This blend smells amazing before it’s brewed. So much so that I’d consider buying it just to take a whiff of now and then. It has a delightful coconut-floral-grassy aroma. In that order. It yields a dark golden infusion that smells strongly of coconut but tastes like a pure jasmine tea. The taste of the tea was both vegetal and grassy

If you steer clear of jasmine teas because the floral taste is too strong, you might like this one. It’s the most subdued floral jasmine tea I’ve tried. It was a nice change to taste more of the green tea than with typical jasmine teas.

Although a pleasant cup, I would love to taste more coconut flavor. That said, I’ll take a great jasmine tea that smells of coconut over one that does not.

Bio

My favorite types of tea are green, white, and green oolongs. I adore mildly floral teas like jasmine and rose. Fruit blends are also swell, especially if they feature berries, pineapple, and/or coconut.

Although I don’t like unflavored black teas, I do enjoy a few flavored black teas – lychee, apple rose, and Earl Grey. I also enjoy an occasional cup of basic pu-erh tea.

My rating system works like a school’s grading scale:

90-100 = A (Out of this world!)
80-89 = B (I’ll buy it again.)
70-79 = C (Merely average.)
60-69 = D (Not my “cup of tea”.)
0-59 = FAIL (I’ll try anything once.)
