I’m going to try to start getting through some of this drawer full of samples that I have! This is the first one that I saw today when I opened my tea drawer. It’s a pretty tea, with little rolls of green tea and small chunks of pineapple. The dry leaves smell lightly tropical, with sweet pineapple and coconut. The tea itself smells like fresh pineapple and coconut. The flavor is very mellow. I can detect a smooth buttery coconut flavor with just a little hint of slightly sweet pineapple at the end. I added a little sweetener thinking it would bring out more of the sweet pineapple, but it kind of just smoothed out both the pineapple and coconut flavors so that they flow together. The tropical flavor becomes a little sweeter as the tea cools. I’m glad that this one has the coconut in it as well, as I think that it would be a little too plain with just the pineapple flavor. I think this tea would be a good cup in the afternoon, as it is very light and calming. Thank you, Mercuryhime, for this sample!

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
