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.

Once again I try a coconut oolong and love the heck out of it—apparently as flavored oolongs go that’s my thing! This is sort of the perfect middle ground between the very creamy American Tea Room one I recently tried and the fresher, more intense, coconut water-ish Golden Moon one. Makese sense—I’ve noticed Zen Tea seems to excel at balanced flavor (their Earl Grey Cream is a good example). I’d happily drink this again; it’s delicious, both indulgently smooth and fresh, refreshingly perky. But the truth is I’d want all 3, ‘cause sometimes you want a mouthful of coconutty cream and sometimes you don’t. Yum!

This is actually the very first oolong I tried. Even though I now prefer the aged and roasted oolongs, it is still quite enjoyable and somehow very comforting. Today I enjoyed two hot infusions and then went for a third to enjoy iced sometime tomorrow or the next day. It’s one tea that will remain in my tea cupboard.

A review of Coconut Oolong (Oolong tea flavoured) by Zen Tea

Date: 10/10/2012
Company: Zen Tea
Tea Name: Coconut Oolong
Tea Type/Varietal: Oolong
Region: China
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ leaf
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: light brownish / amber
Leaf Characteristics: tea leaves appeared to be withered then fried perhaps when I open the tea packet. It smells strongly of the coconut.

  1. Steepings: 2 steeps, 1st steep was too strong 2nd not too bad; so longer steeps might dilute the tea’s strong aroma. It is not jasmine but exudes like a jasmine tea with coconut.

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 175 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes

Note: I took one teaspoon of the leaves and put this in my cup and poured the water that began boiling and let to cool into the cup over the leaves and left to steep for a few minutes. After the set time, I strain out the tea leaves and pour the tea into another cup and the color is light brown and smells strongly of coconuts. I find this a bit over powering because I tend to not like coconut. When I taste the tea it is very sweet as if sugar is present but I have not added a thing to it.

2nd Steeping:
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes

Note: I decided to boil the water longer and using the same tea leaves I pour the water over the tea leaves in my cup and left to steep for 3 minutes. I want less of the coconut this time; or I am hoping to not smell it as much. With the first cup of tea I had I thought I smelled something like vanilla but it may have been the lilac, but I am not sure. There is a faint scent underneath the coconut which makes me think of vanilla bean.

The teas’ aroma is lightly coconut and floral like with sweetness to it as well that permeates the air. It is like candy / sugary. I don’t smell the coconut as much now; it is not as annoying I should say.

I will have to leave this oolong alone for a while. I am happy to review oolong teas but this one seems a bit too strong in aroma.

Thank you Zen Tea for this large sample! I opened the package and smelled it- STRONG coconut! That made me a little worried this would be very artificial tasting. I followed their directions of 1 tsp of tea per cup , and steeped for 3 minutes. I am very pleased with how it turned out! The coconut is present but isn’t nasty artificial tasting, and the oolong base is creamy. The only thing that would make this better is if it had real coconut in it, but I think this as good as a coconut tea can get without it! It’s quite good!

I was so excited for my samples from Zen Tea – and surprised that they arrived so quickly! The Coconut Oolong was the first one I opened, and I was very happy with the toasted coconut scent that hit my nose!

Once brewed, the toastiness definitely remained, but I’m not so sure about a real presence of coconut flavour. This tea is good enough that it really doesn’t matter – I loved it anyway. It was comforting and just what I was looking for. I appreciated that it wasn’t an artificial tasting coconut tea. I will probably order more of this with my next order.

It’s been a while since I’ve drank any oolong, and this wasn’t a bad way to get back into it. The coconut smell is rather strong from the dry leaves and stays present once steeped. It brews to a pale golden color with a very, very buttery mouthfeel. Seriously, this is one of the most buttery teas I’ve tasted. There’s a bit of a vegetal aftertaste. This one won’t win over anyone who isn’t a fan of oolong, but it’s not bad to have in your cabinet. I think I’m going to ice my next cup and see how that turns out.

Sipdown!
I really love this. It’s creamy, sweet coconut with a hint of floral. Yum. I might need to restock it.

I have had this tea many times now and it has become one of my favorites and one I will always keep on hand. I have it while I work and steep it many times and the taste changes each time but continues to be wonderful! coconut flavor but not overwhelming or artificial, I find it calming and soothing to me.

I had really high expectations for this tea. I read the reviews, I like oolong, and I like coconut.

It’s pretty good. The first steep had a fairly strong taste, and left a coating in my mouth that hinted at coconut, but also another flavour that I can’t quite place. The second steep was creamier, with a milder scent and taste. I think I prefer the second, as it doesn’t feel like it coats my mouth at the end. As a plus, there was no bitterness with either steep.

I think I’ve been spoiled trying so many coconut oolongs recently. I’ll enjoy drinking this one, but I may not replace it unless subsequent steeps really blow me away.
