The complex flavor provides plenty of flavors to uncover as you sip: enticing coconut, floral notes, rich green tones, a sweet aftertaste. Note the creamy mouthfeel, akin to fresh coconut milk.

Additional Information

Savoring Your Experience:

There are two ways to pair Coconut Pouchong. You can stay with the theme of coconut and pair it with coconut macaroons or coconut cake. Or you can use its sweet, coconut flavor as a foil for a salad of microgreens and toasted walnuts, a grilled fish with orange glaze, or a delicately spiced Indian curry.

Fun Facts:

Pouchong / Baozhong tea is a type of green oolong. It is lightly oxidized, so it has a flavor that is at once reminiscent of a green tea and an oolong tea, yet it's also incredibly floral.

The leaves of this Pouchong tea are tightly rolled, so as you infuse it multiple times, you can taste a shift from the bold coconut flavor of early infusions to more green and floral notes in later infusions.

    Wonderful discovery!

    This became my favorite tea with the first cup! I've not been an oolong fan particularly, but the pouchong oolong is truly something special--smooth and full of flavor with no harshness whatsoever on the palate. And the coconut flavor is a distinct presence but simultaneously very well integrated into the tea. I find this pouchong warming and soothing, my "go to" tea when I'm seeking comfort--or really most anytime. And it can, as indicated by the brewing instructions, be resteeped again and again without losing flavor. It is almost like magic! If you like coconut and value quality tea, order up some Coconut Pouchong without hesitation!

    The Coconut Pouchong Tea is excellent as iced tea. I love it!! When the day is so very hot, a nice tall glass of Coconut iced tea is superb!
