(DavidsTea already recorded)
Still good despite its age! Just a touch on the soapy side, but otherwise really deliciously fruity, coconut/pineapple/tropical.

A little taste of paradise.
Whether you call it a prickly custard apple or a Brazilian paw paw, soursop is just about the most exotic fruit around. Creamy in texture with a bit of a sour kick, we just knew this cactus-like fruit would make a refreshing cup of tea. And we weren’t disappointed. When you blend it with coconut, sweet pineapple, green tea and chamomile flowers, it tastes just like a piña colada with a twist. Best of all, it’s perfect hot, iced or with a splash of rum. One sip and you’ll be whisked away to a sunny paradise in no time.
Apples, green tea, pineapple (pineapples, sugar), coconut flakes, sweet blackberry leaves, chamomile, natural soursop, pineapple and coconut flavouring.

I love this fruity green tea when I’m not feeling my spicier or sweeter blends. It’s delicately balanced with flavours of pineapple and coconut, and a bit of a sour kick. I’m so sad that DAVIDsTEA discontinued this, I haven’t found another fruity green with the nice sourness that this one has — Pura Vida simply doesn’t compare.

I am not sure about this blend. It does have a very tropical flavor with the coconut and pineapple. The soursap does seem to have given it a very sour element. To me it seems a little overly sweet and overly flavored in general. I think it would have been better with some more green tea and slightly less fruit. I’m not overly fond of it. Slightly reminiscent of Fruit Stripe gum. I will try steeping it for a shorter duration next time. May need to try this as a cold brew someday…
Got a sample of this tea in my latest DT order and while I know what a soursop is (thank you Amazon Trail) I’ve never eaten one. They do sell soursop juice at my local Superstore, maybe I should try it and see how the flavours compare. I love the delicious tropical, fruity scent of the tea – it’s like pineapple mixed with the ripest, juiciest strawberries. The flavour is a bit of a let down because while I do get a flavour similar to the scent there’s a strange, artificially sweet aftertaste like stevia – even though there’s no stevia listed in the ingredients. It was a fun tea to try but I don’t think I’d buy a full pouch of this blend.
This tea has a really interesting aroma – I’ve never tried soursop in anything and I think it’s a new smell for me. I’m not sure that I really taste the soursop in there once brewed though. Maybe a bit, there’s a light tanginess. The pineapple and coconut come through most prominently creating an enjoyable tropical flavour.

This one smells much nicer than it tastes. I’m usually excited for anything that lists coconut and pineapple thinking it might come close to the delicious Pina Colada Tea that David’s briefly had a number of years ago. And to my nose it smells like it could be a sweet tropical mix. Unfortunately when brewed it’s mostly a pineapple flavor and not even a very nice one. I would describe it as being very much like underripe pineapple, probably due to the soursop giving it the bitter and tart flavor. I don’t think it’s horrible and would actually welcome a pineapple flavored tea but this one is just a twinge too sour and I don’t think it’s special enough that I would repurchase.
