From Considering a new Travelling Tea Box
Rich coconut aroma rises from the pot as soon as the water hits the tea. I can smell it from several feet away. Not so overpowering in the cup, but still smells strongly of baked coconut (like a macaroon?). The flavor is also dominated by the coconut; I can hardly taste the tea. Finish similar: all coconut, very long.
I’m not sure how to rate this tea. I love coconut, and it tastes yummy, but it seems just over the top in terms of the coconut dominating the tea. It could just as easily be “coconut white” or “coconut green”. I decided that I should give it a good rating since I claim to rate purely on how much I enjoyed the tea, and I did enjoy it. It is also something I might buy, though I think I would drink it infrequently. Perhaps I should just remove enough from the travelling tea box for a few more cups.
As the tea cools toward room temperature, the oolong begins to peek out from behind the coconut. Still good.
