Lovely! this is a lovely tea. but for some reason I’m not all over it. Why?!?
It has all the criteria for me to go gaga but I’m just not? Maybe I wasn’t in the right mood. Hmmm.
I love coconut, I looooove it! and sometimes it bothers me in a tea, especially when there are whole pieces. (I am fine with the oil, I think)
It didn’t set anything off for me though, thankfully, which I was worried about.
The black base is light, almost airy, and it mixes really well with the coconut. I didn’t add anything at all and it was very sweet on it’s own.
For my second steep, I added some milk. A little too much I think. My arm was nudged by a coworker passing by and I tipped in more than intended. Oh well. It was very tasty both with and without the “lait”.
You know what… it reminds me of my Coconut Oolong that I heart so very much, only it has less depth. The second steep was also rather weak, I kept that bag in until the cup was gone.
In another way, it reminds me of Love tea #7 (I think that’s what it’s called? I can’t remember now). It’s one of my faves…
So of course, if I had to choose between the two, I’d def go with the love tea. Yes that must be why I’m having trouble identifying! between those two other teas, this one just falls short.
That said, if you like coconuts and hate oolongs, this will be the tea for you :)
