There is a lot of coconut flake in this blend!

Toasty and delicious! The coconut is sweet and toasty… and the Wen Shan Bao Zhong is smooth, rich and slightly roasted which lends itself very well to the flavor of the coconut. Very pleasant!

A nice mouthfeel – not as heavy as an Ali Shan, but very silky. The coconut and Wen Shan seem to be made for each other!

For those of you who are considering purchasing this particular tea, I would recommend purchasing more than just an ounce – which is what I purchased! The steeping parameters call for 3 tsp per cup, and you really need it because there is a LOT of coconut flake in the blend, and I believe that you’ll be sacrificing flavor if you use less leaf. I used about 1/2 of the ounce for this infusion in my smart brewing device! Fortunately, however, it IS an Oolong and will be subjected to many infusions!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
