Finally tried this hot tonight. Having caved and bought a 250 g bag on sale, I might be convincing myself that was a necessary purchase. Hot seems to tone down the pineapple a pinch, but now the smoothness of the coconut really starts to come out. I really do love this blend. The tropical flavours work so well either hot or cold. This was a real winner of a blend and I wish it had been permanent. Oh well at least I have enough to keep me stocked for the foreseeable future!
