Yum! This is one of the tastiest tropical teas I’ve come across in a while! I love the way the Oolong tea, the coconut, the pineapple and the orange meld together in this Tropical Paradise Oolong Tea Blend from The Rabbit Hole!
There are a lot of tropical flavored teas out there, but I find that they are usually crafted with a base of black or green tea … it’s not often that I find a tropical Oolong, and perhaps that’s why I’m liking this one so much. The sweet flavor of the Oolong unites with the sweet notes of pineapple, orange and coconut in a really pleasant way, and the buttery smooth texture of the Oolong really emphasizes the coconut notes. And I like that I taste the Oolong front and center here … the flavors are strong, but the Oolong is not overpowered.
There is a very nice balance of coconut, pineapple and orange. As I mentioned before, I think that what really brings the coconut into the foreground is the Oolong. That rich, silky texture of the Oolong really plays to the slick coconut mouthfeel, giving the overall cup a very creamy taste and feel that is very luxurious and delectable. The pineapple is sweet, and the orange adds a bright note to the drink.
This is tasty served hot, but its AMAZING iced. And the Oolong tea allows for multiple infusions … increasing the value of this tea! This one will take your taste buds on a tropical vacation!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
