Ah-amazing. As a lover of all things coconut anyway, this smooth fragrant tea totally made my day.

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.
It’s really difficult to beat Golden Moon’s Coconut Oolong. This is the closest to being as good, but still, not there. There’s suppose to be pineapple in the blend, but I don’t taste much of it. The coconut flavor reminds me more of coconut water than the meat itself. I prefer a toasted coconut taste if I have to pick. This makes for an excellent iced tea.
Tea #2 from Considering a new TTB
This is one of those teas that make your house smell wonderful while it steeps. As soon as the water hit the dry leaf I was met with the strong scent of coconut. While the coconut does end up being the main flavor of the tea, the floral flavors of the oolong peak through a bit once the tea starts to cool. Overall this was a nice tea to start my day off with, but not one that I would order for myself, I thought it was a little bit sweet for my tastes.
This tea— milky, creamy, smooth, light, subtle— is to me what I’d imagine sunlight to taste like on an Island morning. I am not even joking. Nope. No exaggeration here. Literally, it is that good. A wonderful representation of a scented Pouchong! A world-class ambassador for flavored teas.
Mmm! I love the coconut! The tea has a light perfumey background, and a slightly creamy texture. The smell is amazing! I love this as a desert tea, or when I just want to relax. Very soothing. I always want more of it. I will probably order more. I prepared it gongfu style, with a gaiwan.
