Yep, a coconut tea, which I don’t like to stock up on these days, but this was $1 and only an ounce.  I woke up this morning thinking this blend might be a disaster so I wanted to drink it today just to check.  It’s very good though!  I didn’t think the  green yerba mate flavor would work with the coconut flavor, but it tastes seamless here. I actually had to check to see if this really was yerba mate – and it is.  Maybe yerba mate tastes earthier the older it gets?  It’s very mellow here!  I’m sure it being mixed with a black tea helps balance the flavor.  And I can really appreciate a FRESH coconut tea.  It’s so good here.  Tastes just like a coconut macaroon and I’m not sure how mixed with black tea and yerba mate!  Even the second steep is lovely at boiling, maybe a slight bit of the base flavors more present.  I’m glad I spent that dollar on this. 
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for full mug // 20 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 3-4 minute steep

I listened to their podcast Steeping Around. Kept me interested for at least the first episode. I have liked all the teas I bought except the prickly pear, though I’m still experimenting with water temp on that one. I’ll probably purchase from them again.

Oh, I didn’t know they had a podcast! I’m glad you liked all the tea you bought (minus one). I will be verry slowly trying them all probably.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
