Is this really a Teavana blend with no tasting notes? How strange! I got this in a swap with Chuckieroy, apparently almost all the teas I requested were pineapple-based and I didn’t even notice it until now. I guess I’m on a pineapple kick? Honestly, I wanted to try this one because of the name and the little heart confetti. So cute!

Wow, this is pina colada in a cup. Strong pineapple and coconut notes that (for once!) don’t overpower the green base. It’s got some nice grassy notes along with a strong nuttiness that I find intriguing. Apparently it contains peanuts, though I swear there were none in the spoonful I brewed. And yet, the nuttiness is here! Not identifiable as an particular nut thankfully, it just adds a dimension of richness. And while there’s added sugar (from the heart candies) it’s not a sweet blend at all surprisingly. Much nicer than I was expecting! I could definitely see this being a go-t tea in the hot summer months.

It’s a Teaopia one, I know I’ve gotten it but just wrote the note under the Teaopia one

Hahaha, I was thinking exactly what momo said before I even read her comment.

Also…. a tea that contains peanuts?! Weird.

Ahh, that would explain why there’s no hibiscus. XD Actually this didn’t taste like a Teavana tea to me—I’ve tried a few of their pineapple blends and Love Spell is very different.

I heard a rumor they were discontinuing the Teaopia teas, but I’m not sure if there’s actually a source on that.

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
