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.

OK, now I know what people mean when they say a tea is buttery! I love coconut so I kinda had to buy this tea. (AND cavocorax sent me a sample but I ended up buying my own before it got here.. haha.) But I think if I had waited I wouldn’t have bought this. Not yet, anyway. The smell of oolong (?) is nauseating. :s I really didn’t want to try this tea once smelling it after steeping! I put it down and learned some crochet and forgot about til just now… but it’s better than it smells, for sure! I …actually like it. SURPRISED. But the smell is still turning my stomach, so I don’t know how eager I’ll be to make this again. Holding off rating for now, maybe oolong just isn’t for me? Will have to do a plain one soon to compare (since the long life oolong from David’s Tea also went so horribly wrong for me – although I was WAY more careful about temperature and steep time for this one)…. #adventuresinteatime

I love overusing the word, “buttery”… XD
Oolong does have a “unique” smell. I think I forced myself to appreciate it when I decided to buy a 100g tin of DT’s milk oolong(my first oolong). I think I told myself that the beautiful expanding leaves were worth it but it took a while to grow acclimatized.. :/

Cavocorax

I think this was one of my first oolongs, and for whatever reason, it was love at first sip! I didn’t mind the oolongy smell because it reminded me of grassy green teas, but with.. something extra?

Glad you got it down, but if you find you don’t like it after all, I could maybe do a swap with you? (Since I was the one who got you excited about it)

I will also relieve you of some of it if it causes you great distress.. ;)

Ozli

Hahaha you guys are the best!! I will keep that in mind :D

A big THANK YOU to Zen Tea for this delicious sample. It’s so smooth and the coconut flavor is like drinking milk from a fresh coconut. The oolong is mild and allows the coconut to really shine. This is a tea I want to have around at all times. Looking forward to re-steeping it for another yummy cup! Hoping it motivates me to get my much needed house cleaning done.

The second steeping tastes as amazing as the first! Very impressed. It could be an all day tea :)

I really liked this tea too :)

Thank you to Zen Tea for the nice sized sample!

I’m no oolong expert, but this oolong is very nice. I haven’t had too many other coconut flavored oolongs, but this does compare to Mandarin Silk from Persimmon Tree Tea.

This flavor is smooth, very rich, and definitely coconut-y, but not overly so. This is a great oolong for people, like me, who might be a little underwhelmed with oolongs and want a little kick. It’s still a delicious treat even without any sweetener in it!

This is pretty good! Very much like Golden Moon’s Coconut Pouchong, although it tastes a little more “flavoured”. Basically, you can taste the delicious pouchong base with toasty notes of coconut and as it says in the description, a nice hit of floral from the base tea as well. IMO it’s a bit less subtle than Coconut Pouchong, but perhaps I used more leaf here. My mom likes coconut pouchong (but I didn’t really want to leave my whole package here), and she seems to like this one as well, so I’m leaving the rest of my pouch here.

Thanks to Zen Tea for this sample! It’s nice to know that I can get a good coconut oolong from a Canadian company!

My samples from Zen Tea came in yesterday, and man do they all smell good! I have two cold brews to try today, with this one being first. I was the most excited about this one, I even asked for the Green Coconut as well to compare the two. GMT’s Coconut Pouchong is one of my favorite teas, and I was hoping this one would be similar since they have the same base & flavoring combo.

The coconut flavor here is SO good! Kind of toasty bake-y, but also with some fresh coconut sweetness. It’s a nice combo, and really natural tasting. Fake coconut is… blargh, reminds me of suntan lotion, but thankfully this tea doesn’t remind me of a day at the beach. Well, maybe a tropical beach, sitting on a little foldy chair while sipping a drink from a coconut. Mm yeah, this is a vacation drink for sure! Some teas really transport you by association, kind of a mental vacation. And this, well, it’s so relaxing and refreshing, makes me feel like it’s still summer.

The Bao Zhong is lovely too, lightly floral and a little creamy. A perfect compliment to the succulent coconut! This obviously reminds me a LOT of GMT’s Coconut Pouchong, in fact I like it just as much. Coconut + oolong is a winning combination for sure!

Mmm… I’m actually not a huge fan of coconut. But I really liked GMT’s Coconut Pouchong, so this sounds yummy!

My first sip of this tea is creamy, milky coconut. Yum! It’s absolutely delicious! The sip quickly fades into that sour note that coconut sometimes lends to a tea. As it cools, it still remains milky, but becomes greener and more of the floral oolong notes come out. This is definitely a tasty tea, but I have to be in the mood for it. As this isn’t just a milky oolong, but a coconut one, I really have to want coconut for this to be a good cup.

This one has me baffled. I love coconut. I love oolong. I love coconut and oolong together. I just don’t much care for this one. I have read the other reviews and it seems everyone else has loved this tea. I must conclude then, that it is just me. Strange. I was very impressed with the previous 5 teas I have tasted from Zen Tea. Not so much with this one. To me, the dry leaf smells of coconut liquor (alcohol). The wet leaf smells pineapple and the mug smells like gym socks. When the cup cools, it does get creamy and the aftertaste is nice, like a floral tiguanyin. I just can’t get passed the smell. Do read the other reviews, as apparently I just don’t get it.

Another great tea from Zen, many thanks for the sample!

I love coconut as well as oolongs, so this was a big hit. The coconut flavoring is very similar to the Coconut Sencha that Zen also offers, but less toasty and more creamy – partially the oolong base I would imagine.

I’m on my 5th steeping and the coconut flavor has just started to fade. Impressive!

I’m torn between the Green Sencha and the Oolong to be honest. I think I might prefer the creamy nature of Oolong a little over the Sencha, but it’s a close call. Hmmm…I might just have bite the bullet and order both!

This smells like coconut candy. Which is amazing right now because I seriously need something sweet and relaxing.
Actually… it really smells like buttery coconut shrimp. Which sounds weird but is, again, amazing. I seriously love oolongs.
I was a little disappointed with the flavor – it was kind of thin. I added a little extra leaves anyway so I think I would need to brew this longer, closer to three minutes to really get the flavor – I was missing the lilac notes too.
It does smell amazing though.

This was a good oolong, too bad it isn’t real coconut flavour though. It is very smooth and almost creamy coconut.
Resteep 5 minutes, tastes just as good as the first.
It is also delicious iced.
