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.

How refreshing it is to hear from you on this, a dark November day! We all need to remember delightful summer days and Pina Colada certainly can elicit that memory. Sip on~ Susan
What a delightful tea. Don't need any sweetener - the tart/sweet of the pineapple shines through, with a touch of the coconut flavor. Lovely hot, and refreshing cold.
We often get visitors in the shop asking if we are sampling Pina Colada iced today. It certainly is a favorite!
