drank Cocomint Cream by DAVIDsTEA
880 tasting notes

I have been wanting to try this tea for AGES, aka since it came out. Finally, I picked up a bit today without the bf being there to say noo it’s too coconut, it smells weird, you don’t need another herbal tea..mwahaha.

The dry smell is minty and creamy, but there is also apple in it, which surprised me the first time I smelled it because I hadn’t looked at the ingredients thoroughly. Steeped, I get mainly mint, with a hint of creaminess.

Now for the taste, pow!! If mint shortbread exists, this tastes like it! Haha, it has the buttery coconut flavor melded quite nicely with the peppermint. I love mint and coconut, so win-win. The apple is not really there to me, maybe it’s adding a small amount of a punch to the middle of the taste? Meh, this is primarily a yummy coconutty cookie of some sort. With mint. Huzzah!

Overall, this is another one of those very sweet teas that I will drink in moderation. However, it is quite tasty, and it will hit the spot when I am craving something sweet before bed. In fact, it will probably battle with Jessie’s tea to be my coconut tea of choice now! Tea battle commence!(another night though, I have my sweet fill for now)

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 :)
