Sounds yummy

It is. I’ll be glad to send on the rest of my sample to you, if you like.

Glad you enjoyed it. That’s my little local tea room I hang out at occasionally :)

cool! I already bookmarked the site for samples. My local equivalent company is primarily about coffee (they have some great blends) but offers some basic teas too.

T.C.

They are really cool…it’s a literal tea bar (you pull up a stool to the bar) that only serves tea. They have a million kinds (some not even listed on menu) and they will happily mix you anything you want if you got a specialty you like.

That would be fantastic!

Delicious. Incredibly tasty tea, and a new favorite. This is only my second oolong (gasp), but I’m already finding myself taken in by the flavor, and the coconut in this tea is very noticeable and creamy. The nice, slightly astringent, feel of the oolong is making this almost a competitive morning tea (FLAVOR!), and I’m loving it.

When I looked at the liquor once it was done steeping, I nearly scoffed that this could taste like anything, it was so delicately yellow, how could it have infused any flavor? How glad I am to be wrong. I won’t doubt another oolong strange mystical powers…

1.5 teaspoons in 8 oz. of water.

Oh, and I almost forgot! Thank you T.C.!

I only have one tsp left of this after I finish drinking this cup. Makes me sad because I LOVE this one! Must savor it…

this tea is considered a pouchong, which I had never heard of before this summer. I wandered into a cafe in Seward, Alaska where they carried a coconut pouchong, and I was hooked. Months later I wander into the Mad Hat Tea Company in Tacoma, Washington where the owner gives me a generous sample.
“So what do you think? Are you floating?”
Boy, was I. Could it have had to go with a warm shop and hot tea? Perhaps, but “floating” was the perfect was to describe how I felt. It’s a light tea with a strong coconut flavor that is perfect for any time of day, any occasion. I went through the bag in about a month and a half and was happy to make the trek back to Tacoma (I live in Olympia) to get it. Now I’m sitting with the first cup from a new bag, floating.

Great everyday tea. Well balanced coconut, oolong with floral and earthy notes.

Gave this a try today at the shop, and was pleasantly surprised. Smells/tastes buttery if that makes sense. Smooth & rich I suppose I’d describe it as.
