Let me start by saying I love most anything coconut flavored. So, as any surprise, I’ve been eyeballing this tea for a while now. I finally received the sample package in the mail today with a few others and immediately opened this one. And what do I smell? Coconut, toasted coconut to be exact. I couldn’t quite put my finger on what exact kind of coconut it smelled like so I looked in the reviews and saw toasted coconut and coconut macaroons and they couldn’t be more correct. The wet leaves are large and dark green and smelled of pouchong more so than coconut but the taste was so well blended together. No one flavor overpowers the other, they are perfectly balanced. Nice smooth buttery notes from the pouchong mixed with sweet toasted coconut. Yum!

Preparation

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
