What have I done?! I just uncovered this tea hiding behind some tins. I’m not sure how long it has been hiding there, but it was long enough for the coconut to take on the slightly soapy taste that coconut does as it ages. It feels like an abuse of tea, especially a Butiki! Luckily it isn’t too far gone and I can overlook the taste while focusing on the other flavors. I can pick out the banana for sure. It is very aromatic making for a nice aftertaste. It is lighter than I usually prefer, favoring heartier blacks, but still very enjoyable.

Oh no! Soapy coconut is the worst. Glad you were able to salvage this one, though!

Nattie

Noooo! This is one of my favourites, I’ll have to stop hoarding it before it goes bad.

Memily

Noooooo is THAT what causes coconut to not taste great in tea? Old age!? OMG

Dustin

I’m going to have to drink through this fast. A pitcher of cold brew could do the trick. I hoarded my Three Friends and it is sadly now just a ghost of it’s former self. Yes, Memily… coconut doesn’t have a super long shelf life and gets that soapy taste as it ages. I wonder if it can be prevented by storing it in the freezer without effecting the integrity of the rest of the tea.

Nattie

Aw crap, I hoarded Three Friends too!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
