Thanks Jillian!!!! :)
Everyone has been mentioning in their posts if they like dates or not so I will follow suit…I like ‘em just fine and dandy. I also LOVE coconut. I don’t know why I haven’t given this tea much thought. Hum…
But…here goes…I’m excited!!!! The aroma is really yummy…naturally sugary-sweet and it intrigues me.
It infuses on the verge of a dark brown. It almost smells a little like maple sugar post infusion…but it’s very true to the DATE.
The Coconut Slivers give it a shiny or oily look on top but it’s not distracting. I ran into the same thing with the other coconut one from 52 Teas and I liked that one fine.
This is very sweet and candy like. The aroma is FANTASTIC. It’s trying to be tricky…this tea. It’s telling me to sip more and more before typing. Well, I am doing both…a nice compromise. This is a really great flavored tea. BUT…and it’s NOT a bad BUT, BUT…you have to like dates. Since the date flavor is more IN YO FACE than the coconut I would say – you would have to like dates to try this BUT (oh no! Another BUT!?) BUT…I would think you would have to like coconut too…I am picking up the coconut more in the after taste and as it cools. So…if you like dates and coconut and a sweet surprise sort of tea or if you are looking for something that is REALLY different…give this a whirl. I am glad I did!
Oh! Did I mention…This smells AWESOME!? :P
