Hm. I think I will need more than one try of this to get a full, fair review. First impression upon smelling the dry tea is “Wow- this is really coconutty!” Next impression as I scoop tea out of the bag is “Hm. Is there any tea in here or just coconut?”
So I shook the bag up, and even poured it all out to see if maybe it just settled oddly during shipping. No, while there is indeed tea in there, it’s about a 50/50 mix with coconut flakes. Guess that should make for a really coconutty tasting brew!
Well, steeped it is a cloudy, milky white, which isn’t appealing to me. It isn’t bad. I can taste vanilla & coconut without a doubt but black tea? Not really. It is sweetish, like I would expect coconut to be. Definitely in the dessert tea category.
I want to revisit this with maybe a bit of cream added. I’m still not sure I’m going to call it a tea. Maybe if I throw some plain old black tea in with this blend it will be more tea-like :) I don’t regret trying this but I don’t think I will get it again.
