coconut mango colada
Steep for 2-4 minutes, 175°F
For loose leaf iced teas, use 2 tsp per 8oz glass.
All tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. How the leaves of the plant are processed and their level of contact with oxygen determines the type of tea. The more processing the leaves go through, the darker the leaves become, resulting in a distinctive color and taste characteristic. There are four main varietals of tea: black, green, white, and oolong. Tea contains substances called flavonoids, which are powerful antioxidant polyphenols. Antioxidant polyphenols help protect the body's cells from damage due to harmful molecules called free radicals. Regardless of the processing method, black, green, white and oolong teas all contain polyphenols. In fact, tea ranks as high as or higher than many fruits and vegetables in the ORAC score, a score that measures antioxidant potential of plant-based foods. Green tea is a variety of tea that has undergone minimal oxidation during processing, resulting inunique catechins, especially epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). Green tea has half the caffeine of black tea and varies widely in appearance and taste. Our green tea captures the fresh clean air of high mountain tea gardens and defines how green tea should taste. Fresh harvested leaves are skillfully steamed, rolled and pan-fired in a wok for the ultimate cup.

I Wasn't Sure About This One
But, once I made the tea and tasted it, it won me over. This is much better iced, it has that refreshing taste that is better suited to iced tea. The flavor is a strong tropical colada. It needs little to no sweetener as it has a natural sweetness to it already. Also, I am not a big fan of green tea, but Tea Forte has begun to slowly, but surely win me over with both this tea and Lemon Sorbetti. I may actually try other green teas ....

Fabulous, LOVE this blend!!!
YUM. . . Coconut Mango Colada Green Tea, it's right up there with my favorite Orange Spice Black Tea. I like to experiment, so I mixed these 2 and it tastes SOOOO wonderful. As an added side effect, everyone that comes in my office, asks what the heavenly smell is. Hopefully I'm not committing some kind of Faux Pas, mixing a Green and Black tea together, SHHHHHSH, don't tell it will be our little secret, no one needs to know :) I wanted to comment on the review that said it tastes bitter, I'm guessing the tea was brewed to long. Cut the brewing time way back and and that should fix the bitter problem. When you shorten the time, if it doesn't seem strong enough for your liking, add more tea leaf. My personal Tea Success Formula is: More tea + Shorter brewing time = Perfect every cup every time. Also water temperature and quality are essential. (no microwaved water. . .YUCKY) Tea Forté, You hit a HOMERUN, this blend is one of your BEST!

Not what I expected.
I got no mango taste, but the coconut really does come through. I also thought it was herbal, but that is OK. I was hoping there would be strong fruity component, like a pina colada. It's more like coconut and hay. I do like the Coconut chai (not sure that is the exact name) very much. Milk might improve this. I say it is more coconut green tea and as that it works quite well. I guess I just feel like it is missing something. Still the coconut flavor is quite impressive. Coconut milk might be good in it as well.

Outstanding flavored tea
If you like mango and coconut, this is the tea for you. I really love the fact that these teas do not seem to leave a bad after taste, like many others I've tried. These are very bright teas with perfect flavor. This tea is a treat. Will be purchasing again.

It doesn't taste like it smells. The smell is absolutely delicious, but the taste is too bitter for me. I wish I could get my money back.

Outta this world good!
I cannot say enough about the Kati system in Coconut! All three tea samples are simply divine. So good in fact, that I soon ordered the green coconut in the canister after buying the system. I've truly never had tea this amazing. I am one of those tea-freaks that has tasted a good many brands, etc. and Tea Forte is light years ahead in taste and quality. If you love coconut, then all three of the selections will blow you away. The green coconut mango colada is one of the best teas I have ever tasted, period.

I am now a huge fan of Tea forte. I bought 2 boxes of the Coconut Mango Colada filtered bags on a whim because the aroma was incredible. I was not the least disappointed with the taste. I highly recommend this tea. It's one of the best I've ever tasted. I am "graduating" to the loose tea and will order some. If you love tropical favors of coconut and mango you will not be disappointed. I'm enjoying a cup right now!! Try it - you will love it!

It just smells DELiSH !
This loose tea blend is my number one favorite. I am also a fan of Cherry Marzipan and Lychee but this coconut mango colada is the BEST ! Everyone that tries it says that it takes them away to an island...pretty powerful tea experience! I wish so much that this tea came in a canister! Try it today you will not be disappointed.

Since I became a consumer of Tea Forte's products -- about six months ago -- I have greatly enjoyed their tea bags of Cherry Marzipan and Lychee Coconut. (I wasn't consuming it for its purported "skin" properties. I was just interested in the flavors which, by the way, are yummy.) I then "graduated" to the loose-leaf form of these two teas. Although they did take a bit more time to prepare and cleanup afterwards, the loose leaf form did taste somewhat more robust. I just finished my third mug of Tea Forte's new loose-leaf green tea, Coconut Mango Colada. It is absolutely dee-liciious! Even better tasting than the two previous teas I mentioned above. I STRONGLY encourage those who like the taste of each of the three "parts" of the name (coconut, mango, and pina colada plus a gentle "hint" of vanilla and lime) to give this tea a try. I'll be back for more! And, to be fair, I am a big fan of all those five flavors so I was an easy "mark" for this tea. :-))

The caffeine level in a cup of tea can vary by tea type, steeping practices and even the particular tea harvest. We use the following designations as guidelines for the caffeine levels of our teas:
Robust, high caffeine teas; 50-100mg
Lower caffeine teas with shorter steeping times; 30-50mg
Tea/herbal blends with less than 30mg
Decaf tea retains a tiny amount of caffeine
Herbal teas are 100% caffeine free
These steeping guidelines produce the best results for our palates. Use them as a guideline, but you may certainly experiment and find the best results for yours.
