So I love strawberry in tea, but I’m not a huge fan of pineapple or coconut. I was hoping the strawberry could overpower the rest, but the flavor ends up being much too tart. Cold, I taste mostly pineapple with a tiny bit of coconut. Hot, the hibiscus was pretty clear as well; I’m not sure why it faded so much as it cooled. The dry leaf smells a lot like Teavana’s pineapple kona pop, which had a largely unpleasant pineapple flavor, so I’m guessing this blend uses a similar pineapple that I just don’t happen to like. This isn’t the worst, but it’s not what I was hoping for. I needed a lot of sugar to counteract the tartness. If you like pineapple teas, though, you’ll probably be a fan!

Bio

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
