This is really good. A very unique approach to the usual tropical tea.
There is a lot going on! The pineapple is the strongest note, but because of so many other ingredients, it doesn’t overwhelm the cup. I can taste each note and they are very harmonious and create an almost seamless kind of taste. I love the genmaicha in this, it adds just a hint of toasted flavor that accents the flavor of the cardamom very well. The coconut is very delicate here, the mango and papaya give a nice sweetness to the cup. The bamboo is not a strong flavor, but it is just enough in there to get your taste buds to sit up and say “hey, what was that?”
A very unusual blend – I like it a lot.
