Backlog:
Bought this tea from their store in June, but is not available on their website.
Dry leaf – smell pineapple, see pineapple chunks, strawberry. Leaves are pretty broken.
During steep: get more strawberry.
At first sip, flavors aren’t too bright, pineapple strawberry. As it cooled, pineapple disappeared and I only get strawberry. I got a odd taste at the back of my tongue.
Not sold on this tea – odd taste makes me not want to drink again. It coated my mouth with freshness in a bad way.
Ended up drinking a beer to get the taste of it out of my mouth. Also brought tea drinking to an end on a sour note.
I am concerned about drinking more of this tea and as I’m remembering drinking this tea. I think I might just discard the rest of it. There’s way too much good tea out there to deliberately subject myself to the bad ones.

Flavors: Pineapple, Strawberry

Bio

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick or traveling.

I like black, oolong, white, herbals, and raw/ripe pu’erh. I don’t drink green tea often.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

My cupboard is mostly up to date.

Ratings
85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
