After skiing all morning, I need something with some caffeine. So, I pulled out this sample. I’ve been quite frankly a little scared of it. I wasn’t sure I’d like coconut in tea and I generally stay away from green tea as it gives me migraines (well, see if I’ll be punished for this tea later).
When I opened the package and smelled it, it smelled just like those square coconut cookies with ridges on the top. I can’t remember what they are called or whether they even make them anymore. I just remember them from when I was a kid.
Brewed, I get alternating tastes of a light green tea with floral notes (I think I smell some jasmine in there) and the coconut cookie taste. Yum!!
Update – Second steeping still tasting good. My husband took the second steeping of this sample and then told me to put it on the shopping list and he doesn’t normally like green tea (or much flavored tea for that matter).
