Received a little sample packet of this with my last order. And I’m glad I did! The dry leaf smell is amazing: toasted coconut and… butter? Yes, definitely picking up on a buttery scent – a little bit like popcorn.
Steeped, the smell is just as heavenly, only now that toasted coconut seems to just be fresh coconut. Mmmm, this reminds me of suntan lotion and the beach and warm sunny days; so good!
Taste is wonderfully smooth and buttery with a little sweet, tropical note from the coconut. The oolong presents as mildly vegetal, but in a way that works surprisingly well with the coconut. More of buttery, toasty vegetal than a “I just steamed up some spinach in this water” taste. Very well done.
This just may go on the shopping list!
ETA: Everyone was right; the second steep is amazing.
