I love angel food cake and thought that angel food cake flavor + a white tea = dream. When I opened the pouch, I was hit with a scent that is almost identical to children’s chewable Tylenol. Oh, it brought back memories of having to a) eat the stuff b) wash it down quickly with water after c) hope to never do that again. It’s funny the way scents bring back memories even years later. After the water has been added, it’s toned down a little bit and the white tea steps forward. I actually get a bit of a headache after smelling this one.

Sipping… good, it’s not entirely Tylenol… but I taste artificial grape mixed with white tea? Eh.. not a good sign. As it cools, more pineapple comes out and the white tea becomes softer. I also get a tiny bit of something sweet in the background that reminds me more of candy than cake. I’m thinking of a Lifesaver candy… the piña colada ones? It’s not explicitly a tropical holiday tea, but I definitely get that vibe.

So, I seem to be missing the mark with my cups of tea today. I hope I can find something to sip on that won’t make me feel sick.

That’s too bad, because a pineapple angel food cake should be instant heaven, no pun intended.

It should! I’m not sure what happened with this one.
