I normally carry to work each day, an adorable lunch tote, filled with tea. Of course, yesterday to my complete chagrin, I forgot to bring it to work. I also forgot my ID Badge – which meant I was locked out of the building. My office keys – once in the building, I was locked out of my office. My lunch – thus requiring me to scavenge for food. And as I previously mentioned, my tea so I had to scavenge for tea as well. So what did I find?
Coconut White Tea. Thanks Lisa for your generosity and compassion for the tea feign!
Composition: White Tea from India, shredded coconut, natural flavor. (There we go again with the natural flavors?)
Dry Visual: Beautiful! I can’t help it – the leaves were large, some broken some whole and appear to have been left opened to dry. There are various colors of leaves and stems that reminded me of trees in the fall. Not only green, but yellow and a reddish brown or rust color were present. Thanks TeaGschwendner for the lovely picture. And yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, the coconut pieces are huge!
Dry Aroma: Yummy! Distinctly coconut as though I would expect something different and very sweet smelling.
Flavor: Coconut White Tea is very flavorful! When drinking, I could easily discern the white tea; however, coconut is the predominant flavor. Naturally sweet, one could enjoy Coconut White Tea without sweetener as I did initially. After adding a dab of honey, I have decided that my preference is to enjoy this tea with sweetener. Coconut White tea is a full-bodied tea, not heavy in the mouth and contains no bitterness or dryness. A blended tea, when drinking, you get the benefits of the delicate white tea with a robust coconut flavor. Additionally, the coconut, tasted natural not artificial.
Liquor: Amber colored.
Brewing Time: Recommended brewing time is 2 minutes. Initially I brewed for the recommended 2 minutes.
In the midst of tea withdrawals, I was able to procure a good cuppa tea. If you have had the opportunity to drink Coconut White Tea, stop by and share your experience. Until then… Happy Tea Drinking!
