Leaf Type: Pouchong
Where to Buy: Tea Chai Té
This lightly fermented oolong tea is instilled with young coconut nectar. One of the most joyfully intense teas we have with a strong aroma and light mellow brew. A popular favorite.
Yummy! The dry leaf smells so amazing from the moment I opened the pouch, my mouth started to water! I anxiously awaited as it brewed. Three minutes seemed to take FOREVER.
The natural creamy flavor of the Pouchong tea melds perfectly with the coconut flavor, and produces a cup that reminds me of the coconut water you would get from a fresh coconut – but with a softer, smoother mouthfeel.
The Pouchong base seems a perfect match for the sweet coconut flavor. It is lush and vibrant. The greener taste of this slightly oxidized tea lends a very fresh note to the coconut.
This tea doesn’t really need sweetener, but if you are one who prefers a sweeter tea, a little bit of agave nectar or honey wouldn’t hurt. And recently during a trip to Whole Foods, I noticed a new kind of sweetener: Coconut Nectar! While it says it doesn’t lend a coconut-y flavor to what it sweetens, it would still be an interesting addition, wouldn’t it?
If you like coconut, you really must try this tea. It is one of the very best coconut teas that I’ve ever tasted! Totally YUM!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
