ZOMG I am typing this on my very first iPad. My laptop’s HD went kaput and the techs have had it for days now. My mom encouraged me to get one and reassured me that I’m worth it since I did well in school. Aww. Plus no more lugging around a 15" for presentations!

Anyway, everyone here probably knows by now that I am crazy for coconut. I was super sad that I didn’t get more of their coconut oolong before it went away but this came into our lives!

Flavoured white teas are very hit or miss, but the dry leaf smells like a more down to earth, less sweet coconut, comparing this to the oolong, at least. I can pretty much say the same about the flavour too. The base doesn’t fight with the coconut, and allows that yummy coconut awesomeness to shine through. This is without a word more akin to fresh coconut.

I only tried this hot since I can’t justify icing a white (and I pretty much always cold steep so you could imagine how expensive cold steeping this could get). But I’m sure this would make a lovely iced tea.

It’s hard to choose between this and the oolong though. Don’t make me choose!

I like this one cooler better. I find it is a mix of Coconut Oolong and Vanilla Orchid Oolong.
