I cannot with this tea (especially straight), but I think I finally found a solution that will help me drink it away once and for all:

Coconut Whip Cream.

Lots and lots of Coconut Whip Cream.

I suspect that the coconut flakes from the blend have long gone rancid but I sure can’t tell underneath all that Coconut Whip Cream. The sugar helps bring out the “chocolate pudding” too in what is otherwise a dominantly smokey pepper tea.

Edit: You know what? I think I’m just going to toss this one. It hasn’t aged well at all and I’m just not a fan of the chocolate flavouring in AQ2T’s blends (it’s not you, it’s me).

Flavors: Cacao, Coconut, Pepper, Smoke, Spices

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 0 sec

Oh hmm. Do I have some of this? I should really peruse my teas for coconut ones, and salvage what can be salvaged if it’s not yet too late.

I kind of wish I had waited before chucking it after seeing your not re- latte with maple syrup. That does sound good but mine was on the disgusting side of tired.

Meh, if yours already wasn’t good, not worth keeping just for a latte. Mine tasted fine as a non-latte, just too much heat + smoke for me. I saw one coconut flake but didn’t check for rancidity.

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

My favourites are teas like Milk Oolong, Silver Needle,and Japanese Sencha/Gyokuro, or fruity and floral flavoured ones. However, I generally enjoy ALL the teas, including a good old cup of Earl Grey or Breakfast blend.

Subjective Rating System:
I don’t give a lot of low ratings out, since a) I tend to grab tea I know will appeal to me, and b) I don’t have a lot of strong dislikes.

90-100: Favourites. The Desert Island Teas.
80-89: Loved teas. Possibly staple-worthy.
70-79: Good teas, but I’m less likely to repurchase. Minor quibbles.
60-69: Ok teas. Likely a few preference and/or quality issues.
50-59: Cup of meh. Will do in a pinch.
11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea.
1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This tea is the embodiment of the primordial swamp, an unholy abomination. It’s very gross and I’m almost positive it doesn’t exist.
