Drank my first cup of this last night. I’m really beginning to appreciate honeybush/rooibos blends before bed, and this is a particularly nice one. I’m beginning to suspect that, generally speaking, pineapple and coconut teas are not for me. I like both in actuality, pineapple particularly, but when they’re put together in tea they seem to take on a pukey kind of flavour. I have no idea why, but it’s definitely off-putting.
Anyway, I was a little worried about trying this tea for that exact reason. Fortunately, though, it doesn’t seem to happen here. I can taste the coconut first, but I love that the pineapple comes over so clearly as well. Maybe I like this blend where I haven’t liked others because there’s no hibiscus? I’ll pay more attention in future to the precise kinds of pineapple/coconut teas that I don’t like, and try and work that out. I’m not always a fan of honeybush either, but here it’s just perfect. A sweet, unobtrusive companion to the sweet, juicy tropical fruit flavours.
I’m glad I picked this one up. I can see it being a welcome companion on summer evenings!
