Review of Roasted Coconut (No. 1642)

ExcellentGoodGood Value

Half-litre pot at home. Pours clear copper brown with no sediment. Clear aroma of coconut, with notes of roast and black tea leaves and mild hints of caramel. Sweetish flavour of coconut (fortunately, not aggressive, like it can be in some cheap brands I have tried before), with bitter nuances of black tea and touches of roast. Mild, yet lingering palate of coconut and tea leaves, with caramelise hints. A very well-balanced tea, which is why I chose not to follow the advice on the tea company's homepage, according to which it would taste good, too, if sweetened. I would rather not distort its natural coconut and amaranth sweetness. The leaves are quite fine, with tiny pieces of roasted and grated coconut (much smaller than in the image on the tea company's homepage). Fair price (€4.50 per 100 g). Nice on an chilly afternoon, before some more work in the evening. I would recommend brewing small portions, though, as the third cup from the same pot is too roasty, at least for my taste.
