Cold-brewed this one overnight and enjoyed it this morning. Delicious! Sweet, buttery and tastes like wonderful, lovely coconut. No complaints.

I am very much in the mood for this kind of tea right now… something milky and creamy. I am really trying to drink more of the tea I have in my collection before buying any more. I’m making progress, but it’s slow progress. I always find that I crave other teas than the ones on my shelves. Anyway, about this cup…
The scent of the brewed cup is wonderful! I detect whipped cream, coconut (of course), a bit of buttery oolong and something like vanilla ice cream. I’m hoping that the scent translates into the taste because I would rate this tea a 95 based on scent alone!
Sipping… not really tasting whipped cream or vanilla.. but more of a green oolong with coconut. I suppose that I expected this, but the scent fooled me into believing that there would be something in addition to the coconut. The first part of the sip is of a very green oolong and then the coconut notes come out. As the cup cools, more of the oolong’s buttery notes appear and the cup becomes more silky.
This is a very solid cup and I think it would be very tasty iced. When it gets warmer, I’ll try an iced version. Thank you, Lindsey for a sample of this tea!
If you like coconut, you’ll LOVE this tea. The coconut flavor is strong and sweet – like a tropical vacation. The strong oolong base doesn’t mask or hinder the coconut flavor. On the flip side, the coconut is overpowering but the oolong base holds its own. Overall this is a great tea, naturally sweet and abundantly fragrant. Delish!
I thought I’d use up the last bit of this that I have left… now I have to go get more.
This is the first oolong I’ve ever ventured to try. I really love the smooth buttery taste of this tea. The coconut tastes very natural as well, and I adore coconut flavor so much. It’s like liquid Almond Joy, but way, way less sickly sweet and fake. I’m kind of obsessed… :)
I never tried it with milk, but come to think of it, it probably* works very well with milk… probably.
I’d love to try other oolongs, but so far this has given me a very good impression of oolongs on the whole.
Two bags of this followed me home from Sarasota Florida thanks to a Groupon. It kinda irked me that I had a $15 Groupon and everything in that store was $4.79, but that just meant I had to buy more tea.
This smelled soooooo good that I just had to get 2 bags. I’ve been looking for a good coconut tea and was hoping this would be it. Sadly, it’s not, but that’s probably a good thing since I live in IL.
This is a good tea, just not enough coconut flavor for me. It’s there, don’t get me wrong, but it’s a little too subtle for my tastes. What I really want is a good coconut black tea as I tend to find that they’re a little bit bolder. I might try a little higher temp (my kettle has oolong at 190 instead of 195 with the next setting being 200) next time to see if I get more punch from the coconut.
I’ve never really considered myself a fan of coconut, but for some reason it has become somewhat of an obsession recently. I knew after smelling the Coconut Oolong I had to have some. The coconut is strong and creamy, definitely something you get on the inhale and exhale as you drink. There is a slight bitterness to the tea, but I found that to be gone on the second steeping. As a note, on the second steeping definitely let it steep longer than the first, and taste test it for flavor. What you’re left with is intense, super creamy coconut and yummy oolong and absolutely no bitter taste. I ended up chilling it and it was incredible on a super hot summer day.
This is THE tea that I can’t live without. I can get two great steepings from it, which makes it an even better value. The Bao Zhong base perfectly complements the coconut flavor. It’s truly a delightful mix of fruit and floral flavors. I’ve only tried it hot. It might make a nice iced tea, but I have to wait until it’s much warmer to try it out.
