( ETA I probably shouldn’t have drank this at 11pm. )
This was the third 1oz tea I ordered from DTT a few weeks ago. I figured I’d better open it up and try it before sending some to Courtney, because what if it was nasty?!
I was actually pretty pleased, it’s a half decent tea, it’s not overly sweetened, which I very much appreciate.
I am getting some astringency which seems to undermine the whole point of a creamy coconut tea, but maybe I oversteeped it. I haven’t been super OCD about watching my steeping times. Even though I have a tea timer app on my phone….but my phone is hooked up to a speaker in the kitchen via Bluetooth so if I’d been listening to music and the phone is still connected, then I’d have to listen to the timer tick down for 4 minutes. I know you didn’t need to know that, just sayin’.
So, I think I’d drink this again but I will pay closer attention to the steeping time.
It definitely doesn’t come close to my favorite coconut teas – Davidstea’s Coconut Oolong and Persimmon Tree’s Coconut Creme!
When it’s gone I won’t restock, but it’s not awful or anything! Huzzah!
I wonder if Courtney will enjoy it….
