I think my tea tastes are only slightly more stable than my musical tastes.
I used to really like this tea. But it’s been a while since I had it – I fell a bit out of love with it months ago. But since I am determined to get my tea pantry under control, I thought I’d bust this one out again because 1) I may like it now and 2) even if I don’t, I’m still that much closer to getting rid of a tin, right?
Musically, I tend to switch around musical genres. I’ll be in a pop mood for a bit, then a classic rock mood, then alternative, then angry music (it’s a genre for me, what can I say?)… It cycles and each mood stays around for one or more months. I’m getting the feeling that my tea tastes do the same. Or else I’m outgrowing flavored teas. Either or.
This is a bit more of a candied pineapple taste than fresh pineapple. With a bit of muskiness in it like appears if you’ve ever dried watermelon with a food dehydrator. Which can be a little odd (though at the same time, it’s oddly nifty… but odd). Additionally, I’m becoming pickier about the aftertaste I get from flavored teas. Because I’m learning that teas, even flavored ones, don’t have to give an aftertaste that requires immediate gum chewing. This one, though, does. So that makes me sad.
So not only have I found other good flavored teas, making this one seem less happy-making than it had been previously, but I’m pretty sure I’m migrating away from flavored teas and towards unflavored. I’ve probably got one more morning cup of this tea left but after that I won’t be getting this again.
In musical tastes though, this one is always fun no matter what mood I’m in: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWSQ9YQa_6w
