The name of this tea is a bit misleading, as it isn’t really much of a replication of actual Thai Tea. I love me some Thai iced tea and can’t recall ever having a cup with such a coconuty flavor, and think they should’ve gone with a different name. That said, for what it is, it’s a pretty enjoyable black tea. I like coconut flavored teas, so the strong coconut notes are quite enjoyable. There is a small hint of vanilla (which is really the flavor they should’ve played up if they wanted to taste more like Thai tea, in my opinion!) but it doesn’t stand out as much compared to the coconut. I’m a bit sad that none of the cardamom presented itself in the flavor. The base comes off a bit stronger than I prefer my black teas; I can tell that a lot of things were added to try to naturally sweeten this tea up (apple, honeybush), but it is still pretty astringent, at least to my tastes. So I have to take this with just a dash of vanilla coconut creamer, which helps sweeten the tea up a bit while adding a slight creaminess and emphasizing the vanilla and coconut flavors.
Honestly, this just comes across as a coconut black tea, and there are better coconut black blends out there. If you are looking for a tea that tastes like Thai tea like the name suggests, this certainly isn’t it.
