Another one I wasn’t sure about at first, and another one I think has benefitted from being opened a few days. When I smell this now, I immediately get pineapple and cake. It’s sweet, pineapple-y, with a hint of glace cherry and the unmistakable scent of cake. My brain is having trouble processing the fact that this is tea, and I’m actually quite tempted just to munch on the leaves. Self-control wins out, though!
I gave this three minutes in boiling water. It smells just as it does dry — fruity, cakey, amazing! To taste, I definitely get cake. There’s something spongy and vanilla-like floating around. I also get cherry in the aftertaste. Pineapple, not so much — it’s there, but it’s not as clear as I’d like it to be. Maybe I need to experiment with my brew times a little more. This is another great dessert tea, though. I love how much it tastes like cake — I’d never have believed it if I hadn’t tried it for myself. Liquid deliciousness indeed!
