I can’t believe there aren’t any tasting notes for this one!
I have to say… this one actually smells like a pina colada! Like, it smells like the drink I had tonight tasted! DELICIOUS! Sweet and pineapply and coconutty and rummy and good. Definitely most excited for this one!
Steeped, it still smells like a pina colada, but I’m getting more apple than I would like.
Ohhh why did they have to add hibiscus. sigh It’s tart, but luckily not too tart. And… it definitely tastes more like pina colada than either of the other two, but it’s still not quite right. Pina coladas are not tart, and do not contain a bunch of apple.
That all being said, this is a flavourful tisane that I won’t mind finishing off. However, the quest for a pina colada tea continues.
ETA: Ohhhh, my bad. Thanks to Fusion Tea Room for the generous sample!
ETA again: Finishing the cold cup this morning (since last night I felt pretty gross after the Adagio tea, I didn’t finish anything I brought upstairs for fear it would come back up anyhow). I feel like if the hibiscus was removed from this blend, there would actually be a fairly authentic pina colada flavour. Who cares about the colour – I’d rather a gross looking tea that tastes great than a great-looking tea that tastes gross.
