283 Tasting Notes
I got this in a swap with Stephanie (Thanks :D)
It’s a good tea, but I’m glad I got this in a swap just to try it out. I don’t think I’ll buy a whole of it. There’s just something that I don’t quite like.. I think it’s the floral note in the smell and taste. It’s very small part so it’s not so bad I hate the tea, it just pings the wrong way. Otherwise, the pineapple tastes and smells like the dried pineapple rings with the crust of sugar all around it. There is a little tartness which I think adds to the pineapple-ness.
This was very tasty. I got a cherry syrup taste upon first tiny sip but not in an overpowering way. There is that roasty toasty genmaicha tea taste backing it. I like this one more than the browncoat genmaicha I had before from 52teas. I’m finishing up my thermos and kind of wishing I had more leaf to brew up some more.
A little packet from the Christmas tea set thing… it is a weird tasting tea. It’s fruity and sweet in a generic way and oddly… creamy? Not something I’m liking as an iced tea. I was hoping for stronger ginger/lemon taste. I’m not buying the christmas days set from Teavana next year no matter how discounted. I haven’t really like any so far.
Hmm, thought I’d typed this in already when I had it a couple days ago at work but I guess not. This tea tastes like it’s name. The dry leaf smelled mostly like pineapple gum but upon tasting it there’s a savory taste of bacon and sweet pineapple. It’s definitely something to try but not something I can drink everyday.
