Do not have this tea while eating fresh pineapple!

I found it out the hard way, during lunch eeeeeeggg! They just do not go together at all and it’s quite awful.

Fresh pineapple actually temporarily disables your taste buds do best not to eat when you want to taste other things.

Eeeekk. I only eat Pineapple as a standalone snack or as a dessert. Unless it is combined with other foods (Like a fruit salad.)

Hahaha, I have discovered multiple foods that do not go together, but this isn’t one I’d encountered yet! Notable are mint preceding orange juice (but everyone knows that one), and smelly cheese preceding juices of most sorts. How people can drink even wine paired with such cheeses is beyond me.

thanks for the friendly advice :) But on the same token, I feel bad you had to find it out the hard way. I love this tea so much but cannot buy it becuase it was part of the fall collection :( I really need to get a credit card so I can buy on line.

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
