The combination of green, black and white tea in this blend has kept me from trying it until now. It’s one of my last few Della Terra samples, though, and it’s been hanging around long enough. For my first cup, I treated it like I would a white/green, so 2.5 minutes in water cooled to around 180 degrees. The resulting liquor is a light golden brown, and smells deliciously coconutty!
To taste, this one more than lives up to its name. It’s creamy, for sure, absolutely coconutty, absolutely, and rounded off with the thick butteriness of white chocolate. None of the base teas seem particularly prominent, largely because the flavouring is so strong they don’t really have a chance. It’s very lightly malty, but that’s all I can really detect. Possibly I could have left the water a little hotter, so I’ll probably give that a try next time.
This is undoubtedly a VERY sweet tea, and I like sweet things so that’s not something I’d usually remark on too much. It’s on the borderline between sweet and cloying, though, even for me. In small doses, and as a dessert replacement, that’s fine. I probably couldn’t drink cup after cup of this one, though, however dreamy it tastes. An occasional sweet treat.
