I tried this because I love Pouchongs, and I have a fondness for well-flavoured teas. The reviews on this tea were good and so I took a chance. It is a nice quality tea, and the coconut is not out of proportion to the tea, but I liked it less than I thought I would. I think I will enjoy it occasionally, but it would not be more than a single cup.
“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."
