I don’t always know how to get the best out of black-green blends. I think I didn’t quite do it here, as it feels at once sort of too astringent but also understeeped? So that’s weird.

But in my quest to think of things to do with pineapple in anticipation of my husband’s birthday and his pineapple upside-down cake request, I remembered I had a little sachet of this lingering in my desk at work, and voila!

Apart from my steeping miscalculation, I really do like the flavours of this one, and I’m getting nice notes of floral pineapple and a bit of a citrus lift. I’ll just have to brew it more carefully next time – though to be honest, it’s just hard to make a good cup of tea in the office kitchen, regardless.
