Let me start by saying I love most anything coconut flavored. So, as any surprise, I’ve been eyeballing this tea for a while now. I finally received the sample package in the mail today with a few others and immediately opened this one. And what do I smell? Coconut, toasted coconut to be exact. I couldn’t quite put my finger on what exact kind of coconut it smelled like so I looked in the reviews and saw toasted coconut and coconut macaroons and they couldn’t be more correct. The wet leaves are large and dark green and smelled of pouchong more so than coconut but the taste was so well blended together. No one flavor overpowers the other, they are perfectly balanced. Nice smooth buttery notes from the pouchong mixed with sweet toasted coconut. Yum!
“There’s mystery to the art of finding and freeing the floral aroma and rich flavor of a pouchong tea. But the reasons Golden Moon’s Coconut Pouchong is noticeably better than others are pretty simple.
For one, we use the highest grade teas for the base for this flavored blend – large, deep green loose leaves – where normally leaves of such quality wouldn’t used. This makes a difference. And we derive our deep, natural coconut flavor from real coconut milk, instead of the artificial flavoring employed by most other blends.
The difference is real, present and unmistakable, and its why our Coconut Pouchong won “Best Tea” at the 2007 World Tea Expo."
