drank Tropical Green by Harney & Sons
463 tasting notes

Yesterday was grocery shopping day. While shopping is not my favorite thing, I do like that the Wegman’s I go to has its own little tea section. It’s always fun to look around and see if any new teas have been added. This tea, however, was in the coffee section tucked in a small shelf under the flavored syrups. Odd. Still, I was glad to see it and snapped it up even though I had already put two other teas in my cart.

So you know, I’m drinking the bagged version of this tea. It is a nice green tea. Pineapple is the dominant flavor with the grassy notes of the green tea being very subtle underneath. It’s sweet, but not overly so. Definitely did not feel the need to add sugar. I think I might add a bit of mint to my cup next time. I’m a sucker for mint and pineapple together.

Bio

I have always been curious about tea, but I didn’t give in to a full fledged obsession until 2010. I’ve enjoyed every new discovery, and my garden has loved the mini mountain of tea leaves that’s been added to the soil! Some of my favorite tea companies are:

- Whispering Pines Tea Company
- Zen Tea Life
- Harney and Sons
- 52 Teas
- Teavivre

While drinking tea I enjoy indulging in my other passions which include reading (the classics and mysteries), music, gardening, and crochet. I have a small business called the Leaf Street Thread Company, and I’m excited to have many of my handmade items sold at stores in the Philadelphia area.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
