It makes me so sad that they discontinued this tea. I love the coconut and lemon with the soft white tea base. I hope they bring it back or at least something close. I guess the new blend of coconut oolong is pretty close…

A white Thai event
Thai cuisine is known for its bold flavours and unexpected combinations. And this fresh, sunny white tea blend is no exception. It combines delicate white tea with zingy lemongrass and lemon myrtle, creamy coconut and spicy-sweet ginger, for a taste that’s subtly exotic and addictively refreshing. It’s a guaranteed jolt of sunshine that’ll turn any ordinary day into a trip to the bustling markets of Bangkok or a lush island in the Andaman Sea. Go ahead – you deserve a vacation.
Ingredients: White tea, ginger, coconut, lemon myrtle, lemongrass, sunflowers, natural and artificial lemon, cream and coconut flavouring*.

Ever since I read that this is being discontinued, I’ve been meaning to give it a go. It also seemed to be the perfect thing after having Thai food for lunch. The only thing I was worried about was the coconut—not a favourite of mine. Well I need not have worried. The coconut notes in this are fresh and creamy and go fantastically with the lemon. This reminds me of having a cross between lemon meringue and coconut cream pie. Interested to see if this is good iced as well, as if so I may attempt to stock up before I lose my chance.
Flavors: Coconut, Lemon
This blend smells like a Thai coconut curry, and reminds me of a similar blend by Harney & Sons, the name of which escapes me at the moment. After steeping, a sweeter lemon note can be detected in the aroma as well. The taste of this tea is bright and light, with strong lemongrass and coconut flavors. There’s also a bite from the ginger pieces that I saw in the blend, giving it a gently spicy, warming effect. The white tea base is hard to detect under all this, but it does have a naturally sweet and tart quality. Overall, this tea does a good job on delivering on its name. I don’t often reach for teas with ginger or lemongrass, but once in a while I’m nicely surprised! Thanks beelicious for the sample!
(And finally, I have more teas that I have tried at least once in my cupboard than untried ones!)
This is an excellent tea as an alternative chai if you’ve gotten a bit burnt out on too much ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. This is a coconut lemon dream. No sugar, but still plenty sweet and flavorful. The lemon is delicate and natural, not like the cleaning-supply lemon that can happen if too much artificial flavoring is added. This is truly a reflection of the lemon myrtle and lemongrass. The lemongrass adds a more vanilla/lemon flavor, couple that with the buttery coconut and cream flavoring and this is like a lemon dessert. There’s just enough ginger to balance out the sweet with a little spice. A hidden gem on the white tea shelf at Davids Teas.
Flavors: Coconut, Cream, Ginger, Lemon, Lemongrass, Vanilla
I really enjoy this tea — the lemon and coconut come through well (especially the coconut), but I was sort of hoping it would have a bit more of a spicy kick to it. Never mind though, I’d still buy it again. Can’t wait to try it iced.
Another one I have to try again soon, but from my memory… this smelled like pie and tasted delicious. Coconut, lemon and a hint of ginger. Much more to my taste than Cocomint Cream (a lighter, less creamy tea, I think), and if it wasn’t so expensive, again it probably would have found a home on my tea shelf. As it stands for now, I’ll just have to get it in samples or use some frequent steeper points to get it.
Mmmm :) this tea smells so yummy! The flavor didn’t compare to the strong complex smell of the tea though. I shouldn’t have tried to brew this in my timolino trying it for the first time. I’ll be making more of this before work, I was going to make Forever Nuts which is hanging out in the storage compartment of my timolino but I think more of this would be better and I think I’ll add the 1/2tsp I have left of Super ginger to give it a little kick.
