The girls at my store when I got this today said it was hands down the favourite of the staff from this winter collection. But one girl had a caveat, even though she liked it she got a Bravissimo flavour from it. Curious, this was my first tea to try when I got home with my new hoard.

Dry, this smells exactly like its name, coconut with spearmint and a bit of a creamy undertone. Like mint chip ice cream. Sounds delicious, right? I was definitely eager to sip in.

After brew, my first sips? Definitely Bravissimo. I had to go back and check the ingredients to see if there was anise or fennel or even lemongrass in here. Not seeing any of the above, I determinedly kept sipping. As my cup cooled the mint came out more and the fennel-like aspects fell to the background. It isn’t my favourite tea, but I wouldn’t hesitate to offer it to a mint ice cream lover, either. Even after brewing that’s the dominant smell of both the tea and the soaked leaves.

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
