Just got a bag of this from the greatest person in the world so I’m giving it a shot. The loose leaf has a rich, deep, and earthy coconut aroma. Not like regular processed coconut, but one that you’ve found on the beach and cracked open raw. Every now and then you’ll catch a little glimpse of the fruity aroma coming through, but the coconut remains dominant. This makes sense because it appears that the slivers of mango in the loose leaf are far outnumbered by those of the coconut and black tea.

The liquor is a rich golden brown and has the same earthy coconut aroma as the leaves. The coconut carries through the aroma and into the flavor quite strongly. It is supported by a quality black tea flavor but still maintains the spotlight. You get hints of mango every now and then, but I would consider this mostly a coconut flavored tea (which I’ve had before and really liked). Lingering after the liquid is gone is the coconut flavor, which has taken on an almost malty chocolaty taste, very interesting. Overall, an enjoyable experience. Besides for the lingering coconut flavor, I’d say this is one of more consistent teas I’ve had, from aroma of the loose leaf all the way through to the last sip. Good stuff.

I really like oolongs but I’m open to pretty much anything (although I’m still hesitant of pu-erh). Either way, any tea that expands my tastes, teaches me something, or promotes a love of tea is a winner in my book. If you have any questions, shoot an email to [email protected] or PM me.
