Once upon a time, I thought cheap, generic tea bags were good stuff. Then, I began dabbling in the art of loose leaf, by way of my local Wegman’s. The few selections there became my new tea heaven, and couldn’t imagine much better! After making my way into high-quality loose leaf, there are only a select few teas that I still drive all the way there to enjoy. The Coconut Oasisis one of them.
Does it blow me away? No, not quite. But I often find myself opening my jar of it just to breathe it in for a while. The taste comes through after steeping very well, and isn’t one of those teas that only smells good. The coconut taste is very evident but not overwhelming. My only complaint is that the white tea could be a bit stronger, as the resulting cup sometimes tastes like watered down coconut. This tea only gets better with add-ins! A little dollop of sweetened condensed milk really sends the tastebuds to heaven.
