I’ve never been a fan of coconut. It’s more the texture than the taste, so when I saw this tea and its lovely packaging, I decided to try it.
Each pyramid bag comes wrapped in its own foil package. When opened, the smell instantly hits you…thick, rich, chocolate-y. Not overpowering, mind, but noticeable. Your first cup will have you literally standing over the brew, watching the timer count down until it’s ready.
I brew this for 5 minutes, sometimes with boiling water, others with cooler water. When brewed with boiling water, it creates a thick, deep-bodied tea that (to me) has little coconut taste. When brewed with cooler water, the cup is rather delicate, with the coconut predominant and lingering. Both are wonderful.
