This sounded so nice, I had to look past the almond and get a sample. Such a pretty tea, I can’t believe they don’t offer a 4 oz tin on the site. Thinking of this tea in a sachet makes me sad because it needs to be seen!
I really want to still be sleeping but I’ve been up since about 7:30, since the woman who lives above my boyfriend does not know how to move around silently, or at least close to silently, which usually doesn’t involve hearing vibrations in the ceiling, things hitting the ground, etc. Oh I should also mention I have no idea where my boyfriend is. So that’s cool.
I wish this tea would cool off already. It smells so good: creamy coconut, floral vanilla. But I don’t want to burn my tongue just yet. I feel like too much time has been wasted not having this tea, I mean its name makes me feel really slow on the uptake.
I have this coconut vanilla scented thing in my car, and this is how I imagine it would taste if it smelled less like suntan lotion. (I actually had someone ask me if I just got back from the beach, hahaha. I do still have my parking receipt from the one time my car was near a beach?)
First I’m glad it’s not all bitter/oversteeped because I didn’t realize this was a white tea until the water was boiling. The coconut is really creamy, so it almost gives the impression of white chocolate with the vanilla flavor. I wish it was a bit floral given the pretty petals in the dry leaf, but that’s really not contributing anything here.
This is delicious though, everything has a nice balance of flavor. I can taste the white tea in here and it blends in well with what feels like the vanilla. I thought it was going to be much sweeter than it is, so that’s nice too. It’s more rich than expected, especially for a white tea.
Would I get more than the sample? For now, no. But if I was ordering something else from H&S maybe another sample size would just pop into my cart. It’s good but not something I would want to drink regularly.
Of course the almond is in full effect now so meh.
