From DAVIDsTEA

Spread the wealth
Looking for some Inca gold? Try Cocomama’s tea. She was the Incan goddess of pleasure and health, and would have loved this sensual spring blend of lime, coconut, gotu kola and organic black tea. The tea leaves come from Bolivia, part of her vast empire, where a new initiative is helping some of Latin America’s poorest farmers plant tea instead of coca. Try it; it’s satisfying on so many levels.

Mmmmmm, how I missed you!

I could not get to work fast enough to steep this today, and it was delicious down to the last drop!! God I love teas that have citrus in it.

Cattibrie

I am with you Erin. Citrus is my go to for teas apparently. We even add lemonade sometimes. And I add a splash of lemon juice to many iced teas.

MaddHatter

This one was the first tea I had at DAVIDs and although this one gets kind of a bad rap, I still LOVE it!!

Backlogging – I got a sample of this tea in my tea order. I am really glad they sent this one because I seriously had no interest at all in lime in my tea. But wow. This is good. I am happy I divided this tiny sample into 2 cups because I am going to want more. Sadly, I have to save up my tea purchases to get DavidsTea because of the high shipping costs, so by the time I run out of tea, this seasonal tea will probably be gone.

It took me a while to figure out exactly what this tastes like. Have you ever had that margarita in a bucket? The kind where you add the mix and the tequila in a bucket and put it in the freezer? That’s it. That is what it tastes like. That sweet liquid that you suck out of the frosty ice shavings. Nom!

I wonder how much it would cost to get someone from Canada to ship some in a padded envelope? I’d think it would only be a few bucks for shipping but I am not sure. I unfortunately do not have any decent tea stores near my house to volunteer to get tea from for a Canadian. I could offer up some samples of things from my house in exchange for the effort if anyone is interested.

Vanilla Comoro! I’m dying to try that tea and will be happy to snag some Cocomama for you next time I head to DavidsTea in exchange!

Kristin

That would be great. I have some of that. I have it in the tea bags. I’ll pay you for the tea and the shipping and then send you some Vanilla Comoro for the effort! Thanks. Send me a message when ready to swap!

Kristin

Oh, and 50g is a good amount for me.

Uniquity

Hahaha, Lady Kitty Katt is going to end up buying a pound of vanilla comoro in the next few months, I bet!

Kristin

Yeah, that Vanilla Comoro is like crack!

I’ve already been eying Harney & Sons because they have the Alice in Wonderland tea set I’m dying for…this might just tip the scales into my actually making an order!

aisling of tea

Ack! So darn cute!

Uniquity

Total side note, have you tried DT’s Lime Bang? I reallly like it.

Kristin

No, I haven’t tried that one. I’ll have to see if it’s available next time.

So, the only time I’ve had this hot was an in-store sample. They said it was steeped quite lightly and it was alright but I wasn’t a huge fan. The warm + lime kind of bothers me.

I cold-brewed some today and am quite enjoying it. It’s really light and brewing it hot and then icing would lead to a more flavourful tea, but this is really refreshing and tasty and the right amount of lime for me.

Michelle Butler Hallett

Right from the get-go, I thought this blend sounded like it would be best cold-brewed. (Or used in cooking.) Thanks for the note.

I received this tea as sample with my David’s Tea order. I tried it hot and that may have been a mistake. I really don’t detect much of a coconut flavor which is odd because the tea to coconut ratio looks to be nearly even in the dry tea. Also, the lime tastes a bit bitter to me. The black tea is nice and almost understated, but then I come back to a bitter lime rind aftertaste.

I’m a HUGE David’s Tea fan, but this one s not one of my favorites. Sorry David…

aisling of tea

Yeah, I don’t care for this one either, but I always feel a little guilty about not liking a tea from Davids. They introduced me to tea and I love so many of their teas XD.

MaddHatter

When I first had this tea (as a take away tea) I thought it was over steeped… I found it slightly bitter and almost burnt. The second time I made it myself I only steeped it two minutes and it still was not great, it is not my go to tea for sure, but some what enjoyable.

Jenn

LadyKittyKat, I’ve only recently discovered David’s Teas, but I feel indebted to Mr. David in the same way you do. A company that produces so many taste bud pleasing flavor home runs is bound to produce one or two that don’t suite me. I guess it’s not all about me :)

Jenn

Erin, I love that David’s Tea is so generous with the samples! I wish that I could have brewed it at least one more time to see if I might have over steeped it etc. Alas, I think it was a limited addition spring tea anyway. My sample had fallen behind my Vitamix and I only just recovered it today, and it’s always fun to try something new.

MaddHatter

I think it is a permentant tea, I bought it late May? Or maybe they hadn’t run out yet?

aisling of tea

Erin, nope, it was a spring tea, they just still have a lot in stock. (because it’s gross >.>)

Jenn

Ladykittykat, your comment made me laugh aloud like a crazy person! I needed that this morning :)

aisling of tea

Always glad to help ;)

MaddHatter

Oh, wow… if it’s only intended to be seasonal, then left over stock say’s it all… I hope that is not the same case for “Movie Night”

Jenn

Movie Night is now a permanent part of the David’s Tea collection, so no worries about it being only seasonal. I love Movie Night :)

This blend is very smooth for a black with almost none of the tannins I can usual taste in an Asian black tea. There’s a creamy note that I’m not sure if it’s the coconut or the base itself, but whichever it is it’s quite nice. The lime isn’t overpowering but it adds a nice little citrus zing to the blend. Too bad this one seems to have been discontinued.

Awww man, I get so jealous when I see people posting old DT teas that I didn’t have the chance to try! I wish they’d bring everything back for a bit; I’m sure they’d sell out quickly, as I imagine their customer base is significantly larger now than it was a couple years ago.

Another tea that I’m trying from my Hoppitea package from Fairyfli. Probably the first tea that I’ve tried that really smells like keylime pie. The aroma is marvelous. I am really liking this tea. The lime tartness is great but not overpowering. The black tea is good too. I can’t really taste coconut here but I can tell that it mellows out the lime. This is very tasty! This might be one I have to add the the cupboard when I go on my next tea spree. :)

The dry tea smells alternately limey and coconutty. They’re both excellent smells, but together they’re almost off-putting. Like they’d taste like orange and toothpaste or milk and mustard.
When it steeps, the tea is a fairly “ordinary” black tea colour. I almost never drink black teas without milk, but the lime has me trying this one as naked as the day it was born. There’s a delightful skiff of oil drops on the top of the liquid. Presumably from lime oil? I love oily teas, so that makes me happy.
The lime in the steeped tea almost smells minty. Again, almost off-putting. But I needs me some black tea, so let’s do this!
ZINGY! I LOVE the lime. I may put lime in all of my black teas from now on. Full disclosure: I just ate two pieces of raisin toast, but I can’t taste the coconut at all at first. Just lime and black tea. The SMELL is there for sure, but it’s hiding behind the lime kind of like a fearful pre-schooler hides behind his mom. (Also, I can’t slurp/aerate the tea as much as I’d like to/usually do because my husband is watching television and it sounds ultra-rude.)
Nope. Even after I let it cool off a bit and let it sit in my mouth a LOT, it’s all lime, lime, lime.
This isn’t a complaint per se, because the lime is just so lovely, but I wish I could taste coconut as well. Me likey da lime in da coconut. (See what I did there?)

Well first things first, I ordered several different teas from Davids Tea and I absolutely love the sample tins they send… it is perfect to store for on the go! Anyways I ordered some of the kit teas and the accidentally sent me the wrong one. After writing to them they responded quite promptly and told me to keep the kit and they were going to send me the other kit and some more samples…:) They were so nice talk about service!

Ok on to the tea,
I loved the smell of this tea, you can smell the lime and then a hint of coconut sweetness, can’t really smell the tea but for me that is ok! :)

Before brewing it, I decided that I mainly wanted to try this iced..so I made sure to double the amount and brewed it for 6min.. the most for this tea. Poured it over ice and took it to school with me. The tea smelled like limes and hint of tea, I lost the smell of the coconut after steeping. I had a bit left in the tea maker and sipped it. It was good but kind of strange drinking warm lime?!?! It was also a bit astringent, but I think that next time I will brew for 5 min. Thought for sure this was going to be much better iced.

When I got to school I took a sip and WOW this was so refreshing iced. I highly recommend this tea if you like limes. It is like drinking a bit of tea with a smoothness or hint of sweetness from the coconut (can’t really taste the coconut) and then the pop of lime. It is really good almost like limeaid! Yum Yum Yum

I would like to start by saying that I love coconut and lime and this tea seemed made for me.
I sampled it at the store (David’s tea has a tea of the day) and loved the lime coconut flavor and smell, i bought 25g to try it and see if i like this, warning 25g does not get you a lot of tea it’s very heavy and dense so you get maybe 3 or 4 cups out of this.

upon steeping you really smell the lime!

the lime is what really shines here but you get the black tea as well, the coconut is more in the aftertaste, very smooth and creamy.

Nice pick me up on a day like today, while theres a snow storm outside i can imagine myself on a beach sipping a margarita!

I added some agave nectar after my first few sips, i guess the lime and cocnut had me thinking beach, with a beach comes sand and with sand comes cactus! ok i know i’m reaching for an excuse lol, but it does change the taste makes this even better takes alittle bit of the tartness of the lime away, really nice!

After reading another tasting note that said that this gets better the longer it steeps, I tried it out again in my big glass teapot. This isn’t a very dark black tea, and similarly the taste is very light. The lime is zingy, but not overpowering. I enjoyed the hint of coconut, which was much softer than the buttered rum I had this morning.

There’s nothing bitter about this tea, so it’s nice to slowly sip at without worrying about oversteeping it. Even as it got cold it was still tasty, so I’m sure it would be lovely iced. Definitely a go-to for my long paper writing sessions!
