This may now be my favorite tea ~ It’s really, really good!

Hooray! After over a month and a half, I finally received my pouch of Coconut Cheesecake.
This is delicious. As many others have noted, it’s rich and creamy and coconut-y. I am not tasting the cheesecake (maybe if I really strained?), but it’s delicious. It tastes quite like the Coconut Cream Pie, which cannot be a bad thing.
This will be short: My roommates love it! To the point of bragging about it to random people coming in and out of the house. I liked it, not love. It definitely tasted like coconut but I had a hard time detecting the cheesecake part. It reminded me more of a Pillsbury graham pie crust + coconut.
Overall it was nice. Not too much’a fan of Rooibos or Honeybush, and I s’pose that’s because I’ve just become so spoiled by other teas.
Also, I was disappointed that the contents of the satchel was spilled out in the shipping package with an apology note from postal service. I guess they must of wanted a cup for themselves? Oooorrr they thought it was some form of “incense?”
It’s kind of hard to think of thick, dense cheesecake when drinking tea. But if you were to liquefy it I suppose this would be close. It’s not quite iced but it’s not really warm now but I do think it’s better a bit colder.
The main dry smell is nothing special. Neither is it when it’s steeped but the taste comes through and makes you not really care that there’s no smell. The coconut and the sweetness of the rooibos mix so well in this tea. I usually find that rooibos over powers everything but this is such a good mix!
