I’m drinking this tea & writing this review in response to Nik’s review of Coconut Pouchong. I love coconut!

The scent of the dry leaves is toasted coconut with a hint of vanilla & something sweet. While brewing, I smell that mildly floral oolong base, always so smooth.

While my tea is cooling down enough to sip, I’d like to say that this is my last cup at home this morning, as a group of my adult harp students & I are taking an excursion downtown to have lunch & tea at the London Tea Room, from whence this blend came.

Unsweetened, this tea has a wonderful floral & toasted coconut taste that is smooth & deep, without being overpowering. There is a ‘wetness’ to it that I don’t know how to describe.

A little stevia & I’m drinking a macaroon! I love macaroons, nomnom, they are so yummy, nomnom…

“Hey? Where’s my cup of tea?”
It’s gone!

I was cleaning up the kitchen after dinner, washing all my little tea cups, various brewing devices, & sniffing the leftover leaves of today’s various brewings, when I came across one that smells so heavenly. What is this? It smells like butter, and carmel, and Orchid oolong. I added hot water, and I’ve been sipping it…It’s a beautiful golden yellow, the flavor is bright & shining. I drank most of it plain, still not sure what it was, some tasty, smooth oolong, then I added a drop of stevia, & the coconut jumped up & said, “Here I am!”

You need to be an animator not a harpist. Your tea has a little voice, you have another personality and your tea talks to you. Ha ha , hee hee, chuckle! (in my imagination your tea voice sounds like Hoops and Yoyo http://youtu.be/sdJZFhXg5SM ha ha ha ha ha!

Bonnie

BTW are you and I the only ones in the WORLD who got our shipment of the Dragonwell yesterday? How’d that happen?

Terri HarpLady

I noticed that, Bonnie! Nobody else has reviewed it yet! We must be special?

Bonnie

I hope that ’special is a good ’special and not the IRS kind of “you’re going to be audited” kind of ’special!

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
