drank Cocomama Lime by DAVIDsTEA
73 tasting notes

I was happy to get a sample tin of this one, because I wouldn’t have bought it without smelling or trying it first.
You can see lots of lime peel and coconut shreds, plus it smells intensely sweet and limey, dry. I steeped the whole sample (1 and 1/4 davids perfect teaspoon-ful) for 6 minutes, and the lime smell got mellower, but it still very present. I took a sip, and was surprised. It tasted like lime with black tea, and kind of bitter (I steeped it for the longest time suggested, and used less water since I’ll be adding icecubes to cool it down).
It was really decent though! Love how the black tea was present almost as much as the lime. (No coconut yet though…)
It definitely needed sugar though, so I added almost 2 tsps! (I like my iced tea much sweeter than if it was hot.)
Anyways let it cool down completely in the freezer for a bit, and now it tastes quite nice. Just like a good iced tea spiked with lime. Definitely not much coconut though, if any.
If you enjoy lime in your drinks, this is a tea for you. I don’t always care for it, but have to admit that this is another job pretty well done from Davids tea!
