drank Pineapple Angel Food Cake by 52teas

From the Great Canadian TTB.

The dry tea smells of delicious candied pineapple. The brewed tea smells the same. It is reminding me of Butiki’s Flowery Pineapple oolong.

On first sip while the tea is hot, it is strongly candied pineapple. Again similar to Butiki’s oolong but this one is a white tea. As the tea starts to cool, it starts to lose some of the pineapple flavour and there is a bit more of a cake type flavour. I guess it could be angel food. It also becomes much thicker and creamier as it cools. I feel like the pineapple is giving way to a vanilla cream flavour.

I like this blend. The only thing I am a bit disappointed in is it is pineapple or cake, depending on how hot the tea is when you drink it. It would have been nice if you could have those two flavours together.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
