So excited this finally got here! :) Today is an especially good day for tea, cold, dark and raining. So I’ve been snuggling on the couch with several cups of hot tea in a row. I’ve been looking forward to this one arriving in quite some time. Let’s get started.
Initial impressions are very good. The scent is lovely; both strongly of coconut but also of black tea. Probably smell about 50/50 of each, which is very promising. The coconut flakes are ENORMOUS, but in the way you’d want. Big enough that they promise to offer a lot of flavor, but not so humongous that you have to use a ton of scoops to get some leaf along with it.
Yummy yummy yum yum! :D It’s exactly what I wanted. I love black tea, I love coconut and this is a match made in heaven, heh. It’s deliciously sweet, but not so saccharine that you can’t taste the black tea base. I don’t generally drink flavored blacks very often, but I think this could easily become a tea I drink nearly everyday. This is also one of those rare special teas where the taste is more delicious than the smell. I’ll have to stock up on this. :)
