4 Tasting Notes
I was so sad to hear that this tea was discontinued. It’s so good! Such a fresh and light taste that makes you want to go back for seconds, thirds, ninths, etc. The smell of the coconut is so nice and it really does take you to the beach. Bring spring break back!!!!!!
This is a solid black tea. The leaves have a rich aroma which I love. Be careful not to add too many leaves though, the tea can get bitter very quickly so the amount of tea leaves you add is crucial! I like drinking it black and straight up so maybe adding milk would make it less bitter.
Recently I made Earl Grey Gin! It was amazing. I left the tea leaves in the Gin for over 24 hours so it did end up bitter. I’m going to try it again and steep it for a few hours instead of overnight next time but still a great overall flavor! It tasted like unsweetened iced tea. I’m excited to continue perfecting a recipe over the summer!!
Definitely try it for a few hours! I did the same with a raspberry honey black tea – try tasting as you go, I found even after a few hours it got too bitter. Good luck! Drunk on tea :D
As a long time tea lover I’m skeptical about trying just ANY tea, but when the woman at David’s told me this was like peach juice I was in! After ordering it, another employee perked up and asked who was having the juju. I said it was me, and he came over and told me it would be the BEST tea I ever had. I was unsure about his claims but he was RIGHT! Now I am insanely addicted to this tea. I’ve had it iced and I have to say it’s just not as good. I drink it hot straight up and am just the happiest person because of it. It’s so tasty (who doesn’t love peach juice, right?). I have at least 3 cups of this a day and it has been really getting me through school. THE BEST! I highly recommend it.
EDIT! so this summer I’ve been drinking it iced non-stop and it’s been pretty good!! I still like it better hot. I make it in my glass mug and then put it in the fridge while it’s still steeping overnight. I feel like it needs to be steeped for an extra long time if it’s cold to get all of the yummy yummy flavors out.
