Found a tin of this at Winners. I didn’t bother reading the label and assumed that this was literally just green tea with coconut and nothing more. Upon bringing this home, I read the description, realizing that this also has lemongrass, vanilla, and ginger. Sounds good to most, I’m sure, but I groaned. Isn’t this basically Bangkok, then? That’s what I’m groaning about. I know a lot of people enjoy that one but for me, there’s something about the combination of lemongrass and coconut (and a touch of ginger) that reminds me of Thai coconut curry, which is fabulously delicious, but I’m not too crazy over drinking a tea that tastes like it. It’s just a little wrong for me.
So cold brewed, this is lemongrass and ginger followed by a puff of coconut. I probably would have preferred this without the coconut, or only the green base with coconut. One or the other.
Since Bangkok got a 71 from me a few years ago, this will too since I swear they’re basically the same tea. Do I regret it? Not really. At least I got a cute pink tin, and since I use at least two bags at a time when I cold brew, I could easily polish this off.
