I got this when Nicole was clearing out her stash. I looked at the leaf and couldn’t tell what it was. I thought it looked like a green with maybe some rooibos in the mix. It is very pretty with blue, yellow, and red petals in it. Turns out this is a white tea. Sooo I got the water waaay to hot. This didn’t care and did not get bitter (just dark). The taste first made me think alcoholic beverage. After I adjusted I realized it was creamy coconut but not the usual overwhelming coconut… and pineapple… My first reaction to pineapple was eeewww, I hate pineapple. Then I realized it goes really well with coconut. I found myself enjoying the cup. The white base could not really be singled out but it seemed to fill in the empty spots in the sip. Not something I would ever have picked up and tried on my own. Turns out I actually liked it. Thanks Nicole!

Edit – I can’t find this company on the web. The links take me to Miss Gloria’s Tea House. New owner? anyway, This blend does not appear be in their collection.
