PiNa CoLaDa!
Too much hibby!!!! yikes. but then I added some honey and it mellowed out a bit. Still super tart, but not in a sour kid way anymore.
Anyhow, thanks so much for the sample Azzrian!! I can really see where this one goes wrong for you. It smells a little gnarly, but the taste is more or less great… except for the teeny little bump when I swallow, where I get a hint of backass in the flavour.
I think it’s the pineapple, and how it’s blending with the hibby. Coconut is in there to somewhere. When I pick out the flavours, they are not making friends! it’s almost as if there is a wall of garbage up between them, but there are stunning gardens on either side!! how odd.
When it was super hot, it was actually really good. Now that my cup is cooling I can see how other reviewers might think it’s terrible. I better drink this one up fast now! gulp

Missy backass as opposed to frontass?
DaisyChubb

this is such an intriguingly strange blend, I love reading your guys’ reviews for it. Taking one for the team! :D

Indigobloom

Missy: yup, I stand by it! I don’t wanna know what frontass is like haha
DaisyChubb: it is very strange indeed! I definitely won’t be buying any… but I am glad to have seen what all the fuss was about. One of those it’s so bad I have to try it scenarios. ha!

Missy

LOL!!

Yogini Undefined

LOL great review, made me laugh so thanks! teehee backass :D

ScottTeaMan

Ass backwards would be a frontass right!?!

Missy

Totally!

Indigobloom

Yogini: it made me giggle just writing about that… :P
ScottTeaMan: well I suppose so yah!! except… it sounds so much worse haha

Kittenna

Yuck. I can’t believe you liked this one. Should I save the rest of my sample package for you? I was going to throw it away. It literally makes me gag to think about it. I hope you don’t get an upset stomach! :P

Indigobloom

lol errr thanks for thinking of me! I think this one is best for the compost! my stomach was ok, this time… ha.

Kittenna

Hahaha :P To the compost it shall go.

Indigobloom

Oh Adagio… whatever made you think this was a good idea?!

Missy

Let me just say tea foot bath! For those teas you wouldn’t give to some one else, I throw some tea in hot water and soak my feet in it. It makes my feet smell nice while they soak at least. :D

Indigobloom

huh, I like that idea Missy!!!
but for a tisane… does that make them sticky? lol

Missy

I’ve never had them go sticky. I’ve tried a couple of teas and I think the one had some fruit but not a lot. I do suggest a rinse after even with out fruit. The leaves tend to get in between toes, or on the top of your foot when you try to get out of the bath.

Indigobloom

neat-o. Now I just need a bin to soak in. My bathtub won’t work because I don’t want any tea getting in the little jet holes.
oooh, epsom salts and tea! :P

Missy

Yeah I don’t use the bath tub either. A large bucket works well. Then you can get your ankles too.

Indigobloom

yeah. It feels like something I should do at the cottage :P

I’ve heard terrible things about this tea, so it was with trepidation that I opened the packet. I think we’re okay, though. I can smell warm, ripe pineapple, coconut, and a sort of slightly sour red berry scent. I’m guessing it’s the hibiscus or the rose hip, although I don’t think it’s decidedly either. The dry mix taken together does have a bit of an odd scent, but, to be honest, I find that with most Adagio teas.

So, on to the tasting. Brewed, this smells mostly of pineapple, with a bit of an undertone from the hibiscus. I don’t think there’s anything I can’t smell hibiscus in, when it’s there. I was hoping the pineapple scent would come through into the taste, but it doesn’t really. Dasappointingly, as it smells almost like the real thing — and amazingly juicy to boot. Instead, this tea tastes primarily of coconut. There’s an odd berry-like taste in the background which is throwing me a little, but it’s not unpleasant.

After everything I’ve heard and read, I’m glad this tea turned out to be drinkable. Pineapple is one of my favourite flavours, so I’ve been looking forward to this for a while. It’s a shame the pineapple doesn’t really come out too much in the taste, but the smell is completely mouthwatering. The only thing I really can’t detect is the apple, but I guess I can live without that. I might take this to work tomorrow and try it with some honey, but I’m pretty happy with the way this turned out. One of Adagio’s better fruit blends, I think.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Kittenna

I’m pretty sure there were batch issues with this one. I was one of the people who brewed up a horribly nasty cup of this, so much so that Adagio is probably blacklisted from me forever…

Scheherazade

Even now, it has a slightly funky taste (and smell) about it. I think it’s just the way the pineapple/coconut are interacting with the hibiscus and rosehip (really not a happy combination…), but I could be wrong. I’m sure you’re right about the batch issues, though. My cup was nowhere near as bad as yours sounds. I was worried about it right before I tried it, because it sounds so nice and I wanted to like it. I’m glad I do (or more or less, anyway!). I’m not a big Adagio fan, but if this had been terrible it probably would have been the last straw for me, too. It’s a shame when bad things happen to good tea!

This is the lowest rating I have ever left for a tea and the only tea I have ever had to dump out but only after gagging on it. I honestly am so so sorry Adagio all of your other teas have been anywhere from good to excellent but this one I just don’t know. Anyone want it?
I won’t even say what it both smelled and tasted like but I see it gets some good to excellent ratings so hey maybe its me.

Scott B

did it taste like pineapple and cococnut?

Blake

I consider myself lucky I haven’t had an experience like that yet.

Azzrian

No it tasted like what I about did when I sipped it.

Indigobloom

errrr, yeah I’ve had bad luck with Pina Coladas as well! I think Teaopia has a decent one. or had one anyhow.

Pina Colada night, apparently. Went out for drinks for a friend’s birthday and had a virgin one (I was driving), and came home and decided to brew up the three different versions I have to try.

First up, Adagio’s. Thanks for the sample, Azzrian. :)

Smells kind of sweet dry, but with a gross fermenting fruit sort of flavour. Makes me a gag a bit, actually. Steeped…. it smells rather like vomit. I’m sorry, but that’s truly the only way to describe it.

!@#*#()$&() This is absolutely DISGUSTING. I can’t even….

Azzrian, I completely understand why you rated this a 1. It tastes. Like vomit.

I think there is something seriously wrong with this tea. I think you/we should contact them about it, because this is the most disgustingly vile tea I have ever had the misfortune of tasting. I know i only asked for it because of curiousity as to how something could be that bad, but I didn’t imagine quite how bad it would be.

I actually gulped a bit down and am starting to feel sick to my stomach. Whether that’s simply concern over what I just ingested or what, I don’t know.

I still have some of the sample left if Adagio wants to take a look at it for themselves…. this is NOT right.

TeaBrat

the pineapple kona pop from Teavana is disgusting too

Azzrian

See that is the word I left out of my rating but yes VOMIT all the way. OMG it is horrid just HORRID!!!!!!!!!

LiberTEAS

OK… Vomit flavored tea just doesn’t sound good.

Kittenna

It was awful. I feel like they may have gotten a rotten batch of something and put it into the blend. And given my somewhat upset stomach afterward, I am definitely rather concerned.

Ninavampi

Sounds so gross…. And I just bought some that I havent tried yet…. :S

Kittenna

It was awful. I think there’s something wrong with a batch, because there are positive tasting notes about this blend. I would suggest that if you open the packet and it smells rotten at all, or if you steep it and it smells gross, maybe don’t drink it. And for heaven’s sake, don’t swallow it if it tastes gross!! :)

Azzrian

To be honest, I have not ordered ANYTHING from Adagio since this happened. I probably won’t ever again. Something like this can really destroy a companies image – for me anyway. The fact that something like this could pass their inspection – assuming they have one – and be shipped out. Unacceptable!

I cold brewed this one today because I don’t dare try it hot. Too much hibiscus.. It actually turned out very nice. It has nice pineapple and coconut flavor. The hibiscus adds a touch of tartness and gives it a nice edge. Very refreshing. I’m actually tempted to try making it a little stronger and adding a splash of rum..

Ze_Teamaker

Too bad the rum is always gone.

KallieBoo!

Why is the rum always gone.. D:

Singing*: “If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain…!”

Ahem. Excuse the little musical interlude. But seriously, that song runs through my head every time I drink this. It’s a good thing. Sort of.

We’ve had a few deliciously warm days (shockingly early for us Northeners) and this tea is perfect for this kind of weather. It makes me think of summer, which is funny because I don’t think I’ve ever drank an actual Pina Colada (during the summer or otherwise), so I guess it’s just the fruity-creamy flavour with the of coconut-suntan oil scent that make me think summer.

Since I don’t know what actual Pina Coladas taste like I’m not qualified to compare, but this tea tastes like fruity coconut. I assume the fruity notes come from the pineapple, apples, rose hip and maybe hibiscus flowers? The coconut flavour is easier to explain and I like the description of it as “savory”. It’s sweet. It’s rich. It’s creamy. It gives you that decadent almost brothy mouthfeel that makes this feel much thicker then your average tea. It’s OILY. And it’s delicious! Which is funny because I don’t like solid coconut (icky texture!), but mmmm the taste in this tea is wonderful!

I found the rich-sweet-oily taste balanced very well with the more tart fruit flavours (apple is the one that came through most clearly for me, not surprising because there were tons of chunks of dried apple in this tea). I’m very tempted to try Adagio’s coconut-only flavoured tea since it’s the coconut in this one that I found really unique and great, but I do wonder if it would taste as good (or maybe become cloying) without the fruit complement.

I’ve made this by following the tin’s instructions (I think seven minutes and slightly below boiling but I don’t have the tin here to be sure), and also by massively oversteeping it with boiling water (who me? lazy?). Both turned out great. In fact I didn’t really notice any difference at all, which makes me love this tea even more for being so forgiving.

So if you like coconut, or pinapple, or apple or especially if you like all three…try this tea!

Wanders off singing*: “Then I’m the love that you’ve looked for, write to me and escape…!”

*The term “singing” is used very loosely. VERY.

I tried this tea from a sample I purchased. I drank it hot and added some German Rock Sugar. It is nice and fruity, smooth taste. I think I would really like this tea on ice. I believe I will try that next time.

I did try it iced and I liked it even more.

The perfect blend on an incredibly snowy day. A bit tart but sooo good! And I’m def not a fan of Pina Coladas in general.

It has a sour fruity scent. I bought this thinking i would taste alot of pineapple but you don’t. Just a little tangy tartness flavor at the end. I had been drinking so much hot tea cause is winter, but i made this cold, as i prefer fruty tea over ice. And its really enyoable.

This had a very strong and really bad smell when I first opened the bag. It took me a while to pin it down, but it’s the smell of a really solid blue cheese when it’s ripe. Now, I like blue cheese, but not in my tea. The smell toned down some with steeping (and after letting the bag air out a bit) but was still present. It was easily enough to put me off the whole cup.
