My goodness. Making this one at home and it’s just as delicious!
Don’t add anything to this one. It doesn’t need it. Seriously.
Just awesome coconut goodness!

We all know coconuts are fun. Just think of a tiki cocktail with a little paper umbrella. Or the coconut shell bikini on a hula girl. But did you know the coconut can be seriously sophisticated too? Like when you pair it with premium Bai Mu Dan white tea – a naturally sweet, delicate leaf from Fujian Province in China. The result is subtle and fresh, with just a hint of creaminess. Looks like coconut’s all grown up. (MK Kosher)

I’m a coconut fiend so I obviously had to give this one a go.
The scent of this one reminds me of coconut cake. I definitely get a thick cake taste from this and I imagine if I added a sweetener, I’d also get a nice icing finish. I tend to do without sweeteners and this one is tasty enough without it.
I thought this tea would be my less favorite of the summer collection, but I’m surprised of how much I like it. I just bought a lot of it because it seems to help me get better when I’m feeling down. I don’t know what it is about this tea that is so amazing but I love it and I am very sad that it isn’t part of the permanent collection.
Received this quite some time ago with an order. Made a small mug because, those little sample pack don’t have enough for a regular me size mug.
First off, I love coconut flavoured anything. Although haven’t had much luck with them, except for one I received during the 12 days swap last Christmas.
This is gross, it tasted like sun bathing lotion. BARF! Although I love the smell of that stuff, it’s not something I wanted to taste!
I’m running out of teas to review! Need a DT run soon!!! Plus totally need more mint julep.
I love coconut as a flavour addition and as the real thing and imbued into teas. I made it iced AND hot. In the pouch this smells like coconut cream. The vanilla loves being in bed with the coconut they appear to be soulmates.Smells sweet and makes my mouth water. Reminds me of coconut cream pastries and I don’t know why but also something sexy like full body massages(?)
This beauty is about to get courted.hard.
Hot:The smell is definately more sensual and warm in the mug.Still sweet but more moody.
As for hot taste. It’s a cup of alright.Still sweet but it lost that sex appeal and just seems a coconut white tea. A pretty good one though. Let’s check it out iced.
Cold(iced): much better! The tea is at home on ice truly.the coconut is wow.the creaminess totally cool and sexy.. Reminds me of bikinis and umbrellas under a gold soaked sky.Toes burying into sand warm like toast.sticking a tiny blue umbrella in it for sure!
Doesn’t have the fruity of Tropicalia but is like the very adult need ID to get in version…drink!
Very refreshing. Very elegant. Very sexy and mature( without the lines)
Verdict: A summer staple white tea. Iced or die.Could see mixing it or adding booze. Lovely refreshing creamy and composed of the nicest Bai Mu Dan white tea leaves. Don’t think this is a fave yet…we need a few more clandestine meetings over the summer..this is the drink to sponsor affairs over the summer.
Oh how I love this one!
I love white tea to begin with and I love coconut. But to this day, I had not found any tea that had that creamy, soft, sugary aroma of coconut. This is it.
It has notes of vanilla to compliment the softness of the blend of white Bai Mu Dan tea and delicious coconut bits.
Really, really love this one!
How did I miss reviewing this?
Way back when it came out I picked up some of it, tried it, and dismissed it. Now however, this owl has developed a taste for coconut. The trick is purely in the steep time here. Not too little, not too long – otherwise it becomes bitter. Just the right amount of time and it becomes a smooth, sweet coconutty tea, even a bit of a buttery flavour. The vanilla is really noticeable in this one which I like, it blends lovely with coconut. Again, the only danger is over/understeeping, which seems to be why I don’t like any white teas – they’re a very tempermental steep for me. Maybe this is why Buddhas Blend was such a flop for me. Might have to revisit that tea as well, I really did want to like it.
Anyways, long live the coconut!
This was my favourite of David’s summer teas, but to me there wasn’t much competition. 3 of the teas were herbals which I don’t care for and mint julep was just not for me (I’m not a fan of mint unless it is paired with chocolate). This is my favourite coconut flavoured tea by far, it is so creamy and light. And this white tea isn’t as finicky as other white teas, I haven’t ruined any yet which says a lot because I ruin nearly half of the white tea I brew, either through too hot of water or over steeping.
A nice, creamy coconut tea. It smells like shredded coconut, but brews up to a golden yellow and the flavor of the tea itself develops and pairs well with the coconut. I mostly drank this hot, but the one time I had it chilled was delicious as well.
I’m not sure why David’s goes for the higher temperature brewing directions on their white teas, I’ve had better results with steeping in cooler water. Plus you get to drink it without burning your mouth faster!
As you may have guessed by my string of reviews, I am back in Canada and have made a trip to DAVIDs for the summer collection! Hello bliss!
Iced: Deliciously coconutty. I am loving all of the coconut in the summer collection! This one is basically all coconut, rounded out nicely by a gentle white base.
Hot: Yum, this definitely makes me thing of coconut macaroons! Fruity aftertaste is pleasant but a tad strange given the lack of fruit- must be the vanilla coconut combination! Light and easy summer sipping. I am usually not partial to whites but I really enjoy this blend and find it worth the money for a white! 2nd steep was just as delish!
