Another from my Silver Tips Tea order… I think pineapple teas are few and far between so I had to give this one a chance. I’m glad I did! It is full of PINEAPPLE flavor, 100% cannot be confused for any other flavor. It’s simply full on ripe pineapple. There is only occasional pineapple pieces in the package, so it’s mostly flavoring but I really like it. A lingering hint of floral at the back of the sip. The base tea looks like two different black teas: A CTC black tea with another slightly bigger leaf tea (bigger than the CTC leaf size anyway). I like the combination of the two black teas… it can’t help but add some depth with two different teas. Steeping 1 1/2 teaspoons might be a little more astringent than I’d like but I don’t want less pineapple flavor in my mug. I probably could have waited a couple minutes before brewing the second steep. I like this one!
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // 18 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 3 minute steep

Flavors: Floral, Pineapple

It’a always refreshing when a fruit-flavoured tea actually tastes the way it’s supposed to!

Yep, but some other tasting notes have said this has no pineapple at all, so it might be a matter of freshness…

I think Harney had a pineapple tea called Tropical Green.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
