Time for Tea Please?
Today I’m going to be sipping on another blend from House of Lilah . This one being Tropical Escape . The name on its own is enticing enough, let along the brightly coloured design upon packaging.
At House of Lilah Creating teas that can either evoke memories or transport you elsewhere sip by sip ! To find out more about House of Lilah hit the link : https://www.houseoflilah.co.uk
For this blend House of Lilah uses : Chinese sencha (green tea), desiccated coconut , stevia, pineapple pieces (freeze-dried), mango flavouring, pineapple flavouring, coconut flavouring.
As soon as you open the pouch you are instantly engulfed with the aroma of the coconut and pineapple and very little else. Not that this is a bad thing as it screams piña colada.
Let’s Get Brewing !
The aroma whilst brewing doesn’t majorly change from its dry state the pineapple and the coconut are still the major players if anything it’s more fruity with the mango starting to coming through more.
With lots of loose leaf tea I love seeing the transformation of it. Those massive pieces weren’t in there to start with !!!!
Unlike other green tea based green teas the brewed liquid is a lot more yellow. Presumably down to the pineapple and mango within the blend.
Let’s Get Sipping!
One sip and your hooked. The tea itself is everything you smelt and more. The coconut , pineapple and mango are everything about this tea. Each sip just screams tropical paradise and brings the nostalgia to each sip.
Hot or cold this brew is the Piña Colada of teas. Having only had it warm so far it’s obvious too that this tea would be perfect iced or even as lemonade spritz on a warm summers night. Well any time really!
Despite this tea being a green tea , it’s probably the only flavour that you can’t taste! Now this isn’t a bad thing as sometimes green teas can be just too grassy. However I can’t even detect it at all but as it’s clearly in the blend at least we are still getting all the health benefits of it.
If I was to have one slight criticism of this blend is that it’s a little too sweet and without the stevia it may just allow the green tea to shine a bit more.
Don’t let that put you off trying this tea as it’s the perfect brew for any ParTEA especially for mocktails!
Happy Sipping 🙂
