My cupboard is dominated by tins of black, green, and white, so I can be rather close-minded when it comes to herbal teas. So I was pleasantly surprised when a couple of friends presented me with a can of David’s Pineapple Daiquiri, containing Hot Tropic and Redberry Tonic for my birthday. I decided to forgo the instructions to mix the two together, and brewed the latter by itself.
Imagine my apprehension when after 5 minutes of steeping, the result was a deep shade of fuchsia that looked and smelled like prune juice. However, the taste was pleasantly tangy, without overbearing herbal notes. Given the weather, this will probably go down easier iced.
Bottom line: Herbal is still uncharted territories for me, and it may take awhile for me to become accustomed to the taste.
Flavors: Berries, Fruit Punch, Lemongrass
