I picked this up in my first ever Adagio store outing after a friend I was with picked up the jar, smelled it, made a face and told me to not do it. I, being the contrary person I am, of course picked up the canister and took a whiff. I didn’t think it was that bad and I ended up picking up a bag. Unfortunately this is the tea whose memory will forever remind me to buy samples first.
The coconut was a bit stronger in the bag when I first opened it, but I could smell the pineapple as well, so I brewed up a batch.
Not what I was expecting, but certainly not as bad as I was thinking it would be after reading some of the reviews here. But within 5-10 min of first drinking this, I got the most godawful headache and proceeded to be ill for the rest of the night. And I’m positive it was the tea since I hadn’t eaten/drank anything I hadn’t had before.
I’m not sure if it was a bad batch, or just whatever they used for the flavoring reacted badly with me, but it was one of the worst experiences I’ve had with a tea since I started drinking it.
