drank Coconut Oolong by Zen Tea
7 tasting notes

I got this as a sample from Zen Tea, and I really quite like it. From what I’ve tried, their teas seem to have a very good balance; the flavoring isn’t too strong as to overpower the tea, and the tea isn’t too overwhelming for the flavorings. This tea was a perfect example of that.

The smell of it was like a coconut candy, sweet and roasty smelling. I ended up steeping it three times, and by the third time the brew lost most of it’s “coconuttiness” but the oolong was still flavorful enough to enjoy. The first brew, however, was just what I would like to expect. Very smooth, very balanced.

Bio

I’ve been a bagged tea drinker for a very long time, just recently expanding my horizons to the world of loose leaf. You may notice from my “collection” I seem to be particular of a certain brand; I am definitely keen on finding other high quality online retailers and it seems this is the place to look! In terms of tastes, it’s hard to pick a favorite tea. For me, there’s a tea for every emotion. A tea for every craving. From sophisticated and refined tea, to wild and exciting blends, it’s impossible to get bored with all the choices tea has to offer.

I’m not really interested in any personal exchanges, but I’d love some retailer recommendations. I’m especially a sucker for retailers with samples, and purchases that come with storage tins (they keep my tea shelf so pretty~!).

Of course my interests aren’t limited to tea, but that’s what I’m here for, so this bio will have to do for now~!
