The Tea Set Exceptional Exotic Oolong
The taste of this tea fell short of what I was expecting. The oolong base was sweet and nutty, not great but OK. The coconut however was not really there. Don't get me wrong, this is a decent tasting tea. It just wasn't very coconutty. The second steeping turned out to be pretty much the same. I've had some excellent coconut oolongs before so I know that they can be done. I think the problem may be in the kind of oolong used. Most other coconut blends use a pouchong, which is a very lightly oxidized form of oolong that really lets the other ingredients shine. I probably would not recommend this tea.
