Its OK"This tea has a sweet flavor to it that certainly tastes more like vanilla than coconut. I can't help but wish that there were a stronger coconut contribution to this blend."

teafrogMy sample of TeaFrog's Coconut Vanilla Flavored White tea was visually attractive and consisted of large, fluffly white tea leaves, coconut pieces, and rose petals. The ingredients list also includes "flavour", so I assume that is where the vanilla comes into play. This tea has a sweet smell that leans more towards vanilla than coconut, and that is not surprising because the amount of coconut pieces in the tea is fairly minimal. I brewed this tea following TeaFrog's recommendation (1.5 tsp infused in sub-boiling water for about two minutes). The result was an aromatic, light tan liquid. The vanilla scent was hearty and wafted through the air. This tea has a sweet flavor to it that certainly tastes more like vanilla than coconut. On its own, the vanilla flavoring is delicious, but given that this blend is supposed to be coconut and vanilla, it seems just a little too powerful. I can't help but wish that there were a stronger coconut contribution to this blend. The coconut-vanilla combo here is tasty, but in my opinion would be even better if the two flavors were better balanced. The roses impart very little to the flavor of this tea, and I consider that a good thing; other than making the tea look pretty, I am not sure that the roses really have a place in this blend. The white tea used is subtle and unassuming and makes a good base for the vanilla flavor. This blend falls in the category of "teas that I would drink again without hesitation, but wouldn't necessarily buy myself". That being said, however, I do think that this would be an excellent starter tea for those looking to expand into white teas.
