This tea is evoking some lovely memories – I just love when that happens. There used to be these amazing cookies called Coconut Cream Cookies by McCormicks – sadly, the brand was bought out by Dare, and they discontinued this amazing cookie, because, they felt their own version was better (they are sadly mistaken. I have never forgiven Dare for this or for what they did to our Girl Guide cookies, but that is a rant for another day)
Well, I never thought I would smell that cookie again. This evening, I did smell it and when I closed my eyes, I really thought I was going to chomp into that crunchy biscuit once more.

I am even more thrilled to report that the tea brews up to smell very nearly the same as it does when dry – another pleasant surprise. The liquor is very light, the colour of a fair, white wine.

First taste – oh, the raptures. Tastes just as it smells, light and dancing on my tongue. Has a sweet coconut finish, and really reminds of me of how my beloved cookie would taste after I nibbled on it. I think I’m in love.

I believe this lovely tea will be happily ensconced in my cupboard for some time. And I guess one small comfort is that, unlike the cookies, this will be one treat I can indulge in without worrying about the calorie content.

Damn, I am sure missing those cookies right now. ;)

Just a girl doing yoga. And other random things.
I drink a lot….of tea.

I’m still figuring out my rating system. The little smiley faces mess me up – I wish you could see the numbers underneath. Bear with me while I figure it all out and hopefully come up with a rating system besides “like” “don’t like” and “sometimes/sorta kinda like” ;)
