From DAVIDsTEA

Your happy place

So you want to go somewhere really exotic this summer. A place where the sun is shining and the drinks are plentiful. Where the sands are white, the water is clear and the sky is blue. No problem. Just ice yourself a cup of this herbal blend. Not only does it taste just like a piña colada, it makes you feel as happy as one too. With pineapple, coconut and little sugar hearts, the only thing missing is the paper umbrella. And a bikini.

Ingredients: Apple, pineapple cubes, coconut, rose petals, safflower blossoms, sugar hearts, marigold petals, artificial flavouring*.

Allergens: Coconut, not vegan

SIPDOWN! I’m on a roll this week :) i cold brewed this overnight in the fridge, used up my bag, and it has so much flavor! Pineapple and coconut galore! Just like a lighter, better-for-me pina colada. Excellent. I might have to get more of this, as I enjoy it both hot and cold. Pretty sweet though so not an every day tea. See previous notes :)

Rationing the sample Amanda shared with me until my DT order gets here….

Wanted to log this tea cocktail to share. Brewed this up strong and put it in the fridge to chill overnight. (Sorry, I went a little willy nilly with the measurements this time.) Put in a little simple syrup, milk and coconut rum – HOLY COW! This is scary good!!!! Will do this again! :)

Pina Colada is my favorite flavour! My flavour favorite! So excited.

katgolik

Oh hell yes!!!!I LUST for pina colada favored anything..

katgolik

I wish I could marry all your tea..YES I SAID IT.

Kittenna

Haha, after my last experiment trying three Pina Colada teas in one night (after a real virgin pina colada), my stomach is churning a little… (but someone’s gotta make a good pineapple coconut tea eventually, right?!)

Amariel

Is this herbal or tea based?

heeey! This is pretty good! This is another David’s Tea that I was convinced I didn’t need to try. Then came all those gushing reviews. Ack! The first day I went to pick up a sample of this, it was completely sold out. Apparently, it was sold out within three days. Three days! How does NYC already have such a huge DT following? There must be a ton of Canadian expats or something. But anyway, they finally restocked and I snagged a 1 oz sample size.

I just used all of it to make one potful with 4.5 cups of water. Clearly, one would need quite a bit of dry tea to keep up a Tropicalia habit. I plan to chill this pot and drink it tomorrow. :) Even though the weather has cooled down enough now that it’s possible to drink hot teas, I feel that this one would benefit from a chilling. I am sampling a bit of it hot now, just to see how it is.

I must admit, the brewed tea looks disturbingly like soup. It’s a rich yellow-y orange and there’s a nice layer of oil floating on top. I’m sure it’s from the coconut, so I’m not worried, but man, this looks like soup! I expect to stir it up a bit and find onion pieces in there. Speaking of which, I ate some of the tea after brewing. the little pineapple bits were the best! :)

This tea is surprisingly sweet all by itself. I suspect it’s all the dried fruit pieces. I can definitely taste the apple and the pineapple with a yummy coconut richness in the background. This also reminds me a bit of amaretto. Just a bit, but enough to convince me that a splash of amaretto would be amazing. maybe with a bit of sugar and cream. The tea person that sold me this said he liked it with Bacardi. I’m sure that would be great too. :)

My only complaint? You need too much tea to make your drink. I probably won’t be getting more of this.

I’ll rate this once I’ve had it chilled. For now, it’s time to make dinner!

Kittenna

Best new tea by far. But yes, a bit expensive because it’s so heavy and you need to use so much.

I received this sample with my recent Davids order. I wasn’t so excited about it, until I opened up the little wrapper and smelled wonderful piña colada! The tea smelled like nutty coconut and sweet pineapple. The flavor was good, tart and sweet and fruity. There is a creamy piña colada aftertaste that is very nice. I added some milk and sugar, which made it nice and creamy. Even though I added only a little milk, I think I would add a little less next time because it sort of overwhelmed the other flavors. The creaminess that it adds to the cup is worth it, though!

-Dry blend has a mixture of large pieces of dried fruit, rose petals, yellow petals, small reddish orange petals and small red hearts.
-Dry leaves smell like creamy piña colada. Tea liquor aroma is of nutty coconut and pineapple.
-Tea liquor is a clear bright medium yellow color.
-Slightly tart and sweet fruity flavor and finish. Creamy piña colada aftertaste.
-Best with sweetener. Smallest amount of milk optional.
-Very good tea. Sweet coconut and pineapple piña colada flavor. Becomes creamy with a little added milk.

I tried it in the store, and wish I bought some.

Holy heck – this is one of the best darn teas I’ve ever had! It tastes like pina coladas, like a tropical vacay, like Californian summers… Great hot and FABULOUS iced! Another new cupboard essential. I drink this down in three gulps, reinfused and (im)patiently waited for it to cool to try it “iced.” SO yummy!

Alphakitty

This one is SO GOOD, I could honestly drink it every day and be happy (but broke).

Sare

I will have to invest in this one!!!

Phew, I was tired this morning and so zoned out. I drank my guayusa, tealogged it, got trampled on by my bunny, cleaned and then plotted my husband’s christmas gift.
Behold! Dinosaur pajamas! http://wholesale7.net/images/201110/goods_img/12965_P_1319441471958.jpg
Yeah, I’m weird. I’m hoping he’ll dance around wearing it like this: http://youtu.be/bamYJaCpTqI
I got too much free time…..

Tropicalia has been haunting me for awhile. It’s sitting there in my “need to try” pile, unopened for a couple months now. I know I forgot about it for awhile, then recently I just keep putting it off. With the fall collection out now, I felt I needed to try this tea in the event I love it and need to buy more before it gets phased out.

DRY: Very sweet and pineapply with a hit of coconut. Almost a pina colada! Very cute sugar hearts in this!

STEEPED: Bright yellow and lovely pina colada smell! I snacked on 50% of the steeped fruits in my steeper, so much for a resteep!

TASTE: Gently sweet pineapple and apple with a great coconut aftertaste. The more I drink and the more it cools, Tropicalia gets more sweet and pineapply.
Note: I was really generous and did 2t for one cup of tea.

WHO’D LIKE THIS TEA: Pinacolada peeps, get on this now! Very good tea that has no caffeine but also no chamomile/rooibos.

COMMENTS: very tasty! The more I sip, the more I like this tea. I feel like I want to dance around drinking this wearing dinosaur pajamas. I’d love this tea to be stronger, maybe I’ll jack up the dry quantity some more.

I got a cold steeped going, hopefully it comes out good too!

Filled my $1 tumbler with this today. I was so happy to see Tropicalia as a TOTD, but was disappointed to find that it was sorely under steeped. It tasted like ice water with a hint of sweet pineapple-coconut. It was still nice and refreshing, but not what I was expecting having made it myself at home. Oh well! It got me through the melting heat while I was wandering around downtown.

tattooed_tea

I am not fond of the way they steep… or rather don’t steep your tea in store.

softrevolution

Same. If I’m getting a non-TOTD iced, I always ask them to steep it a little longer for me.

tattooed_tea

I was surprised when you get a hot tea they throw the leaves in a tea bag & throw the bag in your cup & off you go?

A sample of this tea came with my last Davids Tea order and right now it’s perfect iced tea weather (ie. blazing hot) so I gave it a try. There was only enough for a single cup, so I drank half of it hot and then stuck the rest in the fridge to get cold. I’ll be honest in that I wasn’t expecting too much (fruit teas often taste the same to me), but in the end I was pleasently surprised.

First of all – no hibiscus, yay! The flavour reminds me very closely of a pina colada (minus the rum) with just the right dash of sweetness that I didn’t need to add any agave nectar. I think I prefere it iced to hot but it’s very nice both ways. Next time I’m in Vancouver I’m going to see if I can pick up some more so I can make a jug of this stuff!
