Mmmmmmm...delicious from the first dry-bag sniff through the cup and even in the aftertaste! Finally again, for only the second time in my experience: a coconut-flavored green tea that really is coconut-dominant, and since I enjoy coconut a lot, that's a good thing.

The best part is that the coconut flavor asserts control, but doesn't entirely obscure the green tea, lemongrass and ginger. It merely is the star of the tea-drinking film with the other flavors as supporting actors, and the show is a very well-scripted and -acted story throughout. The sachets contain reasonably large ingredient pieces—enough to pass for a loose-leaf if one were to tear them apart and put them in a tin—and the wet bag swells up very nicely, no empty space. They didn't skimp on the coconut flavor. Though I wish they used actual coconut pieces, after seeing the bag swell up so large, I reckon something else would have to be sacrificed. Lemongrass, maybe?

The only thing that drags on the rating just a bit for me is the high in-store price I saw over a year ago for a 20-ct tin (≈ $8), which seems common for teas of this brand, though the (as of this writing) 50-sachet online sale price of nearly $13 for a 50-ct bag isn't too bad. [My tin was an estate-sale find, unrepresentatively inexpensive!] Regardless, I'll gladly recommend this blend for anybody who likes coconut and wants to drink green tea.

I love me a good coconut flavored beverage, from coconut coffee to piña coladas, and I couldn't resist trying this blend when I heard about it. And yay, it was great!

Bangkok blend is great because all of the flavors really compliment each other...I'm not even a fan of lemongrass or ginger but in this tea it all comes together. I find that those two flavors come through the strongest in the aroma, but the coconut and green tea reign pleasantly in the flavor. It can however turn too bitter if you leave the tea bag in for too many minutes, so keep an eye on it!

Overall a good choice and a good brand!
