Dry, the leaves smelled a bit like cinnamon. Steeped, they smelled like perfume, which gave me a bit of panic, since I really can’t take those perfumey teas. Happily, it doesn’t actually taste like perfume, but it definitely has some floral aspects. And I do taste a light spice note, though not cinnamon necessarily. I think it’s a reach to call this coconut, though. I get a tiny hint of coconut way in the background, but it is faint compared to all the other flavors.

What a misleading name then. If something is supposed to have creamy, toasted coconut, damn straight I’m going to expect that rather than cinnamon and perfume.

Yeah, it’s not a good approach to the flavor at all :( And then I ended up dumping the cup about half way through because the perfume notes started going to my head.
