I picked up several loose leaf teas from this company while visiting relatives in Illinois, and I decided to try this one first.

In the tin, this smells mostly of green tea, with a sweet overtone from the pineapple chunks, which are large and plentiful. I used 2 teaspoons for a little over 8oz, plus a big pineapple chunk. :D The scent in the cup is pretty delicate, but it smells really tasty.

Before adding honey, this tastes mostly like good quality green tea, and the pineapple comes in at the end of the sip and in the aftertaste, which is really pleasant. In fact, now that I’ve had a few sips, I don’t think I’m going to sweeten it! The taste of this unsweetened is perfect! It’s very rare for me not to add a few drops of honey, so this is high praise.

I’m going to do a few more infusions of this I think!

Bio

I hate coffee and I love teas of all stripes (including herbal/tisanes)! My tea stash is getting out of control, so I’m trying to work through it – current count is 152+ flavors/types of tea/tisanes, bagged and loose. Woo!

My ratings:
0-10: Undrinkable. Probably threw the container away in a fit of rage.

10-25: Urgh. Gross. I need to give it away as it is taking up valuable tea cupboard space.

25-40: Uhh…why do I have this? May attempt foisting it onto my boyfriend.

40-55: Kinda funky, might drink it if I’m feeling under the weather and find it helpful, but that’s about it.

55-70: Ok, no great shakes, but I’ll drink it without complaint. I probably wouldn’t buy it again though.

70-85: If I come it across it and I’m in the mood, I’ll probably repurchase it.

85-100: Awesome! I will take extra time to find this again, and cry bitterly if it has been discontinued.
