I am not always such a huge fan of green teas but I am coming to like them a bit more as time goes by. I thought I would give this one a shot as I also like tropical fruit. I don’t know what kind of green tea is used here as the base but I am guessing dragonwell from the photo.

Steeped for about 2 minutes in 180 F water (I am guessing) and this is VERY fruity! Smells strongly of pineapple and a bit of passionfruit. I am curious as to what the blue flowers are here in this blend. It tastes predominately of pineapple and not too much of green tea. I was worried I would hate this after my Teavana Pineapple Kona Pop experience but I am actually kind of liking this.

I did manage to steep it a second time and there is definitely less pineapple and more tea but it is still quite tasty. I would definitely consider buying this again, especially for the summer. If you like tropical fruit you might want to give this one a shot.

I think the blue flowers are cornflower? Not 100% sure.

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
