From Teavana

Succumb to the taste of serene shorelines where wild pineapples and sweet hibiscus blossoms mingle in the breeze. This smooth combination of white and black tea accentuated by the vibrant, tropical medley of fruits and sweet root vegetables makes a wonderful cup of tea. And the combination of white and black teas makes it exceptionally healthy.

I love this tea. A lot of people complain about the large amount of fruit in Teavana’s variety of herbal, white and green teas. I can understand why, there is a lot of fruit in there and they’re expensive, but I tend to enjoy fruity teas, sometimes.

This tea is a white and black tea blend. There are pieces of pineapple and hibiscus and apple, all which actually blend together very nicely. The flavor is an evenly balanced blend of the three: pineapple, apple and hibiscus, to make a fruity, sweet, yet slightly tart infusion.

The liquor of the tea is pink; if brewed hot, it will be pale pink, and if brewed cold, it will be darker pink the longer you allow infusion. I mention this, because it tells me that there is not a lot of black tea in the blend, that it is mostly white tea with the fruit mixed in and maybe a hint of the black tea.

I enjoy this one a two main different ways:

1. As an iced tea, alone or blended. Start with double the amount of tea you would normally brew, add hot water about 1/3 of the way up the pitcher, add sugar if you like, allow to infuse for 2 minutes, add cold water and some ice to shock the tea and stop the infusion.

Suggested blends: Youthberry, Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls, Thousand Mountain Jasmine. When I blend the teas, I use 2 parts of the Tiki Twilight to 1 part of the other, that way the additional teas offer a hint of flavor but do not overpower the Tiki Twilight that I enjoy so much.

2. As a hot tea, brewed 3 minutes, no additives needed. You will still get a light liquor and more sweetness than tartness when brewed for this short of a time. If brewing longer, the tartness comes out more, so you might need some sugar.

Overall, I think this was one of the better fruit blend teas from Teavana, and though it is mostly white tea if any tea and not a lot of the black tea, I still think there is enough tea, with the generous amount of fruit, to call it a decent tea.

Hey! =P

How would you brew this white/black tea!?!? The temperatures seem to be totally off.

Yea, they actually list the brew time as a black, which I think makes the hibiscus too strong/tart. In all reality, I consider this a white tea by all accounts.

When I read about teas like this, I just want to buy a tin and pick out the hibiscus :)

First of all, the TEAVANA store i went to listed this as a black tea not a white tea/black tea blend. So as such I brewed it like a Black tea not a White tea. Needless to say I burnt the leaves pretty badly.
That being said, despite the burnt tea taste, it is very fruity. And pleasent to drink. However i will wait to rate it until a time i don’t burn it.
