There was lots of coconut shavings in this scoop of tea so I crumbled them up a little bit before I added the water to expose more of the surfaces and the flavour compounds to the tea. It seemed to work – I could see some of the coconut oil forming a bit of a slick on the surface of the cup and the coconut flavour was more pronounced than it’s been in the past – although it still doesn’t dominate the tea. The taste is also a bit less ‘perfumy’ now that I reduced the steeping time by a minute.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
