I sorta ended up at a DavidsTea today to look at the new teas/stuff, even though I hadn’t planned on it. :| #whoops
I walked out with 20g of Coconut Oolong, CopaBanana and Pom Tango, and a to-go cup of Daydreamer and only spent $7. Not bad!!!
I was really excited about the tea because I ADORE Zen Tea’s version (http://steepster.com/teas/zen-tea/30457-coconut-oolong) and wanted to try this version.
So, I think that means that it’s time for a SIPOFF!
-dark black/green leaves. no sign of coconut
-very slight coconut smell
-light green/black leaves with lots of bright coconut flakes.
-stronger coconut smell. slightly musty
-very smooth, buttery with lots of spinach notes
-pale yellow colour
-fresh “oolong” taste
-far less butter. not nearly as smooth/light
-rich. more spinach?
So this was a tricky decision but I think I still prefer Zen Tea’s blend over this one. They are both VERY good, but DT’s is a little darker/mustier than what I’m accustomed to. Perhaps if I steep it for less next time, my rating will change. Also, DT’s blend is a bit cheaper so I honestly don’t know which one I’d restock once I run out.
If you are at all interested in the tea, give it a shot though!
