This is a resounding NO DICE for me, to put it bluntly. I got this in my fall mystery box and have been putting it off until now, but granted, I’ve been putting off drinking tea in general because I’ve been so busy between work, volunteering, and doing things for others that I don’t really have time for my own self to even breathe. So nothing against this tea from the start!
Opening the packet, yeah, that’s pineapple bacon. To break it down, canned pineapple and bacon bits. Steeped, this was a complete train-wreck in my mouth. Does anyone recall a DAVIDsTEA pineapple blend that smelled like vomit? Grilled Pineapple! I just looked up my tasting note and I got an initial canned pineapple scent to it as well so there is definitely a correlation. So, here I get a combination of vomit-smelling, yet off-tasting pineapple mixed with smoky artificial bacon bits. Three sips and down the drain.
