drank Coconut Cream Pie by 52teas
795 tasting notes

3 level tsp., 500 ml. water, in my Breville.

I haven’t had a flavored tea in a while. Mostly it’s because my boyfriend is a purist (with the exception of his beloved Moroccan Mint – which even that isn’t all that crazy) and at night when I make tea he usually wants some. I accept that his palate is different than mine, most of the time.

But it is REALLY HARD to accept his rigidity when I have something like this tea. This tea that is coconutty and creamy and blends so well with a black base. I add milk and sugar to make this pop, and I either like having it as a dessert tea by itself, or a breakfast tea when I’ll have time in the morning to savor it.

And savor it I am, as I start seriously attacking studying for my final tomorrow. (Which means you will definitely be seeing a late night mate tasting note from me, as is customary around exam time). :)

Hey at least your boy-creature drinks tea – mine will barely touch it. :D

I am glad that he will at least try the good stuff – it gives me an excuse to buy it!

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
