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.

It’s rare if I purchase a bottled iced GREEN tea in a store. Usually because I find most of them have added and unnecessary ingredients in them and/or sweeteners. Many of you know that I drink my teas straight-up with nothing added. So when I try a tea that is something other than “unsweetened” it just tastes so ‘OFF’ to me.
When I saw this Peach ICED Green Tea product from LeCharm arrive I was a little nervous. I was assuming it would have those ‘things’ I dread in bottled and store bought teas. But you know what they say about ASSUMING things, right?
Plain and simple this product has a goal of providing you with a brewed iced tea taste in 3 seconds or less. All I did was mix with about 8 ounces of cold water. Altho you can mix with Hot/Cold/Iced Water and can try it with 6 to 10 ounces of water. They suggest you shake well if mixing with Cold/Iced water. And remind you mixing with less water if a stronger taste preferred.
I thought I would go middle of the road with this first attempt and I have to say I was blown away with how natural it tasted! It tasted like a medium-strong green tea with a little bit of peach in there! SUCCESS!
