After my last iced tea review (not from Southern Boy Teas), I was really looking forward to getting back to some GOOD iced tea blends from Southern Boy Teas! This Pina Colada Flavored Iced Tea has been calling out to me for a while, so I finally decided to give in to the calls and give it a try. Mmm!
This is pretty tasty. The pineapple and coconut notes are pretty evenly matched here. I taste a good amount of both pineapple and coconut, with maybe just a wee bit more pineapple than coconut. I especially enjoy that juicy, sweet-tangy note of pineapple that comes in at the aftertaste.
I also taste notes of rum in this, but the rum is a little more subdued than the fruit notes. It doesn’t have a really strong alcohol taste, but I can taste the subtle presence of rum.
And I can taste the black tea. I find myself really appreciating the FLAVOR of the black tea today. The black tea blend that 52Teas aka Southern Boy Teas uses for their iced tea is of good quality. It tastes good. It has a smooth yet brisk flavor. It’s very refreshing and quenches the thirst.
I’m very happy with this Pina Colada iced tea. It’s not my favorite of the SBT collection, but, it’s tasty and one I wouldn’t mind drinking again!
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!
