I´ve had this tea a few times the last couple of days, always taking it hot, and I´m not sure whether this is my favourite way of having it : I believe this could be far more enjoyable when iced over Summer. It might be because of its high content in hibiscus (40%), which tends to overwhelm the other ingredients. I noticed that this is particularly so in mouth, as the dry infusion smells of coco, even in a subtle way of piña…overall, I therefore think the naming of this blend as “piña colada” is a bit far fetched.
Looking now at the descriptive of this infusion on The Capsoul´s website, I also notice the recommended steeping time and temperature are WAY different from those indicated on the tin : online it says 5-6 minutes at 95ºC while I steeped this tea for 2 minutes at 70ºC…considering this isn´t a real “tea” as such, I guess it´s not that important, but it sure gives me a bad impression.
Waiting now for the Summer to arrive and to try this as iced tea…
