Thank you Bonnie for passing along this sample!
I brought 4 ounces of water to a boil and let it cool for a minute. Poured it over the teaspoon sample of dry leaf for three minutes, resulting in a pale yellow liquor. This has a slightly fuller body compared to GM’s coconut pouching offering. The coconut flavoring in The Spice and Tea Exchange is very similar to that of GM’s; it light and refreshing.
A resteep with slightly hotter water and an additional minute of brew time provided an equally enjoyable cup!
In the third steeping, the coconut taste is much less so, but there’s still plenty of oolong flavor to press forward for those who are looking to get the most bang for their buck.
This is definitely a contender as a cupboard staple, especially since it’s half the price!
