The flavour of this tea is pretty nice. It’s sweet but not boldly sweet to the point that you feel punched in the face. The flavours I find most dominating are coconut and caramel but again it’s not in a crazy bold kind of way, the flavours blend together quite nicely and are really subtle. As well, after this cup has sat for a while, I felt that the coconut scent became more apparent.
Flavors: Apple, Caramel, Cocoa, Coconut
I had not read too much on this tea before purchasing, but I did notice it is a rather popular blend. I let it brew for a good 6 minutes before I tried any and actually decided to just leave the tea bag in the cup while I drank it. I could really taste the different things that went into the tea, I had that slight creaminess and a hint of coconut. I did not get too much caramel until I was about half way through the cup so I think next time I’ll let it steep longer. As much as I was enjoying this tea, there was some herb or flavor that I kept getting, that I was not the biggest fan of, I didn’t mind it but it just felt a little out of place for my liking.
Overall I did enjoy the tea and will enjoy what I have left of it, I might purchase more if my next couple of cups don’t have that same taste, or if it changes more after a longer steeping.
Flavors: Caramel, Coconut, Creamy, Herbs
This is the very first tea I was given by a co-worker that started my addiction with David’s tea. I love everything about this tea, even the subtle coconut. Let me tell you it really helps with sleep too! Definitely a staple night time tea.
Flavors: Caramel, Coconut
A sachet of this came in the sampler bag I ordered, so I thought why not try it tonight? My first cup was….well honestly it was freaking delicious. I am so into all of DTs coconut teas, guys. The caramel adds the perfect kind of sweetness. The second cup was less delicious however – more of the apple-ness came out and it took on that sort of minerally flavor DTs apple blends seem to turn into, almost like the water isn’t filtered? (which mine always is) Still, I love that this is a non-traditional “sleepy time” tea without the usual villains like lavender or rose. I’m not sure if this is LE but I have sleeping problems that usually only medication works on, and this definitely helped. I think I’m going to grab a huge tin to always have on hand.
Flavors: Apple, Caramel, Coconut, Mineral, Sweet
I love dessert teas and creamy caramel and coconut things, and I love the idea of a soothing night time tea, so this sounded like it was right in my wheelhouse. I ordered my 50g bag when it was finally released and it has been sold out pretty consistently since. It’s clearly very popular. I don’t think that I will ever purchase more of this, though. I don’t like the apple in this and it has a strong apple taste to me. The apple comes off sour and tart, and strangely boozy, like apples that are starting to rot and ferment. The caramel and coconut add a sickly sweetness that I can’t exactly identify as coconut or caramel. It comes off as a very artificial sweetness to me. The whole thing tastes sort of like overripe apples in a butter rum sauce. It has a definite sour quality that I find off putting.
I’m giving this a higher-ish rating, though, because the people that I’ve served it to at my home are actually fans of it (even one friend who normally hates sweet teas).
As far as being relaxing and making me sleepy, it doesn’t… but I have PTSD (and the related insomnia), so nothing short of my prescription medication will put me to sleep.
My only other complaint is that I can’t use this in my usual David’s Tea mugs, because little particles escape through the metal mesh and the cup becomes sort of sludgy and gross. Works fine in the David’s Tea bags, though.
I’m going to keep dreaming of a lavender and coconut tea (maybe a hint of mint?) with no caffeine. That’s what I want to go to bed with :)
