Ah, the advent calendar countdown begins!
I’ve had this one once before (thanks for the sample, Kittenna!) I found it okay, but coconut and I don’t see eye to eye.
This one is the first tea of the advent calendar now! Quick note about the advent calendar: they give you the PERFECT amount of leaf for two generously leafed Perfect Mug-fuls. You could probably get 3 mugs out of it if you were more conservative with the leaf. I thought that was nice because you get enough tea to share with someone or try it 2-3 times yourself but not so much tea that it’s kicking around in your cupboard forever.
Okay, so the tea: It’s okay. Nice and sweet, which I like. Quite coconutty, which I don’t like. The black tea base is prominent, which is nice, and the colour is a pretty caramelly shade.
Mr. Sheep had a glass of this as well and enjoyed it. Both of us agreed that it’s a decent tea, but not one we would ever purchase or crave. I can see how this would be a tea that most people would enjoy, however I can’t see how it’s one of their most popular teas because it’s just not fantastic like some of their other ones are.
Both of us agreed that this would probably be nice with milk in it, however we were out of milk.

Bio

Recently graduated sociology student trying to decide what to do with her life.
I don’t drink tea every day, but I do love tea and trying out different flavours. My favorite is black tea, followed by white and mate teas. I enjoy rooibos and oolongs, but haven’t tried enough of them yet to determine how much I like them compared to other types. I don’t like straight green tea, but if it has a good flavour added to it I can enjoy it quite a lot.
Mostly I drink DavidsTea since its Canadian and they tend to have stronger teas and more interesting flavors than other places I’ve tried. I don’t care for what I’ve tried from Teavana for the most part; their teas seem weak and overpriced in general as far as I can tell. The exception is My Morning Mate, which is incredible.
My city has not a single specialty tea shop, so DavidsTea online ordering is my friend. I highly recommend their Perfect Mug. It really is perfect. Nice thin lip, large hand, larger than average mug without being too big, and I have it in clear so I can see the beautiful colours of my teas as they steep. The strainer that comes with it is my favorite because it doesn’t let any tea through, and its metal and dishwasher safe. Love it.
