I was craving a coconut tea today, maybe because it’s been colder here, and I just feel like being wrapped in a warm, cozy, coconut bliss. Haha, anyways, I finally got this tea to test it out. Have had my eye on it for a month or so actually!
The dry smell is intensely coconut, quite desert smelling, I want coconut pudding now! The wet smell initially was coconut, but then suddenly seemed to change to more lavender with a hint of woodiness from the rooibos. Interesting! Pretty abrupt change if you ask me.
Now for the taste – I steeped for 5 mins, as I do for mostly all rooibos – and this is quite the cup! It’s smooth, and a nice lavender flavor right at the start, but the creamy coconut comes through fully in the aftertaste. Actually, afterwards pretty much all I taste is coconut! Also at the start, there’s a deep sort of mintiness, I think that might be the lavender and rooibos mixing. Regardless, this is a very unique cuppa, and seems super comforting, exactly what I was looking for today (upset tummy blah).
Overall, a very unique flavor. I think I like it, it’s so different from what I’ve been drinking lately though. I think it needs to grow on me a little bit, just a lot sweeter and richer than what I’m used to :)
