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.
This is my first real tasting note and I am really new to tea in general. But, I really enjoyed this tea. I noticed sometimes there is a distinct grassy taste in green tea (or maybe I steep it too long) but this didn’t have very much of that. I can taste a hint of pineapple. I wonder how this would be iced, need to try that.
In an attempt to save money, I’ve been trying to figure out which teas in my cupboard re-steep the best. This one did surprisingly well, I did the first steeping for 3 minutes each. Still plenty flavorful, could probably go for a third time if I wanted to.

Pineapple is the name of the game. I realized when I was going through the tea tins that this is a very pineapple tea kind of day, and I’m glad, because when I’m in the right mood for it, the pineapple tea is VERY good. Yet most days, it’s the almost-last-choice tea in the cupboard. I’m sure this stems from my feelings on pineapple in general: it’s a delicious treat to enjoy about five times a year, and the last thing I’d want to eat every day.
