This tea smells buttery, sweet and a tiny bit fruity. There is also something in the background that reminds me of yogurt. I’m pleased to say that the coconut is not too overwhelming as far as the scent is concerned. Yes, I do like coconut, but it has to be “just so” in a tea or else I won’t enjoy it. Coconut has the potential to become overpowering, sour and too sweet. If scent is any indication, I think I will enjoy this cup!
Sipping… it takes a little while for the flavor to develop on the tongue. The first part of the sip leads you to believe you’re drinking plain hot water or a very weak white tea. As the sip continues, the sweet coconut blossoms and becomes apparent. The finish is sweet and a little bit of that tangy sourness that coconut tends to leave behind.
I did steep this tea for a rather short amount of time, about 2 minutes (White tea and I usually don’t get along well, plus I find it can be oversteeped quite easily!). This blend is soothing and soft — it reminds me a bit of a light linen blanket. Not too much or too little, but has just the right amount of flavor to provide you with comfort. I do like this tea, but don’t think I would buy it again. It doesn’t really call to me the way other teas do, but happy to have had a cup this afternoon!
