This tea is fascinating. I’ve never had a tea with cilantro, or much of anything with cilantro really.

The pineapple is there, but is much more subtle than some teas with pineapple. I’m guessing this is the cilantro balancing it out. It’s actually quite nice. Sometimes I find pineapple to be a bit sharp in teas and this tea has created a perfect balance of ingredients so nothing is too overpowering.

Overall a nice creamy pineapple taste. Yum!

The second steep is less flavourful but still tasty. I’m going to cold brew some of this to see how it turns out.

Update: Definitely prefer this one hot. It’s refreshing cold but I’m getting much more of a cilantro than pineapple taste.

That’s my mug!

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs, rooibos (specifically red, I’m more open to green), honeybush, and matés are not my favourite. I tend to avoid them altogether unless others find them so amazing it would be a travesty to not at least try.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
