From DAVIDsTEA

Simply sophisticated

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)

Ingredients: White Bai Mu Dan tea, coconut, natural vanilla flavouring, natural & artificial coconut flavouring*.

I realize this is a summer tea but I needed something white/low caffine and I only have a few to choose from. It is actually probably the best coconut tea I’ve had. It is straight up creamy coconut with the mild white base. Came out great hot and was nice to finish off when cool later on as well. Clear olive liquor that had a slight film on the top, presumably from the actual coconut flakes mixed in. Nothing too complicated about this blend, but if you are looking for a decent coconut, hopefully they will bring it back around another summer sometime.

I have too much old tea. Of course I still buy new tea anyway. Ugh. No more till it’s gone.

I had a sample packet of this so I took it to work, split it between two separate cups. I love coconut white teas, and this was no exception. Thankfully it was still good since I know coconut likes to go bad easily. I think the vacuum sealing helped over just like a ziplock.

Hopefully this one makes a comeback sometime because it was actually really good. It’s light, but still has creaminess to it from the coconut, though I think also the vanilla in here helps too. It was a lot like coconut water even though I had it hot both times.

Well, the Bluebird order will be worth the new tea anyway! I certainly shouldn’t order more, but I think Butiki will have to be the exception.

momo

Yeah, that doesn’t count since I had been wanting to order again since first trying their teas.

Butiki will probably happen for me too, it just has to wait a tad bit longer. I’m glad it’s more of a slow close.

tea-sipper

I’ve been planning a Bluebird order since I tried their teas too… I think at least 1 1/2 years ago.

This is my second favorite tea to drink iced during the hottest months (Bamboozled is my hands-down, absolute favorite). Clean, refreshing – great coconut flavor with not a lot else going on to detract from it. Nice and light. I’ve yet to try it hot and most likely won’t – really can’t see the point – it’s a great summer iced tea.

A sample from ashleyelizabeth! I completely forgot this was a white, so I reckon the water was a little hotter than it should have been when I added the leaves. Having said that, I couldn’t discern any notable effect on the tea, other than the white base being maybe just a little more prominent that it would otherwise have been.

I used 1.5 tsp of leaf, and water probably around 190. I gave it three minutes. The white buds are beautifully fuzzy, and there are quite long, thin strands of coconut scattered throughout. There are some darker leaves, too. Once brewed, the liquor is a pale yellow, which deepens slightly as it sits. There’s a slight oily residue on the surface of the cup, but nothing too terrible.

The flavour is pure coconut — it’s almost exactly like drinking coconut water, although with a creaminess from the vanilla. The white base adds quite a thick mouthfeel, and a slightly floral aftertaste, but I think that might be because I had the water too hot. I’ll let it cool more next time! For a first cup, on a hot summer Saturday, I found it very refreshing. It’s quite a light tea, and the coconut flavour is wonderfully tropical. I’ll enjoy experimenting with my next couple of cups! Many thanks to ashleyelizabeth for giving me the opportunity to try this one!

Wow… did I add milk to this?? I don’t remember doing that, and the color of the tea seems to indicate that I didn’t, but it sure tastes like I did! The mouthfeel is thick and creamy, too, which further reinforces it. The coconut is very present, but the vegetal nature of the green tea fills out the edges of the flavor, giving it depth. I have come to the conclusion that I LOVE coconut in tea, and this is subliminally coconut. Therefore, I find this utterly sublime!

1st steep: 2 minutes
2nd steep: 5-ish minutes? I kind of forgot about it… but it does not seem to have suffered because of it! Just as flavorful and coconutty. :3

I was recently sent a little of this with as an added bonus to a swap (thanks boychic!!) and I love love love it and hope to get my hands on some more in the near future! I have been trying lots of coconut teas here lately and so far this is one of my faves! Does anyone know if this is one that comes out every summer from Davids???!

boychik

Glad you like it.

The bag says to steep this at 92°C but I never quite manage to do that. Also my brain is wired for delicate teas at 80°. Anyway, an 80° steep works well for this blend. There’s a bit of an oil slick across the top of the tea but I blame all the delicious coconut on that!

I still haven’t gotten around to icing this one. I might even try a cold steep for once! Gotta get some sweet jars for cold brews. My latest obsession is the More Tea Tea Bottle so no doubt that’ll be in the fridge soon enough…

Of course I had to Google that bottle – very neat!

Memily

They’re taking presales currently, my email address is on the list! I’m sure between the multitude of USA tea companies there are a number of similar products but sometimes getting cool tea stuff down under is a challenge, plus I am way too easily excited…

Memily

Errr USA *and Canada :"|

Courtney

Haha! I wonder why it’s such a pain to get things there. Although, everything is easier to get in the US. Even as Canadians, right next door, we have problems. I’ve contemplated getting a post box right over the border at times.

Land of the free indeed…

hey whoa i have so many teas to post notes for!
i do grants management at a university and have been working on 2 multi million dollar grant proposals at the same time. it’s kinda like working on 16 smaller proposals at once.
and basically i’m swapped.
so not a lot of time for tea reviews.
but i’m having a great time! i love the challenge, the puzzle solving, the small friendly conversations with other admins located clear across the country, and the type type typing of little numbers into cumbersome 12 tab spreadsheets.
i’m probably speaking a foreign language to some of you.
and i’ll probably feel like this is too much of a real life vs internet life blend to keep it posted but i felt like talking about it so eh.
i arrive at work early. i stay late. i listen to music and listen to podcasts and drink tea the whole time i’m there. and lately i leave every day feeling accomplished and like i wish i could have a few more hours.
sometimes my job is a layered puzzle and sometimes it’s just a big sexy spreadsheet of data.
and it’s totally weird for a ‘creative type’ with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree to enjoy it as much as i do.
i am grateful everyday.

i am THRILLED that ashleyelizabeth could send me such a large quantity of this tea! it’s very generous of her and i wasn’t expecting it. makes it a great tea for brewing giant 24oz cups of it at my desk! (“greetings! this hiv research paperwork has been fueled by coconuts!”)
it’s a mellow tea and lately, perhaps because the quantity of tea i drink keeps increasing, i’ve really been enjoying and drawn to white teas even more than before. (psst i like this better than the coconut oolongs yes)
thanks again to ashleyelizabeth for sending me such a nice swap xo

OMGsrsly

LOL. You’re the type of person I’m in contact with ALL THE TIME, as I do all the budgeting and admin for a lab. “When did we get payment? Our letter says our payments should be this, did that happen? Where is our money? Do you want us to follow up on it or can you?”

Shmiracles

hahah!! ya know, i’ve seen you talk about lab stuff before! is it like an industry lab you work for? one of the proposals i’m working on has two FFRDCs included. (um wait maybe i’m speaking a foreign language again. idk.)

i work in engineering so it’s labs like microelectronics and pharmaceutical and mini nuclear reactors and biomaterials and my boyfriend is constantly disappointed to learn that i don’t ACTUALLY walk the halls alongside humanoid robots and holograms.

Shmiracles

oh duh you’re in CANADIA! you don’t have US Federally Funded Research and Development Centers. i’m a dork.

OMGsrsly

LOL! Yeah, that IS disappointing to learn you don’t actually walk the halls alongside humanoid robots and holograms. I mean, come ON science! Get it together! :D :D

It’s an academic research lab. And yes, in Canadia! The science is really interesting, but organizing and following up on all the paperwork can be terrible. Bureaucracy. Gah!

All this work definitely deserves another cup of tea. I wish it tasted just a good as it smells…however it’s a tad bitter and has a slight buttery taste but without any sort of tannin aftertaste. It has a really nice aroma though so it’ll get me through the rest of the morning!

This is such a fantastic tea. It’s rich and flavorful, and endlessly drinkable.

This is the second most coconut flavoured tea I have ever come across. It smacks of coconut. I love coconut. The only one better was David’s Tea’s Spring 2013 Coconut oolong. Which was so amazing. The Oolong was more fresh coconut, and Coconut grove is more toasted coconut.
Either way, both are fantastically delicious.
Coconut grove does have a strong coconut aftertaste. the flavor is a bit like coconut cereal… (How many times can I repeat the word coconut?).
I really like it though.
I really wish David’s would add some dried cherries and call it Toasted Macaroon…. OMG that sounds amazing

Today’s first cup I brewed at the recommended 92C, steeped for 3 minutes, which was long enough to get good flavor. My next couple of cups I didn’t bother with any preciseness, and with this tea, temperature doesn’t really matter, nor time. It comes out great, with no bitterness no matter what (Well I haven’t tried dumping it straight into boiling water).

My third re-brew tasted the same as the first, shockingly it was still just as coconutty.
Yum!
