Samurai TTB #23
There was only about a tsp of this tea left in the bag, so I think my cup was under-leafed. I mainly tasted the white tea base with hints of vanilla and coconut. No lemon that I could discern.
Flavors: Coconut, Hay, Lemon

“From the Samurai TTB A nice blend of coconut and vanilla. The vanilla brings out the toastiness of the coconut and I’m not getting lemon at all. It’s a coconut cream pie in a cup. An easygoing,...” Read full tasting note

“Another of my new teas. This one’s okay – not quite as good as some other coconutty whites I’ve had. I think I want some butterscotch or something? It tastes more like just coconut + bai mu dan.” Read full tasting note

Finally cleared out enough fridge space to start cold brewing again, so I set this one up yesterday night so I’d have something to drink during the commute today. Easter is probably going to be a pretty sad holiday this year, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still enjoy some Easter teas this month!
This was really delicious, and exactly what I needed! Very light/delicate and super creamy, it was like drinking a liquefied lemon and coconut marshmallow peep! Without the crazy sugar overload you would get from a regular peep, of course. Sweet and creamy is basically the ultimate in comfort profiles right now, so it was really relaxing.
A bright moment of sunshine on a grey day!
Another sample from Kittenna. Thank you!
This one is nice but not nearly as good as Lime Pear Fluff. This is much more subtle with flavors which allows the white tea to come out a bit more. Personally, I don’t love that but for some that could definitely be a positive.
Besides the white tea, I get coconut and lemon. Faint and sweet lemon as opposed to the actual fruit flavor or cleaning supplies. The softer lemon blends nicely with the coconut which is not lotiony but also not overly sweet or creamy. Again, this might be a positive for some but I would prefer a bit more.
All in all, it is okay but this is a tea I am okay not being able to have more of. Thank you for the chance to try it though, Kittenna!
