From Zen Tea

A lightly floral and smooth Baozhong Oolong from Taiwan is perfectly blended with creamy coconut to make our Coconut Oolong. The cakery coconut flavour is amazing, and tea is a very smooth, rich, almost milky tea with a natural sweetness and subtle floral notes.
If you love coconut milk sweets and sophisticated oolongs, this is your tea.

I haven’t had this in a while and nearly forgot about. It’s fantastic.

ifjuly

Oooh, good to hear. Just last night I was pondering how much I’ve loved the coconut oolongs I’ve tried and checked my spreadsheet (tea dork!) and noticed I have one left to try, this one. Now I’m looking forward to it even more!

Fjellrev

It sure is!

This is another one from the limited selection of teas that I’ll drink a pot of. Floral notes, and coconut flakes are touching upon milky today. This is why this tea gets “permanent” status in my stash. It goes along perfectly with the lengthy “A Beautiful Mind” and some episodes of Downton Abbey (thanks, Cavo).

Glad you’re enjoying it!

I forgot this one was on my desk tonight, and I had the one from Soko. I’m putting that one on your list, CrowKettle. You should try it too.

Amariel

I had some last night, but I was in such a funk from the Wild Purple Buds Pu Erh, that it just tainted the whole taste of this one.

I’m finally getting down to this. I have some cold brewing in the fridge, but for now, I’ve only experienced this hot.

The dry leaf smells like milky, creamy coconut. Toasted coconut. My mom commented that it smells good enough to eat, like baked goods. Macaroons maybe?

The taste is quite pleasant. A little more floral than expected, but the coconut is there. I wouldn’t be surprised if the coconut comes out even more in the cold brew. I think I may prefer DT’s version though. It’s more coconutty. I’m a coconut fiend so I always appreciate more. I see it’s not on their site anymore but I wonder if some stores still carry it.

I’m watching International Househunters right now, and they’re showing Kongsberg, Norway! Love this show. It’s a wonderful way to see the world. Paired with this tea, it’s a relaxing morning.

I’ve seen a lot of tasting notes for coconut oolong in the Dashboard lately…

canadianadia

Oooh I love those Home and Garden shows, they really do pair nicely with tea

Yes, Zen Tea’s Coconut Oolong – we are together again! I could not resist adding you to my cart.

I dig the floral and the sweet coconuttyness in this tea! The oolong here is fantastic as well! YUM!

And I drank my entire pot really fast while I was working on my crochet blog and pattern sales.

those are super cute! I like the big eyes! I’ve done 1 knitted toy, a penguin off knitty, it didn’t come out so well. I haven’t mastered doing a tight gauge with knitting that I can pull off with crochet

Starfevre

Do you do cats?

Cavocorax

I love those! I should learn crochet! :o

Dinosara

Ah owls, so cute! Stephanie: did you make the pattern for those owls?

Tealizzy

So cute!!

Stephanie

Dinosara, yeah, I made up the owls! Never really wrote out a proper patter though. They sold well, but I just couldn’t get enough money for them to make it worth the time I put into them. They took 45 mins to make EACH plus materials and I couldn’t charge more than $5 each really because of how small they are!

Awkward Soul

@ starfevre – not yet, but I could probably modify one of my patterns to make a cat. On my list for patterns to create is a cat, though it has 6 legs or something (a D&D thing)

Flyawaybirdie

They’re soo cute!

I have been so SO pleased with my box of teas from Zen after their 50% off sale. There is only one tea in the box I don’t like (it’s not this one) and sadly I don’t have any swap money because I want it gone, but that’s a story for another time.

This tea is creamy, coconutty, astringent (not bitter) and a bit buttery. Definitely vegetal – super delicious. I make pots of it and always put the last pot in the fridge for iced tea. Yummy with a splash of coconut milk after a work out!

MissMylin

This sounds delicious! I must try some, after I clear through some tea in my tea cupboard.

this was a lovely surprise from one MissB.

okay…. i may have cheated a tad while i was opening the package. it referred to a ‘cake coconut’ flavour. really. honestly, i’ve heard claims like that before but i’ve never found one. i wouldn’t say that the vendor is necessarily trying to be deceitful… but everyone has a different palate and if you’re selling something then hope can get mixed in with flavouring.

truly that was NOT the case this time! it was a light, sweet, very mildly floral coconut cake flavour! the only better i’ve tasted is the blend stacy at butiki made for me personally!

another remarkable element of the tea is that it steeps up to such a brilliantly light colour….. many shades lighter than apple juice. lovely, light, pale, sweet yet somehow complicated cake coconut!

Fjellrev

This is definitely a nice one! I still miss David’s though. Theirs was even more coconutty.

JustJames

i like this one because of the balance…. coconut, but also toned down to a cupcake kindof level. (i also have to stay away from david’s for the most part)

Fjellrev

Ah yeah. Well this one definitely has a better balance. I’m just a coconut freak. But I’m glad you found one that works for you.

JustJames

i’m just not fun because of allergies….. you think i’m bad here? i walk into a restaurant and management walks out to greet me right off the bat, lol. i’m just glad there are some things i get to enjoy…. consider myself very fortunate.

yyz

I need to try this sometime. I love their coconut green tea, and I don’t really love coconut in tea.

TheTeaFairy

I like this one too but for some very weird reason, it tastes like butter popcorn more than it does coconut to me!!! Am I crazy?

JustJames

i think you’re absolutely certifiable…. but only in all my very favourite ways— like the ways that make you a passionate writer and the ways that allow you creatively coerce a doubting brother to drink beer tea, and tell us all about it lol!!! i got no hint of popcorn, myself…. cannot stand the stuff =0(. but just because i don’t taste it doesn’t mean i would call you crazy…. maybe i’m the crazy one! 80)

TheTeaFairy

James, you find me speechless :-) :-)

And so concludes four days of backlog! Yay! And it only took me about two hours to write everything out. Not so bad at all. It’ll be a relief when I get my computer back, though.

Anyway, I enjoyed a nice piping hot mug of this last night in celebration of our water being turned back on, and it was just absolutely lovely! Definitely made me want to get make a lot more coconut tea, which I very well might just do later this afternoon (I’m thinking Butiki’s Coconut Creme Pie). I think I want something heavily caffeinated right now, though. I had a miserable night’s sleep (being really sick doesn’t help at all) and am dreadfully sore.

Having been having conversations about coconut oolongs and all the different versions of it.
ifjuly sent me a couple that I didn’t really like – very green, very floral oolong with coconut. Those are her favorite types. I normally prefer the darker oolongs with coconut, and then TheTeaFairy sends me this (ok I also have more in my cupboard from my Zen tea order).
I’m really glad that I have more of this in my cupboard. For me this combines the best from both styles. This is greener than I normally like BUT there isn’t a hint of floral. YAY light oolong – no floral, add to that a really nice natural creamy coconut, and you end up with a really nice, light, well balance, naturally sweet, coconut oolong. I really like this. Top 3 coconut oolongs for sure.
Thank you TheTeaFairy for sending me some of this. :))

TheTeaFairy

Lol, maybe that,s what you needed in order to open your own stash!!!
Yay, really happy you liked this one. (So, no popcorn notes, eh??)

Dexter

Ummmm no popcorn – no butter, no salt, no nutty, nothing even vaguely popcorn….

TheTeaFairy

Lol, I knew there was so something wrong with me!!

Thank you Zen Tea for this lovely sample! A nice sized sample to boot!
I love coconut oolongs, pouchongs, etc when they are made well and this one sure is!
The coconut flavor is perfect and NOT artificial at all!
LOVELY oolong base tea!
Sweet and floral and vegetal and a wonderful after taste!
Look for a detailed review on http://sororiteasisters.com/ coming soon!

Getting back to my Zen Tea samples…this one I’ve been thinking about since I got it, for some reason I just never wanted it. Totally kicking myself over that.

There are plenty of coconut oolongs out there, but even after just one cup, I feel like this one is my favorite. I like that it is really reminiscent of coconut milk and cake. Can you imagine a tres leches cake made with coconut milk? Coconut milk, cream of coconut, and idk what else, maybe you’d be set for life with just dos leches cake with coconut. That’s what I think of this.

It’s sweet, buttery, creamy, cakey, and most importantly it tastes like coconut milk. It’s not super coconut tasting, which I like because the oolong still shines through.

This is another I will definitely have to give a try cold brewed, because it’ll probably be amazing.

Nik

Mouth…watering…

CrowKettle

That sounds amazing! How does this hold up to Golden Moon’s Coconut Pouchong? Probably an unfair question, but that’s the only coconut oolong I’ve tried and I’m out and really craving something similar :)
