This smells like a slightly heartier Earl Grey, so I didn’t even bother trying it without milk. The scent alone is enough to make me want to rate this tea high, but I guess I’ll wait until I actually try drinking it.
On first sip it’s quite tasty, definitely an Earl Grey base, and though I can sort of taste the rooibos, it’s not overpowering; it complements the EG quite nicely (I’m not a fan of rooibos so I was a little leery of that part of this tea). I can’t really tell there’s coconut in it, though there’s something adding a delicate sweetness that may be the elusive coconut. Something delicious this way comes with the addition of a little bit of honey.

I hated tea growing up. Then something wonderful happened.

I was introduced to my first delicious cup of tea in Costa Rica, when my host mother made me a cup of Royal Blend by Fortnum & Mason. I was hooked.

Probably because of that first cup, black teas are my favorite. I’ll sometimes go for herbals or fruit teas if they have the right flavor, but usually they feel too weak; I’d rather just eat the fruit itself. A rooibos will almost always get a low rating from me; it’s just not my thing. Green teas are okay if iced or prepared well hot.
