Fantasy Island was not as big of a Fantasy for me as I thought it would be, the tea was originally part of Davids spring collection I believe it was; however it was brought on as a full time tea I am assuming due to popularity. This is another good one for coconut lovers.
Dry this tea will look a lot like Stormy Night; however instead of chunks of chocolate it has chunks of raspberry. Coconut flakes are just as prevalent as in stormy night. It has a nice soft coconut and berry smell to it that remains throughout steeping. Brewing this tea will reward you with a dark aromatic brew again quite similar to Stormy Night expect minus the cinnamon this time around.
The final brew is moderately delicious I found it required sweetening to be up to my standards; however as I have mentioned before I have a slightly overly active sweet tooth. I generally do not add milk to my tea’s; however I found this one more enjoyable with a small splash of 2%.
Push comes to shove this is a good tea, I am not sure where it sits in my book as I do drink it daily but it isn’t one I have grown to love or hate so its still up in the air if I will replace this tin when it runs out. But certainly worth grabbing a sample pack to try out and see if it is worth it for you.
TIP: Mix equal parts of Stormy Night and Fantasy Island and steep for 4 minutes at 96*C and enjoy yourself a cup of my own creation, I call it “A Stormy Night on Fantasy Island” the girls at the local Davids got a kick out of that. It tastes great mostly because the teas are so similar that it works out great.
