From Harney & Sons

Breathe in the sweet aroma of Caribe, a light fusion of green and black teas enhanced by tropical flavors. The exotic tea fuses hibiscus, guava, coconut and strawberry, accented with marigolds and cornflowers mellifluously. The first sip tastes of green tea, trailed by an impressive array of fruit and floral surprises, revealing endless tropical notes tucked into each sip. A favorite for many, Caribe is an inventive and exotic blend softened into a serene escape.

Admittedly I’m not the biggest fan of tropical flavored teas, but when they are in front of me, I usually appreciate them well enough. This one was in the sampler cube that i got from Harney and Sons.

I don’t like it at all! Maybe its the specific blend of tropical fruits, or maybe its the combination of black and green tea (I used water slightly under a boil to account for the green). Every sip is a struggle to swallow and I quit trying after I drank half of the cup.

Picked this up at the local tea shop. This is a delightful fruity tea. At first sip, I tasted the guava, but then I got a hint of coconut. I’m sure the other flavors are in there too, but I’m having trouble finding them. I may not have the best palate for them. I like that it’s a blend of green and black teas – might be the only way for me to enjoy a green. A great way to start a Tuesday!

I think this tea tastes better iced. Will be making it iced from now on :)

Very fruity, but mild. The black/green tea blend thing is very odd, but this one is pretty good. I don’t really like guava, but it’s got a nice fruity flavor.

The smell of the dry tea instantly transported me to a plantation garden in Hawaii. Smelled so good, tropical, fruity.
Brewed, this tea has a smell similar to pineapple, a sweet, tart, tropical fruity flavour. There is also a roasted smell, which I am wondering if that is the coconut.
The taste is delightful and delicious. I’m getting that slight roasted flavour, but also the guava and marigold. The mix of green and black tea base is very light. It is fruity and floral.
Next time I brew this I am going to brew it more like a green tea, and less like a black. I think it would make a delicous iced tea.
I bought this as a sample size and am a bit dissapointed I am soon going to run out.

Edit: I left the house to go and chip some ice so that the mail man would continue to deliver my tea packages(only when they don’t get lost in the mail, that is) and when I came back in the house has a wonderful pot pourri smell of this tea. Delicious. Just like luscious pineapple and tropical flowers. I’m just going to leave the used tea leaves sit out all day!

I got this as a wrapped sachet with my first Harney & Sons order last year, and never bothered opening it. For some reason, it just didn’t sound appealing. However, I’m trying to clear out my samples drawer to make room for more, and figured I’d give this a try.

Holy strawberry yum.

It smells so juicy and amazing, right off the bat — sort of like strawberry kiwi Snapple tastes, if that makes sense. And steeping it doesn’t mellow the aroma a bit, but actually makes it stronger and fresher and juicier.

The strawberry is definitely there in the flavor, as is the guava. The tea isn’t very strong, but it’s still pretty evident, mellowing the fruit flavors a little and keeping this blend from being cloying. (In fact, this green/black blend probably would have been better with the H&S mango tea, instead of the black they used.) I don’t taste the coconut, but I hate coconut so I’m fine with that.

This is so delicious, seriously. I am definitely including a tin in my next order.

This is a very nice change of pace tea for me. It tastes of a green/black tea infusion with guava and strawberry added. Its very smooth and flavorful and easy to drink. I like this tea better this time than I did the first time. It leaves a lingering guava taste on the tongue.

First off, this smells AMAZING.
I bought the sample cube not too long ago and this was in it! So happy with the selection that they have in the sample cube.
It smells amazing in the sachet, and you can really smell the guava when brewing.
I’m drinking it right now and OH MY GOSH IT’S SO GOOD. I’m not the biggest fan of fruity tea, but oh this ones so so SO good! I like the little hints of strawberry, and all the flavours are just balanced so perfectly. Definitely going to buy this on my next shopping spree!

This was an unexpected (yay!) sample in my Harney tea order. The aroma is definitely guava and reminds me of when my eldest daughter was really little – about three years old. She loved guava juice. The guava is the prominent note in the aroma and in the tea, so if you love guava and you are a fan of flavored green teas, you should like this one. It doesn’t have a lot of the buttery or vegetal taste many greens have, but rather a fruity floral taste. There is also a bit of black tea blended in this, which seems to deepen the color of the cup a little but isn’t a front note in the taste. Thank you, Harney and Sons!

Oh yum, lots of guava flavor! Lately all I want to drink is black tea with some milk & a tiny bit of rock sugar. Maybe its the cold weather but I just haven’t felt like having any green tea.

However, this mix of green and black is quite enjoyable. I’ve never tried such a mix before, but I’m impressed. As far as the fruit flavors go, they taste kind of clean & bright and are not overly sweet or artificial. The guava flavor is a bit more present that the strawberry. I haven’t had anything guava-flavored in a while so this was a pleasant surprise. I could drink this daily, with no sweetener or anything added.

I only had the one bag to sample, so I steeped it for just a couple of minutes and sipped a bit tonight. Tomorrow, I shall have the rest, iced! I bet the fruit flavors will be even more pronounced and wonderful then!

I absolutely love this tropical green & black tea blend. Just opening the tin smells amazing, and it keeps that scent as it is steeping. The tart, fruity tastes of guava and pineapple come through the tea quite vividly, and it tastes great hot or iced. I treat it like a green tea to get all of the fruit flavors to emerge.
