Finally, after months of seeing this tea mentioned all over Steepster, I have finally gotten my hands on some. And, thankfully, this is quite a way to end a work day/week.
The scent of deeply buttery rum is very present once you open this tea. The mixture of vanilla and coconut is something to experience firsthand, the smell is extremely buttery, no matter how faint it is.
But once you’re steeping, the scent grows stronger and stronger. In fact, after the first 30 seconds, I had grown impatient to waiting for the tea to brew, as I really wanted to taste it immediately. Very decadent, and maintains such an extremely buttery texture, your nostrils will thank you the rest of the day.
The flavor does not disappoint as well, making the wait worth it. Such a perfect blend of vanilla and coconut with black tea gives an impossibly creamy brew that completely satisfies.
Even immediately after opening the canister, and all the time brewing and enjoying, I can’t believe how long it took me to finally buy this wonderful tea.
