Coconut Green Tea from LST. . . .Love Some Tea. . .

I love green tea, and I love coconut so I was pretty excited to try this tea. It was better than I could have hoped.

It’s a smooth green tea with a very slight smoky flavor, and an amazing coconut aroma and flavor. I could drink this delicious tea all day. It’s clean, and decadent. It has that kind of fatty coconut flavor, and I mean that in the best way. The coconut kind of cuts the earthiness of the green tea. I had mine warm and it was a wonderful way to wake up. I have a feeling this would be amazing iced as well.

This tea is perfect for anyone who enjoys slightly smoky flavors with a nice dose of coconut flavor. But don’t expect the overly sweet coconut flavor you get from artificially flavored coconut beverages. This is the real deal, real coconut flavor that is not cloyingly sweet at all. I bet this would also make a fantastic green tea latte with coconut milk, iced or hot!

I had never heard of LST tea before, but after trying this delicious tea I hope to try many more flavors. They are an ethical and sustainable tea company which in my opinion makes the tea taste even better!

Coconut Flan Genmaicha from 52Teas. . . .

So I am only about half a year late but I am getting into the 12 Teas of Christmas. This particular tea, Coconut Flan Genmaicha, was from the 4th night of Christmas and unfortunately that means it is no longer available. However, in case it comes back, I will probably try snatching some more of this up because it is a tasty tea.

I have never had flan personally but my understanding is it is a gelatinous custard with a caramel top (drizzle? coating?). So if I am wrong about what flan is I am sorry but that is what I am basing my interpretation on and based on that, I would say this tea is pretty true to its name.

The first thing I notice is the almost thick and creamy custard quality. A little bit eggy and a little bit sweet. In fact, a caramelized sweetness floats atop the sip. Underneath the custard, the genmaicha – a pop of roastiness to keep everything else in check. It is both desserty and like cereal which makes this tea great as either a nighttime treat or a morning pick-me-up.

Coconut Tea from CaCafe . . . .

This stuff is SO funky! When I saw the name “coconut tea” I was not expecting something that looked like ivory-colored brown sugar! The consistency of this is a powder that is thick and caked like brown sugar. It looks like a bag of powder, not tea. I went onto CaCafe’s website to see what all this is about, and apparently this is coconut and green tea all ground together. It is alleged to help with metabolism, weight loss, hair loss, and skin health. I was immediately intrigued, especially after seeing the consistency! What a funky and unique product.

I mixed 4 tbsp with 12oz of water (directions say 2 tbsp per 6oz of hot water). I let it cool for a bit and mixed it up a little more. I did not add sweetener because I wanted to taste it first, I wasn’t sure whether this was a pre-sweetened variety or not. It smells a little astringent/chemically. I’m not sure if it is a flavoring or ingredient used, but it tastes a little that way too. It is also reminding me of those Necco Wafers. Remember those when you were a kid? I used to eat them all the time. I thought they were so cool. There’s a powdery mouthfeel and that strong taste in this drink that I am associating with Necco Wafers. There is an underlying coconut-y/nutty flavor here that is present in the aftertaste. I can tell there is coconut, more like a coconut milk because it’s milky and creamy. What I can’t tell, though, is that there is green tea. Neither the drink nor the powder is green. So, i’m not sure where in this the green tea is hiding but it isn’t present aesthetically or taste-wise. Now, I don’t want you readers to think that this is bad. Especially if you are interested in the health benefits, it totally is not a bad drink. I keep sipping it because its so interesting and intriguing. I think that I have the sweetened variety because it doesn’t need sweetener. It’s definitely worth a try if you are interested or intrigued about this mix, and I am curious to see how I feel after a few days of drinking it. Who knows, maybe my hair will be shinier! Definitely worth a try.
