Cold steeped this time after a comment from Amy-oh. Just enough to make a 12oz mug. I added a little bit of brown sugar to it like I do for all my cold-brews and let it sit overnight.

Drank it first thing this morning and boy was it good. The coconut seems a little sweeter and crisp and the pouchong tastes a little greener. There is still a very distinct creaminess to it but it’s not exactly buttery, it’s more like milk now.

The aftertaste is a little odd, I don’t know how to explain it, but it’s like an acquired taste. The first couple sips I was just like meh, then it wasn’t too bad and I didn’t mind it. It wasn’t astringent or bitter, but something along the same line.

Except for the aftertaste I like this better cold brewed, the flavors seem to pop a little more.

Ooooh, I had just been thinking last night as I drank some cooled Coconut Pouchong that it would be good iced!

Amy Oh… this is one of my very favorites from Golden Moon. It’s really quite amazing. You should try it.

@LiberTEAS – lol, I have a tin of it at home. I’ve never tried it cold steeped though.

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.
