Making sure that the temperature is right certainly makes a difference with this tea. If you brew it with too hot water, it’s bitter and thick and must either be watered down or mixed with something to be drinkable (I usually use lemonade).

When brewed with the correct temp, it’s still thick, but not bitter. The pineapple is the most prominent note, then coconut, followed by a healthy taste of rum. The green tea base is almost lost, but there’s a grassy note in the aftertaste that let’s you know it was there. Not my favorite of Zhena’s, but if you like coconuts and rum, it’s worth a try.

Edited because I can’t type or spell right now.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
