drank Coconut Cream Pie by DAVIDsTEA
16 tasting notes

A new favourite. I’m usually conservative with my stashes, but I blasted through a 50g bag of this in a week. I can drink this any time of day as a very pleasant pick-me-up.

The dry leaves certainly smell like a pie – the crust/ baked aromas come through quite strongly. Very sweet overall.

You don’t get much of a crust flavour in the liquer. Certainly butter, but no crust. Overall it’s very nutty and smooth. For the people that aren’t big coconut fans, it doesn’t have that poopy flavour that coconut can sometimes have. Slight oil droplets on the surface from the chocolate and coconut but nothing too obnoxious.

I prepare this a little differently. I will get the kettle to a full boil and as I am waiting, I pick the white chocolate chips out of the tea and put it along with my sweetner of choice into the cup. Once the water is at a full boil, I pour a little into the cup and stir it briskly to get the chocolate and sugar well dissolved. I then fill the cup and steep the tea (in bag or strainer) with the kettle water that has had a chance to cool. While the tea is steeping I usually tug the bag up and down a couple times to break up the leaves if they clump together. That way the chocolate is fully incorporated and you get a perfect, flavourful steep.

Hi, I’m MG. I’m a gal in my mid 20’s, recently graduated from college. I am an illustrator by trade but have other hobbies on the side such as jewellery making, writing, and video games.

I am a casual amateur in teas. I enjoy trying most things. My favourite teas are greens, whites, florals, and dessert teas. I have a sweet tooth which dictates many impulse purchases. I really, really love a mellow black tea with rose. Am currently on a quest to find a nice clean rose/ black tea that doesn’t have any other flavours added.

Teas I really am not a fan of would be overly sour/ smokey pu’erhs, wine-flavoured teas, teas with hot chili in them, and teas that involve star anise/ licorice. I enjoy lighter pu’erh or pu’erh blends but I feel that tea should not taste smokey. Ew. I love wine, I just think trying to drink it hot or combine it with tea is nasty. And as for anise, it’s just a flavour I have strongly disliked since childhood. I’ve tried to like it many times…just..no. If I detect the slightest hint of licorice in a non-medicinal tea, it loses major points or gets chucked.

My rating system:

95-100: A perfect favourite. Loving it and hoarding mass quantities to keep forever.

90-94: Favourite, I will crave it often and repurchase indefinitely.

80-89: Very good, I enjoy it a lot and will purchase.

70-79: Left a good impression and will probably keep some around.

60-69: Drinkable but probably won’t be repurchasing.

40-59: Fail. Did not enjoy, but finishable.

0-39: Somehow this tea managed to be truly awful. These teas are about as rare for me as the 95-100’s.
