This is definitely my most favorite tea! If you are a coconut lover and looking for a black tea to give you both energy and to give you that general feeling of warmth and happiness then you should try this one! I drink this most mornings and this is a good every day tea for me. Dry it smells amazing, I always end up breathing this one in for a bit before I actually drink it. The steeped tea smells delicious but it’s more muted than the dry smell. It’s kind of a dark and heavy full-bodied black tea, with predominantly coconut flavors with a raspberry aftertaste. I agree with the other teas that this one is easy to oversteep. It says to steep it for 4-5 minutes I think… and I think this one would taste the best more around the 3.5 minute range. I usually end up oversteeping everything and this one when oversteeped and black can have a slight astringent taste to it. I find when I use Dvaid’s Tea vanilla agave nectar it counteracts this and sweetens it up. I usually add about a teaspoon of the vanilla nectar to this tea and it goes together perfectly. It’s also good with a splash of milk, but I find this tea doesn’t need milk to make it taste good. And this morning I sadly discovered that I only had about a teaspoon left of this (seems someone’s been raiding my stash) soo I added half a teaspoon of David’s Chocolate Cake (which is also a black) and it actually went together really nicely. Like a chocolate raspberry and coconut truffle. Hope this was helpful! Happy Canada Day :)

Yum. That sounds good. I might have to try that combination.
