36 Tasting Notes
I wasn’t sure of buying it because it kinda smells like mouthwash, but I got it anyway because I was curious. The creme de menthe flavour is definitely there, and I think that in order to enjoy the tea you have to really like that flavour. But because it has that huge hit of caffeine and refreshing mint it is a really great morning tea.
I actually bought this tea on a whim for a Jessie. She let me try some and I had to go buy a tin. So. Good. A fantastic evening tea because the lavender is so relaxing. And the coconut is a perfect combination. I’d never think to combine coconut and lavender, because they seem like such different flavours but it works so well and produces a unexpected subtle but sweet flavour.
I almost wish my friend hadn’t introduced me to this tea because:
a) I’m addicted
b) IT’S ONLY A CHRISTMAS TEA!!!!!!!!!!!
Totally drank my 50g bag of it in a week (or maybe less, I can’t remember…) and when I went back to the store to buy a tin to stock up for the year they were all sold out, with no chance of new stock coming in because the tea was THAT good that all the stores had high demand. I emailed customer service, tweeted them, called the stores, etc, nothing. Believe me this Christmas I may or may not be the person rumours will be going around about that I bought the entire container from the store….!
Davids needs to find out how to rebrand this as a year-round tea. I neeeeeeeed more!
Oh Happy Day!!! DAVIDsTEA listens when you cry! They have rebranded it as a not-just-for-Christmas tea so now I can have my fix every day. Hooray for no more painful withdrawals and bipolarness because my cravings were left to their own devices until next Christmas. Just kidding. I picked up a fresh tin of it yesterday. Ohh, the chocolate shavings are huge. The smell is intoxicating. I think I’m gonna go make a latte…
