The rich flavors of Thailand are the inspiration for this tasty blend. It is a combination of green tea, lemongrass, coconut and ginger.

Well, I can see where this tea got its name. It smells exactly like coconut curry, which is a bit off-putting. The taste is almost totally dominated by lemongrass with maybe a hint of coconut at the end? Or maybe that’s just a placebo effect because I knew it was supposed to have coconut in it. My neighbor raved about this and gave me a sachet to try but my feelings are just meh about this. It tastes like Aveda smells.
UPDATE: 4 sips in and I hate it more with every sip. Definitely not finishing it.
I swear I have reviewed this tea, but Steepster is saying I haven’t. I don’t even know.
Anyway, I was writing this to add to my previous review – which I can’t find and might re-do, I guess.
I just wanted to add that this is delicious iced, sweetened, and with milk. The creaminess the milk adds goes really well with the coconut flavor. It reminds me of bubble tea, but without the tapioca pearls. Delicious!
However, I recommend drinking it this way out of an opaque cup. It looks… foul. It’s off-white, faintly yellowish, and cloudy. It looks like… something I’m not gonna name. ANYWAY.
Flavors: Coconut, Lemongrass
This is the last of my 7 oz. tin :( It died in the noble cause of getting me through the holiday pie baking marathon. I really need to replenish all my H&S teas ASAP, but what do you know, Paris and SoHo are both out of stock on the H&S site, and I can’t place an order without them. I just know H&S is going to have some fabulous black Friday sale, but it will be pointless because no Paris.
Thank you Courtney for sharing this with me! I know it is one of your favorites so I was very excited to try this out and I can definitely see why you like it. It is quite tropical and delicious. Sweet coconut and vanilla with a great hint of ginger to round everything out. Plus, I am getting grassy notes from the base that are actually making the taste better as opposed to worse.
I don’t know if I would stock up on this but I certainly would not turn down another cup. And I have 24 oz to enjoy right now that I am happily sipping away at while I watch Bones.
Flavors: Coconut, Grass, Vanilla
I got a free sample of this with my last Harney & Sons order. It smells much sweeter dry than it is brewed, and it’s much mellower than I was expecting from the description, but it’s pleasant.
I mostly taste coconut and green tea, and the lemongrass gives it a slightly grassy, almost savory aftertaste. I don’t get any ginger from it at all. It’s an interesting one to try, but I’m not sure I would buy it. I’d like the flavors to be a little bolder, or for something else to be added to it to round it out better.
So I’ve been on a bit of a quest. I get free coffee/tea at work and have been enjoying Tazo Green Ginger teabags. Thought I would try to find a higher quality loose leaf for home use. Since I do like coconut, I thought I would give this a try. Not bad at all, but the subtitle should be “Wheres The Ginger”. It has a very nice high quality green base, and the coconut is nicely balanced, but the ginger does not show up to the party. The quest continues…
I prefer black teas to green most of the time, but this blend makes a green tea that I can enjoy a great deal. I originally tried it when I ordered a Harney sampler sachet pack, and liked it so much that I ordered a 4oz tin. The prominent tastes of lemongrass and coconut are complemented by a hint of ginger at the end of each sip. The green tea base isn’t too grassy or vegetal, but still has a distinctive taste among the other ingredients. I’m drinking this tea hot at the moment, but I love it as an iced tea as well. As others have pointed out, it would go fabulously with the Asian foods that share similar flavor profiles.
