Sipdown! 63/365 (not technically, since I’m actually dumping the last cup or two out, but it counts!)
My recollection of this tea is that the first time I tried it (within a week of purchase), I felt like the coconut had already gone off. I probably should have returned it and gotten my $5 back. I figured I’d give it another shot before tossing it, but yeah, this tea is gross. I actually now think that it’s the combination of hibiscus and coconut that’s causing the problem, although I’m not convinced that the coconut isn’t also a little funky. The first sips of this, while hot, were sour and gross; now that it’s cooled, it tastes tropical but soapy. Looks like I wasn’t the only one with less than positive opinions about this tea, either.
Anyhow, I would not recommend this tea. The ingredients are ridiculous for a tea “representing the great white north” (melon, pineapple, coconut… really?!), and the mashup of flavours is not working. Or maybe the coconut wasn’t fresh, and it’s ruining everything. I think it’s been gone for a while now, so little danger of people going out and purchasing it, but, ew.
