Cocomint Cream - 24 Days of Tea Day 8Coconut and mint might not be a familiar combo, but trust us. It’s seriously addictive. As soon as you open your first tin and experience its fresh, sweet-mint aroma, you’ll understand. It’s the kind of tea you always want to have within arm’s reach. It makes a sweet little afternoon pick-me-up. Or a perfect finale to any meal. Or a midnight snack that won’t keep you up all night.

aroma:

A strong mint aroma rises from this tea the instant you pour hot water over it. Actually, the instant you open the tin it seems to unfurl throughout the immediate area with a clean, fresh, and somewhat sweet scent that is highly inviting. The powerful aroma features a touch of floral but is dominated by the initial peppermint deluge and the more subtle coconut notes.

flavour:

Mostly mint up front, the flavour of Cocomint Cream is more equally balanced than the aroma with coconut breaking softly through to bring a sweet creaminess. A highly refreshing brew, it is very crisp and clean and a great remedy for stuffy sinuses. Perfect as is, I imagine it would also make a very tasty and extremely refreshing  iced tea as well. Cozy and comforting, it is a great blend to offer with desert or on Christmas morning around the tree.
