Loose Leaf Coconut Tea
A Tropical Vacation for the Senses – No Passport Needed!
So, Coconuts, Huh?
You probably know that coconuts are the fruit from the coconut palm tree. Coconut palms are grown in more than 90 countries, with a total annual production over 60 million tons. Almost 3/4 of the world’s production comes from tropical Asia, including Indonesia, the Philippines, and India.
We say heck yes to coconut! It’s like taking your taste buds on an island vacation! And unlike some tropical beverages, CommuniTea Center’s coconut teas do not taste like sunscreen! Instead, the natural coconut flavor is light, sweet, and refreshing.
Did You Know…?
The word “coconut” comes from the 16th-century term coco, meaning “head” in Spanish or Portuguese. Apparently, explorers at that time thought that coconut fruits looked like heads.
Tall coconut trees (Cocos nucifera var. typica) can grow nearly 100 feet tall! They produce their first fruit in 6-10 years, but reach peak production in 15-20 years. In ideal conditions, a single tree can produce up to 75 coconut fruits each year.
Coconuts are one of Mother Nature’s most versatile gifts. People commonly use its oil and milk for cooking, as well as an ingredient in soaps and cosmetics. Its husks and leaves can become a variety of product for furnishing, like ropes, mats, brushes, and sacks, plus caulking for boats, or stuffing fiber for mattresses.
In parts of Thailand and Malaysia, trained monkeys (pig-tailed macaques) will harvest coconuts!
