This was my first time trying The Thirsty Buddha coconut water. Usually purchased Blue Monkey brand. The Thirsty Buddha tastes fine, is all natural without any additives, however, I find the coconut flavour is not as pronounced as Blue Monkey's, which also is additive-free. Thirsty Buddha comes in a larger format though and is less expensive. I am going to try some other brands in same price range/quality to see if one of them has a flavour which matches Blue Monkey's, my preference to date.
