This tea engulfs you in coconut aroma bliss. The smell of coconut is very potent from opening the bag to steeping. There are chocolate details in there somewhere, but the coconut is most prominent.
My first sip really surprised me. I didn’t expect this tea to be so creamy. The chocolate taste and nutty flavors are there, but I am quite thankful the coconut is still prominent in taste as well, it gives a bit of a sweeter flavor to it’s striking coffee similarity. The rose and licorice are quite faint in the background, which is ok, as they do not need to be big flavors in this already deliciously milky tea.
After getting repeatedly disappointed with coffee extract tea blends from another company, Teavana seem to know how to make coffee alternatives without actually putting one bit of coffee in their teas. This tea has all the right elements for a pitch perfect blend that both coffee and tea drinkers will enjoy.
