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 :)

Bio

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
