Sil said this one should be called coconut cake and when I brewed it up it was a lot of that sort of lotion-y coconut smell. So I was worried. Thankfully, it is creamy but not lotion-y. Plus, it’s not ALL coconut. I means it’s a lot of coconut but with a generic berry flavor underneath and at the end of the sip. Honestly, I am getting a super thick and coconut cream mouth feel as if someone put a whackload of coconut whipped cream on top of some macerated berries. But like the ratio is like 2:1 or maybe even 3:1 coconut whipped cream: berries. Nothing says cake to me though. Also, I am getting the slightest bit of green tea base but not as much as I worried there would be given this is a green tea but was steeped for 5 minutes at 200F, per Dessert by Deb’s steeping recommendations.
So I’d say this one is good but not great and not one I need more of. With that said, this is a sipdown of the sample that came in my July order with Sil and Roswell Strange but I got another sample of it with the Fall teas that arrived yesterday.
