After reading the other tasting notes I definitely wish I had coconut rum and cream on hand… sailor jerry’s and 1% milk just doesn’t sound quite as good. The first time I tried Tropicalia, it didn’t really impress me but I think I expected the taste to be more pineapple-y than pina colad-y (very technical terms, I know :) Today I was looking for a caffeine free option to enjoy while winding down after work and I am glad I gave this another go. And I have actually added more hot water to my french-press mug so I must reeeeeeally have changed my mind about this one. I am just letting it steep away between sips, although much weaker flavour it still made a second great cup of tea. I am looking forward to having this iced, which will probably use up the rest of my pkg and I will probably pick up some more when re-stocking next. The hearts are a cute touch but like other tea lovers had noted before me the blend is a little on the heavy side. It has a baked-good like smell at first and tasted fruity, sweet and a little creamy too.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes pina coladas, fruity light herbal teas and picturing themselves on the beach.
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.
