Below you will find the original post I wrote for this tea more than a year ago now. Note that I mentioned even then that I thought we would be entering it into the World Tea Championships (Now known as the North American Tea Championships). Well, we did enter it, our ONLY entry into the competition, and it placed third in the Flavored Herbal Teas category!
If you have not had the chance to try this tea yet, you are cheating yourself out of a wonderful experience. It is as amazing hot as it is iced. Enjoy!
We create a lot of different blends here on 52teas. It is one of the things I absolutely love most about my job is experimenting with new flavor combinations and creating new and unique blends. I have to admit that some of our experiments are more successful than others. Some of the blends we create are good, some are great, and a few, like this week’s Tea of the Week, are just phenomenal!
Sweet African honeybush appears to be MADE for tropical flavors. Combine it with dried pineapple, unsweetened coconut flakes and a touch of rum flavor, and you’ve got a tea so soothing, relaxing and pleasing to the senses, that, like I wrote on the label, you ought to be required to sip it from a hammock on the beach.
We hope this tea blows you away as much as it did us. I’m seriously thinking this might be one to enter into the World Tea Championships next year. Enjoy!
