Found this next to a black kiwi flavored tea in an Asian grocery store, middle of nowhere, France. They had lots of loose leaf teas as well to try, but this one spoke to me for whatever reason. Came in a tin, then in plastic, and filled to the brim with loose black tea. Looks like a mix of Chinese blacks.
The base is quite beautiful. It’s rich and aromatic, like a soft nut, with a touch of something floral and then a tropical sweetness to it. The flavor is like a green pineapple, which is interesting to me considering I’ve only ever had it once, and it’s used only for medicinal purposes (where it’s even eaten at all). There’s a flowery note as well, plus way back there something chocolatey and rich.
It’s quite an unusual tea; think lychee or green pineapple and it’s pretty darn close. Not sure if I’ll drink the 50g of it, but it was inexpensive and easily shared.
Flavors: Cocoa, Flowers, Lychee, Pineapple, Thick, Tropical
