Technically I didn’t drink this one: I made a cup of this for Tre upon his request for “tea: any tea”. I selected it because I have lots of this to use up, and I know he really, really loves coconut so that’s become a default ingredient for me to rely on when making tea selection choices for him.

I honestly forgot, though, that he “demands” tablespoons of sugar in his tea and, really, I don’t know how I forgot because fuck that’s a lot of sugar, but I did. I guess because I honestly haven’t made him tea in a long tea: he’s been on a hot chocolate kick. So, no sugar in the cup of this for him. But you know what? He still loved it! He drank the whole cup and said he actually really liked it. So go me! I guess I know how to pick ’em.

Now I want to make this one sooner rather than later though; I could smell it so strongly the whole time he had it and it smelled so very damn ripe and juicy with this lovely coconut edge. Ugh; damn bagged teas making me want to take a break from loose leaf! NEVER.

Although, I have just finished off the last of my Sugar Plum Spice; I suppose I do need another bagged tea to work on for my next bagged tea sip down. This could be that tea…

I have this tea and the idea and smell of it are always better than the actual taste. At least for me

I want to get rid of it…just throwing that out there in case you are interested. No strings (financial or otherwise) attached

No no, that’s ok! I want to get rid of it too; hence why it was served to the roommate ;) Still, it’s a nice occasional treat for those rare times when I want something mango flavoured. That fruit and I are on weird terms :P

Damn, you didn’t fall for it ;)

Hello;

My name is Kelly. I’m a barely twenty tea drinker and reviewer living in Saskatchewan, Canada. I started drinking loose leaf fairly casually nearly two years ago, and at some point between then and now that ‘fun little hobby’ turned into a serious obsession.

You know you’ve got it bad when you get your hobby tattooed to your arm.

Typically I drink flavoured blends more that straight but one of my mini goals this year is to get that ratio to a more 50/50 level. I do a daily cold brew, and have at least (but usually a lot more) two hot cups of tea every day. Naturally I lean towards black or white blends, but I WILL drink everything; the last half year or so I’ve been challenging myself by further exploring Oolong and Pu’Erh which are the tea types I know the least about overall.

My default for preparation is Western Style with zero additives (the exception being matcha which I drink in straight milk with no additives); so unless I mention otherwise you can assume that’s how I’ve prepared my tea!

Favourite flavours/ingredients: Pear, Lychee, Cranberry, Cream, Melon, Pineapple, Malt, Roasty

Least favourite flavours/ingredients:
Lemongrass, ginger/“Chai” in general, raisins, overly vegetal, chamomile, sometimes mango or peach

I also have a severe allergy to mushrooms; as such I do not drink Kombucha teas!

Currently exploring/looking to try: Straight Pu’Erh or Dark/Roasted Oolong, Sweet Potato flavoured blends, and anything with Goji berries

I also write reviews for SororiTea Sisters! Typically what I post there is more edited, focused and expanded reviews of what I’m posting here. Unless I was sent a tea specifically to review for the blog, I will post here first.

If the tea was sent to me specifically to review there then the full review will only be posted there, and my Steepster review will just contain a snippet of the review and a link to the full review on the SS site.
