Pick me up! Perk me up! Wake me up! Shake me up! I need something to put some sparkle in my day! Something pink and glittery would be nice. I’m hoping this Strawberry Coconut Pu’erh will do the trick!
|Strawberry Coconut Pu’erh|
No glitter, but it does smell pink! Out of the jar, it smells like strawberry and chocolate…like Neopolitan Ice-cream. Like a milkshake in a tall soda-fountain glass. Like youth! I think I’ll drink it in my Easter-chick mug for extra happiness.
Steeped, it’s a deep caramel colour. The first sip is mild, and a little sweet. There isn’t any obvious strawberry, or coconut flavour. It just tastes like a nice mellow, sweet tea…. (disappointed…no glitter!).
AAAHHHHHH…There it is!! It’s in the aftertaste! OK… that’s not a bad thing. It’s unexpected, but unmistakable….strawberry. I can’t find the coconut, but maybe that’s working behind the scenes to temper the fruit and give it some smoothness. This isn’t a powerful tea. It feels like a warm, fuzzy pink blanket. Or bunny slippers. Soft, and girly. “Strawberry Shortcake” rather than “Powerpuff Girls”.
This tea came from Bulk Barn.
