Do you like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain? If so, this Pineapple Rooibos by Sanctuary T might just be for you! When I first opened the can the sour aroma took me for a loop - it smelled mega sweet which is not my usual cup of tea. The pineapple also gives a very powerful acidic smell which might scare you away but - don't lose hope!
The earthy, nutty flavors of the rooibos balance the sweet pineapple in the tea and with flecks of coconut - this tea end up with a creamy and rich flavor much like a pina colada! It's pretty yummy. I am not usually a big fan of super sweet teas so I don't recommend adding any kind of sugar to this one because it's plenty sweet on it's own but I can definitely see this one over ice on a hot day in the backyard.
Also - helpful tip when steeping - these leaves are very fine so you can expect a few to slip through a traditional tea steeper - so you might try to use a tea maker for this particular tea if you don't want floaties!
You can't buy this one online - so you'll have to stop by the Sanctuary T store in New York, New York.
I rate this rooibos tea a 3.5 out of 5 stars!
