The Pineapple is strong with this one!

I had this tea over the weekend, and I must say it has a strong and long lasting pineapple aroma to it, and not a displeasing one at all. The flavored was similar to the aroma, leading to a pretty nice cup of tea.

Dry the leaves are green and there are tons of pieces of candied pineapple to offset the darkish color of the leaves, the pineapple smell will hit your nose the minute you open the tin. Steeping the tea takes on a gentle green color and a powerful pineapple aroma that will fill the room.

The final brew is a light green hue with the aforementioned pineapple aroma the flavor is bold and fruity, similar to that of champagne, of course missing the carbonation, surprising really. I have had cheap champagnes that miss the mark in flavor compared to this tea. Certainly wont be a winner for everyone, especially those who do not like a floral fruity taste.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
