The name of this tea threw me off a bit. I didn’t think it would be good at all. But I was wrong! It is delicious.

The dry tea smells of candied pineapples with an orange smell. You can smell the lavender as well. You can see the candied pineapple, orange rind, lavender and sage.

The brewed tea is a yellow colour similar to pineapple juice. It smells like warm pineapple with a citrous undertone.

The tea tastes delicious. I mostly taste the pineapple and sage. There is undernotes of orange. I don’t really taste the lavender, but I think the lavender makes it very smooth tasting. This tea is making me crave ham with pineapples and seasoned with sage. Mmmmmm. Even though the tea is fruity, it is not too sweet. The balance of flavours is good, and I didn’t even think of adding any sweetener. It tastes like it would be good iced as well.

This is part of Teavana’s Blissful moments tea of the month club. Each month two teas are delivered that are good on their own, or good blended together. This tea came with peach tranquility. I can already imagine what they taste like blended together, it is going to be wonderful.

That Tea of the Month Club from Teavana sounds fun – especially if it’s herbal like this. I personally love this tea, and I wonder what it would be like paired with other teas.

They have three different clubs. I chose this one because it was herbal. That way I can experiment at night!

KeenTeaThyme

Hmm, I will have to investigate! Thanks!

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
