TY out to Zen Tea for a sample of this!
I do like my coconut – especially these days since my husband and his family hate it, so I’m mysteriously drawn to coconut more and more.
I chose this Coconut green and their Coconut Oolong from Zen teas – see which one I like more!
DRY: Smells like coconut milk with a hint of grassyness. Interesting
STEEPED: Fragrant green, with a creamy smell. Golden green colour.
TASTE: Sweet coconut, like eating a fresh baby coconut – buttery, milky, naturally sweet. All this is balanced with a sencha base. No bitterness.
The flavor has no fancy frills – just coconut and sencha, no chocolate, pineapple or stevia. Actually, from all these Zen teas I’ve tried, they follow that theme – no frills or wild blends, simple flavoring, playing up the tea.
Very good! I like how balanced the coconut and sencha are. If you prefer a green over oolong, I’d give this tea a try.
Coconut green = More balanced flavoring with coconut and sencha together
Coconut oolong = the coconut melds with the oolong, enhancing the creamy and sweet of the bao zhong, with a coconut finish.
Tough call, I’m leaning on Coconut oolong more as the whole experience is overall fantastic, but coconut green has a good balance I enjoy.
