At last, DT’s rendition of a coconut oolong. I appreciate how the dry leaf smells like actual coconut. Not artificial at all, and I can tell already that it’s going to be creamy. Coconut milk oolong, anyone?
The first steep was slightly floral with milky undertones. When I first tried this yesterday, I was a little unsure about it. The coconut seemed out of place for some reason. The second steep was better, creamier, and the coconut, warmer.
The second round this afternoon is much better. Again, the first steep is a little floral, a little milky, and the coconut is like true coconut shavings, slightly sweetened. The second steep is super heavenly. Coconut milky and buttery.
I’m loving that paradoxically dainty and rich oolong aroma paired with coconut.
