I received a lovely bunch of samples today from a tea company called Tea Story.
There were various delightful looking teas in the envelope but the one that caught my eye the most was this one
- Pina Colada Fruit Infusion.
I thought that maybe as the day was dark and gloomy outside I could have this tea and be reminded of a hot tropical day spent laying by the beach.
I see when I open my sample pouch that the tea is in bag form and notice that inside the bag there are a vast array of colours pleasing to the eye and instantly the aroma awakens my senses.
Tea Story advise that you use 1 pyramid bag per cup and that you should steep for 3-5mins at 100 degrees.
I prepare my kettle for boiling and while I wait I take in the tropical aromas from the tea bag (very refreshing and reminiscent of a tropical holiday).
My kettle has now boiled so I pour the liquid over my bag and instantly the water turns a very pale pinky red colour.
I cannot stress how refreshing this tea smells as it’s infusing.
The tea contains a tropical blend of coconut, pineapple, hibiscus and apple.
After the recommended brewing time (I went for 5 minutes for maximum flavour) I take a sip and I’m instantly taken away to a tropical land. This tea is amazing!
I am really pleased that how the tea smells is exactly how it tastes.
I get a kick of coconut, then pineapple and the apple and hibiscus are very faint but add to the overall taste sensation.
This tea is a must try if you are feeling a little miserable after the dull weather or if you simply like sweet tasting teas that take you on an overall flavour experience.
This for me is going to be the tea I drink when I am feeling a little down and on the lead up to my summer holiday.
I might also add that I think this would be perfect in the summer as an iced drink maybe mixed with some frozen berries for a full fruity experience.
Tea Story describes this tea as-
Transport yourself to a sun-drenched Caribbean island with this exotic fruit infusion. A totally tropical blend of coconut and pineapple, the taste is underscored by hibiscus and apple. Take a sip, close your eyes and let your senses drift away. Alternatively, it is ideal for enjoying over a chat with friends.
All the sweet fruitiness of its namesake without the alcohol.
Overall I am overjoyed with such an amazing flavoursome tea that can be enjoyed anytime of the day! Thank You Tea Story I give this a firm 10/10.
