This was a nice surprise!
I bought this because the description sounded interesting. I’m not much of a rum fan, but the smell of this tea was so nice that I figured I could become one. Plus, most of the times, flavoured teas don’t taste like what they’re supposed to anyway, so I really didn’t see the danger in it.
Well, apparently a) it does taste like buttered rum and b)I love it!
It has a very strong, but not overpowering coconut smell, and buttery notes that give the tea a nice creamy texture. In addition, it has a slight rummy taste to it as advertised, but of course, without the alcohol.
The tea is really pretty to look at as well, with the variations of colours and ingredients.
It is divine mixed with milk and sugar, and lovely mixed with other teas as well. I like it with some Assam or a nice Earl Grey to create a nice coconuty mix of goodness, but it is the best on its own.
I just had my last mug full yesterday, and will be needing to restock cause this is a tea that I do crave from time to time. It works nicely as a dessert tea as well.
