  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.

    Tea Type Steeping Temperature Steeping Time
    White Tea  170-185 F 1-3 minutes
    Green Tea 170-185 F 2-3 minutes
    Oolong Tea 170-190 F 2-3 minutes
    Black Tea 200-212 F 3-5 minutes

       Fruit and herbal teas are also referred to as tisanes.


If you close your eyes and wiggle your toes, you will find yourself somewhere else.

If it's not summertime where you are, it is someplace else. Children dream of digging to the other side of the world and walking upside down in Australia, but for adults, the wonder of the eternal summer dream is more easily accessed, and can be no further away than a delicious cup of herb and fruit tea. Awash with tart, sweet, melty summer character, our Pina Colada fruit tea is an exceptional offering, hot or cold, and one that – caffeine free – you can enjoy all afternoon long.

A fruit tea is a unique category of tisanal. Dried fruit, floral and herbal teas release their flavor collection differently, and often in a manner distinct to their specific batch. Many drinkers will note the quick release of the early, sharpest flavors, and indeed the coconut and pineapple at the heart of this delicious cup are readily present. Just the opening of the bag is enough to throw the mind and olfactory senses into a state of delight. And when a steaming sip is tasted there's no mistaking the richness of the Pina Colada flavor. Yet fruit teas are not simple, and never one note, often allowing for a great variety of tastes and sensations to share the spotlight in a way that leaf teas don't. Here, it's the managerial notes that surprise and linger; an undercurrent of rosehips, apple, and hibiscus.

Our Pina Colada manages the enviable feat of being an utterly flavorful cup while still remaining crisp, lean, and refreshing. And for an outdoor afternoon with company, or a change of pace anytime or place, try it iced. Apple and pineapple are the stars here, soaring atop a mellow bed of coconut and rosehips. Cooling hibiscus is a longtime beloved beverage in the Mediterranean and near-eastern world. There's luxury, and then there's sophistication, and then there's our Pina Colada loose leaf fruit tea.

Best enjoyed chilled listening to Jimmy Buffet with your eyes closed imagining hot white sand between your toes.

Not regretting the loss of Pineapple Kona anymore

When I realized that Teavana had gone the way of the dinosaur, I was mostly upset about one thing: my pineapple tea. I'd gone through my stash and failed to replenish it, and since I can't have caffeine my tea choices are already sadly limited. I needed a new pineapple tea.

I don't have to worry about that anymore.

It's been a while since I last had Teavana's Pineapple Kona (like I said, I ran out a while ago), but this clears away the memory of it. It's got more of a hint of coconut flavor than that tea, I think, which I like very much, and unlike some other options I've read about this tea does not get overwhelmed with hibiscus or some extraneous flavor like lemon grass. It's fruity, not too sweet, not too tart, and perfectly soothing.

Thank you Jennifer, we're glad that you found Pina Colada. May we suggest the next time you order it, mention in the notes section that you would like a sample of 'Bella Coola' . It's got pineapple and orange. It maybe a winner for you too!
