 (15 reviews)

type: black

origin: china pu erh

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

Decadent coconut, the fruity mystique of papaya and the soft earthiness of pu erh come together for an exotic experience not unlike a walk on the black sand beaches of its namesake. Tropical fruit notes and hints of mineral evoke thoughts of Pacific breezes and rainforest hikes. Steep at 212°F for 5 minutes

      This is so weak compared to Pu Erh Hazelberry, which I love! I tried doubling the steep time and the amount of tea but it still is weak flavored and I don't get any of the coconut flavor. Gonna stick with my beloved Hazelberry which is 6 stars out of 5!

      What can I say besides WOW. This tea is just as delicious as the other pu'erh teas offered. The dark and robust flavor and the aroma are what bring me to wanting cup after cup!

      nice fruity puerh. The earthiness from the tea works really well with the tropical flavors.

      Not a huge fan of this tea, it was a lot more bitter than expected

      This tea is delicious! One of my favorites I have tried from Adagio! The coconut and fruit flavors blend together well, and the taste, smell, and look of the tea is just perfect. I haven't had a lot of Pu-erh tea - this had sort of an earthy (dare I say "dirty") taste to it, which I didn't find entirely unpleasant. I don't normally go for coconut teas, so maybe having something so different was what made this pleasant. I drank this hot, but I would love to experience it iced as well. I could see myself drinking this often!

      Wonderfully smooth, the coconut carrying you off to the beach with the rest of the fruit tastes. Using an earthy pu-erh base kept it grounded and well rounded.

      Brewed 212F for 5 minutes with rock sugar added

      The scent is rather coconut forward. The flavor is a delightful tropical experience.

      This is the first pu-erh I've come across where I kept the rinse. It didn't have any fishy notes, just light earthiness.

      I had a good amount of every ingredient in my CommuniTea packet. The flavor was definitely 'tropical fruity', but other than that I couldn't pick out the separate flavors. I chose not to pick out any of the many rose petals, but even so it didn't have a heavy floral taste.

      All said and told I would say this is a well balanced, fruity and earthy tea. I would be interested in trying it more.

      My all-time favorite tropical tea as well as my favorite pu-erh. You really can’t lose with this one! I've never really been a pu-ehr fan but this one has a lot of ease of access.

      This is a good tea with a hint of tropical flavor and no astringency whatsoever. it would be suited well for any time of day.

      Very tropical in aroma and taste. The flavors most identifiable for me were apple and coconut, backed up by a fruit medley that was harder to pinpoint. It is great hot and iced, and steeps well twice.

      Fabulous blend. It's lightly floral, fruity, earthy and very, very smooth. No hint of bitterness or astringency. Love this one!

      I am mixed on coconut in teas. It does well in this blend with tropical flavors of papaya and mango.

      I love this tropical mix. I love the blend between coconut and papaya, very refreshing

      The coconut mixed with the papaya definitely feels tropical and tastes great!
