Tasting Notes:
Aroma: Just what you'd expect (vanilla, coconut)
Body: 4/10 on the water-coffee scale (about as strong as weak coffee)

The vanilla and coconut flavors went very well together for a light, summery taste; I was faintly reminded of the smell of suntan lotion. There was also a subtle hint of citrus, which made for a great pairing with my orange slice garnish - though the pesto on my panini tended to overpower the flavor of the tea. The tea didn't dry out my mouth the way some do, and left behind a smooth but faint aftertaste of coconut.

I'm a fairly infrequent tea drinker (I generally prefer stronger flavors), but I found this to be a pleasant blend that I'd likely order again. Three out of four leaves!

You heard him, yummy light summer tea! I bet it would be great iced. Stop by Tbar and enjoy some soon.

Rating: 3/4 leaves

Leaf system:
1=Bleh! not again if it were free
