I got this from iHeartTeas during her tea sell off. I’ve been curious to try something from 52teas so when I saw she had a bunch of samples I jumped all over it. So much for not buying anymore tea this month.

Just opening the package hits you with the strong scent of coconut and there are coconut flakes mixed in with the honeybush. Before steeping I was curious how the cake was going to figure in to this blend and with the first steep I didn’t quite get it. Actually, I almost burned my mouth off because I was being impatient, so really was the whole issue this time. Once the tea cooled off to a drinkable temperature I totally got hints of the cake, it was a nice creamy feel with each sip. I do with I could taste a little more of the cake aspect, but otherwise I think this is delicious.

I wish I had a little coconut milk to add to this, I think it would be delicious, but I cleaned out the fridge this morning and dumped it. I’m leaving for a two week trip to rural Kansas and Oklahoma Friday morning and I’m really sad that I’ll have to leave my new tea samples at home. Well water and tea just don’t work well together.

I am always interested in swapping so if you see anything in my cupboard that you want to try just send me a message. Please keep in mind that I order most of my teas in sample sizes and may not have a lot to swap. I’m also trying to keep my swaps limited to one a month so I don’t break the bank.

My favorite tea companies to order from are American Tea Room, Rishi, TeaVivre, and Single Origin Teas, however I am constantly lured away from my favorites by a good sale.

Ingredients I love in tea
rose, peach, oolong, osmanthus, vanilla, marshmallow root and peppermint

Ingredients I dislike in tea:
spearmint, chocolate, orange, hibiscus, sage and for the most part lemon.

I am a firm believer that sage only belongs in my thanksgiving stuffing/dressing and absolutely not in my tea.

Cinnamon, Chocolate, Burdock Root, and Goji Berries

Rating Guidelines:

100 – 90: Pantry essential and some of my all time favorites that I can’t live without.

89 – 80: You’ll have a pretty good chance of finding this is my pantry on a regular basis, but it isn’t the end of the world if I run out.

79 – 70: I might consider restocking this at some point if the price was right.

69 – 40: Not undrinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.

39 – 20: What in the world were they thinking? Probably still finished this just because I hate to waste anything.

19 – 0: Wow, that’s so terrible chances are pretty good I dumped it out and gave away the rest.

My current top five favorite teas:

China Black – Rishi Tea
Earl Grey Cream – Zen Tea
Lemoncello – American Tea Room
Nonpareil Anxi Qing Xiang TieGuanYin Oolong – TeaVivre
White Tea Rose Mélange – Rishi Tea
