This has a strong pineapple and coconut fragrance and taste. It’s really sweet and fruity and very easy to drink. While H&S Bangkok tends more towards the coconut side, this one leans heavily towards the pineapple and guava. It’s listed as a black and green blend but I’ve found that it tastes better if you treat it like a green tea and use a mild temperature and shorter steeping time.

Maybe I should have tried steeping it like a green, they sent me a sample a long time ago and I didn’t like it, but I like all those flavors so I really should have enjoyed it.

I accidentally made this with boiling water the other day and it was horrible. I tried it again with cooler water and it was pretty good so this one is definitely temp sensitive.
