Initial impressions- Opening the tin the scent of coconut is immediately evident. I also see yellow-white chamomile flowers and pieces of coconut among the small black tea leaves and broader white tea leaves. Love love the smell of this tea.
How I brewed it- 1.5 teaspoons in 94 degree water for five minutes. Quarter teaspoon of agave nectar mixed in.
First sips- For something with black tea it is very mellow and light. I attribute this to the white tea in there. I get a mixture of coconut and chocolate sensations on the initial sip, with an aftertaste of mellow coconut. This is a very nice, mellow tea and I would definitely buy it again.
Addendum- made a second cup later on a whim with steamed milk and it is fantastic as a tea latte.
