This is a good coconut tea. It tastes like the sweetened coconut you get in the baking aisle. I prefer toasted coconut flavor, or coconut flavor. It’s slightly sweet, better warm than iced. It’s good naked!

Even in the coldest chill of winter, the refreshing Coconut tea will imbue your cup with a taste of summer in the tropics. Combining the flavor of fresh coconuts with bright Ceylon black tea, you will have to fight the urge to wear your grass skirt out in public.

This tea does not taste of coconut as much as it smells of coconut. There is still a decent coconut flavor, but it could be stronger. It doesn’t taste tropical to me, more of a baked goods type flavor. This did make me crave coconut, so I am now on the lookout for more coconut teas. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
I had read the reviews for this tea in the Adagio Teas website and was quite anxious to taste it. The taste of coconut was not as strong as I thought it would be but it was quite nice. This is a tea that I would recommend drinking while still hot because it doesn’t taste as good when cooled down.
What you can expect is a very dominant black tea taste with fresh coconut taste (not so much toasted coconut). I do think the coconut taste could be stronger but perhaps that is just me.
Along with this tea I ordered hazelnut and cream because I heard they were good mixed with this tea. Hazelnut and coconut went together nicely but coconut and cream was a disappointment, mostly because the cream tea was not of my liking. I would like to know if perhaps other mixes can bring out the coconut flavour a bit more.
All in all, this tea is definitely worth trying if you like black tea.
