I brewed the tea in near-boiling water for four minutes. The resulting tea is a creamy treat that stays true to the coconut notes found in the tea's aroma. I did notice that the coconut flavor was a bit weaker than the coconut aroma, which did make me a little bummed. But to be clear, that last statement is a relative comparison. The coconut flavor of the tea is in no way weak, it is just not as strong as the aroma of the tea (which is pretty intense, in a most positive way). This tea does deliver genuine coconut taste that marries well with the Chinese black tea base. The coconut is readily identifiable, yet is not "in-your-face" strong. The tea has a wonderfully creamy mouthfeel that enhances the tea-drinking experience.
I enjoyed two cups of this tea and never even considered adding sugar or even milk to this tea (although I do suppose it would take either just fine), as the flavor was sweet and sturdy for the tea to hold its own. This is perhaps not as rich and boldly flavored as my aforementioned other beloved coconut tea, but this is a solid blend nonetheless, and one I will consider putting in my shopping cart during my next visit to ATR's online shop.
