Despite the fact that I have a lot of ROT canisters that I badly need to sip down, I bought 2 more when I was at Whole Foods 2 weeks ago.

Obviously this is one of them.

I am not a huge coconut fan, but I have a mild like for them and have really gotten into putting lime juice in with it. (Though this seems to work better with colder teas.) This time around I put in some salt as well, meh that made it taste weird. (Sometimes it works, other times…not so much.) I think I also put to much lime juice.

Despite both of those though, I am enjoying my cup.

I do wish however….that ROT wasn’t quite so expensive. Though at least they are alittle bit more accessible (At the moment. Where I’m moving this summer, the nearest tea places at all are in Ann Arbor, which about half hour-45 min from where I will be living. Though bonus is that I’ll be nearer to The British Pantry in Tecumseh.)

If your obsessed with coconut, then this tea is worth a try.

Would I buy this again? It depends on how it does as a iced tea.

Flavors: Coconut, Vanilla

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 0 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML

Don’t worry, I have aROT of canisters too! I have 2 full shelves of them…and I keep sharing them too! I find their tea bags go a long way.

Hello.Kiki

A half hour isn’t too bad! That’s my drive to work everyday. If you find any cool tea places in MI, please share! I don’t even know where to start looking, lol

Hello Kiki-Crazy Wisdom’s Bookstore/teahouse in Ann Arbor is really cool, especially if you like New Age/Alternate Religions, funky jewelry, etc. Plus the tea house on the 2nd floor is really nice, homey atmosphere the staff is pretty accomadating. Tranquilitea in Plymouth is really nice though they do not serve the tea. Their prices are reasonable (Like about averagely 3.50 an ounce.) British Pantry like I mentioned above is pretty cool, though only been there once so far. Umm…There are a few other tea spots in Ann Arbor but I have not been to them yet, like Tea Haus. If you get down to Royal Oak there is also Goldfish Tea (on 4th street.) They specialize in Chinese teas. They serve and sell their teas as well as a nice selection of tea accessories. 2 Japanese Grocery stores (that are owned by the same company.) Noble Fish in Clawson and One World Market in Novi has reasonably priced tea accessories and bonus if you like Japanese food stuffs. Both stores also have Sushi bars, but make sure to find out about hours before going, as they can be kind of limited…and look up reviews of both on YELP.
