YAY!! My tea order arrived today. I was seriously bummed because I had checked the mail earlier and there was nothing there. I was assuming it was due to the icy roads that canceled school today. However, a couple of hours later the flag on my mailbox that signals there is something inside was raised. I checked the mail again and my tea was there!!! Many thanks to my lovely mail delivery lady who braved the roads in order to deliver this tea.

Now, on to this tea. I, like many others, thought I had missed this tea completely but Frank decided to blend up some more and I grabbed a pouch. I love that this is a honeybush blend because I was anticipating the flavors to truly shine with that base. This tea is a really great and tasty blend! The many, many shreds of coconut in the mix really lend a nicely smooth flavor with the tangy cheesecake-like taste coming out as the tea cools and hanging around in the background.

I did add some milk to the cup, but I think I would prefer this tea better without that addition. I’ve really been noticing that I like more teas without additions lately and I’ll be sure to try that later on with this tea.

Maybe if Frank has enough requests he’ll whip up another 2 pounds? I swear I read a comment joking about need he make more…Please please please?

Jillian

Maybe he should add this one to the permanent collection at MySweetHoneybush.

Great review, mrawlins2. My review pales in comparison. But I was distracted by the lusciousness of the coconut…

Profile

Bio

Formally known as mrawlins2

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
