It’s not to hard to predict which song I am pairing with this #MusicAndTeaMonday: Pina Colada Rooibos Tea from Steeped Tea. That’s right…Rupert Holmes’ Escape (The Pina Colada Song)! But first let’s get to the tea at hand!
It’s funny but I usually don’t care for Pina Colada drinks. I LOVE coconut and I LOVE Pineapple. So why don’t I LOVE Pina Colada? I guess I am just that complex of a person. Having said that…Pina Colada Rooibos Tea from Steeped Tea wasn’t too shabby! I think it was because it wasn’t overly aromatic. Maybe that is why I’m not usually fond of Pina Coladas…I think they smell like sun tan lotion. Blah! Pina Colada Rooibos Tea from Steeped Tea does NOT smell like sun tan lotion, thankfully. It smells like pineapple and coconut.
The taste of Pina Colada Rooibos Tea from Steeped Tea was first – the red rooibos – but the coconut and pineapple fit in lovely. It was creamy, too! This was definitely one of the better Pina Colada drinks overall I have tried let alone a rooibos! You probably have to like Red Rooibos to enjoy this, tho, because the flavor of the rooibos is prominent. It provides a sweetness to it but I enjoyed it.
The only thing I would change about the dry contents of this would be to have pineapple chunks verses pineapple slivers. But then again that would probably change the overall flavor so I’m not married to that idea. Pina Colada Rooibos Tea from Steeped Tea was a nice surprise and a great song connection for #MusicAndTeaMonday so without further aahhh-dooo…Rupert Holmes’ Escape (The Pina Colada Song)…enjoy!
