Good morning. What am I doing to myself? Drinking a cup of tea without caffeine right after waking up? I’ll tell you why. Because this is delicious.

The Seattle Tea Snob

Good morning? My dear perhaps you may be so good as to allow me to direct your attention to a time keeping apparatus.

Ashley Bain

mornings for her! she works nights at a hospital.

Erin Hurley

It’s the truth!

TeaNerdette

I think of it more as…Cheesecake in the morning instead of ‘no-caffine’ in the morning.

Oversteeped this has more honeybush than anything in it, plus the creamy coconut from prior steeps that I remember. Still zero sign of the cheesecake. Boo. Future reference: steep at a lower temp for a max of 5 minutes.

YUM.YUM.YUM.YUM.

I don’t know why I hesitated on ordering this one. This is so delicous, creamy and coconuty. I haven’t tasted the cheesecake much, accept in the aftertaste, and not sure I will get the chance to sip this cup as it cools as I am inhaling it. I love that I can’t taste the honeybush flavor much in this brew. Probably because I only steeped it for 3 minutes because the aroma was intoxicating. I really like it at this steeping time.

Thanks so much Lisbet for sending me a few teaspoons of this to try!

I’m so impatient for my order to arrive after reading everyone’s reviews of this tea. *glares at Canada Post *

Uniquity

Ah, Canada Post. The enemy of tea lovers everywhere! Well, at least in Canada : )

Kristen

I hesitated and missed this one….I am hoping Frank adds this to the permanent collection after reading all the fabulous reviews!

Meghann M

He made two more lbs! Placed my order as I don’t want to miss this one.

I was in the mood for a good caffeine free dessert tea, and I am particularly fond of this one.

What I Love: The taste. Oh my goodness this is good. I definitely am going to buy a full sized version of this.
What I Don’t Love: The little floaty’s that escaped from my infuser basket and are now all over my tea :( oh well, I’ll just have to live!

All my notes from last time still stand!

You make me crack up!

Ian

I’m glad :D

Jillian

Sounds like you need a strainer with a finer mesh.

Drunk From Tea

OMG this tea sounds AMAZING! The only thing I love more than coconut is cheesecake!

Oh man, this is good. If you like coconut, I hope you ordered it. I don’t know how it tastes like cheesecake too but it does. The level of coconut is perfect in this tea and then it has something in the background which mellows it a bit (the cheesecake flavoring). Man, I’m really digging it.

Update – both my cats keep trying to drink this tea!

Mine just arrived today too… but I had already brewed a cup of the 100 Monkeys so this will just have to wait until later – it will probably be my dessert after lunch!

Kristin

It was a tough call. I also got my Valenteas sampler too. I had to choose between this and the Strawberry Pie Honeybush. I’ll be trying that one later this evening.

mpierce87

Man, I’m still waiting on this one to arrive. Hopefully tomorrow!

I just re-ordered this, after not having it for about a year. Something has happened to this blend. It is not as I remember it. I remember an intoxicating coconut smell (I even wrote about it in my previous note) – now I am getting only honeybush. I remember a creamy cheesecake tartness and rich coconut creaminess – but now I’m getting only honeybush. Basically it’s plain honeybush with a faint hint of coconut.

I’m sad because I ADORED this blend and was looking forward to having it again. It’s nothing like it used to be.

Taking the rating down, but I will still give it a decent score for it’s past greatness

No doubt this is amazing. I would request this be added to the permanent list. Only reason it didn’t get a 100 is because I didn’t get any cheesecake flavor at all. Still it is wonderful and want a constant supply. Until then I will drink this sparingly.

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec
Kristen

I hope this one is added to the permanent! I missed out on ordering it but seen all the good reviews and hope it is soon available again!

Wow I did not expect to love this tea!!!! Of course I had high hopes for it but I was a little worried that the coconut would set off that itchy reaction I usually get. Well, no scratchiness is to be found. Sweet!!
Unfortunately, the coconut really sweetens up the tea. I think it’s overpowering the cheesecake factor because when I first dunked the bag, after about a minute I stole a little taste and I could pick out cheesecake right away. I was impressed!! but now? Nope, no cake to be found :(
This makes me sad because I was so looking forward to that. Although I do get a sort of sweet cheese aftertaste, long after I’ve swallowed.
I’m letting the cup cool a bit now in hopes that a temperature change might reveal something extra.
So big thanks to Jenn for sharing this with me!!! I owe you one.or fifty! :)

ok now that it’s cooled, I can kinda sorta (but not really if you know what I mean) see it going in the cheesecake direction. Tsk. Next time I’ll cut the steep time. I think I have enough left for another!

Tina S.

I’m waiting for this one in the mail right now, and can’t wait to try it now!

Indigobloom

Oooh, I’ll look for your review!!

Erin

Cheesecake tea sounds amazing! I hope it comes out more with a shorter steep.

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

I’ve been drinking this one a lot recently. Just makes me feel cozy. :)

Indigobloom

I hope so to Erin!!
Rachel, it IS a cozy drink isn’t it??? :)

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Yes it is Indigoloom and as a matter of fact I am having some now. :)

This is REALLY GOOD! Coconut and I am getting a bit of a tangy bite to it, I think the cheesecake part. I hope Frank is considering adding this to the permanent collection! Yummy! You know a tea is good when you finish it in no time and want/crave another cup! That is definitely occurring with this one!!!

Uniquity

I read a post on the discussion board that suggested this is a permanent addition! : )

I so very much wish I liked coconut, as this has amazing reviews – Enjoy!
