Wow, it tastes like dried pineapple! The flavors are noticeable but not overbearing. Good tea!

Reminds me of the tropical green from Good Earth (which apparently I never logged… because it isn’t on here), only simpler. It’s absolutely yummy! A nice, bold green flavor without the bitterness from steeping a little longer. The pineapple flavor has a nice presence, and the aftertaste of the tea is a combination of earthy and tangy, I think. I wanted to resteep it, but I left the bag at my fiance’s house. So far, I’m impressed with this company.
This is the other green I got at the Harney & Sons in NYC. It’s a solid blend with a VERY strong pineapple aroma that mellows when steeped. The green tea itself is very mild, which is a good thing for me—I’m not a fan of the heavy grassy taste of some of the plain greens I’ve tried. Unfortunately, I’m also not a huge fan of pineapple—but my boyfriend loves it, so there you go. I’ll brew it to make him happy but I won’t necessarily seek it out… but if you’re more like him, this is a great choice.
I got a small sample of this to see how it compared to the Bangkok tea; I think I was expecting pina colada for some reason, but there’s no coconut — it is distinctly a pineapple tea. For me it falls slightly short just because I find blends with several flavors, like Bangkok or Lime Gelato, to be more interesting. I feel about this tea the same way I feel about pineapple — it’s delicious from time to time, but not something I want every day. It’s good to have some variety in the cupboard though, and I bet this tea would pair beautifully with zucchini bread.
I decided to cold brew this last night before I went to sleep. I awoke and immediately tasted and was pleased. In the past, before researching the proper techniques to steep tea,I was guilty of steeping at too high of a temperature.
Well with cold brewing I don’t have to worry about being distracted by getting ready to go out or tending to my son or other home duties. Just set in fridge and forget for a while.
It’s a light grass taste, nit bitter and I love pineapple so that seals the deal. Unfortunately this was my last bag and I would repurchase again from this brand. They have a promotion right now that if you spend $25+ you get free shipping. :-)
