Exotic Coconut a taste of paradise in a cup...

For the lovers of the exotic, (within moderation) this tea has to be tried to be believed! From the aroma when the contents are first released, to the aroma when brewing, and right through to the very last mouthful; this will not disappoint. I know, here at theuklooseleafteacompany, we are always raving about something, all ravings (I hope) are completely founded. This exotic coconut black tea is absolutely unbelievably awesome (if you like coconut). Blended with Lulo fruit (Lulo is also known as 'Naranjilla' or 'little orange' and grows on a bush. Lulo is native to the Andes mountains in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. The fruit has a leather like orange skin covered with a hairy fuzz. The inside looks like green tomato), marigold and safflower. Brewed for 3-4 minutes according to taste, this exotic black tea blend takes on a a warm golden honey brown; it has a smooth yet heady flavour; sit back close your eyes and be transported to a tropical paradise (well, for a few minutes anyway) reminiscent of my favourite holiday in Hawaii, and the amazing cocktails at sundown at the extremely romantic (could have been the cocktails) beach bar - this tea is going straight to the top of this month's must drink list; also, it's pretty and aromatic enough to be used as pot pourri?! But that would be a waste of this delicious beverage. This blend would make an excellent Christmas gift to introduce a novice to a plethora of other worldly flavours, I use this term as when I mentioned this tea to my father – he looked at me as if I had just landed from another planet! Try it now, Exotic Coconut.

  • This is indeed an unusual sounding tea, I don’t think I have ever come across coconut and tea in one. This would make a great gift, I agree. It sounds great!
