This was a sample included in my latest DBD order. I tend to avoid purchasing too many teas with coconut because I don’t want to worry about them going rancid. But, very glad I got to try this one. It’s delicious. The lavender is incredibly strong and aromatic. But, is mellowed by the soft, creamy coconut. The green base is barely distinguishable. Overall, a really tasty blend.
I just received my Dessert by Deb order that I placed a few weeks ago! Deb’s packages are the absolute best. In addition to the extra 50g packet I was able to choose with a recent discount code, Deb also included an adorable boba notebook, a matcha pin, a metal tin, a teapot shaped teabag rest, 3 extra samples, and a handwritten card! Such a generous package of goodies.
It was difficult to decide what to try first, but ended up going with this one- glad I did! I absolutely love it. It’s quite simple, but works really well. It’s a very straightforward flavor- brown sugar+black tea, but I find the combo so delicious and comforting. I didn’t prepare it as a milk tea this time, as I wanted to test it out plain to start. But, I will certainly be revisiting this with a creamy addition.
Finished this off as a coldbrew with honey. The lychee scent is absolutely divine. The front of the sip is juicy, and tastes like biting into a fresh lychee. However, there is a really strong perfumey flavor at the end of the sip and in the aftertaste. The perfumey flavor is so distracting, it’s difficult to enjoy the fresh, juiciness.
