I really didn’t think I would like this as much as I do. The reason I was a bit unsure was because I am not a massive fan of pineapple. Turns out I’m into pineapple and vanilla though!

I’ve had a lot of flavoured black tea recently, so switching to this white and green mix was very refreshing. Visually, The tea looks nice and light, with flecks of red peppercorn and the light pineapple. It is very appealing.

The dry and wet smell reminds me of baking. That lovely warm cupcake vanilla with the pineapple immediately puts me at home in the kitchen baking with the wife.

The liquor is a pale yellow and tastes incredibly refreshing. No one flavour stood out above the others, which is a compliment because they all balanced very well. My main fear was that the pineapple would be overpowering, but that’s definitely not the case. It’s just slightly sweet with the vanilla, and the pineapple comes in just after that.

The green and white leaves mix well here. It seems to me like the green stops the vanilla from being sickly and the white adds this butteryness that probably blends to give me that cupcake vanilla and baking association.

Very pleased I tried this tea now. One problem though, I know others in the family who would love this tea as well, and this means I am going to have to share my sample! Oh well, just an excuse to order some more ;)
