Today has been a pretty rainy and blah day. And then a package came in the mail – surprise! Oh how I love to check the mail! My fiancee ordered me a really nice stethoscope for nursing school. AND it’s a sparkly pink color. AND he engraved it. So sweet! I was totally surprised and love it so much. He will be getting a big hug when he comes home from St. Louis tomorrow! :)
This tea is a cup of comfort for me. I wasn’t expecting much when I first purchased it, and the only reason I did purchase it was because it was decaf. It’s so wonderful, though – all sweet, warm pina colada flavors. It’s really soothing with a little milk. You can’t really taste a lot of the black tea base, but it’s there enough. This reminds me of drinking suntan lotion. That sounds odd, but it just makes you feel like you’re at the beach on a sunny day, sipping a pina colada.
-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves and twigs with pieces of dried pineapple.
-Dry leaves smell tropical and sweet. Tea liquor aroma is of black tea and sweet coconut.
-Tea liquor is a clear dark brown color.
-Light pina colada flavor and finish. Tropical and sweet aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. A mellow and soothing cup.
