From The Republic of Tea

Luscious pineapple and delicately sweet lychee – a small, round, creamy white fruit native to China – both sing with the flavors of warm Asian islands. They harmonize beautifully with the natural flavor of Nigerian hibiscus.

Steeping Instructions
Steeping herbal tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 5-7 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf. For iced tea, double the amount of tea used. Cool and serve over ice.

Ingredients: Hibiscus (flower), rosehips (fruit), apples (fruit), stevia (leaf) pineapple bits (fruit). Other Ingredients: Natural pineapple and lychee flavors

I’m down to my last serving of this tea :’( I think this calls for a short road trip this week up to World Market or Whole Foods. Does anyone have any recommendations for teas that can be found at either of those two stores? I want to find a good hot green tea (any type of flavor loose or bagged) and another herbal/fruit tea.


I’ve been told (here!) that WF carries DoMatcha:)


My local Whole Foods carries loose Rishi teas and Shang Tea.


I prefer Whole Foods to World Market. My Whole Foods carries DoMatcha, as well as a wide selection of Tazo (which is a local company for me) and Republic of tea. They even have a few Two Leaves and a Bud selections as well as some from Tea Spot. And some good local companies (Townshend’s & The Jasmine Pearl are a couple that come to mind).


Sigh..oh for a Whole Foods that wasn’t 100 miles away….


I’m w/ a gmathis- WF and Trader Joes are 2 hrs away from me! (and Teavana, but from what people are sayin I don’t wanna go there anyway lol)

Meghann M

Ohhh, I forgot about the Rishi teas. And Two Leaves and a Bud had some good ones. I’m still not sold on Matcha, I am not ready for it yet.

Gmathis and Cofftea, I’m driving 54 miles each way to visit whole foods…the Pineapple Lychee being empty is worth the trip. And I need something fun to do on my 3 days off this week (well one of the 3 days).


WF here has more of a variety than WM does, but WM has those exclusives with Republic of Tea and Zhena’s that I love. I can recommend Zhena’s Vanilla Mandarin and Rainforest Berry rooibos (I think that’s the name…), both are WM exclusives and yummy!

Meghann M

Lol, that’s an interesting combination. And where did you find bacon cookies? Is bacon and chocolate a good combination?


YES bacon and chocolate is great, bacon covered in chocolate is great! well my friend found it on a blog which has since been deleted and made them, we all thought she was a little nuts, then another friend went and made them just to see and also liked them, and so then it went epidemic among our friends
+ 1 stick butter
+ 1 c crispy bacon chopped into little chocolate chip sized pieces… See More
+2 small eggs
+ 1 tbl bacon torani syrup

the original recipe called for normal from scratch cookie recipe but came out kinda dry

oh and here:

I love the Dark Chocolate Bacon Bar! The dark chocolate flavor is new and it’s really good.

Meghann M

May have to give that recipe a go. Bet the hubby would love those cookies!


@Stephanie i have never had one :( we’ve made them ourselves though


I use this tea to soak apples in for fruit salad, then mix with strawberries and smoked salmon. Sounds wierd…tastes great! Keeps the apples from browning.

I’ve been eyeing this tea with some degree of trepidation since I got in a trade. Anyone who knows me knows I hate hibiscus, but when everyone started raving about RoT’s hibiscus-based flavoured teas I was curious enough to give it a shot – benefit of the doubt and all that.

The tea of course turned the usual bright red colour when I poured the water into my mug. Initally the steeping tea smelled like pineapple but after it had a few minutes in the water it started to smell more like lychee.

The tea itself…wasn’t half-bad, somewhat to my surprise. Yes, the hibiscus is readily apparent but it’s not as horribly tart as it could have been. It’s paired with a slight sweetness and the fruity flavours of pineapple and lychee are both easy to pick out and they distract my tongue from the evil red stuff. :D

Either me or my boyfriend purchased a little sample baggie of this from Central Market about a year ago. Stumbled upon it unexpectedly and brewed some up for the two of us in a coffee press. I am wary about hibiscus and blends with a lot of citrusy ingredients because it is really easy to overdo the tartness, so I was conservative in the amount of tea and the steep time. I am also wary of hibiscus due to so many negative experiences with Tazo Passion tea at work. The smell of hibiscus alone can turn me off quickly. Not to mention my former love of making raspberry passion tea lemonades to take home with me until I spilled it all over the car on the drive home… twice.

Annnnyway, this stuff brews up a beautiful (and expected) shade of hot pink. It smells fruity and tart. It tastes… like hibiscus. I’m getting a pretty interesting kool-aid taste, but not particularly lychee-y or pineapple-y. It’s definitely a slightly different, and pleasant, flavor. Very juicy and begging to be iced.

This is one of those teas that is just likable because it’s sweet and tangy and fruity. Even people who don’t drink tea will probably enjoy this one. I’m sure it would play nice with different lemonades/limeades or mixed in a fruit juice or a fruit punch too. Maybe a lemon-lime soda? Good for a summer picnic by the lake.

That being said, I can appreciate this tea, but it’s just not my thing.

I just want to add that I’ve been singing songs from The Little Mermaid today, and the tropical-ness of it and the redness of the tea seem fitting. :)

I am not a fan of this tea at all, I don’t taste pineapple and the lychee flavor tastes “off” to me.

Bright and fruity blend. I’ve enjoyed it as both iced and hot. I like a little sugar in mine, but it is just fine without.

I like hibiscus enough to drink the tisane without sweetener. I’m interested in the antioxidant properties and the lack of caffeine for an evening tea. I enjoy additional flavors/ingredients added to round out the tartness but I hate to say it, I just pass this tea up in the cupboard all the time in favor of Dammann Freres Carcadet Samba. The aroma of the RofT is enticing once brewed. The color is not quite as deep as the DF. I’ve tried it iced. It just kind of sits in my fridge til I toss it. I do taste the pineapple and lychee, though. I can see how some people would really favor this blend. It reminds me of Hawaii.

The tea smelled very nice and sweet but I didn’t like the taste that much. The exact taste to me was an under ripe pineapple. It had a slight sour/tarteness to it with a subtle sweetness. Just like a pineapple that’s not ripe. You could taste a light pineapple aftertaste.

4 bags in a 6 cup teapot filled to 3/4….added ice after a 5 minute steep. And then put it into my pretty glass pitcher. Good for iced, but I am pretty sure I will not repurchase once this tin is gone.
