drank Pina Colada Honeybush by 52teas
302 tasting notes

This tea is pretty amazing. It taste just like a pina colada. Since I usually only drink a pina colada when I am sitting by a pool, I wasn’t sure how I’d like it. I do like it though. It’s coconutty and then there is a sweetness from the pineapple. Not sure I am getting any rum flavoring.

The dry leaves are beautiful too. There are pretty shreds of coconut and giant pieces of dried pineapple.

The funny thing about this tea is that while I didn’t like the pineapple upside down cake tea, I really like this one and wish the cake tea had had this much pineapple flavor.

I’m definitely going to have to try this one iced. I wonder if it will be too much or if I will really feel like I am drinking a pina colada.

On a “rum flavoring” note, I had a killer rum (N/A) latte in Seattle last month. Sometimes recreating the flavor of an alcohol as well as the bite from the alcohol itself can be really hard, but they nailed it. So maybe hunt down a rum syrup? I think this would be amazing in slushie/granita form.

Maybe I’ll just add rum :) I’ve got a nice bottle of Black Seal for making Dark and Stormys.

Well yeah of course! I was just saying there can be amazing N/A rum flavored things out there:)
