This tea tasted exactly like what I would imagine buttered rum to taste like. It was super rich and creamy with notes of caramel. The vanilla and the coconut were perfectly matched and there was just the right amount of sweetness. I put one of my cups in the fridge so that I could try this iced and it was just as delicious. Summer cocktails anyone? I think I will have to pick up more of this because I'm fascinated with David's Tea's suggestion of blending it with dark rum, brown sugar and a splash of milk. I'm usually a bit more of a tea purist, preferring "straight" teas, but I've been very impressed with the selections that I've tried from David's Tea.
