drank Coconut Creme by Teaopia
16 tasting notes

OK I’m redoing by previous review of this tea because it really didn’t do the drink justice. This is the smoothest green tea I’ve ever had. I’ve only tried it hot, but that’s mainly because it has so much versatility that way. It works as a substitute for hot chocolate while cuddled in front of a fire, relaxing with a good book, and enjoying a calm moment on a spring day.

I’ve done the whole proper tea etiquette thing where I take the leaves out after a few minutes, and resteep it so I can get about three cups out of it and still get decent taste.
My favourite feature of this tea however is that I can take the lazy way out (and my personal favourite) and just throw a teaspoon of the leaves into my Teaopia 16oz travel tea thermos (the type where there’s an insertable strainer between the drinking spout and the brew) and let the leave just sit in the tea as I drink. A lot of teas will go super bitter this way, but not this one. And I can still refill my travel mug for a second steeping.

Despite my love of this tea I should mention that it’s not really coconut flavoured, it tastes like almonds. Which makes sense when you consider that it’s flavoured with almonds, I don’t mind but anyone really craving coconut might.

This tea has a permanent spot on my “never let myself run of this” list.

Bio

OK I’m just going to do a short bio now so I can follow other people’s tea blogs without seeming too creepy, I promise to do a better (and more interesting) one soon. So probably in a couple of years.
I recently finished my college degree and and have my fingers crossed to get accepted into my grad school of choice. Once my education is all finished I want to be a librarian, mostly so I can drink tea while surrounded by books all day (and get paid for it!!) while encouraging all librarian stereotypes with my knit cardigans, pulled back hair, and glasses.
I’ve been drinking herbal tea with my mother (who I also got onto this site – HI MOMMY!!) for as long as I can remember. I started buying Orange Pekoe grounds (let’s face it there’s nothing leaf like about them) for myself in high school for the caffeine boost, and have been buying loose leaf teas ever since.
When I have to explain my love of tea to others these are generally the reasons I give:
1.) It’s like a hug in a cup, there’s something incredibly soothing about holding a warm mug and smelling your favourite scent.
2.) Although I didn’t start drinking tea for the health benefits, I will definitely enjoy them. Lower LDL levels? Protection against heart disease? Healthier skin? Yes please, sign me up.
3.) I’m a celiac and was diagnosed when I was 13, which was late enough in life that I know exactly what I’m missing out on. I don’t really care that cake tea, or s’mores tea has less calories than the actual product, but I do LOVE that I can sit and smell things I’ve missed while tasting something that’s similar (and often better than their gluten free replicas).
