Hmm, not sure I’m very keen on this one. I’m drinking an iced cup and a hot cup side by side. Both have a scummy surface, likely from the coconut.

The iced cup tastes primarily of banana, with frozen stale chocolate, almonds, and coconut flakes. That’s ok, but I’m not into the finishing flavour it leaves in my mouth- fruity and hinting at bitter, like orange flavoured coconut water, mixed with cocoa. Aftertaste reminds me of an Orange Julius.

I like the baked banana dessert that I get from from the hot cup. Some things melt together better here, like the cocoa. The orange coconut water isn’t as consistent. The aftertaste reminds me of an Orange Julius though. I’m glad I only picked up a small sample though; I think there may be too many things going on here (chocolate orange, chocolate almond banana, coconut water, orange banana smoothie).

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

White teas, roasted/fired green teas, and the not so roasted green oolong varieties are my favourites. I enjoy the odd shu puerh too.

Currently looking for the most buttery and sweet green oolong I can find.

Ingredients/flavours I enjoy (in moderation): anise, butter, caramel, cedar, cream, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, lemon, lilac, lime, maple, marshmallow leaves, melon, mint, orchid, pine, rice, rose, vanilla.

Ingredients/flavours I tend to dislike: apple, cocoa nibs, licorice, marine, peach, stevia

Subjective Rating System 2.0:

91-100: My absolute favourite tea. Will impulsively buy and hoard like a dragon.

86-90: A favourite tea. May have quality flaws that I choose to ignore.

76-85: A lovely tea, maybe of high quality or masterful blending, but not one I’m likely to order again.

70-75: Enjoyable, but I may have few minor problems with quality, consistency, ingredient chemistry and/or personal preferences.

50-69: Quality, consistency, blending, or personal preference problems are apparent, but I wouldn’t pass up a cup.

11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea. I don’t give a lot of these ratings out, since I tend to grab teas I know will appeal to me.

1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This is last year’s low-grade bancha mixed with rancid coconut, stale cocoa nibs, over-enthusiastic hibiscus, and stevia sweetener. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t exist.
