YUP I still love this.

I have almost a full tin of it too, I was hoarding it all like “MY PRECIOUSSSSSESSSS” because it had been gone after the season was over, however they brought it back this Spring! Huzzah!

Apparently the addition of the lemongrass to the new blend makes nary a difference, I certainly couldn’t smell it but I will report back someday when I taste it.

For now I have to work on this tin and hoard no more, because as I’ve learned with coconut teas – “if you don’t use it, you lose it” – like it literally becomes inedible undrinkable, bitter, rancid and vomit like.

It would be more than a travesty for me to allow that to happen to this light and creamy tea of my coconutty dreams. So if you need me all summer long, I will be sipping down this bad boy :)

Must try this again! I have a bit left…I remember it tasting very strongly of popcorn for some reason. Must be more careful with my steep this time. How do you personally go about with this one?

I just follow the directions! Around 92 degrees for 3-4 min :)

I’m learning that same issue of age with a different coconut tea. It is a shame it doesn’t keep better.

OMGsrsly

Oh hey, what do you think of slightly more floral oolongs? Because if you are interested you should add your address to the “secret packages” file. :) Or just send it to me if the idea of packages scares you!

I really like it, at least the old one, but I find I have to be in the right mood for it.

Yes, must drink coconut teas, they just don’t last :(
I haven’t figured out yet if that only applies to tea with coconut chunks in it or also coconut flavoring (if it’s natural)

I’m not sure how many floral oolongs I’ve tried! I’ve tried a couple roasty old ones (like Formosa) and just wasn’t getting anything much out of the experience. I would probably prefer a slightly floral one to that!
And I don’t think I can edit that, Sil would have to do it :)
I can send it though!

Amariel – yes, it’s very specifically coconutty and buttery, I also have to be in the mood for it!

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
