Tasting Notes: Luscious amber liquor with well-structured tannin and tropical flavors of pineapple and coconut.
If you like piña coladas, this blend of Indian black tea, grated coconut, and pineapple pieces is going to be your new favorite tea - hot or iced! This exotic black tea blend is our tea family's favorite iced tea in the summer, but sometimes you'll catch us brewing up a cup in the depths of winter and pairing it with our Mango honey to be temporarily transported to a beach in Brazil.
For cocktail enthusiasts, we recommend brewing this tea strong and sweet to create a cocktail syrup or mixer ideal for warm days by the water and sultry nights inland.
Ingredients: Indian Black Tea, Grated Coconut & Pineapple Pieces
Scented teas should be brewed according to the base tea leaves. White and green scented teas may be brewed at 185 degrees for 3 minutes. Black scented teas may be brewed at 205 degrees for 3-5 minutes. We recommend to brew chai teas at 205 degrees for 5-7 minutes to yield a strong cup that will hold nicely with honey and milk.
What is Scented Tea?
Blended or scented tea, as opposed to herbal tea, is based upon the leaf of the tea plant, camellia sinensis. Other ingredients such as flowers, dried fruits, and essential oils are then added to achieve the desired flavor.
Health Benefits of Scented Tea
Congratulations, if you are drinking tea, you have already chosen an incredible, healthful beverage. Tea is considered in many cultures to have medicinal properties. All tea comes from the same plant family, camellia sinensis and therefore all types and styles contain the same components that contribute to significant health benefits. Influence of the varietal, growing conditions, production techniques and your own brewing practices play a role in the antioxidant and caffeine levels in your cup. Blended and scented teas are no exception. So enjoy a cup of tea, any tea, and know that you are drinking health.
