I was so excited to see this included in the 12 teas box! I’ve been wanting to try it ever since I heard of its existence. Pineapple orange banana is one of my favourite flavour combinations. Reminds me of these dole juice boxes that I used to have in my packed lunches as a child. If I found a pineapple orange banana juice box in my lunch, I knew it was going to be a good day!

When I opened my packet, like many others I smelled sweet, sticky juicy fruit gum. Not what I was expecting, but yum! It smells tropical fruity and delicious. I wish I could pick out the individual fruit flavours though.

Hot, the bubblegum flavour carries through. This one needs a long steep to get a full flavour. The fruits come out a little, but I’m guessing they’d pop the best as an iced tea. There’s a nice smooth thickness to the brew that enhances the smoothie association.

Overall, I am digging this honeybush! Easy to drink and pleasant. I think I’ll cold brew the rest.

Bio

Queer femme looking for love in the form of tea. Currently on a (seemingly never-ending) quest to convince my girlfriend of the magic of loose leaf.

Let’s see..I’m a 23 year old seemingly perma-student, having finished at university and moved on to college. I love reading. I love tea. I love reading while drinking tea. It really doesn’t take much to keep me happy.

Black tea is my all time favourite, preferably hot with milk and sugar. I like flavoured blacks the best, and my taste is embarrassingly unrefined. If it has some outlandish candy or dessert or fruity sounding name, I’m all over it. Especially things like coconut, caramel, chocolate (the usual suspects), bubblegum, cotton candy, and the list goes on. If it’s supposed to taste like something it’s not, odds are I’m going to love it. I also love a good earl grey, floral teas, and anything with currants. Love me some currants!

When it comes to iced teas I love fruity herbal blends and matés, for the most part. They are my hydration option of choice in the summer and I always have at least a glass ready for me in the fridge, if not a pitcher.

I am a self-proclaimed David’sTea fangirl, so please excuse the fact that most of my logs tend to be a little biased in their favour. I just can’t help myself, I must try all-the-tea from David’s!

I’m starting to get interested in matcha, and though I’ve loved the cups I’ve had prepared for me by others, I’ve never tried making it myself. I’m going to have to break down and order some soon, if only just to try.
