||Tastes better than it smells
|When I smelled the loose tea, I didnt think I would like it - theres a very strong artificial coconut smell that made me think it would be like drinking sunscreen. But once brewed, the flavors are much more balanced. The heat from the ginger, especially, really shines through, but without being too strong.|

||Refreshing and fantastic blend!
|Another charming blend from S&V. Whoa, S&V is consistently amazing. This one is part of the specials this month, so I thought it was about time to review. In both the fragrance and flavor, there is equal parts lime and coconut. Also hints of lemongrass and ginger to really round it out... and Im not usually a ginger fan but it works here. There is a leaf of gunpowder green here and there but Im glad there is more of the flavors than green tea in this blend. Its strong, tasty, and Im sure its delicious iced. I would definitely keep stocking up on this one whenever I run out. Perfect for summer!
