Taster’s Review:

I try to go into a tea tasting with no real expectations.  It’s not always easy.  It wasn’t in the case of this White Tropics tea from Tea & Bloom … because with pineapple and coconut flavors, I couldn’t help but think Pina Colada.

And this doesn’t really taste so much like a Pina Colada as it does a tropical tea.  But I’m not disappointed by that.  The pineapple and the coconut are nicely paired here, and the white tea is not overpowered by the tropical fruits.  And I can even taste hints of the rose in there too.  And it’s the rose that gives this a flavor that is different than the typical Pina Colada flavored tea.   (Well that, and there’s not a rum note to this.)

I like that I can taste the creaminess of the coconut, and it melds beautiful with the sweet notes of the white tea while the pineapple brightens up the cup.  It’s flavorful, but in a delicate, “white tea” way.

All that said, this isn’t really all that exceptional in any way.  It’s a tasty enough tea, I like the classic combination of pineapple and coconut, and I like how they meld with the white tea and just a hint of rose flavor.  But, it’s just … alright.  I’d drink it again if it were offered to me, but it’s not something I’d want to purchase and have on hand.
