This tea is better served cold IMO although tonight I’m feeling like something warm and floral/fruity – so Kokomo does the trick.

I had a heavy Easter dinner and this is hitting the spot right now – it always reminds me of tropical-scented perfume… it’s got a very strong scent.

I snagged this from a friend’s tea collection last time we hung out, without knowing anything about it. It smelled yummy.

I was a little worried about how it was going to turn out, given all the bad reviews here and the low rating. I’d also grabbed Aloha Puer at the same time and that was awful.

No worries though – this is actually quite delicious. Very tropical, fruity and not at all generic tasting like many fruity green teas. There are distinct notes of pineapple, papaya and mango, and a well balanced rose flavour that makes this pretty unique among the flavoured greens in my collection.

The green tea flavour is pretty subtle – it’s there, but the fruit and floral notes take centre stage here.

I’m pretty impressed with how well this has aged and how much I’m enjoying it.

Aloha Pu’Erh is the second lowest rated DT blend on Steepster, the worst one being Cherry Cola. I’ve never had Aloha Pu’Erh (though I’ve smelled it and it smelled so wrong) – but I have had Cherry Cola, and it definitely is worthy of its rating.

OMGsrsly

Cherry Cola was… there are no words.

Anlina

Wow. I’m impressed that something managed to get a worse overall rating than Aloha Puer, which was all fish and dirt milkshake for me.

Anlina

Hah, it’s the second lowest rated tea on Steepster and the lowest rated on that has any tasting notes. http://steepster.com/teas?page=1311

Sipdown!

This tea did grow on me as I made my way through it. It definitely is much better cold brewed. Even then, it still tastes kind of bitter and plant-like. Nice papaya note too though. Still, there are better teas to get papaya from. Won’t be buying more of this.

Flavors: Fruity, Plants

It’s already feeling like summer here. Where did winter go? Did it really happen this year? Who knows…

This is an appropriately summery green tea blend with flower petals and dried fruit mixed in. The aroma is sweet pineapple and a whiff of other tropical fruit. The tea base didn’t really come through after steeping. It’s definitely fruit and sweet, but in a candy-like, slightly artificial way. It might be good as an iced beverage or tea soda, but as a hot (now warm) brew it’s a bit too sweet for me. It reminds me of one of DAVIDs other blends that is just pieces of fruit…I can’t quite remember the name right now. Thanks beelicious for the sample, there are (really) just a few left to try now :)

beelicious

LOL – it’s like the neverending bag of tea :)

This tea has a decided sour note to it. I don’t know what the sourness it but it is prevalent.

I brewed this tea once in an 18 oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and 160 degree water for 3 min.

Flavors: Sour

160 °F / 71 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 18 OZ / 532 ML

You are not alone. I couldn’t get over the bitterness of this tea. :P

AllanK

It smelled good too, that is the sad part. I am trying to drink more greens because of the caffeine element but I find them hit or miss.

TeaBrat

Flavored green teas can be really problematic if they are not done well. ;-/

I had bought this to make iced tea and it was a mistake. I should have been more careful reading the label because the three different types of flower petals should have been a tip-off. This tea is SO floral. I’m working my way through the little tin I got on sale, but it’s not great. It seems to work a bit better as hot tea; something about the chilling really seems to bring out the floral notes.

Flavors: Floral, Flowers

If nothing else, as I brewed this tea up yesterday, I realized I know all of the words to “Kokomo” by The Beach Boys (or the Muppets, depending on your childhood). Hot, I did not care for this at all. But then I coldbrewed it overnight and the coldbrew is lovely and fruity and delicious. It’s juicy and definitely quenching my thirst. Delicious.

Anlina

I too could probably sing most, if not all, of that song.

I know it better from the Muppets :)

It’s bitter no matter what I do to it so it’s a nope. And I’m already sick of the smell.

ETA: a 30 second steep resulted in a drinkable but heavily flowery brew. Eh.

I don’t know why this tea has such a bad rating, ‘cause I love it. It’s fresh, delicious, it tastes like it smells – what more can you ask? Favourite part is the almost champagne-like aftertaste.
