Had this iced and it’s all right. Love the blend of tropical flavors and the smooth, lingering coconut finish. Not my favorite iced tea though and a little pricey because the ingredients are so heavy.
“A delicious piña colada iced tea! I got this as part of a clearance sale over the winter and saved it up for the summer. Sadly, I don’t think they have this flavor anymore… 10 oz...” Read full tasting note

“A sample from Miss B! Another David’s blend I’ve heard good things about but not tried before – until now! I used 2 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 4 minutes...” Read full tasting note
“I wasn’t a fan of this one…it had a funny smell and and taste. I think I may have to give the rest of it away, but I may want to try it one more time and shorten the steeping time…” Read full tasting note
Calling all beach bunnies…you are going to flip out over this tea. It’s amost excellent blend of tropical fruit, coconut and spices. It’s sweet and mega creamy, just like a totally primo piña colada. And if you really want to get amped, try freezing it into ice cubes and putting them in your blender with agave and a little coconut milk. It’s, like, off the wall. Take it from the big kahuna: this is one wave you definitely want to ride. Toes on the nose, dudes!

I had a little bit of this (2tsp) left over from making my fiance iced tea last night. Since I didn’t see any star anise in it, I decided I’d try this hot and see if I liked it over the chilled version.
Without the star anise, this is very juicy pineapple, and the pina colada smell holds true in the taste. I actually like it a lot. Probably not enough to order this for myself, but definitely enough to finish off the leftovers again.
I was really hoping that this would be a replacement for my beloved, discontinued, Kanpe. It’s not.
This is pina colada with a hint of spice. It’s really really sweet. I cold steeped this overnight and then some. Lots of pineapple, lots of coconut and just a hint of something in the back. Not quite sure on the spice, but it’s just a hint. This tastes like a Davids tea. There is something about their coconut that makes all those types taste the same.
If you like, pineapple and coconut you will like this.
It’s good for a hot summer’s night (would be better if I had some rum to put in it).
Thanks so much TheTeaFairy for sharing this with me.
Chocolate?! So weird.
I guess someone tasted that somehow??
I cold brewed this and when I drank it I got nothing but piña colada. I’m being truthful. Maybe some spices to give it a bit of richness and a little kick.
My all time favorite tea to cold brew is Davidstea’s Tropicalia, and I’m guessing they came out with this one for 2014 instead of bringing back Tropicalia, like they should have.
But since they didn’t, this one will have to do.
As far as a piña colada iced tea, this one is yummy.
I will buy some more to have for the rest of the summer!
Thank you VariaTEA for the sample. I likely would have been too stubborn to go and get some for myself otherwise (it’s the raisins, man!). What’d I do without you?
I’m only somewhat regretting cold brewing it all while I was sick: it was a little hard to get any nuances it may have had while I was heavily medicated at work today. What I did pick up on what some serious creamy vanilla coconut notes and buttery, tropical feeling apple/mango notes. And is there seriously no pineapple in this!? How can you market it as a “Pina Colada” tea when there’s no pineapple? That seems really, really wrong to me.
But it was good. I may need to pick up a small sample again some time when I’m not sick so I can get a proper taste of it, because I feel like I missed out on things I should have picked up, like cinnamon or star anise.
Reserving my rating until I’ve tried it not sick. Pretty sure I still like Tropicalia a lot more though…
This tea was super delicious. I went to the store and had it iced. The coconut and chocolate flavors were so yummy. Something was a little bitter which I did not care for, but I did not want to sweeten it since I had a bad experience with too much agave in the past (see Midsummer’s Night Dream). Next time I may add a sprinkle of Splenda but I am looking forward to drinking this again. Or another coconut chocolate tea, like Chocolate Macaroon! That tea is sooooo on my wishlist.

Damn you Sil for suggesting this when it came out. I’ve gone through 350g of this so far (so wish I was joking!) as both hot and iced, although right now it’s mostly just iced. Needs no sweetener, and it really is an amazing pina colada tea with a hint of spices, like spiced rum. I want to try and make this as a slushy, rum pina colada cocktail… but I drink it too fast to get that far.
Flavors: Coconut, Hibiscus, Pineapple, Sweet
