I’m not supposed to be buying any more tea, but I can never pass up a sale, and it was all of $2 for 2 ounces of this. I mean, that’s just impossible to resist! Plus with summer at full blast, I need some nice tropical teas and take my mind of the suffocating heat for a while. It’s so hot that our local squirrel is laying spread-eagle on the fire escape and is too lazy to even move if I open the window.
Anyway, I made this last night for the bf and he loved it, but I only had a little sip so I decided to re-steep it this afternoon. The flavors are just as strong on the second steep, which is always a goof sign with a flavored blend. There are big chunks of pineapple and coconut in there, and they are sweetened according to the packaging but thankfully this is definitely not overly sweet. This has such a nice tropical flavor, though the coconut is more dominant than than the pineapple. It’s surprisingly good hot—usually blends this fruity I only drink iced, but this is good both ways. Mostly because they used a pretty tasty black base that comes in at the end of the sip. Though with it being 100 degrees outside and all this will definitely make it into the iced tea rotation (probably with a splash of rum!).
