This blend was quite decadent and aromatic. I thought that the fruity and floral flavors played off of each other really well. The coconut shreds added an almost candy-like element but it wasn’t artificial tasting. Overall this was a very balanced cup with very little astringency. The almond flavoring brought a subtle, almost creamy smoothness. I resteeped this tea a second time and it was just as delicious, if not more so. I have been really impressed with all of the teas that I have tried from Joy’s Teaspoon so far. I also have to add that I LOVE their sample tins. I’m saving all of my empties so that I can re-purpose them to make lip balm with a group of preteen Girl Scouts.
