I bought the pop can tin of this despite never trying it because the packaging was just so cute. Probably a terrible plan but this didn’t have stevia and seemed like an alright mix of ingredients so I went for it. Drinking it now after 24 hours of cold brewing, I am thankful to report it’s quite nice. It’s not my favourite and if not for the tin, I likely wouldn’t have bought as much as I have but it should be easy enough to drink up what I have now.

I get a pineapple punch and aftertaste with coconut popping up in the middle of the sip with flavor and creaminess that’s stays on the tongue. It’s not lotion-y and doesn’t complete cover up the black tea base. It really is quite nice.

I’m a sucker for cute packaging, haha.

Yearly cold brew collection just launched earlier in the week and this is the new tea out of the three in this year’s line up! I was excited to see Berry Burst come back; I’ve gone through about a tin of that each year it’s been out. More “meh” about the Southern Peach since I’m still working through my OG tin of that from three years ago but I get that it’s pretty popular overall…

However, a pina colada black tea!? Oh, bitch! That is my jam! Y’all know how much I love pineapple, and pina colada anything. Of course when I first tried it the immediate thought that I had was “Will this be better than Camellia Sinensis’ One Night In Rio’ blend?” because, as you all know, that is my current reigning favourite pina colada blend and the one I go through the most/need to always have stocked up. Well, the answer is sort of?

They’re definitely different – for starters, I find this a little sweeter and also a little creamier. It’s weird though, because One Night In Rio is a creamy tea but it’s also sort of buttery/caramelized pineapple/coconut to me and the coconut also sometimes has a toasted quality. And while I find this creamier, I do not find it heavier on the coconut than One Night In Rio is. I would probably have to have them next to each other to really know which I like more, because they feel like very different approaches to pina colada. The pineapple flavour is so nice in this one though, and I hope people like it because I know that pineapple isn’t a flavour that really crushes it for DT the same way that things like strawberry or peach (like the other cold brew teas) generally do…

The other thing I’ve thought about is that I enjoy this a lot cold (as it’s intended to be had) but less so hot – mainly because the CTC black base used steeps out SO quickly, but I like One Night In Rio much more hot than I do cold/iced. So, there’s that distinction in my head as well. The bottom line is that I think I have a place in my stash for both of them! I’d definitely recommend this one for anyone who enjoys a pina colada/creamy coconut type of flavour though! So creamy, and fresh feeling. Good with milk, as well, or spiked with something like rum! Yum!

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
