Vanessa’s Teaview Snapshot
|"I've only had two cups of this tea, and I am already addicted."|
Coconut tea has always been among my all-time favorite tea selections. I have had coconut teas from at least four other vendors, and while I have enjoyed them all, my general conclusion had been along the lines of "you taste one coconut tea, you taste them all". Enter Zhi Tea coconut assam to show me the errors of my thinking. This tea smells stronger and fresher than any coconut tea I have tasted. There are small pieces of coconut mixed in with the tea leaves. Zhi's website also mentions that the coconut, like the tea itself, is organically grown. An instant nutty sweetness struck my nose and had me near salivating (but luckily I was able to control myself). The brewed tea is, in a word, divine. The coconut flavor is authentic (not a hint of artificial flavor here), and is just right in terms of its strength. What made this coconut tea so unique from other coconut tea offerings is that Zhi tea manages to perfectly capture the essence of toasted coconut, and it is that little special toasted flavor that really makes the difference. The tea is hearty, sweet, and delicious. The tea is perfectly sweet and enjoyable on its own, but the addition of milk and sugar made it a downright satisfying beverage that was hearty enough to satisfy my all-too-common cravings for something sweet. Zhi Tea knows how to make naturally-flavored teas that really quell a sweet-tooth such as mine (and trust me, that is no easy feat). The rich and malty assam base is perfect to bring out the sweet and nutty coconut flavor. I could continue with my ravings, but it should suffice to say that this tea rocks. Hands down, Zhi's take on coconut tea is the best coconut tea I have had yet. I've only had two cups of this tea, and I am already addicted. Zhi, what have you done to me?
