I’ve had this tea once before, but I don’t think I logged it. So I will this time! I love that the Bestseller sampler has so many caffeine free options, I need more non caffeinated teas haha. Anyways, dry, this smells nice and coconutty, definitely tropical. I went with a long steep time as that seems to be what the majority of people on here do with this one, it was about 9 and a half mins. The brewed aroma is coconut and pineapple, sending me back to Mexico with my coconut sunscreen and double pina coladas :D woot!
As for the flavor, this is pretty good, I get the pina colada feel, although it is lighter than I thought it would be. The pineapple is surprisingly prominent, it’s not a pure coconut tea for sure, nothing like some of the DavidsTea coconut teas anyways. The honeybush is still in there too, which is nice. The only thing I’m a bit iffy about is that I get a bit of that sunscreen flavor..it’s a of the texture I guess, it feels a bit oily but the tea itself isn’t at all. Just the sensation. But it’s light enough that I still am enjoying this cup, and it’s putting me in a tropical state of mind. As I continue to listen to Christmas carols nonetheless lol..I bet this would be good with a bit of milk, sweetner, and maybe a touch of rum. Will have to try that at some point!
