Description: Do you like Pina Coladas? Well, this Pina Colada tea is an impressive brew. Deep ruby red infusion with outstanding aromas of coconut and pineapple to make this a multi-sensory drink experience. In fact, the only thing missing is the Rum, but you can add some of your own if you like. You don't have to enjoy being caught in the rain to love this Tea! It's great hot or cold! And because it is caffeine free it is good for the whole family (just perhaps not with rum)
Serving Suggestion: Liza enjoys this tea served as a cocktail over ice. Adam drinks it hot with a little agave syrup. For iced drinks either cold brew overnight or brew as for hot but use more tea leaves to make a more intense flavour.
As someone who loves a pina colada, this tea was particularly tempting and I am glad I bought it!! The smell of the tea is exactly the same as the cocktail, it sums up summery memories. The taste is delightful- whilst it does do a nice hot tea, I think the tea is best cooled. I brewed mine, let it cool then stuck it in a glass with ice- it was delightful and refreshing in the summer sun!
If you like the cocktail, or just even want a fruity tea that makes a perfect iced tea- then this is your pick!!
