A generous sample from Azzrian thank you.
I like coconut and I like pouchong, so I couldn’t really have a problem with this one, and I most certainly did not! I can smell the coconut before I even open the bag, this is not a bad thing, I promise! The coconut mellows out a little when steeped, not quite as strong as the initial dry smell. Toasted coconut/coconut macaroons with a buttery texture and hints of vegetal. Absolutely wonderful tea.
The only problem I have with this tea is that most of the teas I have are light and delicate and this one is very potent in smell, so I have to keep this one away from the rest of them. It looks at me all by itself with puppy dog eyes wondering what it has done to be separated from the rest. I always reassure it that it’s because it’s special in a very good way.
Again, thank you Azzrian!
