This is a queued tasting note.
This was the ‘tea of the day’ in my mom’s advent calendar and I decided that since it felt like I while since I’d drank this one I’d join her and make a cup for myself too. She asked if it took milk well, and I’ve never tried it with milk so I said I didn’t know but we could find out.
Turns out, it takes milk really well. Sometimes this tea tastes a little ‘soapy’ and the milk masks that perfectly! It’s actually like drinking a very creamy, silky smooth cup of under ripe banana tea. I say ‘under ripe’ ‘cause that slight sharpness/greenness of an under ripe banana is still a little present, though it for whatever reasons adds a lovely kind of ’exotic’ quality. Also, the pineapple was lovely! Creamy pineapple either works well or not at all; and this is working in the same way that Camellia Sinensis’ One Night In Rio! worked with the creamy Pina Colada type pineapple flavour. The little touch of soft cinnamon does wonders for adding lots of dimension to the flavour of the tea very quickly as well.
