Thanks so much for this one, Tamarindel! I HAD to try this one! A green oolong with fresh looking flakes of coconut, cocoa nibs and big pieces of vanilla I can see in the blend. Coconut, chocolate, vanilla on an oolong base is unique enough to me! I used two teaspoons because there are a ton of goodies here mixed with the oolong leaves. The oolong is smooth and really hides behind so much coconut flavor! I really like the coconut flavor. However, the chocolate and vanilla is also hiding behind all that coconut. With the second steep, the coconut is a bit tamer and the oolong makes more of a presence, though still a smooth delicious green oolong — it seems like a buttery oolong more than any other flavor type. Love the buttery oolongs. The third steep still has a ton of coconut and is still very smooth, even while steeping at just boiled. This is excellent if you’re looking for a coconut oolong. Though the chocolate and vanilla are still missing (unless they just blend in so well it is tough to notice), so I will lower the rating without the balance of the chocolate and vanilla. A better balance between the ingredients and this would be a perfect blend.
