This tea caught my attention from the first second I saw it advertised on David’sTeas’ website. Coconut? Lemongrass? Ginger? And white tea? All in the same cup? Yum! Sounds too good to he true.
Tart notes of lemon accentuated with a zap of ginger were the first scents I noticed with the dry leaves. Once steeped for 5 minutes or so, I can begin to smell the warm, creamy coconut seeping through the brighter fruits.
Sip wise, the first flavor to hit my tongue is the coconut, not artificial tasting at all, very silky and rich. Totally yummy! The ginger and lemongrass punctuate with a tart, spicy, clean finish. The back of my throat feels all tingle-y, and even after having swallowed I can still taste the coconut. (In a good way! Not in the bad I-can’t-get-this-taste-out-of-my-mouth-feel)
Fabulous blend! Now all I need is a trashy novel to read and my shades, and I’ll be ready for summer!
