adagio-coconut-black.jpgAdagio's Coconut blend is sure to add a little tropical beat to your day.  Coconut is a flavor that I find irresistible and after discovering this tea among Adagio's enormous online collection I knew that I had to try it.  This tea has three simple ingredients; black tea, natural coconut flavor and dried coconut.  I love that Adagio uses natural flavorings - no sugary, artificial coconut flavor here!  The slivers of dried coconut are visible among the small, twisted leaves.  Don't let the rather plain and unassuming look of the dry leaves disappoint you, there is a bold flash of creamy coconut flavor hiding in there!  As soon as you open the packet the rich aroma instantaneously emerges.  The dry leaves smell robustly of lightly sweetened coconut.

Another aspect of this tea is the ease of preparation.  I used one teaspoon of tea in boiling water.  The tea liquor's nutty and slightly malty aroma swells during the three minute steeping time.  The brewed leaves reveal medium-sized pieces of tea leaf.  The coconut slivers are plump and have released their intoxicating flavor.  The tea liquor in my white teacup is a lovely medium amber color.

After just one sip of this tea, I knew it would become a regular in my tea cabinet.  There is no bitterness in this blend and little astringency.  It truly is an extremely smooth and pleasant cup.  The first discernible flavor is malty, but from there all the senses focus on the velvety coconut essence.  The image in my mind as I close my eyes and sip this tea is of the dense, milky inside of a fresh, ripe coconut.  There is a wispy tropical coconut finish that lingers and will leave you longing for just one more taste of the delectable flavor of this tea.

Adagio's Coconut blend is certainly the ideal soothing cup of tea.  A small amount of sweetener is the perfect compliment for the delicate nutty flavor.  For all of you fellow coconut devotees out there, I've found that slightly increasing the amount of tea used per cup will broaden the intensity of the rich flavor.  No matter what way you choose to enjoy this tea, I guarantee it will add a little warmth to your day and perhaps a few visions of tropical, sultry beaches, laden with countless fresh coconuts of course!
