Republic of Tea's new coconut tea was our favorite flavor of their white tea lineup. Why? The answer is simple: Coconut. This ingredient, which naturally has a very light flavor, combines very well with the unsweetened white tea. The white-labeled bottle appeals more to the eye than the original, more colorfully-designed varieties. Still, the question that remains for this product is whether its unsweetened flavor will resonate with mainstream consumers who, until recently, thought of sugary products like Snapple and Arizona as the highest-quality tea available. Tea purists (perhaps you can put us in that category) will, however, find answering that question extremely enjoyable. Overall, a great entry from The Republic of Tea.
