drank Pineberry Honeybush by 52teas
771 tasting notes

I hummed and hawed over buying this tea. So eventually I purchased it while picking up some SBT iced teas. I got the last one.

I have never had or seen or even knew there was such a thing as a pineberry. The dry tea smells like sweet pineapple and strawberries. The brewed tea smells quite peppery with a light strawberry scent. Initially the hot tea tastes peppery (black pepper) with tart strawberries. As it cools there is much more of a pineapple taste. As it cools even more it is like lightly candied pineapple and strawberry. The honeybush is not overpowering. I can taste the marshmallow root in the background. I am looking forward to trying this one iced.

Glad I picked this one up.

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.
