Thank you beelicious for another sample from Banff Tea Co which I would otherwise never have heard of! This one consists of tightly wound pearls of dark green oolong, and pieces of coconut. The coconut has been tinted green from storage with the oolong, which scared me a little at first. But upon checking the description, there were no other ingredients or additives, so it’s just… chlorophyll? Probably wouldn’t hurt.
The aroma of this one, both before and after brewing, is fresh, sweet coconut. It reminds me more of coconut milk or coconut water, instead of preserved pieces! The tea brews up to be very light in color. Upon tasting, the coconut note floats to the top, almost light and airy. The oolong base is excellent; I haven’t had much experience with milk oolongs but this must be one. It’s naturally creamy in a way that complements the coconut perfectly. A little leafy, and definitely fragrant, but not at all floral unlike other green oolongs. Very happy to have tried this one!
