This is another of the coconut teas that has made its way over to my Sipdown Station™ so I will drink it while the coconut is still good. I made this cup late last night, after the sun had gone down and the house finally started cooling off, but was too tired to log it, so hopefully my (poor) memory doesn’t fail me.
I used 5g to 350ml 205F water, steeped “teabag left to soak in the cup” style. This had such a rich and sweet coconut flavor! Aaah, why does coconut go bad so fast? I tend to avoid it as an ingredient now because of that, but when it is still good, I just really dig coconut-flavored teas, and this one was no exception. There was a sweet creaminess to the tea as well. At first I was getting that “peppery” flavor note from the honeybush base, but as the tea kept sitting and steeping in my cup, by the time I was about halfway in that note had mellowed out and instead it was tasting more like a slightly nutty honey and oats flavor. It wasn’t quite a graham flavor, but I could still see how that flavor note was a bit like a pie crust.
Really liked this one and looking forward to the next few cups!
