet…we need a few more clandestine meetings over the summer..this is the drink to sponsor affairs over the summer.
Having it iced today.Lovely!
I’m so sad that it is getting removed from DT’s stock!!!
I’m happy I stocked up and maybe they will bring it up for a revival but I blame you guys that never gave it a shake..Damn brilliant tea..I will miss you….the perfect fruity black tea..full of gorgeous fruit perversion and complexity..bursting with gentleness or a a huge tarty kiss. I Love you Paradise Found. We will meet again across the great void.
Woke up full of grump and snark today and outside it is rainy and I soooooo do not want to leave the house today. I need as serious boost and this is the last mate I have that I have not tried yet it is steeping now.
Smells lemony which I love even if it is in a sore throat lozenge kind of way.I will drink anything today if it will wake me up and stop the rain. I love Dt’s stimulant teas they are like strapping you to a rocket or gently punching you awake…I always end up full of energy with no real burn out like energy drinks or too much caffeine. Today either of those are much needed boosts.
Once brewed it smells even more wellness-tea like but I’d drink rocket fuel right now. It tastes like lemony wellness..but unlike wellness teas this isn’t gross or boring it is actually totally mellow,refreshing and is a totally pleasant start to any day I am unprepared for the energy boost because it doesn’t taste like any incoming energy. It is a perfectly drinkable drink. Wonder if icing would be nice.
The taste doesn’t blow my mind but I like it. It is mellow,bright and a kick in the ass(hopefully)
Well I feel more awake but nothing like I wanted. What a disappointment! No punch no kick. Just mellow. Sigh major points docked unless I get serious energy in like 5 . I remember Amazonian Chain being OMG IM FLYING energy this is meh.like the taste though .
Steeped 4 minutes maybe a little less,put in a shallow tsp.
If this gentle steep doesn’t work I’m done I have too many fussy teas this better be amazing or I’m trading it. ( anyone up for trades btw?)
Okay so it is much better, not bitter. Pretty! Underwhelming but when done right it is nice oh wait further I drink the more bitter it gets ( exhausted sigh)now iced: Same exact thing happens nice then descends into bitterness. … Bye bye Kokomo seems our visits start well then descend into shittiness towards each other.
Not a win for DT change the formula please because this is like a bad ex you keep going to for a good kiss and mediocre to bad sex.
Yeah I said it.
My client cancelled today,so I get to bum around after a busy exhausting but great week. The world outside isn’t sunny anymore but grey and rainy and decidedly colourless. I need something very different to warm the bones and summon the sun.
I got 15 teams of this on my DT birthday shop. I’m not crazy about ginger but I love DT’s interpretations like strawberry ginger and even splash. There is a vision of ginger as sexy spicy and sometimes remarkably subtle.
In the pouch it smells a little spicy,layered under a definite sweetness of creamy coconut and a balancing base of lemongrass.
I’ve never had a WHITE ginger tea so this is a brand new experience.
Okay,down the hatch!
The Ginger is surprisingly and the coconut is apparent but not overwhelming either. There is a left over spiciness like you ate a spicy meal hours ago but it is not heavy or unpleasant. This is a nice tea but noy mind blowing in any way it is light and spicy and just a little creamy.
Reminds me of spicy meals in my far memory that I enjoyed.
Gets spicier as the mug empties. Not unpleasantly.
Perfect for people who are scared of aggressive ginger flavour but enjoy it in a more subtle manner. Perfect for adding a little spice to a cold,wet day.
Final Verdict: Unsurprising but pleasant and mild. I don’t think I’ll pick up anymore and may trade my few grams to my bff to try. Mediocre overall.
