My first Coconut Oolong in ages!! and oh man is it ever good. Well, mostly. A little too sweet for my liking, and I added no sugar.
First steep was 90s, second at 2min or so (maybe a few extra seconds)
I can taste the oolong, barely… and the coconut is very present. Did they add sweetener, or is that just the coconut? hmmm. Coconut cream! yes that is what I taste.
It’s pretty smooth as well. In this second steep, I don’t think it’s weaker at all. Hoping the third will bring around more lovely oolong.
Also, Raritea I hope you enjoy it! we bought 50g and shared it between us. Can’t wait to go back there :)

EDIT: 3rd steep was seriously lacking. It had some odd grassy/floral note that threw me off. More caramel than coconut. Lowering the rating one point! because I don’t make it past two steeps that often anyhow.

Thanks again to Raritea for a sample of this one! (Also, sipdown!)

I’ve become lazy in my tea comparisons, and have difficulty discerning different teas apart when they’re quite similar. This is no exception. However, I’m starting to think that all coconut oolongs, which suspiciously all have pouchong bases are one and the same. Yep, don’t care where it’s from, I think they’re all the same! Just different freshness(es), and storage, etc. etc. I could be wrong, but……

Either way, this is yummy as all the other ones have been. I love the toasty coconut flavour atop the pouchong base. Tonight it’s not quite hitting the spot though, possibly because I’m craving sweets like crazy right now, and one thing that this tea isn’t, is sweet. Oh well, I have a few more infusions of it to get through tomorrow, because if it’s like/the same as the others, the coconut flavour will last FOREVER!

I was starting to wonder about the coconut pouchong thing too.

Kittenna

Yeah. I mean, what are the odds that EVERY company had the same idea that coconut oolong must be pouchongs. Or even, what are the odds that they all independently copied one another. Pretty low. It’s possible that there is more than one version out there, but in my head, they all meld together.

whatshesaid

Where are you getting ‘pouchong’ from? Honestly I’m still new enough that I don’t know what that is, but my bag says “pao zhong” – same thing?? I am trying to cram my head with tea knowledge :)

Kittenna

Yeah, same thing. Apparently it’s something to do with different ways of translating Chinese to English, so you end up with different words, which to a newbie, is very confusing! Pouchong = pao zhong = bao zhong. Tieguanyin = tiekuanyin, dong ting = tung ting, etc.

whatshesaid

Wow, thanks for that! I suspect it would have taken me a long time to figure it all out.

Cavocorax

Woah! Thanks for clearing that up. I wondered if DavidsTea and Zen Tea were using the same base tea – sounds like they are!

Kittenna

Yeah. I had initially thought that more companies made all of their own blends, but it seems I’m wrong.

Pia M

Has anyone had the Coconut Oolong from The Spice & Tea Exchange? I was wondering if these other oolongs taste similar…?

Kittenna

Unfortunately that, I cannot tell you :( I don’t think I’ve had that one. My suspicion is though, that if it’s a pouchong with coconut flavour, it probably is similar if not the same.

Indigobloom

I’ve had it, and I’m not sure if it was a pouchong, I don’t think it was but then that was so long ago… though it was my absolute fave tea for quite a while! before I got turned off coconut!

1.5 tablespoons for 375 ml of water

The aroma of the brewed tea is incredible. The primary scent is that of a creamy and very authentic coconut. There is a floral note in the background.

The beginning of the sip is a little bland but has coconut water undertone. Flavour blooms into full coconut near the middle of the sip. Amazingly authentic coconut flavour. I’m getting a mild creaminess near the end of the sip. The oolong taste is apparent in the background. The oolong and coconut flavours compliment each other very well and meld together the most near the end of the sip. I’m tasting a hint of the grapefuity taste I tend to associate with oolongs on the exhale of the aftertaste.

Second infusion at 3.5 minutes. The sweetness is subdued but the coconut flavour is still very present. Still getting a good coconut milk flavour. Slight tangy-ness. The oolong taste is able to come through more. The oolon is mildly floral and has a flat blandness to it that reminds me of a waxy taste. Still a pleasing experience.

Third infusion at 4.25 minutes. Slight creaminess still present. Coconut water flavour present.

Fourth infusion at 4.75 minutes is quite bland and flavourless. Very watery.

Thanks Indigobloom for sharing this tea purchase with me!
