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 Green Tea Anyone? #PacificTea

Whenever Pacific Tea Company is located, I can with pretty good authority say it’s probably not close to me, you guys. This blend (dubbed “Local Hideaway”), had it been a hideaway local to ME– would probably taste like a snow-covered forest floor. Or a tundra-infused Great Lake. Needless to say, all of the hideaways local to my current home are not exactly flavors you’d want steeping in your cup.

But luckily, wherever is local to Pacific Tea tastes far, far better than here. This green blend is strong on the vegetal green notes at the front of the sip, with delightfully fresh coconut-and-vanilla lingering at the end. I’m still coming around on grassy green teas, so at first sip, I wasn’t too sure if this would be the brew for me.

But it’s absolutely redeemed and made all the more interesting by those sweetly lingering tropical notes at the end of each sip.

Pacific Tea, wherever you are, I’m comin’ for ya. If this is what your local hideaways taste like, I want to go to there.

It is Macaroon Season: Try Coconut Almond Macaroon from the NecessiTeas

I feel like I’ve see a lot of macaroon-themed teas popping up this spring so it felt like time to try a tea I was saving in my collection, Coconut Almond Macaroon from the NecessiTeas.

It’s a little known fact that I like coconut in my baked goods and sweets.  Almond Joy bars or Coconut Cluster Girl Scout cookies are the way to go!  And don’t even get me started on Hostess Sno-Balls…

The dry leaf of this blend smelled strongly of almond, almost like amaretto liqueur or almond extract.  Almond was definitely the dominant tone, but there was some coconut cream hiding beneath the marzipan fragrance.  This tea has a green tea base, so I kept the water temperatures a little lower and let it steep.  I could hardly keep my nose out of the mug while I waited.  The brew smelled so delicious, sweet and nutty, with much more coconut coming forward as time went on.

This tea is true to its name: coconut macaroon.  There’s the smooth, almond-cookie, sweet chocolate, and plenty of buttery coconut.  Using green tea beneath all these flavors was a great choice by The Necessiteas.  The coconut is toasted and warm, and almost makes the green tea taste like a roasted hojicha.  The green tea also makes this blend light enough that the coconut and chocolate don’t need to compete for prominence, and it allows the cookie flavors to really shine.  After a long day, this was the perfect dessert tea to brew up as a treat!

Taster’s Review:

I’m not sure where I found Bangkok Green Tea from Nectar Fine Teas but it doesn’t look like they have an online presence except for a FB page. I’m sad to find this because this coconut flavored green tea and I have become the best of friends as of late!

This flavored green tea is a lovely mix of green tea, coconut pieces, and lemongrass. Simple yet full of fresh proper flavor. I am a huge fan of cold brewing tea at work. I pour a few scoops into my silicone infuser, some ice, and water and let the cup sit. I use a stainless steel tumbler which holds all the coldness in quiet nicely.  In just about a half an hour or so, I have the start of a wonderful iced cuppa tea.

As an iced flavored green tea, this tea really delivers on flavor! Cool crisp green tea with a lovely lush coconut flavor that just stands out with perfection.  The lemongrass flavor I don’t really get in this cuppa, but maybe as a hot tea that flavor might stand up better.

We did try cold brewing the tea overnight in a pitcher and the flavors were just about the same as when we cold brewed it in a tumbler. The only difference is that the coconut flavor is way more prominent when cold brewing overnight.  So if you are a fan of green teas and coconut flavors, I suggest cold brewing this one. You’ll be in coconut-green tea- heaven!  Maybe before my stash runs out, I’ll try Bangkok as a hot tea but for now, I’m loving this tea just as it is!
