Leaf Type: White
Where to Buy: Element Tea
With an inviting coconut scent, the first sip will bring a smile to your face. This tea delivers a sweet creamy texture with a light body and a good balance of flavors between tea and sweet coconut.
Over the last couple of years, I’ve grown rather fond of coconut flavored teas. This one may just be the best one yet!
The flavor is smooth and creamy and rich!
The white peony tea base is very soft and delicate which allows for the coconut flavor to develop fully. However, I am still able to taste the fresh, light taste of the tea. It tastes clean and possesses a faint leafy/grassy flavor. It is not bitter (and I oversteeped it!) and has very little astringency. It is sweet and very pleasant.
The coconut flavor is sweet and delicious. It imparts that sort of “slick” coconut feel to the palate, and because this tea has very little astringency, there is nothing that stands in the way from enjoying the aftertaste that the slickness delivers.
I just love the creaminess of this tea. Truly a delightful treat! It would make a very good dessert tea, it is sweet and delicious enough that I really wouldn’t miss a more caloric dish. And this is one that is just as delicious chilled as it is hot!
I highly recommend this tea to every lover of coconut out there!
