I received a 25g bag of David’s coconut oolong in my Spring Collection sampler that I bought myself as a birthday gift. I opened all of the samplers to get a whiff, but this one I had to try immediately. The smell was intoxicating, with a heavy, almost floral coconut aroma, with hints of oolong right behind it. I set about brewing a heaping teaspoon of it in my new Perfect Tea mug, and brewed up the first steep.
I took a sip, and literally moaned out loud. This tea is absolutely amazing. It’s creamy, floral, even vegetal, all at once. These notes roll over the senses, first being the taste and smell of sweetened coconut, melting into creamy goodness. A pleasant floral note emerges, briefly. As the coconut washes away, the oolong comes out. All in all, this tea is incredibly well rounded, and is my new favorite. I’m not normally an oolong kind of girl, but this takes a high seat in my tea cupboard, and will absolutely be reordered when this sample is finished.
