Another GM sampler~ I’m not really that familiar with pouchong, but I’ve been saving trying this tea for a while. The tea from the sampler smelled overwhelmingly of coconut. Coconut and I have a love hate relationship. Mainly hate, rarely love. Now it is sitting next to me and i can smell more of the pouchong flavor as well.
First sip, nice. not really tasting much of a coconut flavor actually though. The coconut flavor might be there a tiny bit, and i’m getting some sweet undertones from the pouchong but the flavor is mainly focused on the pouchong. This is especially surprising considering how potent the leaves were before brewing. There is a sort of buttery/milky aftertaste which i’m assuming is from the coconut.
