Wow, this sure is tasty tonight!
It’s a green, though, so it’s not something I’d ever really reach for.
Thanks for letting me try it, Sil!

“thank you kaylee! this is a fairly average green tea with coconut. It's not bad, but if i was going to drink a coconut tea, i'd probably stick with mango coconut from tea forte :) ” Read full tasting note

This is one of only three teas I actually purchased from the Coffee & Tea Festival. I enjoyed the sample because it was delicately sweet and the coconut flavor wasn’t overwhelming.
Dry, the tea smells sweet, like apple Jolly Ranchers, with a hint of coconut. The package didn’t include steeping directions, so I used nearly boiling water and tasted it at three steeping intervals – 3 minutes, 5 minutes, and 8 minutes. At 3 minutes, it was sweet but very weak. At 5 minutes, it was stronger but still very sweet. It basically smells and tastes like a Jolly Rancher. At 8 minutes, the green tea flavor came out more. At that point I gave up timing and just drank the tea, leaving the teabag in. It gets better the longer it steeps, but there’s never really any complexity to this tea. It might be good as an iced tea (no sweetener needed) or instead of dessert. Overall, I am not impressed. I don’t know why I liked it more at the tea festival than I do now, but I wouldn’t buy it again at this price point ($10 for 18 sachets, though the content of the sachets is the same quality as loose leaf).
This doesn’t resteep well. The flavor is better – much less sweet – but it is very weak.
Wow. What a perfect tea for a hot summer day. The coconut added sweetness (but not too sweet!) that made me feel as though I was whisked away to a tropical island. I like that the integrity of the green tea was maintained by the subtlety of the coconut. A must-try for anyone dealing with Summer temperatures right now!
