It’s been two days since I had a drop of tea. I’m still painfully sick. So much so I called in sick yesterday, and today I’ve spent all day in bed. Instead of sipping down the beverage that I love I’ve been drinking Neo Citron. Lots and lots of Neo Citron. So, all of these tasting notes are backlogged: I wanted to work on them yesterday but honestly I was just too tired.
This one comes from TeaNTees and I’m assuming it’s from the old 52Teas company given what the packaging looks like. I’ve yet to order from the new 52Teas so I don’t know what the packaging looks like but I imagine it’s different from how Frank packaged things. That means this tea is fairly(ish) old, and since it has coconut in it that does raise a bit of a red flag – I’m wondering if that coconut has turned? However the dry smell seemed safe so I went ahead and cold brewed this.
I think I managed to drink this right on the cusp of it turning as there was a slightly soapy note that crept into some sips but mostly this was a very smooth, creamy, and sweet. The black tea flavour overall was quite light, with emphasis on the added vanilla, cream, and coconut flavours. I think this tea very well conveyed what it was attempting to!
Thank you TeaNTees for passing it along!
