A pretty tea, the leaves are greyish-green. It smells like a liqueur, though. Kind of different.

165/2 min. The scent is somewhat tropical. There’s the very sweet pineapple candy taste and perhaps an essence of coconut, but it’s not very clear. Overall, it’s an okay tea, but nothing really stands out. Into the compost after just one steep.

Oh no. No. This tea smells like a week old pina colada gone bad. Gave it a shot anyway. Boy was that a mistake. It tastes the way it smells. Horrible. Could not finish the cup. Now I have an oily funk in my mouth. If anyone wants what is left of this sample, I would be glad to send it out the door. Really.

Interesting…It smells of alcohol before and after the steep. I was not sure about this but it tasted nothing like it smelled…“Thank God!” However, it was still okay. I didn’t feel like it had a strong enough of a tropical taste. All around okay and I will finish off the sample but have no plans to purchase more.

This sounds like it would be really good sweetened and iced.

Erin, you may be right. I will have to give it a try and report back some time. Thanks for the suggestion.

This was much milder than Adagio’s Pina Colada – and that’s a good thing. Not my favorite tea, but not obnoxious like that colada.

When I first brewed a cup, I legitimately thought something was wrong with my mug, like it wasn’t washed or something. It just smelled terrible. Since it had only been in the cup for maybe 15 seconds, I brewed it again and realized no, that’s the tea.

I didn’t even finish it. It wasn’t bad but it just wasn’t worth braving the odd scent for a sip.

I got this tea because it sounded like it would taste like a pina colada tea. Meh! Anything but. Glad I only bought a sample.

I didn’t dislike this as much as I thought I would, but that isn’t really saying much. This is a really delicate blend and not at all what I was expecting. The only thing I taste is a rather sweet taste from the coconut flavoring. I’m not getting the rose petals or pineapple at all and as it cools I’m getting less and less of the coconut. On one hand I’m happy to see a tropical blend without the hibiscus, I just wish I liked it more, it really let me down by not having more of a fruit flavor present.

This tea is not quite what I’m expecting when I see that something has pineapple and coconut flavoring. Neither of those flavors were particularly apparent in the brewed tea, and while I definitely liked this better than Adagio’s White Pear, it’s not something I would order. It’s a generic white tea with a pineapple-ish flavor and coconut aftertaste.

After reading the reviews on here, I’m wondering if Adagio has changed something. The dry leaves smell overwhelmingly of coconut. I was worried about that since coconut is far from my favorite fruit. Once brewed, you can taste the floral fruitness and yes, lots of coconut. I don’t mind it, it definitely reminds me of a tropical vacation.

I bought a sample of this a few months ago. I tried it once when it arrived and didn’t finish the cup. I tried to drink it, but I just couldn’t get used to the taste – kind of harsh and chemical-ish. I want to try it again before I throw it out – to experiment with steeping time – but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.

The last of the new teas I’m going to try today.
The smell of the tea in the canister is fruity yet dark. Inviting but a little mysterious. Which is pretty impressive for a 2 inch sample tin of little green leaves.
Once brewed, the scent diminishes a little and almost acquired a very mild soapy overtone. (But in a good way, honest.) The flavor is definitely complex, and I’ll have to try this a few times before I can really describe it with justice. I tend to sweeten my tea, but I wanted to try the first sip of this unsweetened. It tasted almost woody. But I liked it. I then added a packet of splenda (as is my want with most tea). On second taste, it’s definitely over sweetened. So only half a packet next time. It’s got a bit of a creamy mouth-feel to it. As I am working through this cup, I find I’m liking it more and more.

I’ll try a second steeping tomorrow and see what I think then…
