Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: Rishi Tea
Creamy, smooth coconut perfectly blended with Bao Zhong oolong.
This is so nice. I’ve tried several coconut Oolong/coconut Pouchong, but this just may be my favorite of those that I’ve tasted. The reason is that the Oolong flavor here dominates, with a lovely coconut tone that rests in the background and lingers in the aftertaste. While the coconut is an obvious presence in this cup, it does not overpower the sweet notes of the Bao Zhong Oolong tea.
The Oolong has a beautiful smooth flavor. While I wouldn’t consider it an overtly rich Oolong, it does have hints of buttery undertones. This isn’t the typical buttery Oolong where it feels like it’s left a thick coat of buttery essence in your mouth. Don’t get me wrong, I like those Oolongs too (yum, butter!) but, I like the refreshing lightness of this Bao Zhong. It has a hint of astringency at the tail that is not so much drying as it is lightly cleansing, keeping the palate clear to enjoy the coconut flavors.
This is a delicious Oolong! I love it!
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!
