I was just going to sip this down, but it was so good that I think I am going to keep it around. First of all, it lasted well for two steeps, which is pretty impressive in my book. I don’t typically have the desire to actually drink the second steeping of a flavored blend like this, as it’s usually a more disappointing version of the first steep. Talk about a depressing cup of tea!
This is the kind of tea that is very obviously meant to show off their coconut (flavoring), which I have had in two blends now and is amazing. The tea is all about the coconut and vanilla flavor, which reminds me of Jello instant pudding. I am always picking up the almond extracty taste (alcohol and all) a little, but it gets a bit stronger as the brew cools.
The mouthfeel is a bit thin, and the black base is almost nowhere to be found except the slightest bit of malt and astringency. But it makes up for it in custardy creamy flavor. I am almost afraid to know what a latte version of this would taste like.
