I can see why they call it Piña colada, and i’m sure if it were iced it would taste just like it! I was impressed with this one, as I will have more of it as time goes on. The pinapple flavoring was more of the candied pineapple taste but the coconuttiness was just right :)
I’m going to say that the pineapple was overpowering the coconut, 90-10. which was unfortunate, nonetheless solid,eventful tea. I noticed that it was green rooibos instead of what I usually have ( red rooibos ) I just find that it has more of a tea flavor if that makes any sense, as red lets the flavor do the talking and green lets the tea do the talking.
Interesting tea, will try again.. ICED!
Drink it in
The spring of 1954 saw Ramon “Monchito” Marrero (who?) pacing back and forth behind the Beachcomber Bar in Puerto Rico. Three months later, he poured the world’s first Piña Colada, ostensibly for a Hollywood starlet basking on the beach. Half a century on, here we are with our own (slightly healthier) adaptation of his drink. Pineapple, coconut and green rooibos. Thanks Ramon. We love you.
