2021 sipdown no. 41
This one has really grown on me. It’s exactly what it says it is and I enjoy all the ingredients. The lavender is pretty forefront, but the chocolate and coconut it mellow it out in a nice balance.

Dozy Girl has met her match! We thought it was time to add some balance to our tea shelf… Like Dozy Girl, this blend is fantastic for sleeping – a rooibos base infused with calming lavender and a most pleasant complement of cocoa & coconut, Lazy Boy is a blend that everyone can share & love!

Thanks to tea-sipper for letting me try this one! This tea totally reminds me of Teavana’s lavender creme flavor! Very sweet and desserty. You get a nice lavender flavor supported by the other ingredients. B&B’s rooibos is great, as always. I’m almost regretting not grabbing some of this during the sale.
Happy World Mental Health Day! Today the prompt is to drink a favorite spirit-lifting comfort tea!
This is one of mine, and one I tend to hide in the back of the cupboard, telling myself, “It’s too good to drink it too often!” …Which is silly (especially for a coconut tea!) and something I’ve tried to be better about. I have actually pulled this out a few times this last week, as I just love this flavor combination of sweet coconut, rich cocoa shells, and a lovely kissing of floral lavender. I’m a fan of lavender with chocolate and lavender with coconut, so these flavors just work perfectly for me. I also love the nutty/caramelly rooibos base which allows me to enjoy this decadent tea right before bed. It’s definitely a comfort, and right when I need it (my kitty goes in for some oral surgery tomorrow, and I’m an overly worried fur parent).
Flavors: Caramel, Cocoa, Coconut, Floral, Lavender, Sweet
This is the first of the Dreamtime Collection teas I’ve tried (except Dozy Girl, which is part of the standard Bluebird line-up, so I’m not really counting that one.) I like the idea of coconut and cocoa, but lavender has me feeling a little wary. I made this one up as a latte with coconut milk, as per Bluebird’s recommendation and, surprisingly, it’s pretty good. Not my favourite, but good.
Obviously the coconut milk has significantly amplified the coconut flavour here, and it’s also added a creaminess that would otherwise be lacking. The lavender is the second strongest flavour, and is still fairly pungently floral, but not obnoxiously so. The cocoa comes in last; really just a hint of chocolate towards the end of the sip.
I’m happy with how the cocoa and coconut work together – that’s a tried and tested combination. I’m not over sold on the lavender – it’s a little jarring, and it feels like it doesn’t really quite fit in here. As a combination, especially with the milk, it’s a touch rich and cloying – quite difficult to drink in latte quantities (which for me means 500ml plus.) A smaller cup would definitely suffice for me.
On the whole, though, it’s not too bad. I like the coconut/coconut milk, and I got a good night’s sleep so perhaps it helped some. It has a rooibos base, but I wouldn’t have known with it made up this way – it could have been herbal, or even black…there was no taste to give it away. Where rooibos is concerned, that’s probably a good thing.
I doubt I’d buy more of this one, just because lavender isn’t really my thing and I don’t think it works particularly well with coconut and cocoa. Glad to have tried it, though, because you never know!
