drank Caribean Green by Tea Bar
75 tasting notes

Something about this tea just rubs me the wrong way. I’m not rating it because I don’t think it’s the tea’s fault (it’s not you, tea, it’s me!), and I find it a bit unfair when tea ratings drop because, say, someone who doesn’t like a rooibos drank a rooibos and didn’t like it.

I can’t remember which other teas like this I’ve had, but I get the impression that I just don’t like the green tea + coconut + citrus combination. I loooooove coconut, and I’ve loved it in sweet teas (e.g. White White Cocoa is one of my favourites), plus I love many citrus-y teas, but I don’t like what happens to coconut when it gets mixed with something sour. It becomes a very different ‘beast’, very clearly coconutty, but in a very very different coconut kind of way.

On the other hand, Tea Bar also does a lovely sweet coconut blend called Zoete Amandel (sweet almond), and that one I wholeheartedly recommend to all sweet coconut lovers.

Tea drinker/explorer.

I like all sorts of tea, though I’m still figuring out Rooibos and I haven’t had much luck with Darjeelings.

I love a nice tea mug/cup/pot.

Tea = happy.

My favorite typo is ‘go tit’.
