Some amazing alchemy is going on here. The creamy, sweet, and nutty traits of the core ingredients blend into and compliment each-other seamlessly.

The slightly astringent assam body also makes this the ideal breakfast tea. Along with some maple syrup, it vastly improved some mediocre pancakes. The mother agrees wholeheartedly.

Coconut-nut blends can get stale and dull quickly, and I’m incredibly pleased how fresh this one tastes. It’s the kind of tea that actually makes me want to wake up early and eat breakfast food (ugh). It was a wonderful way to kick off Mother’s Day!

I got a sample of this and kicked myself for days for not getting more. I’m not sure what I was expecting but this tea is way more impressive than its name.

Agree wholeheartedly. I thought this would be a write-off when I ordered a sample, but your and Kittenna’s notes convinced me I should at least give it a chance. Glad I did :)

I’m glad! I really don’t know where I’d be without the tasting notes on this site. I’d have no IDEA what to drink and I’d just be stumbling blind through the world of tea.

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.

Ingredients/flavours I tend to dislike or stay away from: apple, cocoa nibs, marine, peach, stevia, dairy products

Subjective Rating System 2.0:

90-100: My absolute favourite tea. Will impulsively buy and hoard like a dragon.

85-89: A favourite tea. May have quality flaws that I choose to ignore.

76-84: 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.
