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!

glad you liked it!! I only have tried a few golden moon teas that I would keep in my stash and this for sure is one of them! :)

I need to try cold brewing this one. I wonder if it would taste like coconut milk?

Invader Zim

Ohh, cold brew sounds like it would be good. I don’t have a lot left, but I could make a mug of cold brew then review that.

If you do, let me know how it goes!

Profile

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.
