this tea is considered a pouchong, which I had never heard of before this summer. I wandered into a cafe in Seward, Alaska where they carried a coconut pouchong, and I was hooked. Months later I wander into the Mad Hat Tea Company in Tacoma, Washington where the owner gives me a generous sample.
“So what do you think? Are you floating?”
Boy, was I. Could it have had to go with a warm shop and hot tea? Perhaps, but “floating” was the perfect was to describe how I felt. It’s a light tea with a strong coconut flavor that is perfect for any time of day, any occasion. I went through the bag in about a month and a half and was happy to make the trek back to Tacoma (I live in Olympia) to get it. Now I’m sitting with the first cup from a new bag, floating.
