In one cup, you'll get the dense, creamy texture of fresh coconut with the balanced brightness and tang of Ceylon black tea. This Coconut blend showcases a perfectly sweet, warm and aroma, as well as a soft finish. Such a well-blended flavor, it's like they never existed without each other.

The origin of coconut remains a mystery. However, many historian believe that the earliest coconuts grew in Malaysia and Indonesia. Its earliest written record appears in Sanskrit, revealing that the people of India were exposed to this fruit. Coconut images may also be found in pre-Columbian pottery unearthed in Peru. Marco Polo made a note of his encounter with the fruit when visiting India. He called it 'Pharoah's nut.' Other travelers were equally impressed. Coconuts feature prominently in the journals of Magellan and Francis Drake.
