Wow! This was way better (and different) from what I expected! Thanks for sending me a sample, Azzrian!
The coconut flavour in this blend is definitely different from the typical coconut you get in many teas – it smelled and tasted much like fresh coconut water or milk, which I adore. But it didn’t just taste coconutty – I tasted the white tea underneath as well! Delicious! Unfortunately, I put it in a travel mug after the first sip, and I guess I hadn’t washed the mug out well, because it tasted soapy :( And this time, I definitely don’t blame the tea, because I sampled it pre-mug and it was amazing. Second infusion (180/5.5 min) loses flavour but is still delicious. It’s also a little teeny bit bitter, but I did kind of oversteep it…. (also, just noticed there’s a wonderful creamy aftertaste. Heaven!)
I must say, I’m very, very impressed with the first blend I’ve tried from The Persimmon Tree!! That order is probably going to happen sooner rather than later…. (I want more of this!)
ETA: Third infusion was alright. That was enough, though.
