Steepster Traveling Teabox Tea

A very smooth and enjoyable tea. Although the coconut isn't a very strong flavor (it's more of a strong after taste and smell) it is there, in an odd way. The coconut shell was what I was picking up.

Not sure if I'd trudge through snow for it, but I will enjoy a cup from time to time.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep: Zarafina Black-Loose-Medium
Beautiful! Just as robust as the first cup.
I added a touch of sweetened coconut milk, which brought out the coconut meat flavor.
I think it could easily have done another steep, only I had to leave and get my train into work.

Rating: 3/4 leaves

Leaf system:
1=Bleh! not again if it were free
2=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
3=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
4=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
