From DAVIDsTEA

Rich, dark, sensual

It’s spring again, time to fall in love. So start steeping this tea. Let the black leaves unfurl, the coconut swirl and the heady scent of raspberry sweep you away. You’ll find yourself on a magical island where the sun always shines except, of course, when the moonlight is reflected on the soft waves and some fabulous admirer is whispering in your ear. Then try it iced. It’s even better.

Ingredients: Fair Trade Certified Black tea, coconut, raspberries, artificial and natural flavouring*.

This is one of those teas that I probably wouldn’t want any day, anytime… but it tastes like comfort… The coconut definitely seems to come through a lot stronger than raspberry, which is slightly disappointing but I still enjoyed it, especially after sweetening it a little bit. I normally don’t sweeten my teas but my fellow tea enthusiast cousin convinced me and it somehow makes it seem warmer :D I wouldn’t stock up but it would be nice to have 50 grams or so on hand, for times when a little warming coconut would be in order.

Flavors: Coconut, Raspberry

This isn’t a tea I would drink everyday, it has lots of coconut flavor but I never tasted any of the raspberry. I tried it sweetened and unsweetened, with sugar it boosted the flavor and made it a bit more pleasant. I think this is a mood tea, not something you would constantly go for but when you are wishing you are on a beautiful island and can’t be :)

During most of the winter I like hot, smooth teas like caramel and vanilla, but this is sort of a summer equivalent of a smooth, comfort tea (as compared to a more tangy or sharp fruit tea). I can’t really distinguish the individual flavors, but it’s a pleasant iced tea that’s a nice change of pace, but I still tend to prefer fruit flavored black teas in the summer.

I cold brewed this a week or two ago and just found the empty envelope in my cupboard (sipdown!), but I clearly forgot to log it.

The OCD in me can’t let that slide, so here I am.

I really enjoyed this tea cold and suspect I’d still like it hot. I see DT still stocks it, so I will likely pick up a small amount, I liked the creamy coconut with the raspberry. Yum!

There, I feel better now. All is right in my world :)

Amariel

I almost made this this morning, but I opted to have the last of my Nutmeg Cream.

And on the wish list it goes :-)

Courtney

Finally! I can “like” this.

Memily

MY FAVOURITE DREAM TEA!

whatshesaid

I’m definitely going to pick up some more :)

Courtney

Recommend Dolce Vita too :) Also raspberries and coconut with a black base.

whatshesaid

LOL Courtney…. Go look a few reviews down on my page ;)

TeaFairy – yup, hahaha

Courtney

Haha whoops! So I may be behind on reading notes. Also, ahhh I feel terrible about your experience. It’s true the coconut is barely there, but the rest, le sigh.

whatshesaid

Oh, well it has nothing to do with you!! I’m going to keep trying! I have tons, lol

Yummy yummy. Toasted coconut with a hint of raspberry. Helping me through some Korra feels tonight. I decided to watch the whole first season today on my day off, having never watched it before. I loved the Avatar: The Last Airbender series, and I have to say I was not disappointed with Legend of Korra. I may or may not have cried into my mug of tea at some point or another. The score for the series really got to me and I really felt this aching nostalgia for the old series. I love when a show/book/movie can get you invested like that. But still, oh my aching heart. Some of those moments had me reaching for the kleenex.

Anywho, on a happier note I GOT MY CAR!!! WOOT! Brought it home on Friday. It’s a red Fiat that we’ve named Francesca. Why? She’s got European class, but she’s also a bit eccentric so we nick-named her Frankie ;P

Cavocorax

Oh, that’s exciting!!! Sounds like an adorable Fiat.

Hello.Kiki

I’m ridiculously excited. Not only is it my first car, but I also feel like I’ve passed a great milestone. It’s the first big purchase for my husband and I since we got married in February!

Cheri

That is a nice milestone! I love tiny cars, and the Fiat 500 fits that bill perfectly.

The coconut in this tea overpowers the raspberries, making the raspberries more of a background flavour. This is a nice mild sweet tea, perfect for an afternoon pick me up. I do wish the raspberries stood out more but as a coconut tea this is perfect.

I’ve been sitting here over the past twenty minutes mindlessly sipping on this tea not realizing that a) this is actually Fantasy Island and b) I’ve yet to log it.

So this is the infamous Fantasy Island? More like Catastrophe Island. Ok, maybe a little harsh, but I hardly taste any coconut or raspberry. There’s a vague creaminess but that’s it.

Now I feel bad harping on Bayswater’s Merlin’s Magic, which is coconut and raspberry, which I thought was a little too mild. But in comparison, Bayswater’s blows this one out of the water.

I can smell a faint artificial raspberry note in the background but don’t get any in the flavour. The base is weird. I don’t know. I don’t get it. If it makes any difference, I’m drinking it hot with a bit of half and half. I didn’t bother taking a sip before adding the cream. I’ll make sure to do that next time. Just that the steeped tea on its own smelled rather boring and astringent.

__Morgana__

Did you find it really, really sweet? I did, though I used no additives, and I wasn’t expecting that.

Amariel

See, I LOVE this one, and I totally get the coconut. The raspberry is a lighter note for sure. I’m gonna get some strawberry coconut pu erh from bulk barn and see how it compares to this.

Fjellrev

Come to think of it, Morgana, it was really sweet. Despite having it with cream, it kind of tasted like what teas tend to taste like when I add sweetened soy/coconut/almond milk to them. Just vaguely sweet. That was probably part of the problem!

Anna

Now I want to blend a Catastrophe Island tea. Or Dead Island – there are way too few gaming fandom teas (if any) out there.
