I’ve been searching a long time for a blend such as this. As another tea drinker stated on the California Tea House website, “It is like a tea margarita!”, and it really is! A perfect summertime flavor, this blend is perfect hot and even better iced.
The lime is most prominent, with an authentic lime juice flavor – just slightly tart, slightly sweet. The coconut is sweet yet strong enough to be tasted, the perfect compliment to the bright tangy lime notes! The tea leaves in this blend are of high quality, and expand quite a lot when steeped, so make sure they have plenty of room to unfurl. There are huge slices of coconut amidst the tea leaves that make it even more delightful.
It has a very soft, subtle aroma that I really wish I had in a body spray…the lightest whisper of lime sets on top of a tropical scented undertone.
This is one INCREDIBLE tea!
California Tea House describes this tea as:
This ‘Muppet’ inspired blend turned out to be a keeper! Lime in the Coconut is a ridiculously tasty blend of superior Indian Assam and fine Chinese green teas tossed with shredded coconut, lime juice and sunflower petals. You’ll love it so much you’ll scream, “Doctor!”
Use 1 to 2 heaping tablespoons per cup of just below boiling (steaming) filtered water and steep for 2 to 3 minutes.
Muppets? What’s this about Muppets you say? I had never heard or seen this before reviewing this blend, but it seems a lot of people are familiar with an old Sesame Street sketch called “Lime in the Coconut”. So for those of you with fond memories of this sketch – and for those of you who have never seen it before – I present the Muppets and “Lime in the Coconut”:
