It’s already feeling like summer here. Where did winter go? Did it really happen this year? Who knows…

This is an appropriately summery green tea blend with flower petals and dried fruit mixed in. The aroma is sweet pineapple and a whiff of other tropical fruit. The tea base didn’t really come through after steeping. It’s definitely fruit and sweet, but in a candy-like, slightly artificial way. It might be good as an iced beverage or tea soda, but as a hot (now warm) brew it’s a bit too sweet for me. It reminds me of one of DAVIDs other blends that is just pieces of fruit…I can’t quite remember the name right now. Thanks beelicious for the sample, there are (really) just a few left to try now :)

LOL – it’s like the neverending bag of tea :)

I was proud to discover the untrieds all fit into one small ziploc bag today :D

This tea has a decided sour note to it. I don’t know what the sourness it but it is prevalent.

I brewed this tea once in an 18 oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and 160 degree water for 3 min.

Flavors: Sour

You are not alone. I couldn’t get over the bitterness of this tea. :P

It smelled good too, that is the sad part. I am trying to drink more greens because of the caffeine element but I find them hit or miss.

Flavored green teas can be really problematic if they are not done well. ;-/

I had bought this to make iced tea and it was a mistake. I should have been more careful reading the label because the three different types of flower petals should have been a tip-off. This tea is SO floral. I’m working my way through the little tin I got on sale, but it’s not great. It seems to work a bit better as hot tea; something about the chilling really seems to bring out the floral notes.

If nothing else, as I brewed this tea up yesterday, I realized I know all of the words to “Kokomo” by The Beach Boys (or the Muppets, depending on your childhood). Hot, I did not care for this at all. But then I coldbrewed it overnight and the coldbrew is lovely and fruity and delicious. It’s juicy and definitely quenching my thirst. Delicious.

I too could probably sing most, if not all, of that song.

I know it better from the Muppets :)

It’s bitter no matter what I do to it so it’s a nope. And I’m already sick of the smell.

ETA: a 30 second steep resulted in a drinkable but heavily flowery brew. Eh.

I don’t know why this tea has such a bad rating, ‘cause I love it. It’s fresh, delicious, it tastes like it smells – what more can you ask? Favourite part is the almost champagne-like aftertaste.

I actually love this tea. I opened my tea calendar today and thought it would be slightly gross, but once I got it in my thermos, I was crying tears of joy. Would recommend!

This tea smells like a tropical paradise. Warm, fresh, fruity, wonderful.

Unfortunately, it tastes rather like perfume.

I’m wondering if it has to do with the fact that it’s green tea, and yet a temperature of 92 degrees Celsius for over five minutes is recommended. The information.. doesn’t seem to make sense together. I will have to try it again later with a more apt green tea steep.

However, based on what is suggested…. it tastes like perfume and that’s about all I can say. Good perfume, kind of fruity… but perfume nonetheless.

Kokomo Green is the 12th tea in the 2013 DavidsTea advent calendar, and one that I was really hoping I’d like. I enjoy fruity greens and have had some similar tropical blends from other tea shops, but Kokomo Green was unappealing from the moment I opened the tin.

It has a strong papaya/pineapple scent and flavor that overwhelms any hint of tea in the blend and it’s just not a taste that works for me. The directions state that it should be brewed at 200 degrees for five to seven minutes (???), which ends up with a tea that’s so bitter it’s almost undrinkable. I also tried with a lower temperature and a shorter infusion and while it was less bitter, I still didn’t enjoy the flavors. I think this would have been better with less pineapple and without the cornflower, and it’s definitely not a tea I’ll revisit. Yuck.
