It looks like I may have gotten the last of this tea for the moment, because it is no longer on the SerendipiTea site. This is a SAD thing because this tea is very delicious! The Chinese green tea, papaya and pineapple go so well together. You can taste the added flavors but you can also taste the green tea (which is smooth, slightly vegetal, and satisfying). Perfect warm weather tea! I’d love to try this iced too.

I did a second steep at 4 minutes and it is equally as wonderful. A little heavier on the tea, a little lighter on the additions, but so so so good.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
