Fruit Infusion / Flavoured

First Impressions

Strawberry Colada was a purchase I made during DavidsTea online sale. This fruity blend is a tisane, the aroma is bright and fruity – I can smell coconut, strawberry and pineapple. The pieces of fruit are huge and honestly seems like a lot of large chunks. The description suggests having it over crushed ice with rum.

Strawberry Colada consists of: hibiscus, rosehip shells, apple, pineapple, coconut, strawberry, natural and artificial flavouring.


DavidsTea recommends steeping Strawberry Colada in ‘near-boiling’ water for 4 to 7 minutes. I opted to steep in 100°C (212°F) water for 7 minutes.

First Taste

Strawberry Colada steeps to a very bright pink – a colour that I know and love from hibiscus. The aroma is very fruity. The flavour of Strawberry Colada is very strong – much like a punch to the taste buds with a mix of sweet, tart, and fruity. I enjoyed it hot, but I enjoyed it even more iced! The flavour is very strong when steeped for a solid 7 minutes.

A Second Cup?

I attempted to resteep Strawberry Colada, but found that it didn’t resteep well (which I’m not terribly surprised at given the fact that it’s a tisane).

My Overall Impression

I loved DavidsTea’s Strawberry Colada. I found the flavour was great – I enjoyed it the most when iced. I think it’d be a great tisane to have cold steeped (or hot steeped), and definitely would recommend it iced and perhaps with a splash of lemonade or soda water to bring more of a summer feel to it. The flavour is definitely quite intense and full of fruity flavour, and I think allowing it to steep for the full 7 minutes is the best course of action to get all of that flavour of it it since tisanes don’t often resteep well.
