Couple things before I review this — the leaves do not look like they do in the picture. There is a downright crazy amount of coconut shavings in this. Like each teaspoon is about half tea, half squiggly pieces of coconut. Wow. The flowers described in the name seem to be cornflower, calendula, and chamomile. I can see coconut and chamomile going together.
Second, this tea isn’t listed on Pinky Up’s website. I only see it on Amazon. Have I found yet another discontinued tea? That would be my luck lately.
Anyway, it smells like coconut paradise. I absolutely love coconut, so I am more than excited. The tea brews up pale and greenish. It smells like dessert in the best way. There is a tiny bit of coconut oil floating on the surface, but nothing like 52 Teas’ coconut flavors. As far as taste goes, it’s everything I had hoped it would be. So creamy, with notes of vanilla. It’s like coconut cream pie filling.
I can’t wait to try this iced. It’s definitely a winner. Possibly the best coconut tea I’ve had to date.
EDIT: Coming back to say that I am kinda getting a weird chlorine note. Not sure if it was my preparation or my cup or what. I might dock a few points for that if I taste it again next time.
EDIT 2: I made this over ice last weekend and there was no chlorine note. It was just pure coconut bliss.
