What’s in it
Chinese sencha green tea, coconut and natural flavouring.
How it tastes to us
The tropical taste of coconut and the ocean-like flavour of sencha meet in this tea. The body is enhanced by the coconut, which makes it deliciously creamy. It has a balanced acidity that makes your mouth water. The chinese sencha brings hints of seaweed and mineral notes. With such a lengthy coconut finish, you can really savour this one.
Why we chose it
To showcase that simple flavoured teas can be delicious too. You don’t always have to have a million ingredients.
How we steep it
Like all green teas – careful with the temperature. Steeping with water that is too hot can draw out unwanted bitterness and astringency
When we drink it
Weekend afternoons with friends.
Why we like Spire
Spire Tea is an importer who has made this tasty tea blend available to those of us here in Canada. We mainly stick to tea companies that also sell direct to you, but one of our objectives is to introduce you to teas you would have a tough time finding on your own. That’s why we couldn’t pass up this tea. Spire has a custom blending facility in Argentina and has a team of certified tea sommeliers who have created a great line up of organic, fair trade and rainforest alliance certified teas.
