Tasting note time! I haven’t posted anything here on Steepster in a little while because I just finished a six day streak at work, and I haven’t had any energy (or time, really) to write anything before or after work. Today’s my day off though so lets see what I can write today!
This sample comes from MissB – I saw the coconut shreds in it and automatically assumed it’d make a nice cold brew, so that’s how I prepared my sample. After it was strained this smelled distinctly chocolatey and nutty; no actual coconut notes which is what made me go for a cold brew in the first place.
The taste is reminiscent of DAVIDsTEA’s Choconut Oolong to me – they both share a very similar sweet chocolate flavour with a syrupy sweetness at the end of the sip. In the latter’s case it was caused by licorice root – for this one, while it does remind me a little of licorice root, it’s more so because of the marzipan. And that’s another key difference; Choconut was hazelnut while this is much more distinctly almond. It’s supposed to have pistachio too – but I’m not getting any of those notes.
And, I actually didn’t taste the coconut at all throughout…
It’s good; but I just put Choconut Oolong to rest after finishing off like 200g of it so I think I’m trying this one a little too soon – all I can think of as I sip on it is Choconut Oolong and I made myself so sick of that one just because of the sheer volume of it that I went through.
