I was excited as soon as I poured the water over these leaves because the smell was intoxicating. My family even took notice and they very rarely notice by teas unless the odor is offensive. I was happy to find that the taste did not disappoint. Imagine how you'd feel after eating just a spoonful of vanilla buttercream frosting and that is exactly the impression that this tea left. It was sweet and decadent yet subtle. I was still able to taste the floral notes of the white peony but the coconut and cream were definitely the stars of the show. This would be a perfect dessert tea to stave off your sweet tooth. Art of Teas flavored blends are very well put together and this one was no exception. I've been very impressed with all of the teas that I have tried from them.
