I really wish I was a DAVIDsTEA spokesperson! Now that would be a job for me!
Now that spring is in the air, there’s new teas to try, too!
- Coconut Oolong
- Pom Tango
- Honeydew Mate
Obviously I bought the entire collection when it hit stores. How could I not? That wouldn’t be very Meg of me would it?
All of the teas included within this collection are to die for and that says a lot because fruit teas aren’t always my favourite; however, these all blew me away.
Copabanana is a tea brought back from two years ago and I loved it back then and Daydreamer is a tea from last year – and it just so happens that it was my favourite tea from last year’s spring collection!? – thus, this collection is one of their best!
Today I’ll be reviewing the Coconut Oolong as it is my favourite of the entire collection, but I plan to write a review for all five teas in future posts.
As I said, this tea is my personal favourite from the 2013 Spring Collection. I knew I’d love it since I’m a fan of coconut and all other oolong teas, but I didn’t know it’d be this amazing.
This tea blend features:
- Pao Zhong oolong tea
- Coconut flakes
- Artificial coconut flavour
Simple! Just the way I like it
The smell of this tea is so comforting. A strong creamy coconut scent from when you open the package to the time it’s done steeping.
I’ve been drinking this tea from the time I wake up all the way through to mid afternoon. The caffeine content is considered to be a “medium” on the caffeine scale, so even if I drink it in the evening I’m still able to sleep.
In order to taste the coconut best (and not too much of the leaves), I have been steeping my leaves for about 3 minutes. I wouldn’t allow this tea to steep any longer than 5 minutes, though, or else it may get a little bitter and the coconut flavour will be overpowered by the oolong.
I highly recommend this tea as a latte! It enhances the creaminess and makes this tea truly to die for!
I’m hooked on the Coconut Oolong tea, so I hope you give it a try if you have the chance! You definitely won’t be disappointed if you’re a coconut lover like myself!
