Tea Forté Coconut Mango Colada Green Tea

Coconut is one of those foods and flavors people seem to either love or hate. Me, I love it! I enjoy coconut cake, coconut macaroons, coconut-topped ambrosia, and of course, coconut-flavored teas. I came across several new coconut-flavored teas at The Fresh Market in Peachtree City recently, and the Mango Colada was calling my name!

It occurs to me this is the third box of Tea Forté teas I have bought lately, so they're obviousy marketing well to my tastebuds. It wasn't until I got home with this tea that I realized it wasn't black tea, as I had assumed, but green tea. I would say, "I should have read the box," but in reality if it's got coconut in it, I don't care what type of tea it is so it doesn't matter if I read the box or not!

This tea had me at first whiff. Mmm, was it good! The steeped tea smells wonderful as well, and happily the flavor lives up to its fragrance. This tea has that nice sweet finish I associate with "dessert" type teas, and now I'm thinking I need to try the other new coconut teas from Tea Forté as well. Any coconut fans reading today? If so, got any coconut teas to recommend?


  1. I've never tried coconut tea so I must do that. Thanks for the post.

  2. I haven't tried a coconut tea, but after reading your post, I'm going to try. I do love coconut!

  3. That tea sounds wonderful! And your tea cup is so pretty.

    I've only had coconut tea one time at a tea room in Springfield, Missouri. (It's not a flavor you see every day!) I don't know if it was a particular brand or their own blend, though.

  4. I love coconut too and think I would enjoy this tea! I will look for it. It sounds delicious! Although, like you, I generally prefer black tea, I am learning to really enjoy white and green as well. And with coconut? Perfection!

  5. Not a huge coconut fan, but can take it on occasion. Sometime back Steph gave me some Coconut Pouchong Tea, which was quite good. I don't remember where it was from. Enjoy your coconut adventure.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
