From 52teas

This week’s Tea of the Week is brought to you by Linda R. who emailed me and requested: “Frank, I’d love it if you could do something with mango and pineapple for the summer – maybe with a honeybush or a green rooibos, or even a green tea. Thanks!”

I did take the liberty of switching up the base a bit. I had this creative itch. I kept thinking, I wonder what those tropical flavors would taste like paired with a nice muscatel Darjeeling… So I decided I should find out. The answer, I believe, is: Delicious!

I started with a nice blend of first flush FTGFOP* Darjeelings, added some freeze-dried mango and pineapple and organic mango and pineapple flavors and… yummmmm! But you’ll just have to try it for yourself. Don’t miss out. This, like all of our weekly teas, is a limited edition blend.

*FTGFOP stands for Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe, or “Far Too Good For Ordinary People” as the industry joke goes. It just indicates this is a longer leaf style.

Backlog:

The aroma is reminiscent of a fruity bubblegum, this is especially apparent in the dry leaf. Once the leaves are brewed, the liquid is still fruity and bubblegum-y, but I can also pick up on notes of Darjeeling, or notes that I would expect from a Darjeeling.

I would recommend watching the temperature with this tea. When the water is too hot, the flavor is a little “off” to me and a little bitter too. A cooler temp, 195°F is what I’d recommend will result in a tastier cup.

It’s an interesting tea, I enjoyed it.

This tea smells so good, omg it’s awesome. Flavour-wise, although I am enjoying it, I do seem to find it lacking. I am having it warm, and I feel like this one’s really meant to be had iced. Adding sweetener did nothing to enhance the flavour. All in all, not a bad tea, but I’ve had better.

I received this one in my grab bag :3 It smells absolutely amazing. The flavor is pretty nice too. Both flavors can be picked out but I feel like the mango shines a bit brighter. The base of this tea is lovely :3 I like this one but next time it’s gonna be cold brewed! Whewf. I can’t handle this summer heat D:
