4 Tasting Notes

I really enjoy brewing (and drinking!) this tea. The mere process of opening the bag and preparing to steep is so calming. The smell of the leaves before steeping them is a-ma-zing. Somewhat sweet and floral. The leaves themselves are quite a sight: a very bright and colorful array.

I’ve searched the internet for a description of what kinds of flowers/leaves are used in this tea, but haven’t found anything. Regardless, this green tea does not disappoint. It’s got a very subtle flavor ~ almost like blueberries (?). (I did have a blueberry bar, so that’s possibly influencing my taste buds at the moment).

The smell when you open the vacuum sealed bag takes you back to Hawaii. Once you brew the leaves, the scent draws you in with it’s toasted coconut-like aroma. I steeped this one for 4 minutes and had a cup. I couldn’t taste the pineapple at all, but the aftertaste and scent of coconut and vanilla was so pleasant I couldn’t put the steaming cup down.

This tea reminded me of a sunny day spent on Kaanapali beach laying on a towel taking in the deliciously salty sea breeze interlaced with the scent of my coconut sunscreen. YUM!
