|Coconut Creme Tea from Persimmon Tree|
Tea Company: Persimmon Tree Tea
In Review: Coconut Creme Tea
Dry Review: White Peony leaves, accented Blue Cornflowers, Red Safflower and white bits of shaved coconut
HOT: This subtle white tea is infused with a coconut essence, that makes for a simple pleasurable delight. The enjoyment is in its simplicity.
ICED: I think I like this even better when iced. The natural sweetness of the coconut makes for a refreshingly cooling drink!
Personal Thoughts: It's overly simple - the blank canvas of a light white tea whereupon a splash of coconut has been added. The main thing I question is the use of flavorings which are not accounted on the website as being either natural or artificial. In every "herbal" infusion of theirs, they allude to a flavoring, which for me means that something is added and/or covering up in the name of low-quality and instant flavor association. I realize that this is a popular practice these days - but not one I personally enjoy.
NOTE: There are people with allergies to "artificial" and even to "natural" flavorings, so this is something to be upfront about.
