  1. Coconut-Vanilla

    Posted by Susan on 19th Jul 2013

    I can smell and taste the coconut and the vanilla in this fragrant black tea. I agree with another review that it reminds me of liquor. I would have prefered just coconut, because I a not a fan of vanilla teas. I use less than half a teaspoon for a 20 oz. cup and it is still flavorful and very smooth. If you like vanilla, this tea might be for you.



  2. Not Good

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Jun 2013

    This tea had a chemical taste. I didn't like it at all.



  3. Very Good.

    Posted by Alexandra Fimbres on 5th Mar 2012

    It was quite tasty! I had a piece of dark chocolate with this tea--that combination is really really wonderful. The quality really is remarkable; I don't agree with the other rather negative reviews at all! I will be ordering this again--this time in a larger amount!



  4. very fermented taste

    Posted by Katherine and Laura on 16th Feb 2012

    Agree with previous review that tastes as if it has been soaked in a cheap liquor. Tried milk, coconut milk, sweeteners and can't hide this taste. Usually not a picky tea drinker, but have trouble drinking this one.



  5. perfect flavor

    Posted by Michelle Doyle on 11th Apr 2011

    This tea makes a wonderful iced tea! I love the coconut flavor



  6. coconut tea

    Posted by Emily Kelly Ede on 13th Feb 2011

    I like your packaging and the other teas I ordered but this coconut tea is simply awful. I would give it no stars at all. It tastes like it has been soaked in some kind of cheap liquor. I'm so glad that I didn't order much of it because it is undrinkable. An expensive mistake and I'll have to throw it out.



  7. Coconut Black Tea--Star Performer

    Posted by Joanne on 18th Aug 2009

    This coconut black tea is superb on its own or great in combination. Its warm slightly buttery accent of chopped coconut blended throughout the tea makes it much more distinctive than black tea--but it doesn't have the sweet overtaste of many of the fruited black tea blends. A great find. I drink it iced year round. Think tropical breezes coconut palms calm waves warm sand contentment.

We at Arbor Teas firmly believe that tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. With that being said, here are some recommendations to get you started, but please remember you can make adjustments based on your own personal taste.

There are three main considerations when brewing tea: quantity of tea, water temperature and steeping time.

pro-ico-scoop.png

Quantity of tea: one level teaspoon per 8 oz cup of water




pro-ico-tempature.png

Water temperature: use water that has been heated to a full rolling boil (212° F)




pro-ico-timer.png

Steeping time: 3-5 minutes




Tip #1: Use fresh water whenever possible - water that has been sitting in your kettle overnight may impart a flat or stale taste to your tea. Be careful not to boil your water for too long. Over boiled water can sometimes impart an unwanted taste.

Tip #2: Keep in mind that brewing your tea for too long can extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves, so steeping time matters! For a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea.

There are five significant components found in all tea from the plant camellia sinensis: essential oils, which are the source of tea’s delicious flavor and aroma; polyphenols, which are antioxidants that provide the tea’s brisk flavor and many of its health benefits; phytonutrients, which are small amounts of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids including L-theanine (a very rare molecule that has been found in only three sources including camellia sinensis!) ; enzymes; and methylxanthines, which are a family of alkaloids that include caffeine. Each of these components work differently in the human body and a full description is best left to a medical journal. However, recent research exploring the potential health attributes of tea is leading many scientists to agree that tea, may contribute positively to a healthy lifestyle.
