I am not usually a fan of coconut, but I do love myself a coconut cream pie. And sweetened, that’s exactly what this tea gives me. It’s mellow and creamy and delightful. Without the sugar I do find that the coconut is more of an undertone than in prominence, but then the sugar is added and this is just perfect for me. I’m glad my friend send me this one to try!

Fantastic Oolong, excellent coconut taste. It steeps up light in color but the taste makes up for it. This tea really tastes of coconut.

God, this was tasty. It was a very nice earthy oolong, not too floral, and the coconut added a sweet note to it without taking over. I was expecting more of a coconut tea with an oolong kicker, but it was the other way around, which is awesome. This was just delicious. I wish I had more!

Another one of their new teas. Whereas this Oolong is a great Oolong the Coconut isn’t very noticeable.

I was surprised to find a place that served loose leaf tea at La Guardia airport, so of coursee I had to try the place out. Worldbean carries a small but nice variety of Rishi teas. I really liked the sceent of the liquor of this tea, which was a nice, creamy coconut. The oolong base was not the best I’ve had, but still a fairly smooth and creamy oolong with lots of fresh, light green undertones. Not bad for an airport!

Mmm, so much love. This was a big hit with my coworkers when I brought it in today. The dry leaves smell very richly of buttered popcorn, buttered popcorn jelly bellies to be exact. In fact, it smells just like the time my fiancé toasted pieces of fresh coconut flesh and ate them with caramel drizzle. Once you cook the flesh, it takes on this really incredible nutty, buttery flavor.

I was a little surprised at how light the coconut flavor in the tea actually was once I steeped it, but I appreciate that it wasn’t too strong and artificial. This definitely doesn’t taste like any sort of fake coconut candy, it’s nutty, buttery, and ever so slightly sweet. The buttery-ness is a fantastic complement for this oolong. I like the thin, light body in spite of the rich flavor. I had a vanilla scone with the second steep, which was a great complement. The richness of the vanilla brought out the almost savory popcorn flavor of the tea. By the 3rd steep, the toasty flavor of the coconut was starting to become even more subtle and it seemed more like an unflavored oolong (but still tasty as hell), a little more vegetal, not quite as sweet, but still nutty.

I shared 4 steeps with my coworkers, and they all enjoyed it as well. :)

This is the tea that really got me into oolongs. The coconut smells a lot stronger than it actually tastes. It is very smooth, a perfect afternoon tea. Light and gentle on the stomach, not too much caffeine. I will definitely be getting more of this in the future!

This is by far my favorite tea from Rishi Tea. It is heavenly tasting! The Bao Zhong used is good quality and the toasted coconut flavor is perfect. The coconut does not overwhelm the flowery notes from the Bao Zhong.

You can steep this a number of times (3-4). I think this tea tastes best chilled but it’s also lovely hot.

Dry, the tea smells strongly of coconut. Steeped, it tastes lightly of coconut rice. It has a starchy back ground and sweetness to it that is rice like. The oolong is okay, slightly floral, but nothing too exciting. I’d reach for this out of a selection of Rishi, but it would be one of my last picks if I was choosing from my cupboard.
