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.
