The first thing I noticed about this tea was that it was it was CTC. I have not seen flavored blacks that were CTC before. Not that I mind, but it was odd for me, as I’m used to seeing full leaf. The smell of the dry leaf was pleasantly coconut.
Now the taste. I have this feeling that 52teas coconut cream pie, being so amazingly delicious as it is, has spoiled me for other coconut teas. I can’t help but compare, and they all fall short.
This tea is nice. The coconut is prominent, the vanilla a nice companion. All in all quite a pleasant tea, just not so memorable as to be purchased again.
