From American Tea Room

Tea doesn’t get much more tropical than Calypso — our organic blend of Chinese black teas, pineapple and coconut slivers. Its deep russet brew combines the tangy aroma of pineapple, the boldness of strong black tea and the sweet, tropical scent of real coconut. Its flavor is assertive, tannic and fruity with a tart, lasting pineapple note in the finish.

Pair Calypso with jerk chicken, tropical fruit salad, or vanilla or caramel sweets. It’s also great sweetened with a bit of honey or sugar, or served as an iced tea.

The dry leaf smelled very much of pineapple but steeped the coconut comes out. It has cooled a little but I am getting sweet pineapple and coconut. There is also a fairly thick mouth feel that I am not loving. It is not offensive in any way but also not that interesting either.

Flavors: Coconut

Calypso… 1980s, eastern Europe, me on my school lunch break with Calypso ice cream in my hand. Eating it with a wooden stick… mmmm… Thanks for the trip down memory lane VariaTEA! :D

Sipdown (126/133)!

Made the last of this one from VariaTEA in my timolino. Honestly, I can probably sum up the whole thing by just saying that it wasn’t nearly as good as the cold brew but I suppose I’ll break it down a little more.

Pretty much it was just a straight up, simple, no frills coconut/pineapple similar to the cold brew but with the difference of the coconut being somewhat significantly more flavourful than the pineapple. Additionally, I kept getting cocoa notes from the black base, and I thought they weren’t meshing well with the rest of the tea. That’s probably the biggest reason it wasn’t as good as the cold brew: no cocoa in the cold version.

Side Question: Anyone played the Stanley Parable? I watched a few LPs of it last night and it looks super interesting. Debating making Tre get it on his Steam Account so I can play…

I used the rest of this sample to cold brew for about 10 hours. It has even less flavor now. I’m not impressed by this tea.
