I have been looking forward to trying this one, as it gets such rave reviews. I don’t think I’ve had particularly many flavored oolongs, either. My first thought was indeed that it tastes like a coconut cookie- the oolong lends the tea a slight hint of ‘something baked’, almost a toasty taste. The coconut is really mild, and thankfully not at all greasy (I’ve seen coconut teas that drip with coconut oil). It’s a really pleasant brew to have mid-morning, and unique as far as flavored teas go. I can imagine this so deliciously paired with tea biscuits. I may have to get my hands on more of this, or- to tide me over, I might just have to re-steep the sample Kristin sent me.
