291 Tasting Notes
I got this in Munnar, India. I bought this tea after watching person after person buy 3-6 bags, so I thought this must be the tea to buy!
It’s a very strong CTC black tea. It reminds me of an Assam by the briskness. The website notes the floral note. I really like this tea iced. I bought it within a month of it being processed. The freshness is something really special. The tea itself has the beautiful smell that the tea factories smell like.
It’s really difficult to beat Golden Moon’s Coconut Oolong. This is the closest to being as good, but still, not there. There’s suppose to be pineapple in the blend, but I don’t taste much of it. The coconut flavor reminds me more of coconut water than the meat itself. I prefer a toasted coconut taste if I have to pick. This makes for an excellent iced tea.
I had this tea as a sample in the store, and fell in love. The flavor is so SUMMER AND BRIGHT!!! I had a warm in the store, and I knew it was destined to be amazing iced, and it is! The black tea base is so robust and thick on the tongue. On the packaging, it says it’s South Indian black tea. I really love the creamy taste of it, too. I think I like this better than their green coconut! I see myself buying this over and over!!!
I feel this black tea is very astringent, I never use boiling water to brew. It’s a good cream earl grey. I was spoiled by having another, so I compared it to that. I drank it with rice milk and sugar. Very tasty treat. Served it over ice, too. Though I feel I need sugar with it, so I won’t drink it much.
