Tea for me. Tea for you. A tea you must do!

After surviving yet another nightmare experience with the world's most miserable postal worker at my local post office, I was in need of something soothing and thirst quenching. I opted to patronize the coffee shop directly next door. It was cold so I wanted something hot. I was going to go for my usual green, black, mate or rooibos tea and then I saw it. It was displayed without the reverence it deserves. It was tropical. It was delicious and so so so so so soooooo smooth. Another bonus is that it satisfied my craving for a candybar without the calorie and sugar overload. My friends allow me to introduce you to The Art of Tea's White Coconut Creme Tea. This tea is just as beautiful as it tastes. The coconut taste is very subtle so don't let the flavor profile scare you away. 

The Art of Tea is a Los Angeles based tea importer and wholesaler. They specialize in hand blended and custom crafted teas. Their teas are composed of personally selected organic teas and botanicals. The founder of the company is a Master Tea Blender who studied preventative medicine at the Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico. Some other tea flavors from the Art of Tea that I am dying to try out include Apple Pie, Coconut Cacao Puerh, Coconut Lime Verbena, Butterscotch, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Monkey.
