drank Pina Colada Honeybush by 52teas
255 tasting notes

I have not yet tried this iced. It’s delicious hot. It smells exactly like a good pina colada with real pineapple. The taste of pineapple is strong and true. When I added milk and sugar on the second infusion, the creaminess really came out to play and I thought that the faint strains of a mariachi band were emanating from my mug. A cold January night became a little bit sultry and tropical (in my mouth and heart, at least).

53teas is very strong on flavor, which makes them a favorite with me.

And tonight, in honor of spring, I tried this iced. Very nice. I made about 24 ounces and added only one brown sugar cube. Most certainly this will save so many calories! It holds up quite well; I think that the flavor “pops” more when it is hot, however.

I wonder how this would be steeped in coconut water.

You found an extra week in the year. We are just 52teas, not 53. =)

But thanks so much for the kind words and nice review. I’m glad you are enjoying it. This is one of my personal favorites.

Bio

I really love big, bold, brash teas. Smokiness enthralls me. I don’t seem to do subtle.
I don’t do rooibos.

My rating system:
0-30:
Never again in a hundred million years

31-55: This tea probably has some redeeming qualities but I won’t would not seek it out again.

56-70:
Shows some promise but also has a fundamental flaw. I probably owe these a second taste but am unmotivated.

71-80:
Good with at least one strong quality; I probably would not buy it but would drink it cheerfully.

81-90: Worthy contenders; they might be ranked 100 on somebody’s else’s scale. I like them a lot but have not fallen in love. Will probably buy and use.

91-95: These are the true loves, the chosen ones, the ones I dream about and crave. Unless they are in a limited edition—la! how you tease me!—I will always keep in my cupboard.

96-100: I cannot be separated from these teas and would develop a panic attack if I were to run out.
