Even though Panera's Tropical Hibiscus has the same ingredients as this one, it is not the same. I have been experimenting and trying to perfect it! I used 4 bags of the regular hibiscus and 1 bag of the pineapple hibiscus for one gallon, and I have to say...it's pretty dang close!!! Please try it!

This is a great refreashing drink for summer. Better than soft drinks and tastes so good. One of my favorites.

I am typically not a fan of fruity teas, but since I am a fan of lychee I thought I'd give this one a try. The tea is nicely balanced and just plain refreshing. The hibiscus and lychee are the dominant flavors, with just a hint of sweetness from the pineapple. It makes a phenomenal iced tea!

FAVORITE Hibiscus Tea!!

By far and away my favorite hibiscus tea -- I have tried them all! My interest in hibiscus teas came about when I was trying to do something naturally to combat anxiety, possible high blood pressure, and dehydration. I drink about a liter iced at work (when I am most stressed) and I can definitely tell the difference when I am too busy to make it. I have been drinking this tea for over two years and my BP has dropped at least 10 points and when I get anxious, a glass really calms my nerves. Don’t know what the magic is, but it does the trick! I think the Pineapple Lychee is particularly delicious and though I cycle through the strawberry, raspberry and plain varieties as my other likes, it is by far my favorite. Because I make it iced, I brew it strong and add liquid Splenda to cover up some of the bitterness I taste from the added stevia (the one drawback). I recommend this to anyone who will listen and I always get asked about it’s beautiful color and Jello fragrance! It’s like a guilt-free

I had a small can of this last year to make ice tea and it was a hit anywhere I took it. I reordered for this year and again, it's delicious. I like my tea not so sweet and this has the right amount of floral and lightness to not need any sweetener. It hits the spot after a hard day of gardening, biking or just reading a book in the hammock. I would definitely recommend it!

This is such a delicious way to wake up every summer day, that I actually look forward to waking up. It is so flavorful that I don't even add any sweetener to it at all! Wonderful!

I was looking for a tea that was similar in taste to Panera's hibiscus tea. This tea is the closest I have found. I checked the ingredients in Panera and it matched the ingredients in this Hibiscus, Pineapple, Lychee tea. The taste is very close and I think even better.

Perhaps lichee is an acquired taste but once you taste this tea you'll be hooked. I love lichees and this tea tastes absolutely wonderful, especially iced. Very refreshing on a hot day and no caffeine.

This tea has a great blend of flavors. The Hibiscus, Pineapple, and Lychee mix together to make a wonderful sweet tea that's not perfumey or too floral. Wonderful to sip on a cold, snowy night and dream of warmer weather.

This is a sweet tea - a cold or hot tea - the pineapple and lychee perfectly balance the tart of the hibiscus. Of the taster pack, this one SLAYED me and all of my friends disappeared promptly!

A review written above said it was the same tea as served in Panera Bread, but it isn't...not even close. Since I love the tropical hibiscus tea there so much, I ordered a canister plus a refill, based on the review above. I spoke with someone in customer service and she said the blend that is in the Panera Bread restaurants is made exclusively for Panera Bread, and the pineapple lychee here is the closest thing to Panera's. To me, this one tastes too flowery, almost perfumy. I won't purchase this one again, but I will try another hibiscus blend.

I love the pineapple lychee part -- what sours me on this particular tea is the Stevia. It isn't listed as a Sweet Tea, so to have some the adds more sweet to it (especially since Stevia tastes off to me) is not good. However, if RoT were to make a Stevia-less version, I think it would be a summer iced tea staple for me.

A bit disappointed...

I couldn't resist ordering this flavor combo, especially for iced tea. I ordered a tin of this as well as a tin of the hibiscus only tea. I fell in love with the straight hibiscus -- delicious hot and iced, and very flavorful! Unfortunately I was disappointed with THIS tea -- the aroma is only vaguely that of hibiscus, and the flavor did not impart any of the slightly tart tropical flavors I was expecting. I guess I'll be mixing this with the stronger hibiscus only tea, since I tend to go through a lot of teabags making pitchers of iced tea.

I wish RoT sold this tea in smaller batches in loose/full leaf tea. I tried it out in the bags because that was all I could get a small amount of, and fell in love with it. I have to buy it in smaller quantities as a loose tea at my grocery store. But I love this tea. It's just sweet enough, and smells amazing. I love how RoT can make awesome caffeine free teas without focusing on chamomile.

Oh my, this is WONDERFUL!

This tea is very tasty and colorful. Perfect for that summer poolside drink (or popsicles). This tea can even be "grown-up" by adding some rum and fruit slices/juice and served over ice.... Just as wonderful hot....

I ended up buying this tea on a whim at my local Whole Foods, and I fell in love! The color and scent are both very beautiful and the taste itself is delightful. The tea is fruity and tropical without being overwhelming. The tea is fairly sweet on its own, adding sugar does not spoil the taste.

I bought this tea because the strawberry hibiscus wasn't at the grocery store. I would love it so much more if stevia wasn't in it. It's not in the strawberry one. It's very fruity and refreshing. If you like diet drinks I recommend trying it. I've never been able to enjoy alternative sweeteners.

I tried the Hibiscus teas because I read they may help lower the systolic numbers on blood pressure. After several weeks I think this is true for me. This flavor is very nice also like the Key Lime flavor

It's okay. I did not know it had stevia in it and that's probably what gives it a bitter edge. It should have been called "sweetened tea." Then I would have known not to buy it. Will not be drinking this tea.

All the tropical tastes of sweet pineapple and lychee fruit in a hot cup of tea! This was the first hibiscus tea I ever tried, and it has definitely become a house favorite. Has a natural sweetness to it--can almost stand in for dessert-- which is great if you're giving up sweets for dietary reasons!!

Not quite what I expected; good but is a little too perfumey (if there is such a word). I didn't notice a whole lot of pineapple either.

Light and fruity. While I generally drink my tea hot, I enjoyed this one cold! Aromatic whilst brewing, and extremely sweet to the taste. Certainly taste before sweetening, as it is naturally sweet.

My whole family loves this tea iced with just a touch of agave nectar for sweetness. So much so, that I went through 3 cans this summer! The taste is amazing and the color is simply stunning. I decided to buy the bulk bag directly from The Republic of Tea, so we'd never run out =)
