OK I’m redoing by previous review of this tea because it really didn’t do the drink justice. This is the smoothest green tea I’ve ever had. I’ve only tried it hot, but that’s mainly because it has so much versatility that way. It works as a substitute for hot chocolate while cuddled in front of a fire, relaxing with a good book, and enjoying a calm moment on a spring day.
I’ve done the whole proper tea etiquette thing where I take the leaves out after a few minutes, and resteep it so I can get about three cups out of it and still get decent taste.
My favourite feature of this tea however is that I can take the lazy way out (and my personal favourite) and just throw a teaspoon of the leaves into my Teaopia 16oz travel tea thermos (the type where there’s an insertable strainer between the drinking spout and the brew) and let the leave just sit in the tea as I drink. A lot of teas will go super bitter this way, but not this one. And I can still refill my travel mug for a second steeping.
Despite my love of this tea I should mention that it’s not really coconut flavoured, it tastes like almonds. Which makes sense when you consider that it’s flavoured with almonds, I don’t mind but anyone really craving coconut might.
This tea has a permanent spot on my “never let myself run of this” list.
