In Love With The Coco from Pacific Tea. . .

The name of this tea refers to a rap song. The coco in its lyrics is not cocoa; nor is it coconut — it is a more forbidden, snowlike substance. (My young coworkers explained this to me months ago… with the weariness one typically reserves for one’s grandparents.) The “coco” in this blend refers to the innocuous coconut. It’s a wholesome blend altogether (ironically). It has a sweet coconut-pineapple-banana flavor with a splash of berries and petals to round it out.

There is a very simple and reasonable explanation for this. It’s because it contains Coconut Husks and Coconut. When I first looked at it I saw the husks but didn’t realize the husks were coconut husks. I didn’t really notice actual coconut either. But once I smelled the wonderful aroma it CLICKED. Savo Tea from Pacific Tea not only contains coconut and coconut husks it also contains carob and vanilla. The Read More
