Such a different tea.
I was sure it wasn’t my thing after a few sips. I can taste the cilantro mostly (not a bad thing I like cilantro) but the pineapple was strangely absent. So I’m sitting here looking through a couple message boards ignoring the tea for a bit when out of nowhere I taste pineapple. It had been a good half minute since I’d taken a tip and it just popped up out of the blue when I wasn’t thinking about it (so strange!).
So now that it’s cooled some and it’s got me intrigued, I’m back to it and it tastes a bit different. I can now taste a LIGHT flavoring of pineapple mixed in. The strong cilantro has mellowed a bit and the flavors seem to be getting along better.
What an interesting tea. Not sure it’s my thing but I can certainly appreciate it.

Does the cilantro taste pretty true to the real thing? I’ve wanted to try this since everyone has been talking about it but I’ve been nervous since I’m not a huge cilantro person.

I though it did shrug It was certainly recognizable to me as cilantro.

Thanks, I may have to pass on this one.

T.C.-I probably should have mentioned this in the description, but this tea is at its best after it has had a chance to cool a little bit.

I noticed this. At the start I tasted mostly cilantro and little/no pineapple. After it cooled some the cilantro retreated and the pineapple came out some and it was very well balanced.

For most of our flavors, the flavors tend to come out more after the tea has cooled a little but when other herbs and spices are added they are noticeable immediately and it can take some time for the flavor to catch up. That’s interesting that you didn’t taste any pineapple at all right away and then it suddenly appeared.
