Since I had such a good time with the Strawberry White last night, I decided to break into this one tonight.
I opened the package and suddenly have a whole new respect for this company. This is real rolled whole leaf oolong with coconut flakes. Most flavored oolongs don’t look like oolong, just broken pieces of something resembling tea.
As much as I’m impressed that they use a quality oolong, the problem is that it gets lost in the coconut. Don’t get me wrong, this is GOOD coconut but it’s a shame to obscure that oolong. I just wish it was more oolong, less coconut.
If you are a fan of really good coconut teas, you should try this. It is amazing in it’s sweet creamy goodness.
I’ve really enjoyed the Steep This! teas that I’ve tried, and would order from them again. They have nice quality, funky takes on classic flavors. I hope that they continue to come out with new flavors.

From Dexter3657, still more from that huge box she sent me! Thank you.

This is so funny because I sent Dex some bao zhong-based coconut oolongs (which I think is weird and don’t remember doing honestly; it doesn’t make sense I would given I know she doesn’t like bao zhongs) and the main takeaway was they were predictably too floral/green for her tastes. Meanwhile, I’m a FIEND for coconut oolongs that use a light, floral base. Haven’t met a single one I didn’t slurp up. Anyway, turns out this oolong is not green, it appears on the darker end of the spectrum, so it makes sense Dex likes it. Also explains why I wasn’t nuts for it—I was like, oh, the oolong is too dark tasting for me! Where are my gorgeous fresh green notes that I’ve come to associate with coconut oolong? Haha. We are like Jack Sprat and his wife here, but about the oolong spectrum and how it relates to coconut flavored tea.

That said, the darker oolong does give the finished tea a nuttier, roastier flavor which I think most would welcome. I just found myself missing those fresh green notes though. Now I get it! Knowing is half the battle. Thanks Dex!

Do you have a favorite coconut oolong? I’ve never had one and have been wondering where to start.

ifjuly

My favorites are Golden Moon’s Coconut Pouchong (the freshest of the 3 I like best so far, less creamy rich and more like fresh coconut water than cream), American Tea Room’s Coconut Oolong (very creamy and rich, but some of the people I’ve swapped with find it too floral), and Zen Tea’s Coconut Oolong (still creamy and rich like the ATR but a little fresher/zingier like the Golden Moon too…sort of the best of both).

ifjuly

But yeah, if you don’t like green or floral oolongs and prefer the toastier darker end of the spectrum (like Dexter3657!), you probably shouldn’t listen to me. Those 3 are all bao zhong/greener oolong based. You might dig this one if you like darker oolongs.

I love the greener oolongs and will definitely start with these three. That probably just saved me a few months and several misguided orders. Thank you!

ifjuly

No prob! I hope you enjoy them. (:

Thank you ifjuly (and Dexter3657) for letting me have a sample of this. This is a darker oolong, but I like that. It’s so green and rich, and the coconut tastes really natural and delicous.

I couldn’t tell you how this compares to the one from OMGsrsly but it’s up there. Very good.

(sipdown 192 – I’m currently on a mission to sipdown all those random little swap bags that are taking up room. Foil bags are a ok. Zips gotta go!)
