I finally opened this up after it had spent an embarrassingly long time sitting in the cupboard. Why, oh why, do I do this? Too many teas, too little time, I guess. I want, I buy, then I “get around to drinking it.” Terrible behavior, but such is the life of this tea addict.
I clearly like coconut flavored teas, because this is the fourth tea I own that has coconut in it. As others have observed, the scent of the dry leaf is divine – mouthwatering, even. No way the brew could deliver that much taste, and it doesn’t. BUT – it still tastes great, just not nearly as aromatic and flavorful as the scent would lead you to believe. Not the first time that’s happened to me, anyway, so I took that in stride. Cocoa-y goodness with a hint of coconut – what’s not to love? A bit Almond Joy-ish, Bounty Bar-esque, with the coconut definitely there, but in the background. Although a great dessert tea, I had it at breakfast, with no regrets. I did overleaf just a little bit, but the brew didn’t suffer for it -
in fact, I think overleafing just a bit does it good. Lovely with milk, no sweetener, per my usual. I’ll continue to enjoy this one, and it’s too bad I waited so long to open it – will be making up for lost time now.
