Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge: Saturday, March 13th: National Coconut Torte Day Tea #3
I had this last night and tonight. Thanks very much AJRimmer! I have been saving this for coconut day. Oh wow, I really like this! It is definitely accurate to a pina colada – not that I’ve actually ever had one. But it’s very fresh coconut but equal parts tangy pineapple. And that’s all you need here, really. The description here says it includes mango, which would also fit here and give another fruity layer. And I DID notice the tiniest piece of hibiscus and that most definitely shouldn’t be here! Be gone, hibiscus! But I don’t think I noticed it in the mug. The flavor here is delightful though. Fresh, tangy, creamy. Second steep is also lovely and no hint of hibiscus pink even after a long steep. And the flavor holds up, even with only one teaspoon, maybe because the pieces are fairly small. I bet this is great cold. I’ll be saving the sipdown for the hottest of summer days.
Steep #1 // 1 teaspoon for full mug // 12 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 10 minute steep
