- coconut mmmmmm! Review by Lana
- Perhaps it is the mate, this is not a tea I am accustom to Review by Lanora
I even used more and tries various temperatures and steeping times. I still enjoy the taste I just wish I could taste more tea.
Perhaps it is the mate, this is not a tea I am accustom to. So I do enjoy the smooth sweet coconut and the warming spices this saves the tea for me also I mixed it with White Tea with Coconut and was even happier with my end result! (Posted on 1/2/10)
